Best Basketball Players of All Time


The Contenders: Page 10

181 Vince Carter Vince Carter Vincent Lamar "Vince" Carter is an American professional basketball player for the Sacramento Kings of the National Basketball Association.

Ok to all you who didn't post this man... Up yours. He is definitely one of the best of all time. At his peak, he was averaging 29.5 points per game. Not as high as Kobe or Lebron but still he is a BEAST. Slam Dunk Contest winner 3 times, Three point Shootout winner 2 times, all star appearances 4 times, and had the ball handling skills to make even the best point guards cry.

HE WAS THE BEST WHEN HE WAS YOUNG. Now he is old he can't perform as well and because he is such a high flyer he is having problems with his knees. He was an awesome dunker and shooter and deserves to be in at least the top 10.

Perfect dunker maybe he is #1 in that case in NBA history. His mid-range shooting ability is amazing in his mid30-ies... Has very good stats in 3pt shooting; excellent ball handler. He has full package that leader needs...

Come on this guy is the greatest slam dunker ever

182 Len Bias Len Bias Leonard Kevin "Len" Bias was a first-team All-American college basketball forward at the University of Maryland.

Len Bias was a great basketball player who had the opportunity to become one of the best, and better than Lebron James or Kobe Bryant. However, shortly after being drafted into the NBA, he did cocaine and died. Never got to play his first NBA game.

Was Probably going too be the 2nd best player of all time if he didn't die

R.I. P

Never made it to the nba but died of... I believe a cocaine overdose, was projected to be better than mj, R.I. P

183 Tracy McGrady Tracy McGrady Tracy Lamar McGrady Jr. is an American retired professional basketball player who is best known for his career in the National Basketball Association, where he played as both a shooting guard and small forward.

TMAC; 13 points in 35 seconds; in my opinion, one of the top 3 most talented outside scorers/slashers to ever step onto the hardwood. He needs a ring though... He is Hall of Fame bound.

he's one of the best... before lebron. camelo and wade, Tmac was the unstopable!

even though he aint got no rings he still the best nba player. he shoul be before kobe and steve cause kobe a ball hog and steve can just play offense t-mac is good at every thing if he was healthy he can play every position if he wanted to.

Deserves to be in top 20

184 Carmelo Anthony Carmelo Anthony Carmelo Kyam Anthony is an American professional basketball player for the New York Knicks of the National Basketball Association.

this guy is awesome. . He fits in easily and his shots are on point. Three pointers and everything

He is not better than Michael Jordan but his is very very good

Melo is a great player, if only he really focused on his defense! He can be a good defender but only if he puts his mind to it and does it consistently!

Most points in usa mens bassketball.
37 points in 14 mins vs nigeria.
he should be in the top 20 and below

185 Manu Ginobili

He is simply incredible. He And Duncan Were like ''Who can stop us'' Also Player Of The Olympics 2004 When He Absolutely Demolished Your USA Crapheads Why not on the list I tell you why because you don't have a brain!

Manu is a dog. He can possibly be the most unstoppable player ever. Maybe the best player

Manu is one of the best players ever, and surely the best of all from south america. Good Luck Manu in the next world championship.

186 Kevin Garnett Kevin Garnett Kevin Maurice Garnett is an American professional basketball player for the Minnesota Timberwolves of the National Basketball Association.

Garnett is the best NBA player in history. You know why. Cause' he shoots 3's he gets it in. He's not even a 3 point shooter. KG is the best middle range shooter and the best slam dunker. How could anyone beat the fierce beating on the chest and never went to college guy. He has great jumps and great jump shots. His shoots are almost a line but it's still fetched in. He shoots more than.500 from the FG. He gets about 90% of the free throw in. He is good at buzzers too. He gets more than 10 rebounds per game. He is pretty good at assists. Kobe can't even get that much rebounds. He isn't that tall and very strong. Michael Jordan might be good but only played for a few years. KG has played 15 years. He is on fire! I know he is better than Paul Pierce and Ray Allen but maybe they'll catch up. LeBron james can't beat KG. He could dunk over Yao ming ok. Now he can play until his 40's and he is still going to build his muscles. Kobe can't. He's getting weaker every day. I can't count on ...more

KG is the best! MVP... best defense. Can get 3's and also he didn't even go to college. Just play basketball the whole 24 hours. You'd better be sure KG is up to No. 1

81 is absolutely atrocious for Kevin Garnett. His two-way abilities place him neck-and-neck with Duncan as the greatest PF of all-time. There was one point where he was doing absolutely EVERYTHING for the Timberwolves, leading them in all five major statistical categories. His defensive versatility is what truly amazes me. A prime Garnett could legitimately defend both wing players and post threats. His intensity and dominance willed the Timberwolves to the playoffs, and this was without a great coach/system (Popovich), elite PG (Stockton), or a surplus of good teammates (KJ, Thunder Dan, Ceballos, etc. Those '90s Suns were amazing). Once given a good supporting cast, Garnett continued to thrive defensively, contribute offensively, and win a title. He might have even won a second one if he had not gotten injured in the '09 playoffs. Not taking away from some of Duncan's all-time playoff performances (especially against New Jersey), switch Duncan and Garnett and I see the Spurs winning ...more

187 Luke Walton

Luke walton is 28 of the top basketball players. He scores many point for his team but not as much as Michael Jordan. He's from the lakers team they are yellow and purple. He is a good for shooting for the basket.

