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

He can do the dream shake like Hakeem. He can dunk like Wilkins. He can shoot like Miller. He has clutch like Kobe. He can pass like Magic. What sets him apart from all these players, is that no one hates him, and everybody wants him on their team; fans and players.

Hands down the best, career averages are unheard of, his fingers covered in rings, makes it rain threes, bangs on anyone in his way

He is a lot better than every other player that has ever stepped on the Court!

The G.O.A.T., enough said. More rings than Kevin Durant

268 Arvydas Sabonis

The best center of all time. In his prime he was better than Shaq, Bill Russell and Kareem Abdul Jabbar.

It's really funny how he is past Pau Gasol, Chris Bosh and Dwight Howard in this list... Even when he was 40 years old he would destroy them. And can you imagine him being NBA before 1986 injuries? He would really be the best center of ALL TIME.

Arvydas Sabonis is a talented man from Lithuania and he's great at basketball. His team mates are also talented and they work on really well and give advises to each other, this man never let me done! Amazing basketballer

He has the power

269 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

270 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!

273 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!

274 Mario Chalmers

Best three point shoter of the heat and next to Ray Allen boss at stealing the in all the games

275 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.

276 Tracy McGrady Tracy McGrady

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.

T-Mac could easily be a top 3 player of all time first Jordan then Kobe then T-Mac if it wasn't for the injuries

278 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

He is not the near the top of the list yet but he very well could be. I mean seriously, this is like only he's 3rd year and he is one of the best today. He was UK's team. No one should be able to say he sucks. His team does but he doesn't. He can't make the team win all the time.

He is one of the best basketball player because he knows how to steal the ball and he isn't a ball hog. He knows to block shots

This is so bs!.
He should be at the top of the list he is better that steve nash way better than steve nash

#enough said

Future MVP and HOF
