Best Basketball Players of All Time

Julius Erving DR. J is the first player make a ART on a dunk that's why people love him people said he is the heart of the city Earned an NBA championship ring, won an NBA MVP award, went to 11 NBA all star games and took home the all star MVP twice... and that doesn't even count the two ABA titles, two ABA MVP awards and 6 ABA all star games. forever... or his famous dunk from the free through line... now there is history! DR. J! Also greatest flyer, dunker and hangtimer Ever! Class act
Dr. J was as smooth as they come. An inventor of sorts, every night was like watching a man create something from scratch that no one had ever seen. If you add up career points and steals, no one beats Dr. J -- and only a handful have scored more career points in total. He took a sport from its hum-drum history of white-assed backboard shots and turned it into an entertainment machine. He deserves to break into the top 10.
I don't know how Julius Erving is behind D-Wade because Wade hasn't proved himself as an elite NBA player. He only won two titles and he couldn't win without another all-star. 2006-Shaq 2012-LeBron James
Dr J changed the shape of the game from way above the hoop. His dunks were creative and graceful. Julius was one of the NBA's ambassadors who carried the torch from Kareem and West to Bird, Magic and Jordan.
Not even in the top 10. Dirty Shame The man changed the game by revolutionizing playing above the rim. He was Michael before Michael and is well deserving of a spot in the top 5 above wade and iverson
Before Jordan there was Dr.J. equal ability to Jordan in the air and that is saying something! He scored at will and entertained the fans like few ever did. Totally dominated the paint.
Dr. J revolutionized the game like no other. He is the man that laid the groundwork for high fliers like MJ. He also won a ring on a team that didn't have much talent.
DR J was not only one of the NBA's greatest but also one of the ABA's greatest he won the first pro ABA slam dunk contest by dunking from the free throw line
He is better than all these people think he made basketball better and dwayne wade are you kidding, come on he should be on the top
Doctor J practically created the dunk which changed basketball forever and guys like MJ and Magic looked up to him and wished they could play like him. Best player in history. Period.
Man dr. j is a boss he was unstoppable think about all those crazy dunks he could throw down on your head
Had a free throw line dunk which Jordan and Ibaka surpassed but he won some championships.
He Was The First Who Dunk From The Freethrow line And he's The Creater of the SLAM DUNK
dr.J made tha 76ers what they are today.... deserve better placement in da list...
could score at will -- all who came after him tried to mimmick his greatness
He is the best doctor J he has dunks that are crazy and won 11 nba all star games or the amazing dunk all the way from free throw line can't stop him
I want julius erving to be top 1
Didn't even like basketball until I saw the Doc play. enough said.
Is rank by fox sport 3 behind Michael Jordan and Oscar Robertson
His generous personality held him back from being in the top 3...
Awesome to say the least
Dr. J was first basketball player to have his numbers retired by 2 different teams (#32 - Nets, #6 - Sixers).
Keep on rocking the craddle.
Beastly nickname Dr. J.
