Best Basketball Players of All Timerhamilt
The Contenders: Page 2XW
He was the big support for Michael Jordan. He was such a all around player and one of the best defensive players bulls ever had. When Michael was not around he led the team for almost all category.
2nd best after Michael Jordan, people don't realise that for many of the bulls games Jordan needed pippen!
Was essential to MJ being the dominating force that he was.
One of the most underrated guys in the history of basketball. Without him the Bulls would never have been 6 times champions. Nor Jordan would have won 6 rings him. - LordHummungusV30 Comments
Stephen curry is awesome why not put him on the top ten
Curry is not only a good player on the court but he is an amazing person. He respect his wife and children unlike Kobe. He is a basketball player I look up to. He came to an NBA conference being close to the last person picked to go but his strive and power for the game made him to be how good he is today. He pushed harder than any one of the other people there. He is unselfish and has great awareness if he needs to score to help the teams situation he will but still shares the ball. He is my favorite player and is pushing me to try to be the player I want to be.
Stephen Curry is a very unique player, he has many things yet to try and go forward to advance to be the one of the greatest players on the NBA. His shooting skills are very mesmerizing, his deep 3-point shots are very consistent and shocking. He is a player that doesn't play for himself but for the rest of the team. Right now he is considered to be the best shooter on the league, Why? Look at his shots, they are very incredible. It doesn't look like he is a human but a cyborg shooter or a video game character controlled by a professional gamer. But seriously, he is a great player.
Michael Jordan should be in last and Stephen curry should be in firstV668 Comments
Kyrie Irving a future nba mvp and future allstar mvp and well as an nba champion.
Have you seen this guy he's the future he's going to be the greatest of all time.
Some people don't like him because he has the same stats every season but that's because his team gets better every year and this year he has to share the spotlight with lebron James and Kevin love.
He should be before curry cause Kyrie is way better the curry because curry only has a shot and had horrible defenseV76 Comments
Dwight Howard is my favorite player. He's the best. He's an amazing shot blocker and an amazing dunker. Superman is really good. He's on the Orlando Magic and like they're good. They would be terrible with Dwight Howard. Go Dwight Howard!
When Dwight Howard is on the court you know that he's going to get 5 blocks and 10 dunks. He should of been in the Dunk Content in 2011. The Orlando Magic will win a championship in a few years
Dwight Howard is Beast! So what he's only 6"11 He can rebound over any 7footer. Is the best center of all time with Shaq and Moses Malone behind him. He can play D like I never saw before. And the only reason magic got out of the playoffs so early is because Superman was hurt. That's also why the sixers beat the bulls. Dwight is the best player I have saw in my Life! Superman is my Favorite player!
Dwight Howard is way overrated. They say he's a great rebounder but how can you be a great rebounder when you average ten a game and Bill Russell averaged 20 throughout his careerV22 Comments
Greatest 3pt shooter and history, good playmaker, very special. He hasn't been with a good team, now that he is with the Celtics it just boosts his career,
What of the all time best shooters in the game and has one of th fastest releases I have ever seen
I recken that ray allen should be number 11 just in front dwane wade because I've seen them play eash other ray allen scored 49 out of 83
but dwane wade only scored 32 out of 76.
He is a good playerV30 Comments
RUSSELL WESTBROOK IS BETTER THAN HALF THE PLAYERS HE SHOULD BE UP WAY BETTER THAN JOHN WALL UPDATE LIST AND ACTUALLY WATCH THUNDER GAME
Russell Westbrook should be number one of the year
Are these people stupid! Russell is the top 5. No other player in nba is as fast as he is. And his ball handling is incredible. He can also shoot and dunk
Just an amazing rising star.V68 Comments
Any one who says John would have been nothing with out Karl (or the other way around) should be shot. Best point guard of all time. Most assists ever, most steals ever, best shorts ever.
Best pure point guard of all time. Made passing and defense look easy. As far as fundamentals go John is the best of all time, his great basketball IQ led to his longevity. He was an inspiration to white kids everywhere, showing them that just because they are white doesn't mean they can't FLAT OUT BALL!
John Stockton at 29 is a joke. Easily in the top 10 to play the game, probably top 5. Behind Jordan, Magic, Wilt and Jabbar in my opinion.
John is the 12th nba player of all timeV20 Comments
Chris paul is one of the best point guards. But then again everyone has their opinion who cares who's better at this or that just have your best b-ball player and like it
Chris Paul is an amazing player and should be up in the top 20! He doesn't deserve to be down here! He scores points and assists with style! He deserves better.
He should definitaly be higher than rondo he has the drives but can shoot plus gets Moore assists with worse teammates
He is the point god and the goatV34 Comments
The least you could do is put this guy in top ten!
The second highest scorer of all time he topped Michael Jordan! That's an amazing feet!
Most people don't realize this, but check his stats. Ridiculous!
If Karl Malone would have stayed with the Utah Jazz for his final year he would have been the highest scoring NBA player in history.V17 Comments
Isiah Thomas is nice Point Guard also like chris paul or Jason Kid but chris paul is the number 1 Fans of Isiah Thomas Thomas gets a lot of crap for destroying the New York Knicks and it�s a valid point. He and James Dolan combined is what pushed me over the edge to no longer being a Knicks fan, but that�s besides the point. As a basketball player, Zeke was amazing and one of my favorite players of all-time. He led the Bad Boys to two NBA titles, and despite his size, was the biggest player for those title teams.
Isiah was a great player and he deserves mor than to be number 94. Isiah was one of the greatest players of his time and was better than half of the people on this list before him. Also he is my number one and he earned his way there so whoever made this list should think where they put people next time because it makes a difference.
