  • Top 5 basketball players of all time

    The LeBron vs MJ debate has run rampant as of late. However, I have come around and decided that NEITHER of them are the GOAT. Here are my top 5:

    1) Kareem Abdul Jabbar
    2) LeBron James
    3) Michael Jordan
    4) Magic Johnson
    5) Larry Bird (healthy)

    No Chamberlain? No Russell?

    I don't know if I can come up with a top 5, it's very tough to compare across generations. I do know that James would probably be behind Chamberlain, Jabbar and Jordan on my list.

          I just think that LeBron is the better all round player. I think that people rag on LeBron because he is such a good player. People complain about him the same way they used to about Jordan back then. LeBron, just like Jordan, won't get his full respect until he retires.

                1. Brian Scalabrine
                2. Zaza Pachulia
                3. Kendrick Perkins
                4. Javale McGee
                5. Marcus Smart

                It's no fun being too tall. IMO. Now I'm only interested in glomming at cheltenham festival 2017. My wife told me, she'd love to go horseracing with me, but she can't.

                  I don't know who my Top 5 would be, but Jordan would be the GOAT. LeBron is a great player, but Jordan wrote the blueprint that Lebron is following. LeBron has even admitted that he's chasing Jordan, so how can LeBron have surpassed Jordan when he's still playing catch-up?
                  One of these teams is not like the others

                    The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.

                        How did Benoit Benjamin, Michael Olawakandi, Jerome James, or Tyler Hansbrough not make your list?

                          Can only go by players I've seen. In no particular order:

                          LeBron Jordan
                          Shaw
                          Duncan
                          Bird
