    When Kawhi wins his 3rd title and finals mvp in 2020 with Clips, where you rank him?

    I say Top 10 all time.


    Thoughts.

    To me he would solidify my opinion of best player in the NBA. Right now I feel like he's got a sweaty 3 finger grasp of it.

    As for all time.....whew. Top 20 lock?

    Top 20 all time lock if he wins his 3rd ring...notice if he wins with the Clippers that will be 3 rings with 3 different teams. To me that would solidify him as the best player in the whole NBA bar none.

    That would be fair if he wins both Finals MVP and his 3rd title but if he then went on to win his 4th ring after that back to back then he would be top 5 all time in my book

    All of the Top 10 alltime greats have in common is championships. You cant just boost Kwahi cause he won 3 with different teams. You have guys like Bird, Magic, Shaq, Duncan who all won 3 or more. Kwahi needs win another ring as well as to do more individually, he only has 3 allstar appearances and 3 All-NBA selections. I would say Top 20 without the 10+ AllNBA/Allstar appearances that the Top 10 greats all have in common

    I think if Kawhi were to win his 3rd title next season he'll be in that rarefied air of greats to where nothing short of championships will be able to boost his ranking. Guys like LeBron, KD, Curry, Harden, etc. The only thing moving them higher is titles at this point.

    Lmfao.

    Kawhi is so hilariously overrated right now man.

    I don't think there's even a clear case for him as the NBA's best player. Talking about a never MVP here.

    How about an MVP or even 5 All NBA 1st Teams? His resume' is extremely limited. He is not close to the air some are discussing here.

    If that lucky shot against Philly bounces out and they lose in OT nobody is discussing him as the best player in the world, let alone some of the nonsense we are seeing in threads like these. He wasn't even particularly impressive in the Finals.

    I wasnt being serious lol

    Id say hes top 3 for sure right now with an engaged LeBron and healthy KD probably in front. If he wins this year Ill have him as the best though, regular season MVP or not

    Exactly! People were saying he was top 20 or top 15 ever after that finals win. Hes a hell of a player but his finals performance was nothing spectacular really and his 2014 finals MVP may be one of the weakest weve seen, at least in the last 20-30 years.

    The numbers speak for themselves. His advanced numbers the last 3 postseasons put him up there amongst the best all-time. He is already a 2x DPOY, a 2x Finals MVP and a 2x Champion. If he were to win a 3rd one, chances are he makes an All-NBA team while doing it (if not an MVP possibly), maybe a DPOY, etc.

    That's 3 titles before the age of 30 and as many championships as Steph. You seem to be judging his resume right now, but if he does what he did this year next year, he will shoot up the rankings. Or put another way, how many people actually in the NBA at the moment would have a better all-time resume? The only 3 I can see are LeBron, Steph and KD. Maybe I'm missing someone but that's not very many.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. I think there's a really clear 14. Then there are three modern players after them fighting for positioning amongst each other and potentially that group.

    Personally, here's my list:

    LeBron
    MJ
    Kareem
    Russell
    Wilt
    Bird
    Duncan
    Hakeem
    Shaq
    Magic
    Jerry West
    Oscar
    Kobe
    Moses

    And then you have the following three players in slots 15-17. I think any of them could vault as high as the top five, but they're also competing with each other specifically. Right now, this is how I'd order them:

    Curry
    Durant
    Kawhi

    But they are VERY close, and I expect to reevaluate that grouping every year from now until the end of their careers. If Kawhi wins another title and Finals MVP this year, he probably vaults both of them. If Curry wins another regular-season MVP and drags this Warriors team on a meaningful playoff run, that means a lot to me. If Durant manages to become the first player to really truly overcome a torn Achilles, then that will mean a lot to me as well. But that's where I'd have them now.

    KL will never be better than Shaq or Kareem. Hed have to surpass Shaq in statistical dominance before he could have an argument and that aint happening.
