    Bill Simmons' Top-25 players of All-Time

    Just wondering what you thought about this list. Who is too high, who is too low, and how would you rank them? You can give a Top 10, 15, 25, etc. BTW, for any NBA fan out there you should really get Bill's book of basketball. It is really good and very entertaining.

    1. Michael Jordan
    2. Bill Russell
    3. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
    4. Magic Johnson
    5. Larry Bird
    6. Wilt Chamberlain
    7. Tim Duncan
    8. Jerry West
    9. Oscar Robertson
    10. Hakeem Olajuwon
    11. Shaquille O'Neal
    12. Moses Malone
    13. John Havlicek
    14. Elgin Baylor
    15. Kobe Bryant
    16. Julius Erving
    17. Bob Pettit
    18. Karl Malone
    19. Charles Barkley
    20. LeBron James
    21. Bob Cousy
    22. Kevin Garnett
    23. Isiah Thomas
    24. Scottie Pippen
    25. John Stockton

    The list is basically a mess, but just a few that caught my eye:

    - Duncan is way too high.
    - LeBron is too high.
    - Kobe is too low - Olajuwan 5 spots above Kobe? Duncan 8 spots above him? No.
    - 4 of the top 8 / 5 of the top 11 are Lakers (Kobe should be top 10)

    lol at the Duncan and Dream hate, both easily got a better resume than current Kobe, and no way should Kobe be above Shaq either. Big O and Jerry West are overrated, Shaq bests them both.

    If you actually read his book instead of glancing at his list, he does mention in the book that he wrote it before the NBA Championship and that if Kobe does win the title without Shaq, he is automatically bumped into the top 10 All-Time or something. He possibly said top 8, but I forgot, read it a while ago.

    Don't think Lebron James should be that high YET. Duncan is a little too high I would put Shaq ahead of him.