Doesn't even know what basketball is and still managed to average double digit points one year, now that's skill

188 Boris Diaw

He plays for the Utah jazz

189 Jason Kidd Jason Kidd Jason Frederick Kidd is an American basketball coach and former player. He is currently the head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks of the National Basketball Association.

Should be in the top 10. Look at the players he's had around him and then look at his stats. The only player ever to have scored 15,000 points, 10,000 assists and 7,000 rebounds in his career. 107 triple doubles currently. Has played more play-off games than any other player that hasn't won a championship. Undefeated with the USA team, when he didn't play they didn't get gold at the olympics.

Then he was in his prime one of the best defenders in the league, and still pretty decent at it now. Plus is excellent at running the fast break, and half court offences. Oscar Robertson was playing in a different era than him, and yet he's still competitive with stats.

In my opinion the most under-rated player in the NBA.

Jesus, this list is so wrong. Kidd is one of the greatest guards, or even the greatest player to ever play! I mean it. Look at his numbers: over 100 triple doubles, 2nd all time in steals and assists, also the guard with the most rebounds. He makes smart plays and has improved his shooting like no one else. He is also the only NBA player with 18,000 points, 11000 assists, 7000 rebounds, and 2200 steals. This guy is a beast. He also got a ring.

I thnik he is in his prime one of the best defenders in the league

Very underrated. Look at his stats. That's all

191 Earl The Goat Manigault

Earl "The Goat" Manigault, Earl "The Goat" Manigault G. O. A. T
Best ever, he never turned pro. but greatest of all time.
Rebound:The legend of Earl "The Goat" Manigault one of the greatest basketball movies.
Who today can jump to the top of backboard with 6.1 (1.85), or do doubledunk in the mid air, some of the things that this legendary player could perform.

The GOAT, is so much better than MJ, Kareem, Wilt and Kobe! Michael Jordan even said himself, if Earl made it to the NBA he would be the greatest. He was 6 ft 1 and he could touch the top of the backboard. RIP Earl THE GOAT Manigault

Said by many NBA legends to be the greatest ever, including Kareem. Search for him online and you'll see.

Just confer with those whom played with him!

192 Pau Gasol

Gasol is my favorite player his dunks are awesome and he should of been up higher. He is also the best player in Spain so he should be at least 15. Also he was a captin for the Memphis and led them to many wins. He is in the Allstate game and is a very good combo with Kobe

very agile for a 7 footer - gouchesweat


193 Baron Davis

Baron davis was amazing dude
he scored so many points and was so strong

Great player

194 Rajon Rondo

He's got everything passing, stealing, lay up, dunk but he don't have shooting hand. But he's the best team player in the world.

SERIOUSLY?! Rajon Rondo should be in fourth place. I mean, have you seen his hustle. Whoever put him in 22nd place should really, and I mean really look at the next celtics game. 22nd place, come on now.

Rajon is a very consistent player and is so good at defense and attack especially dunking!

Come on rondo is one of the best passers and pretty good at steals

195 Reggie Miller

Great shooter from deep range and great in the clutch.

I remembered that He set the record for most 3pt shots made. Great shooter and should have deserved a championship.

Man I thought Reggie miller was going to be in like the top thirty he could beat Stephan curry anytime

He should be way higher because he carried Indiana on his shoulders in pressure situations

200 Drazen Petrovic

My idol, my hero, a guy who won (or was runner up) everything in Europe and with national teams, best European basketball player of all time, I can't say that he is better than MJ but, he is in top 10, against dream team in 92 Olympic games he scored more than MJ, he was underrated in Portland, but great in Nets, and with career average of 17 points, Draz is magnificent, he scored 112 in one single game, he led his team ibenka to win a title in teen years, all in all, great man and player, our hero, drazen petrovic

Best European Player of all time, I don't care what people say about him in the comparison to Nowitzki, the fact is Drazen opened the gate to the NBA for European and international players. He invented a new style of basketball, a few experts saw him as the best player of the world during his Career in Europe. RIP

The best... Search in YouTube espn once brothers... It's worth it... You will be moved... You will cry

His work and talent still inspires.
