Wait a second. O'Neal in top 5 Abdul-Jabbar not in top 5? Abdul-Jabbar gets in for better acting alone. His scene in Airplane destroys Steel and Kazzam.

shaq's position is a total joke. are they fucking kidding me? is a rich man's derrick coleman in terms of effort. should have been a 40/20 or 35/18 guy for his career at his size.

I also don't know how Magic is ahead of Abdul-Jabbar when he couldn't win a title without Abdul-Jabbar. You could also make an argument against Jordan. Wilt averaged a triple-double one year didn't he.

For doing what, exactly?

Kidd should be in the forties, at best.

Is it a ranking of accomplishments or ability? By measures of individual ability/contribution (i.e., PER), LeBron's 2008-09 was better than anyone in NBA history not named Michael Jordan. I know it's not a ranking of top seasons, but if it's a ranking based at all on ability, LBJ should be top 10 at least.

Check it, Bob Pettit was 6'9 and 215 and dominated the league...in 1954! Playing against 8 teams of wimpy ass white dudes. His 20k points is inflated by playing in a rag tag startup league. He wouldnt be shit today or even in the 80's or 70's.

Lots of legends on that list but someone please make a real list. Todays game; players in their prime. Jordan would still be 1, then ??? Kobe, LBJ, Magic, Wilt? Dudes like George Mikan and Dolph Schayes wouldnt even play. Fuck it, I digress

Fuck it is right. Pettit also played in a time when much of modern basketball techniques/skills had yet to be invented. It's different down to the rules of game and equipment(he was playing on Chucks/PF Flyers, no?). Without Pettit and the like, there'd be no MJ, Kobe, or LeBron.

Get back to us when LeBron has led his team to a NBA title.

The guy averaged 35/9/7 in the playoffs. What more could he do? Will you give him personal credit if the Cavs get him some quality supporting players and he wins a title then? Or does he have to lead four lumps of shit to a title to get credit?
