Mine is very similar to yours however I have some slight adjustments:

PG:
1. Magic
2. Oscar
3. Stockton
4. Isiah
5-9. Frazier, Kidd, Nash, Payton, Paul*

I think 5-9 are pretty interchangeable and an argument could be made for any of them depending upon what your team needs.

SG:
1. MJ
2. Kobe
3. Wade
4. Drexler
5. West

SF:
1. LeBron
2. Bird
3. Dr. J
4. Pippen
5. Hondo/ Baylor/Barry

PF:
1. Duncan
2. Malone
3. Barkley
4. Nowitzki
5. KG

(3-5 could be switched with relatively little objection for me)

Centers:

Kareem
Wilt
Shaq
Hakeem
Russell

Small Forward:
1. LeBron
2. Larry Bird
3. Dr. J
4. Scottie Pippen
5. Kevin Durant

Center:
1. Kareem
2. Wilt
3. Hakeem
4. Shaq
5. David Robinson

You think Durant is already ahead of Baylor or Hondo?

And D-Rob over Russell?

Not trying to say you're wrong I'm genuinely interested in what your reasoning is.

Worhty had a more rounded game than wilkins.

Remember he was drafted 1 overall over nique.

Ive always wondered what would have happen with Nique on lakers and Worhty on Atlanta.

What I'm trying to say is most of the lists so far have been pretty good.. Usually on psd lists like this have a lot of overhyped players which to me was Dominique Wilkins. Very fun to watch, but not a championship centered piece

Not trying to say you're wrong I'm genuinely interested in what your reasoning is.

Would I take KD over Baylor or Hondo? Yes. Would I take D-Rob over Russell? Yes. KD will end up the second or third greatest SF when it is all said and done imo. I only have some of the players ahead of him at this point just out of respect of their accolades. But Pippen has more of an argument than Hondo or Baylor.

It seems like Magic/MJ/LeBron/TD/Kareem are the consensus best players at their position everů

Surprised to see such agreement on PSD.

LOL. Thats who I was forgetting on my list.

Noticed that did you.

Hes right there with those guys but what stands out for me are his post season performances. Hes not as consistently dependable like Dirk/Pettit were offensively. Hes more like KG in that their games dont really translate as well into the post season, only at least KG still brings a monster defensive presence that Malone simply cant muster.

His longevity is unreal, but I always find that to be a minor factor when ranking the best players.

I would definitely put Durant in my top 5 Small Forwards. I have him at #3 behind Lebron and Bird.
