    1 -- Kobe Bryant - nobody's clutcher

    2 -- Hakeem Olajuwon - tough one, they are pretty even, like Hakeem better

    3 -- Julius Erving better all around

    4 -- Dirk Nowitzki - best Euro ever

    5 -- Gary Payton - give the edge to the Glove for his defense

    6 -- Clyde Drexler - may be biased but he was my dad's favourite growing up

    7 -- Shaquille O'neal - tough comparison, different era's I'll give the edge to shaq

    8 -- Isiah Thomas - better all around player

    9 -- Dominique Wilkins - more exciting

    10 -- Grant Hill - woulda been a beast if he never got hurt

    11 -- Steve Nash - I'm Canadian eh.

    12 -- Allen Iverson - quite possibly the quickest pure scorer of all timee

    13 -- Dwight Howard - not even close IMO

    14 -- Kevin Garnett - when it comes to big or small of same caliber you gotta go with the big

    15 -- David Robinson - same situation, Lebron is overhyped, plus #50 was my fav growing up

    16 -- Vince Carter - VC was unreal in his prime

    1 -- Kobe Bryant or Larry Bird But this a a tough one.

    2 -- Hakeem Olajuwon or Tim Duncan Another tough one.

    3 -- Julius Erving or Moses Malone

    4 -- Charles Barkley or Dirk Nowitzki Maybe the toughest yet. CB was beachin.

    5 -- Chris Paul or Gary Payton

    6 -- John Havlicek or Clyde Drexler I pretty much didn't really pick. With all due respect to two great players, if these are the franchise players the franchise is probably not doing too well.

    7 -- Shaquille O'neal or Wilt Chamberlain Not even close

    8 -- Isiah Thomas or Rick Barry

    9 -- Dominique Wilkins or Bernard King If BK did not get hurt ... simply unstoppable

    10 -- Tracy Mcgrady or Grant Hill

    11 -- Jason Kidd or Steve Nash

    12 -- Kevin Johnson or Allen Iverson

    13 -- Dwight Howard or Walt Frazier

    14 -- Kevin Garnett or Dwyane Wade

    15 -- Lebron James or David Robinson Lebron or David Robinson? Really?

    16 -- Sam Jones or Vince Carter


    one strange list of choices.

    1 -- Kobe Bryant or Larry Bird - better defensive player, better all around game
    2 -- Hakeem Olajuwon or Tim Duncan - longer, more athletic and more versatile on both ends of the floor
    3 -- Julius Erving or Moses Malone - different positions, but Malone is just a better player, period
    4 -- Charles Barkley or Dirk Nowitzki - tough one, but Barkley had two skills... scoring and rebounding and he was a fierce competitor
    5 -- Chris Paul or Gary Payton - another tough one, but I think Paul's career will eventually eclipse Payton as Paul has put up some of the greatest statistical seasons of any PG and really hasn't had much of a team yet
    6 -- John Havlicek or Clyde Drexler - Havlicek willed his teams to championships and Drexler was notorious for disappearing in the postseason as a No. 1
    7 -- Shaquille O'neal or Wilt Chamberlain - Shaq proved it in the postseason and Wilt didn't IMO
    8 -- Isiah Thomas or Rick Barry - Barry was the better scorer, but Isiah was a superior distributor and won two titles, willing the Pistons to championships over young Jordan
    9 -- Dominique Wilkins or Bernard King - both were deadly scorers and neither accomplished anything in the postseason, but Wilkins lasted longer
    10 -- Tracy Mcgrady or Grant Hill - McGrady's best seasons were among the greatest of any perimeter players in NBA history; Hill is the better defender but has only one comparable season to T-Mac before injuries took their toll
    11 -- Jason Kidd or Steve Nash - I really wanted to go Nash here, but Kidd's combination of elite defense and distribution made it too difficult... Nash was a better scorer, though... a coin flip
    12 -- Kevin Johnson or Allen Iverson - Johnson was a great scorer and point guard, but Iverson was consistently considered one of the most deadly scorers and a top 5 player for a good portion of his career
    13 -- Dwight Howard or Walt Frazier - I'm going Walt now if only because we don't have enough sample size from Dwight just yet. If he continues to improve his offensive game, I think Dwight would be the guy to take.
    14 -- Kevin Garnett or Dwyane Wade - Garnett toiled away on mediocre teams for years, but was an elite defensive big man and scorer. Wade's injuries make me concerned how much longer he'll last.
    15 -- Lebron James or David Robinson - Both are athletic freaks, but Lebron is a once in a lifetime talent who has yet to scratch the surface. He will win multiple championships as a No. 1. Robinson did not.
    16 -- Sam Jones or Vince Carter - Jones was the No. 1 or No. 2 option on 10 freakin' championship teams. VC sure does dunk well. This is the easiest one to pick, by far...

    The guy you didn't pick, Larry Bird, was "clutcher"
