In any order you like....Kobe's somewhere in 6-10 range with Hakeem, Shaq, Duncan, Russell and Oscar. IMO of course....

i agree for the most part but i would take kareem off and replace him with russell, you cant argue with the rings. kareem was great and put up huge numbers over a 20 year career but russell was not just A winner he was THE winner, greatest champion in the history of the game.

I don't consider Russell a better oncourt player, than Kareem. Russell was a defensive anchor on a team that had a larger collection of talent than any other team in an 11 team league. They had no excuse not to win 11 rings. Which is not to trivialize Russell, he has his place in sports history. But If 'winning' is your criteria for selecting Russell over Kareem, than you'd have to apply that to every other player.

Wait..did you just say you agree? You and me agree? Is it raining cats and dogs...let me look outside.
