3 Dywane Wade

I'm not sure about 3 but it's debatable can't just say he doesn't belong as a 3 time champion Finals Mvp,11 time all star, 8 all nba first team selections, scoring title, all defense awards, Gold medals, etc can't just push his career to the side based on West being the logo but 1 title to show for it or Iverson who's close but no titles hurts his case... When a player like James leaves a team with players based around him and his style of play I can see the drop off but he's made the playoffs once the team was based around him and Bosh... It's debatable but people act like he shouldn't be in the conversation as 3rd best...

Are you crazy puting Kobe in second is crap Wade maybe hasn't conquered MJ yet but when he wins 4 more championships who will be talking now. Kobe is overrated. Wade is much more quick, strong, and athletic than both of them. If you look at them tree statistically you will realize who is the best all around how passes the best who blocks the best and who has the most potential to win games all of those are Wade who still hasca out 6 years left. KOBE IS DONE

Wade is not number 3 shooting guard of all time. How do you go from MJ to Kobe to Wade... You don't. Wade is not over Allen Iverson, Joe Dumars, Jerry West, Oscar Robertson, or Reggie Miller. Allen Iverson is the reason people wear sleeves, get tattoos, cornrows etc. If it wasn't for Allen Iverson do you think Wade would even be wearing a sleeve.Also Allen Iverson carried that 76ers team to a NBA finals by himself the only reason they lost the finals was because they faced Kobe and Shaq, but soon as Lebron left Miami the heat didn't even make the playoffs. Don't say he is better than Iverson because he has rings because whenever he got his rings look at who the hell was on his team Shaq, Lebron, Chris Bosh is Iverson had Lebron and Chris Bosh he would have got a couple rings to. Jerry West is the damn logo and your telling me Wade with his bad knees who can't even shoot is above him? No Wade is a great player and he does deserve to be on this list but not at number 3

Definitely the third greatest of All-time! The greatest Miami Heat player ever, and one of the most clutch players to play the game! Not to forget the best shot blocking guard of all time after MJ. A.I. was good but no team wanted him because of his attitude and D Wade had 3 NBA Championships! And don't bring up that he had Lebron crap, MJ and Pippin and Rodman, Steve Kerr, John paxon, and etc, Kobe had Shaq, Pua Gasol, Derek fisher, Lamar Odom, Ron artist etc. No one wanted to play with iverson and that is his fault!

4 Allen Iverson Allen Iverson Allen Ezail Iverson is an American retired professional basketball player who played for 14 seasons in the National Basketball Association.

Iverson is better than Dwayne wade.

A.I. is just ill. How is he not even in the 5?! HE J'ED Jordan! And by far the best SG to never win a championship... Yet...

He Should be 1st because he crossed up Michael Jordan as a rookie and if you crossed one of the best that makes you one of the best to

5 Clyde Drexler Clyde Drexler

Clyde drexler was great on defense and offense. Jordan wouldn't have won any championships without pippen and rodman.

6 Jerry West Jerry West Jerry Alan West is an American retired basketball player who played his entire professional career for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association.

How is Jerry West (aka THE LOGO) 6th on this list? that's just worst he should be TOP 3 if not TOP 2...just wish the younger generations would look up old school players - Henz0827

7 Reggie Miller

He was so good at threes my hero

8 Ray Allen Ray Allen Walter Ray Allen, Jr. is a former American professional basketball player who is currently a free agent.

The best pure shooter of all time. He surpassed the record of Reggie Miller.
He is surely one the greatest shooting guard of all time

Ray Allen is just a knockdown shooter. No way is he better than Reggie "knick killer" miller or tmac

9 Tracy McGrady

Tracy McGrady should be number 2. But all those injuries are what kept him from being the best player of all time. If he would have stayed healthy he would be the best player of all time. No one can touch t-mac. Have you ever seen 15 points in less then a minute against one of the best teams ever the San Antonio Spurs. Insane. Long live the T-Mac Greatest NBA Player of all time yeah I said it

Kobe said he was the hardest for him to guard so how isn't he in the top ten

Should be top 10, he was arguably better than kobe in the 2000's before injuries detailed his career. Still a 2x scoring champ

Bruh do they really got Ray Allen and Reggie Miller ranked higher? Neither of those was the player that Tracy was. Tracy was an unstoppable machine. 2003 T-Mac was the best player in the NBA, Phil Jackson wanted to trade Kobe for him.

11 Pete Maravich

Pistol Pete was a basketball wizard. The greatest scorer in college basketball history. He knew what was going to happen on the court before anyone else. One of the smartest players of all time.

13 Vince Carter

Statistically at the end of his career vince carter will most likely eclipse 25,000 pts 6,000 pts 5,000 reb 2,000 3P made.. Along with 8 all stars and being the face of 2 franchises (as well as being 2nd all time scorer by total points with nets and raptors) 1st if you want to count by ppg or PER, he's clearly in the top 10 list.

Carter led NJ to the Finals...he led TOR with no help he helped Howard get to his 1st Finals he made the clutch shot against SA

14 George Gervin George Gervin George Gervin, nicknamed "The Iceman," is an American retired professional basketball player who played in both the American Basketball Association and National Basketball Association for the Virginia Squires, San Antonio Spurs, and Chicago Bulls.

Most underrated guard in history. His scoring leader contest with David Thompson (another underrated) was classic.

Awesome player on a awesome team

16 Manu Ginobili

One of my favorites and a good all around player

Manu should be in top 3! Reasons: 2004 Olympics. (Manu vs Prime Iverson, Prime Duncan, Upcomming Superstars = Wade, James & Anthony + NBA All-Stars) and some NBA championships

I think Ginobli is a top play maker. Make almost impossible paths to the basket.

17 Joe Dumars
18 Hall Greer

Earl the Pearl Monroe and Walt Frazier should have been on this list and Frazier should have also been on the list for point guards, he was such a complete guard.

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

James harden is a monster and he can make any team better with his play making ability
