The Top 10 Players in NBA History. Yep, "He"'s Already on Here.

 
   Hate LeBron James.
   In fact, I'll never forgive him for mocking Dirk Nowitzki's flu cough in the 2011 NBA Finals. But these days, in the wake of Miami's Finals' triumph over the Spurs, I can't deny how damn good of a basketball player he's become.
   Last week he accomplished being only the third player in NBA history to win MVPs of both regular season and The Finals in back-to-back seasons. The other two? Bill Russell and Michael Jordan. Yeah, wow.
   Facing elimination in Games 6 and 7 against San Antonio James produced two epic performances totaling 69 points, 23 rebounds and 14 assists.
   Like him or not, you can't deny that greatness.
   Stubborn as I am, I can no longer keep LeBron off my list of the NBA's greatest all-time players, an elite collection that doesn't include the winningest player (Bill Russell), most dominant physical specimen (Wilt Chamberlain) or 2nd all-time leading scorer (Karl Malone). I can only take solace that LeBron's 11-1 in playoff series as a member of the Heat.
   And all us Mavs' fans gleefully know who gave him the one defeat. Right?
   My Top 10 Players in NBA History ...

  1. Bill Russel never won MVP and Finals MVP in back-to-back seasons because Finals MVP was not awarded until '69, you ass.

  7. RW,

    With all dude respect, Allen Iverson, a volume shooter is on this list and Wilt Chamberlin is not? Iverson never won a championship, Chamberlin did. In fact, Malone didn't win one either. Both were transcendent players versus a volume shooter?

    Sincerely,

    1. There is a contingent who feel Wilt was the best to ever play. Head to head he destroyed Bill Russell. Still shaking my head about Iverson.

  10. this list is flawless minus the greatness of bill russell. 11 championships and changed the face of the game with defensive dominance. overall a good list. i would have replaced oscar robinson for russell. ps richie you are a great writer fair, factual, and always have great integrity. best of luck in the future brother.

  11. All in all good list, but I do disagree with a few. Isaiah Thomas over A.I. everyday. Magic is not #2 all-time, Shaq should be way higher, and Wilt does deserve to be on this list.

    10.)Tim Duncan
    9.) Oscar Robertson
    8.) Wilt Chamberlain
    7.) Shaq
    6.) Larry Bird
    5.) LeBron James
    4.) Magic
    3.) Kobe
    2.) Kareem
    1.) Michael Jordan

    Just my opinion

    How bout those Chi/Dal Blackhawks?!

    NHL gave us 6 of 6 competitive games in their Finals while the NBA provided an ugly 3 of 7...with an unwatchable reg season. Lock 'em out, throw away the key & go away with Stern!

    I'm a hooper & love college hoops, but NHL has converted me from NBA & it's sorry ref's.

  13. In 1965 Lew Alcindor finished his high school career with 2,067 points and 2,002 rebounds, both of which are New York City records. Kareem was the greatest high school basketball player of his time. NBA Live Mobile Guide
