    Kareem should be above Oscar and Shaq. I think he gets downgraded in peoples minds because he played so long and he gets remembered for the bald golem he was at the end. He was an absolute force in his prime and was a perhaps the 2nd most dominant winner from high school to the pros after Bill Russell.

    I question Iverson, especially after seeing how he contributed to the Pistons' implosion this year.

    Iverson played a brand of ball that made himself look spectacular, but did not make his teammates better.

    ...there are at least five centers better than Moses.


    In my list above, he's the 6th center listed, so we're not really in disagreement. He took a very mediocre Houston team to the finals in '81 and was the best player on that '83 Sixers team that was one of the best teams of my of all time IMO. He was a beast on the boards.

    agreed, and I lol'd a bit at bald golem. NBA has got too many golems bald or otherwise clunking around not earning their keep
