    The more i think about how the game is played today, I wonder if we went too heavy on bigs early. Hes asking us to build a team for today

    I'm torn on the wings. How do you guys rank them?

    I can't vote for Giannis but the other 4 are all deserving here. I almost feel like because Russell went at #11 that Bill Walton should go at #12.

    Plus when do the gaggle of PF (KG/Dirk/Barkley/Malone) all go and do they go as a package deal or is there separation in between them? Thoughts?

    Then you have Big O / West / Baylor that dominated their eras and Big O and West could shoot so I'm not really that concerned about if their games would translate. Soooo... I've narrowed it down to those 12 guys. lmao
    Gimme Kawhi then. I think his apex was his last year with the Spurs before the Zaza incident, he was the rightful MVP of the league and was putting a scare into GS before that. T-Dot sealed that level of play and hes been a true 2-way monster for the Clips. I'd take any of these over your swings

    Shockingly I think I agree with this. Why wouldn't you want Kawhi? He gives you everything and takes away nothing.

    Never saw Baylor or Erving. Iíve seen some full games of Walton on tape and feel like it is possible he should be gone already. As for T-Mac and Chuck I just think KL and prime Dirk were better.

    It's peak. Oscar was great but what was great about him was consistency. You really don't seem to grasp the idea of PEAK, given that you started all this, do you?

    The only recent player that should get a shout is Durant. But not this high.

    Played in the same era. Oscar won an MVP. All-around dominant and has stats that clearly show he would be able to translate to the modern game... I know you are older than most people on here but were you old enough to actually watch them play? Everything I have read has Oscar rated as the better player.

You don't get to magically give Booker a 70 point game when he is going to be playing in an all-time game with legends. He wouldn't be able to do that against elite competition and that's why no one would even consider him here. It's not who had the best box score, it is who is the best player.
    This was pretty much my exact response to his post. Jeez, this isnít retroactive.

Thats been the consistent trend.

    In their last year together, when KD got tired of running the free flowing and highjacked it to get his own more often, the team suffered. KD gets hurt, the team goes back to running the team offense with an old Iggy as his replacement and they finish off the Rockets/Blazers with ease to make it back to the Finals and even steal 2 games once there.

    If Curry were the one who had gotten hurt, we might've seen the Rockets or Blazers in the Finals and they definitely get swept vs the Raps.
    Is Curry going to be guaranteed to have Kerr coaching and Klay/Dray/AI playing perfectly to his strengths? Curry is right around the corner but Durant is going to be Durant any and everywhere he goes.

    Oscar Robertson claims that Elgin Baylor is the greatest ever.
    Just saying.

    Then I don't trust his judgment and his opinion is invalid on this matter.
