Best Basketball Players of All Time


The Contenders: Page 3

41 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

44 David Robinson David Robinson David Maurice Robinson is an American former professional basketball player, who played center for the San Antonio Spurs in the National Basketball Association for his entire career.

Respectable player of the San Antonio Spurs for many years.

Am I reading this list correctly... Gervin 60, Robinson 61, Kemp 62, and Payton at 63. Wow this is ridiculous. come on Irving is at 25. These guys r legends. Irving has done nothing in his career; he is yet to play in a postseason game. This list is a joke

Great player best player I have ever seen play

Give me this list so I can put it in a garbadge can

45 Shawn Kemp

Best in game dunked of all time! Hands down well next to vince and d wilkens

The Reign Man his shoes were so comfortable and dope his dunks were electric and moved crowds he is the reason why people loved the Super Sonics - mountainhawk

The best dunker and good fighter in 90's. He created one of the best duo (with gary payton)in nba ever.

Shawn kemp should be better or in the top ten

46 Clyde Drexler Clyde Drexler

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.

He was an awesome SG in the MJ era I say about number 20

They call him "Clyde the Glide" for a reason

He's the dunker

48 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.

49 Kevin Love Kevin Love Kevin Wesley Love is an American professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association.

Kevin Love doesn't deserve top 10 or even 20 but, he is way better then half these guys on the list. You have majorly under rated him, he can shoot he is great in the paint. He does lack Defensive abilities but come on 1/4 of the guys above don't start or are even welly known.

Kevin love is amazing. He is near top in scoring and rebounds. His outlet passes are amazing. His 31 31 game. His progress is not slowing and he surely will become one of the all time greats. Also note his 3-point contest victory and beating out dwight howard for an all star starting spot.

I'm sorry but he doesn't deserve to be in the top 50

Love should be in the top 15 he's outstanding

50 Bernard King

Greatest basketball player of all time. The guy couldn't be stopped. Magic Johnson was scared of him. His magical dunks wowed crowds all over the world.

Bernard King should be at least in the top 20?

He is way better then how you put him

51 James Harden James Harden James Edward Harden, Jr. is an American professional basketball player for the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association.

Harden becomes the prototype scoring guard in an offensive scheme. Harden does not consistently preform proficiently as a defensive guard. The versatility for todays games requires the shooting guard to defend one on one, during transition, especially around the rim. Professional Basketball shooting guards failing to proficiently preform defensively as well as offensively represent a liability during opponent match ups that require a defensive stop, take away or tie up for a jump ball. Harden's defensive abilities remain less than adequate therefore his player rating should not move above thirty however should remain above fifty.

He's the type that loves to work together he has the best 3pointers in the game he's an MVP winner

James Harden is 221! Really? He should be top 30 dude.

52 Rudy Gay Rudy Gay Rudy Carlton Gay Jr. is an American professional basketball player for the Sacramento Kings of the National Basketball Association.

He would be a legend if he swallowed his pride and went to a contender like the pacers heat knicks celtics spurs - mountainhawk

Boo should barely crack top eighty

Rudy gay looks very good

This guy is very good but I think he shoul be number 60 instead of number 49

53 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

54 Amare Stodumire

He is beast. He is one of New Yorks best players. He averages good points per game. He is also a good slam dunker.

I would put him on this list if he ever did any thing great. What great thing has he done to even be mentioned.

He has good slam dunking skills. - paasadani

57 Jason Kidd

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.

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

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.

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

58 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.
