    Wade and Curry both tied in votes are they the clear debate here? Are they clearly better than peak Kobe?

    Or are defensive stalwarts with offensive versatility like Walton, Garnett, and Robinson being underrated and deserve to be ranked next?

    Or does this go in a completely different direction with offensive superpowers like Dirk/Barkley/Harden? Hard to win in the modern era without dominant offensive force.

    I asked again. Why so much emphasis on the modern era? Why does it get to define how basketball greatness is measured?

    It doesn't, it's just a hypothetical game happening today, with today's rules and emphasises

    Would you guys say Walton is like a better defensive version of Nikola. Maybe a better rebounding version of the gasols?


    I think arvydas was better than all of them, when does he get voted in? Hell, he has better range than all too, perfect for today

    Nope, people are genuinely dismissing older players because they imagine that they wouldn't be able to play now without shooting threes or whatever.

    How about taking Curry or even Durant back in the 70s with no 3 point shot? Why don't they get hurt by this as well?

    If you want to do a poll where we pretend that they are shooting a soccer ball into a peach basket with 9 players on each team be my guest.

    Well yeah you can make that kind of thread, this is his idea of peak performance, we're just playing along. Relax

    Went back and looked, looks like I first voted for him at 6 as did mrblist.

    For me, if I need someone to win me 1 game I’m going to pick someone who has one of the greatest if not the greatest performances in the finals, there’s no bigger stage in basketball.

    Jordan: GOAT
    LBJ: right behind Jordan
    Shaq: most dominant big ever
    KAJ: more accolades than the GOAT
    Wilt: Give him the nod because of his insane numbers

    After that give me the guy with the greatest finals performance who’s elite on both sides of the ball and about as clutch as it gets. I’m for damn sure not picking the following over him:

    KD: easy way out, couldn’t get it done until he made the most stacked team in history.
    Curry: never won a finals MVP, he’s been outshined 1 way or another every time. Only team to ever choke away a 3-1 lead in the finals.
    Kawhi: 2 finals MVPs, first should’ve went to Duncan probably and the 2nd wasn’t anything special with 3 of the top 5 opposing teams players out with injury.

    You should post the final tally. At least we can stop talking about that shriveling coward now.

    I voted wade thinking it would force a tie breaker between he and curry. U still voting curry?
