2Kobe BryantKobe Bean Bryant is an American retired professional basketball player. He played his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association.

Best Ever To Play The Game And Very Vicious. Always Wants To Win Even An Exhibition Game.

His hunger to succeed and work ethic are legendary & I'm not even gonna talk about all his skills.

One of the most passionate players of the 2000's

Kobe is the best and always will be screw mj

3Dywane Wade

I'm not sure about 3 but it's debatable can't just say he doesn't belong as a 3 time champion Finals Mvp,11 time all star, 8 all nba first team selections, scoring title, all defense awards, Gold medals, etc can't just push his career to the side based on West being the logo but 1 title to show for it or Iverson who's close but no titles hurts his case... When a player like James leaves a team with players based around him and his style of play I can see the drop off but he's made the playoffs once the team was based around him and Bosh... It's debatable but people act like he shouldn't be in the conversation as 3rd best...

Wade is not number 3 shooting guard of all time. How do you go from MJ to Kobe to Wade... You don't. Wade is not over Allen Iverson, Joe Dumars, Jerry West, Oscar Robertson, or Reggie Miller. Allen Iverson is the reason people wear sleeves, get tattoos, cornrows etc. If it wasn't for Allen Iverson do you think Wade would even be wearing a sleeve.Also Allen Iverson carried that 76ers team to a NBA finals by himself the only reason they lost the finals was because they faced Kobe and Shaq, but soon as Lebron left Miami the heat didn't even make the playoffs. Don't say he is better than Iverson because he has rings because whenever he got his rings look at who the hell was on his team Shaq, Lebron, Chris Bosh is Iverson had Lebron and Chris Bosh he would have got a couple rings to. Jerry West is the damn logo and your telling me Wade with his bad knees who can't even shoot is above him? No Wade is a great player and he does deserve to be on this list but not at number 3

Are you crazy puting Kobe in second is crap Wade maybe hasn't conquered MJ yet but when he wins 4 more championships who will be talking now. Kobe is overrated. Wade is much more quick, strong, and athletic than both of them. If you look at them tree statistically you will realize who is the best all around how passes the best who blocks the best and who has the most potential to win games all of those are Wade who still hasca out 6 years left. KOBE IS DONE

Greatest heat player ever and one of the most clutch players I've ever seen

4Allen IversonAllen Ezail Iverson is an American retired professional basketball player who played for 14 seasons in the National Basketball Association.

A.I. is just ill. How is he not even in the 5?! HE J'ED Jordan! And by far the best SG to never win a championship... Yet...

Top 3 no matter what, M.J. #1 Kobe #2 (longer career and same team entire career) Allen "THE ANSWER" Iverson #3 ( at 5'11" tall A.I. was and or is the toughest most electrifying player to ever play the game, changed the the nba FOREVER!

5Clyde Drexler

Clyde drexler was great on defense and offense. Jordan wouldn't have won any championships without pippen and rodman.

6Jerry WestJerry Alan West is an American retired basketball player who played his entire professional career for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association.

How is Jerry West (aka THE LOGO) 6th on this list? that's just worst he should be TOP 3 if not TOP 2...just wish the younger generations would look up old school players - Henz0827

8Ray AllenWalter Ray Allen, Jr. is a former American professional basketball player who is currently a free agent.

The best pure shooter of all time. He surpassed the record of Reggie Miller.
He is surely one the greatest shooting guard of all time

Ray Allen is just a knockdown shooter. No way is he better than Reggie "knick killer" miller or tmac

10Pete Maravich

Pistol Pete was a basketball wizard. The greatest scorer in college basketball history. He knew what was going to happen on the court before anyone else. One of the smartest players of all time.

11Tracy McGrady

Tracy McGrady should be number 2. But all those injuries are what kept him from being the best player of all time. If he would have stayed healthy he would be the best player of all time. No one can touch t-mac. Have you ever seen 15 points in less then a minute against one of the best teams ever the San Antonio Spurs. Insane. Long live the T-Mac Greatest NBA Player of all time yeah I said it

Kobe said he was the hardest for him to guard so how isn't he in the top ten

Should be top 10, he was arguably better than kobe in the 2000's before injuries detailed his career. Still a 2x scoring champ

12George GervinGeorge Gervin, nicknamed "The Iceman," is an American retired professional basketball player who played in both the American Basketball Association and National Basketball Association for the Virginia Squires, San Antonio Spurs, and Chicago Bulls.

Most underrated guard in history. His scoring leader contest with David Thompson (another underrated) was classic.

Awesome player on a awesome team

14Vince Carter

Statistically at the end of his career vince carter will most likely eclipse 25,000 pts 6,000 pts 5,000 reb 2,000 3P made.. Along with 8 all stars and being the face of 2 franchises (as well as being 2nd all time scorer by total points with nets and raptors) 1st if you want to count by ppg or PER, he's clearly in the top 10 list.

Carter led NJ to the Finals...he led TOR with no help he helped Howard get to his 1st Finals he made the clutch shot against SA

15Dwyane WadeDwyane Tyrone Wade Jr. is an American professional basketball player for the Miami Heat of the National Basketball Association.
16Manu Ginobili

One of my favorites and a good all around player

Manu should be in top 3! Reasons: 2004 Olympics. (Manu vs Prime Iverson, Prime Duncan, Upcomming Superstars = Wade, James & Anthony + NBA All-Stars) and some NBA championships

I think Ginobli is a top play maker. Make almost impossible paths to the basket.

17Hall Greer

Earl the Pearl Monroe and Walt Frazier should have been on this list and Frazier should have also been on the list for point guards, he was such a complete guard.
