Here are Nos. 1-10. #NBArank: 1-10 10. • | PF | • Last year's rank: 14 • 2017-18 projected RPM: 8.86 Stats & Info: Green would be the highest-ranked player on 23 teams but is third on his own squad. Such is life on the Golden State Warriors. A tone-setter of the highest order on the defensive end, Green ranked second in the NBA in deflections last season as the Warriors finished first as a team.
When Green played the 5, opponents averaged just 0.91 points per play and shot 42 percent from the field. 9. • | SF | • Last year's rank: 19 • 2017-18 projected RPM: 3.68 Stats & Info: Antetokounmpo became the youngest player in NBA history to lead his team in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks last season.
We've literally never seen anyone quite like him, as Antetokounmpo's combination of per possession points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks is unprecedented among NBA players. Now just imagine what he'll be able to do once he adds an outside shot. 8. • | SG | • Last year's rank: 8 • 2017-18 projected RPM: 5.17 Stats & Info: Harden scored or assisted on 4,538 points last season, exactly one point shy of Tiny Archibald's NBA record set in 1972-73. With Chris Paul in town, Harden figures to spend more time off the ball which could spell trouble for opposing teams.
Harden ranked in the 91st percentile in points per play on spot-ups last season. 7. • | PG | • Last year's rank: 7 • 2017-18 projected RPM: 8.15 Stats & Info: At the league's most loaded position, Paul once again led all point guards in real plus-minus in 2016-17 while finishing second league-wide behind only LeBron James.
How Paul and James Harden jibe on the offensive end will be under the microscope all season, but it's worth noting that Paul is the only point guard who's a defensive upgrade over Patrick Beverley, who finished second among point guards in defensive RPM.
The gap between Paul and Beverley is the same as the gap between Beverley and the 20th-ranked defensive point guard. 6. • | PF | • Last year's rank: 6 • 2017-18 projected RPM: 4.9 Stats & Info: Davis just finished his fifth season and was named first-team All-NBA for the second time.
He's the 37th player in NBA history with multiple first-team All-NBA selections within his first five seasons but the only one not to have won a single playoff game over those first five seasons. 5. • | PG | • Last year's rank: 5 • 2017-18 projected RPM: 6.3 Stats & Info: After setting an NBA record with a usage percentage of 41.7 in the 2016-17 regular season, Westbrook upped the ante in the postseason with a usage percentage of 45.8 in OKC's first-round loss to Houston, easily the highest ever in a single postseason.
Just how absurd was the load he carried? Westbrook's usage percentage against the Rockets was larger than Michael Jordan's against the Monstars in "Space Jam," according to a 2011 study by the Harvard Sports Analysis Collective. 4. • | PG | • Last year's rank: 2 • 2017-18 projected RPM: 7.53 Stats & Info: It's a testament to Curry that in a supposed "down" year, he still finished sixth in MVP voting.
When he's cooking, the Warriors are almost unstoppable; they went 25-2 last season in games in which Curry scored at least 30 points (includes regular season and playoffs). 3. • | SF | • Last year's rank: 4 • 2017-18 projected RPM: 8.93 Stats & Info: Leonard was named first-team All-Defense for the third straight season and did it while averaging more than 25 points per game. Only three players -- Michael Jordan, LeBron James and Kobe Bryant -- have averaged 25 PPG and been named first-team All-Defense at a younger age than Leonard, who was 25 last season.
2. • | SF | • Last year's rank: 3 • 2017-18 projected RPM: 6.17 Stats & Info: After winning his first Finals MVP, Durant enters with 4-1 odds to win the 2017-18 league MVP award, tied with Russell Westbrook for the best odds of any player. It could also be the year Durant gets recognized as an elite defender, as he has yet to make an All-Defense team. It was Durant -- not Draymond Green -- who led all Warriors players in FG percentage allowed as a primary defender last season.
1. • | SF | • Last year's rank: 1 • 2017-18 projected RPM: 9.19 Stats & Info: The eye test and metrics agree: LeBron James is still King. He's riding a streak of 12 consecutive top-five finishes in MVP voting, tied for the longest streak of its kind in league history.
