Majority of everyone has the exact same 10 but we all agree Jordan is # 1 which is rightfully so.

I think the top 4 of all time should be the top 4 on the Mt Rushmore.

Jordan cancels out Kobe because they're so much alike so that leaves us with Magic.

Than we gotta throw in Wilt & Russell because of the historic run they both had.

Nobody is winning 11 rings again and nobody is scoring 100 pts and averaging 50 ppg in a season again.That's why it's so hard to compare different eras but nobody can help who their competition was.

Just like Mayweather didn't have competition like Ali or Sugar ray that's not his fault.

Russell and Wilt both deserve top 4 or 5 recognition.

My favorites are Bob Lanier's and John Havlicek's. Lanier said Wilt once picked him up like a coffee cup an moved him over to get better position down low, and Lanier was close to 300 lbs.

Havllicek said that he tried wrapping up Wilt to stop him scoring and Wilt dunked anyway, with Hondo hanging on his arm, both feet off the ground.

A few changes from the OP's list. I'm not sure Duncan should be #10 but can't think of anyone that should replace him.


1. Jordan
2. Kareem
3. Lebron
4. Wilt
5. Magic
6. Larry Bird
7. Shaq
8. Kobe
9. Bill Russell
10. Duncan

Wow Oscar number 3 ? And Kareem number 6? Most points ever 6 MVP and 6 championships? I would think he has to be top 3 ever
