Best Basketball Players of All Time


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Gilbert Arenas Gilbert Arenas

No chill Gil great basketball player crappy husband - mountainhawk

The one season one hit wonder.

Agent zero deserves to be a little higher rated than this!

The best little man in the NBA, soon to overcome A.I. and if he grew 5 inches would dominate Lebron. Calls his own shots!

82 Spud Webb

5"6 men calm on he should be the top 40 best dunker for a small guy whoever made. This they don't know basketball

Great tiny but dunks a lot

Spud Webb should be at the 20 because he is the shortest nba player to dunk

LeBron james

83 Toni Kuko─Ź

He is just the best!
He played at any position.

The magician. Won 3 Euroleague titles in a row wit Yugoplastika Split, than did the same with Bulls. Won many madals with national team.

I just enjoy watching him

Boom boom boom everybody say wayoh wayoh

84 Oscar Schmidt

The most underrated player all time, just because he didn't played in the nba. Almost 50k points in his career

Simply the "Holy Hand". There was never another player with his shooting accuracy. He's the best player that never played in the NBA, although the phoenix suns has tried to hire him for three times.

No other player in history has his numbers.

Simply the best shooter of all time!

85 Dennis Rodman Dennis Rodman

He is the best. Should be right under Jordan. When he steps on the court the game of basketball changes. He has his own style of playing basketball.

Rodman could change any game he played in by just out hustling and just being himself would always throw the other teams out of there game plans because of foul trouble and frustration. Rodman made a impact just like barkley did and you eather like them or you don't. Rodman by far he should be on the list.

The Worm was the best rebounder ever and not to mention his shut down defense

He should be in the top 10 - venomouskillingmachine

86 David Thompson

He is the best college basketball player who ever lived. He invented the alley-oop. The only reason this guy isn't in the top 5 is because he played for the ABA more than he played in the NBA, he is from the early seventies, and he was more of a college player than a pro player. Michael Jordan says that this guy was his idol. He could jump so high he tripped over some guys shoulder. In college it was said that he could touch the top of the backboard. People said that he could but a quarter on the the top of the backboard then change it out for a nickel and two dimes.

He was absolutely unstoppable in his first five to six years in the league. Very underrated as a defensive player and was very unselfish. David Thompson was as good as any of the top players in the history of basketball

If you never saw this guy dunk a ball then you've seen nothing. He is simply awesome. One of the highlight players of the 70's. The people who can lack to his level are a short list. Jabbar, Chamberlain, Barry, and West. - Undertaker15-0

He is the best player of all time please put him in at least the top 50 PLEASE!

87 Joakim Noah Joakim Noah Joakim Simon Noah is a professional basketball player for the Chicago Bulls of the National Basketball Association.

He is an amazing mid range shooter and a great hook shooter as well. The time he blocked Lebron was the best or when he stole the ball against Paul Pierce and dunked yeah. There is plenty more I could list but he's the man.

The defensive player of the year in the nab and collage.

2nd best player on Bulls behind derrick rose

The tornado

88 Klay Thompson Klay Thompson Klay Alexander Thompson is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association.

Good player he needs to branch off cause curry is the big time tree shooter there

"this present time Klay Thompson proved to the Basketball fan the new generation of the Basketball game and the transformation of the NBA.

What? Klay Thompson is like 20th currently. So he should be like 80th, like Anthony Davis.

The greatest shooter ever bro

95 Kristaps Porzingis

I think because he could really help the nikes on the wing

I think Kristaps Porzingis because he is young and he has a lot ahead of him.

96 Robert Horry

"Big Shot Bob" is not only known for his clutch shots but also his aggressive playing... not to mention he has 6 rings


97 Ivory Latta

The best girl basketball player from college. Got drafted to Detroit!

98 Esteban Batista
99 Earl Boykins

He is a symbol of motivation, specially for every small size basketball player and a symbol of the fact that you will earn that you want.

He was my granddad

Nobody got more heart than this guy. Simply the GOAT. He's faster than AI, shoots better than Kobe, and has more heart than Duncan. He's a beast.

100 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!