Come on, we are talking about what he did on the court not after he retired. One of the best point guards ever.
He was A BAD BOY Chi Towns finest a Indiana Legend one of Bobby Knights best products ever - mountainhawkV18 Comments
This whole thread was made by people who do not know crap about Basketball! Charles Barkley is the player with the highest Basketball IQ of all times. A 6'6 forward who ranks in the all time's leaders on rebounds and points! WTF and you have Yao, Pau Gasol, Carmelo Anthony, Rondo, Dwight Howard, McGrady, and many more above Charles LOL! Oh Lord this is sad!
Charles is really undervalued because he had such a big mouth. In terms of his ability, he is closer to top 10 than number 36. He was as good as Kevin Durant, not as good a defender as LeBron, but better in the post and a better overall shooter than James. He is a guy that people don't remember well enough.
23.000 points, 12,000 rebounds, 4,000 assists. Only 1 of four to pull that off and he's not even in the top 10? Joke.
Just because he talked a bit of smack. Guy had heart... And game! He used to dominate players half a foot taller than him so had something to back that mouth up with!
My favourite basketball playerV8 Comments
Whoever said that Adonal Foyle was the most talented center of all time must be smokin somethin. And whoever said Jerome James is the greatest center of all time is even dumber. Ewing is top 50 or so and don't even vote for Foyle or James there average players. - Chris-1
How can you forget patrick ewing he is one of the best centers of that time and to not put him there is just crazy.
Patrick is extremely underrated. Did not play with all stars or hall of fame guys. Carried the Knicks on his back for many years.
He is a great player and deserves betterV3 Comments
Nash is a beast what can he not do this year he is doing everything when he first got drafted by the suns they made a huge mistake now look at if he would have played so many years there would be number 1 named Steve Nash
STEVE NASH IS DEFINITELY AT LEAST THE 2ND BEST BASKET BECAUSE HE AVERAGES 12 ASSISTS A GAME AND IS THE 2ND HIGHEST STEAL LEADER
He is so good he could make every shot but instead he passes it to other people and he gets no credit for after this year 4 assists titles in a row
Ball handling toV28 Comments
How does Elgin Baylor not get on this list. Highest season scoring average in history, highest point total in an NBA finals game, one of the true greats to ever play the game. - thebige
Wow and you put Allen Only Practice Iverson above Elgin Baylor. I demand a recount and we send the results to Iverson in the minor league.
He could shoot off balance and I believe with his eyes closed
Easily in the Top 10.V4 Comments
Paul Pierce should be higher than a lot of people here because of his absolutely dominant mid-range shooting and what he can do in clutch time. He led a Celtics team with no talent to the playoffs multiple times but was screwed over by the media because he's not Kobe ( a ballhog) or LeBron. The Truth also has respect from pretty much every player and coach in the NBA. Yeah, Kobe's a great player but people don't respect him like Pierce. Another thing about him is his toughness. Nobody in the game today played hurt like number 34 did. He got stabbed in the face and, a month later, led his Celts to a key victory over the Pistons. Pierce cracked 4 teeth against Nash's Suns, slipped in a mouthpiece and returned to win the game. The next day, he went through 7 hours of surgery. The day after that, he made the game-winning shot against Charlotte. Pierce also stayed loyal to his team (unlike Melo, Howard, Carter, LeBron and Ray Allen) and made a special bond with his tema and the fans like ...more - bishop.moore07
Pierce has led Celtics to greatness multiple times
Paul Pierce was always the top prospect, and he has lead the Celtics to greatness
Legends don't deserve top be 228 they deserve top 100V18 Comments
Moses was better than shaq ever will be! Moses didn't need to be over weight to get his rebounds the man used talent. He's the reason the sixers won it in 83!
Moses was better than so many on this list. Who rebounded better. Great scorer top 10. It amaze me how you distant Moses. The first straight out of High School
Best defensive center to ever live - willums
BOB COUSY IS MR. BASKETBALL. HIS EXPERTISE IN SCORING, PASSING, SETTING UP
PLAYS, AND SKILLS HAS NOT BEEN SURPASSED BY ANYONE. RAJON RONDO IS THE ONLY ONE I'VE SEEN THAT MAY DO IT. THE REST ARE GOOD IN SOME AREAS BUT NOT ALL AREAS LIKE THE COUZ
Sd be way further up the list why is earl boykins ahead of him is it because hes short (sympathy)
revolutionized passing, led league in assists for 8 straight years
Thank you pak youV5 Comments
Ervin/Magic Johnson is one of the best players ever he should be in the top 5
This is not a accurate list he should be in top 5
Magic Johnson is the same thing
Should be in top 5 no doubtV8 Comments
Ten time All-Star. Took College teams to Final four twice. Took NBA teams to Finals three times winning once. Played on the original Dream Team. Very athletic scorer who could hit the three and play good defense well. Best rebounding guard of his era. Dunked on the highest rim in history.
They call him "Clyde the Glide" for a reason
Clyde the glide! One of the best shooting guards to ever play the game. Probably 3rd behind MJ and Kobe.
He's the dunkerV3 Comments
Dominique wilkins was a great basketball player he should not be in 51 place he should be in the top 3 players of all time
Dominique should definitely be top 5. Michael Jordan said he was the only one ever that impressed him. I mean most likely Stephen Curry won't make the Hall of Fame, and he's rated ahead of him. Only because he plays now
Best Hawks player ever! He deserved way more credit than the lousiness he got. Totally beast and is arguably the best dunker ever.
