Now for the tough one: picking the NBA's All Time 25...let's make it 30. It is actually very hard to do this, because the size, strength and speed of the current guys would probably slaughter those 50 years earlier. Even in their prime, I don't think Russell, Pettit, Baylor, West & Robertson could keep up with Shaq, Duncan, Lebron, Bryant and Curry. Probably not even Hakeem, Karl Malone, Bird, Jordan and Magic.

But here goes my 30 cents:
Centers= Russell, Chamberlain, Jabbar, Moses Malone, Hakeem and Shaq.
Forwards (3/4)= Baylor, Havlicek, Erving, Cowens, Bird, McHale, K. Malone, Duncan, Garnett, Dirk, Lebron, Durant
Guards (1/2)= Oscar, West, Pistol Pete, Magic, Clyde Drexler, Michael, Stockton, Payton, Bryant, Nash, Curry, Paul (Honorable Mention: Wade, Westbrook, Gervin, Thomas)

Coaches: Auerbach, Jackson, Popovich
