My Top 50 NBA Players of All Time Part 1 (50-46)

Bronson
Hello everyone. If you do not know who I am, my name is Bronson Crawford. I am fairly new to TopTens but this is an amazing website, and I am already making a few new friends. My favorite sport is basketball, and here are my Top 50 Greatest NBA Players of All Time. After this list, I will be creating a Top 100 (or I might cut it to 50) Greatest Songs of All Time (because I don't particularly agree with Billboard) So, here is the first part of my list. I will introduce the player and then give a summary about why I think they belong in the position that I put them in.

#50. Chris Paul PG New Orleans Hornets, Los Angeles Clippers
Magic Johnson may have been the most dominant point guard of his time, and John Stockton is the greatest assister of all time, but one PG in today's game that has qualities of both Johnson and Stockton is CP3. Chris Paul is, I think, the greatest assister of the 2000's. He has a great jump shot as well. One thing that I would like to point out about him is that he is not a shoot-first point guard. While Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, and Stephen Curry would drive in or shoot within a few seconds, Chris Paul will search the court for the best option possible first, whether it be passing it inside, driving, or give and go. CP3 is truly one of a kind point guard, and one of my favorite players to watch in the NBA.

#49. Allen Iverson SG/PG Philadelphia 76er's, Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons, Memphis Grizzlies
Albeit a little cocky sometimes, Allen Iverson is one of the greatest guards I have ever seen. The ankle breaker he pulled on Michael Jordan was dazzling. Iverson may be the greatest ankle breaker of all time. However, that is not the only reason he is on this list. Iverson was quick and aggressive on offense and was known for hounding the defense. Whenever Iverson starts playing around with the ball at the top of the key, the defender has no clue what he is going to do. Is he going to shoot from where he is, drive it in, or pass it off. Because of the moves Allen Iverson has, I believe he deserves to be on this list.

#48. Chris Webber PF/C Golden State Warriors, Washington Bullets/Wizards, Sacramento Kings, Philadelphia 76er's
This man would have had a championship ring, had the refs not given the series to the Lakers. Chris Webber was an amazing player and one of the most dominant in his position at that time. True, he was probably more famous for the Fab Five at the University of Michigan, but all in all, he was a great player. Every team that Chris Webber was on, he led them to the playoffs for the first time in a long time. One last thing, this man deserves a championship ring for his amazing basketball play.

#47. Chris Mullin SF/SG Golden State Warriors, Indiana Pacers
I honestly haven't watched him a lot but I will say that he is a great player. In college, he led the lowly St. John's team to some good yeas in the NCAA tournament. He did the same to the Golden State Warriors. He is easily the greatest Warrior of all time (unless Curry comes up and passes him). Mullin played a big part on the Dream Team as well. There is no way Chris Mullin is not on this list. He is one of the greatest at his position.

#46. Tracy McGrady SG/SF Toronto Raptors, Orlando Magic, Houston Rockets, Detroit Pistons, Atlanta Hawks, San Antonio Spurs
T-Mac is a two-time scoring champion and is one of, if not, the only player in history to score 13 points in 35 seconds. This guy can do everything, from hounding the defender to scoring 20-30 points a game. I truly admire this man. He can drain 3-pointers, dribble fairly well, and was a pretty good dunker. Tracy McGrady deserves to be on this list for all of the things he did. I think that T-Mac is one of the greatest scorers of all time. If a defender gives him too much room, T-Mac will just drain a jumper from where he is. If you guard him too closely, he will leave you in the dust, and end his drive with a spectacular dunk. Tracy McGrady is amazing.

Well, that's all for the first part of my list. Please let me know if you agree or not. Here is a hint for one of the players on the next part of my list. It's a bird! It's a plane! It's . . .