He could become the first player ever to win MVP in his 15th season or later. James has finished in the top spot in each of the seven seasons ESPN.com has unveiled the annual preseason player rankings. Analysis provided by ESPN Stats & Info's Micah Adams. • • • • •

1 Michael Jordan Michael Jeffrey Jordan, also known by his initials, MJ, is an American retired professional basketball player. This is a no brainer, most clutch player ever. Kobe is a huge douche but a great player, number 2 fits. Lebron has the ability and should be the goat but he is a head case sometimes.
One through seven are pretty much about right though. Hakeem should be way higher. Steve Nash and Isiah Thomas are not on the list? Both better than Stockton or Iverson when it comes to little guys.
Lastly Vince Carter? Great dunker, maybe best dunker, greatest PLAYER? Probably not even in top 100 ever. Won 6 championships, would have won more if he hadn't retired for brief moments during his career.
He also had 6 Finals appearances and never lost, which proves he could go off when it mattered most. He won 5 MVPs, would have won more except the NBA was tired of him having all that success.
He was on some stacked teams, but they were only stacked because Jordan made all his teammates good. He is the greatest player at being clutch, he is the greatest scorer of all time, he is a top 10 dunker of all time, and he is the 4th best defender of all time, and no, Lebron is not even a top 10 defender. The only thing Jordan really lacked was 3 point shooting, but he didn't really need to shoot 3s because he could just splash mid-range jumpers about 70% of the time.
Michael Jordan is the GOAT. Easily the best player of all time. Six NBA championships and five time MVP. So graceful on the court. He truly is the BEST NBA player ever. Great choice... - AlphaSports504 2 Magic Johnson Earvin "Magic" Johnson Jr. is a retired American professional basketball player who played point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association for 13 seasons.
Magic was an incredible competitor who elevated the games of his teammates. Basketball is a TEAM game, despite ESPN's obsession with offensive statistics, dunks and 3 point shots. Magic could play every position, even playing center in the 1980 Finals. I am a long time Celtic fan. But I have to place Magic as the second best player to have ever played.
- venusman MAGIC JOHNSON IS A GREAT HALL OF FAMER HE IS THE BEST TEAM PLAYER IN THE NBA EVER HE HAS HAD THE MOST ASSISTS EVER AND BROKE THE RECORD FOR THE MOST ASSISTS IN AN ALL STAR GAME WITH 24 ASSISTS Best play creator ever.
Best point guard ever. After Kareem left he still won it didn't matter. The best I have ever seen - nobody impacted the game like him. Jordan is a close 2nd. 3 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is an American retired professional basketball player who played 20 seasons in the National Basketball Association for the Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Lakers.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is arguably the greatest NBA player of all time. He was drafted to the Milwaukee Bucks, a 27 win team, and in only his second season, he won the MVP and the Bucks won 66 games and the NBA Finals. He's a six time MVP, six time NBA Champion, the all-time leader in points, the all-time leader in all-star appearances, one of the greatest passing big men, one of the greatest interior defenders, and the master of the sky hook.
- rapaddict97 KAREEM ABDUL JABBAR HAS A LOT OF CAREER HIGHLIGHTS 19X NBA ALL STAR HAS THE HIGHEST AMOUNT OF POINTS IN AN NBA CAREER WON THE MOST MVP AWARDS AND HAS HAD QUITE A LOT OF RINGS THAT HE HAS Kareem is number one better than Jordan has the most points in the nba the skyhook was unstoppable most mvp 6 time nba champion with the bucks and lakers kareem is better than Jordan people are just Jordan bandwagon THE GOAT HANDS DOWN NO QUESTIONS ASKED �"JaguarBeast 4 LeBron James LeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association.
LeBron has played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat, and the Lakers. Sick of haters always using LeBron's lack of rings against him, especially when you look at his playoff record he generally played very well, better than some jumped up stars with more rings, that had better support to get those rings anyway or they had easier opposition!
No way should Kobe be above LeBron! What goes against him for me is twice leaving his home team, though having said that at least he played for his home state at all, no question he'd have had at least twice as many NBA wins if he spent most of his career under strong teams and changing ship when needed...
He has it all bulky yet fast and skilled on the court, team oriented mind unlike one ball hogger on this list.. Broken tons of NBA records and will continue to do so, while I don't condone his team switching he did give so many years to an inferior franchise and it must have been utterly frustrating all those prime years and only 1 ring to show for it. If he had been an inferior player like Dwight Howard or ...
3x Most Valuable Player, 8x All-Star, 6x All-NBA first team, 2x All-NBA second team, 4x All-Defensive first team, one time champion, Finals MVP 27.6 PPG, 7.3 RPG, 6.9 APG, 1.9 SPG,.8 BPG.
You tell me that he is not a top 5 of all time he is the best All-Round NBA player ever + 19000 points, 5000 rebounds, 5000 assists, 1250 steals, 800 blocks, 50% FG shooting number one baby LeBron is the best player in NBA history.
He has to carry his team. After he left Cleveland, they were absolute crap again. Ever since he's came back, he's brought them to the finals every year.
Better than MJ should be #1 5 Larry Bird Larry Joe Bird is an American retired professional basketball player who played for the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association. Bird is a 3x champ, 1x ROTY, 1x Finals MVP, 3x 3PT Contest winner, all with the Boston Celtics. (1979-1992) LARRY BIRD IS AN NBA HALL OF FAMER HE HAS HAD WON 3 MVP'S IN A ROW 3 CHAMPIONSHIPS AND HAS HAD PROBABLY THE GREATEST RIVALRY IN THE NBA EVER WITH MAGIC JOHNSON 3 time NBA champion and 3 time MVP.
Such an amazing player. Could be THE BEST shooter of all time. One of my favorite players of all time. Larry Legend was badass in every way. You couldn't intimidate him one bit. He didn't need athleticism to compete, he just knew how to pick his spots on offense, where to pass, and how to defend and rebound at a high rate.
The best shooter 6 Kobe Bryant Kobe Bean Bryant is an American retired professional basketball player. He played his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association. Kobe Bryant has won 5 NBA championships with the Lakers and is the all-time leading scorer in Lakers franchise history. Kobe Bryant the one of those players, who showed a really interesting game, not just the number of points scored, rebounds and assists, he showed incredible skill of the game, very difficult scored, thought out and non-standard throws.
Kobe is good in all aspects on the basketball court, unlike those who can score only open three-pointers, or stand under the ring and wait for the pass, or other easy shots. He was the team leader, and he really deserved this title. He always laid out 100% and more, and he was the locomotive of his team. Kobe us undoubtedly a very athletic player with phenomenal offensive talent. However, he was never known as a TEAM player. He did not make his teammates better.
He was quite fortunate to have Shaq and Gasol as teammates in their primes. Otherwise, he would have won zero rings. Despite his shortcomings, he has to be placed in the top 10 best to ever have played. I would place him in the 8 - 10 range. - venusman He plays with so much toughness and has an intense mentality. He is so clutch and is very reliable and he can score the basketball so well definitely better than lebron.
Lebron is great but I feel kobe is more skillful and I really think he deserves to be in this spot in this list because of everything he did for LA and he has inspired many to play basketball with his great skill and how he can score from anywhere Kobe's accomplishments & numbers are not very far off Jordan's.. Now let's consider that he played near half his career as a 2nd fiddle to Shaq..
That alone beside the achillies injury & the fact he came into the league as an experiment & had to wait for playing time & to become a focal point in the offense hurts his stats.. But straight up by the eye test Kobe was as good as it gets.. Complete package mentally, physically, both ends of the floor.. And of course his competitive drive & killer instinct is what really puts him over the top of everyone else on this list.. 7 Wilt Chamberlain Wilton Norman "Wilt" Chamberlain was an American basketball player .
He was born on August 21, 1936 in Philadelphia and died on October 12, 1999 in Los Angeles due to heart failure . ....
People say Jordan's the best, but I'm leaning towards this guy. People continuously try to discredit his achievements by talking about how they were in the 50's. It doesn't matter if it was in the 50's and 60's, he still would've had to put the ball in the basket 50 times to score 100, he would've had to put the ball in the basket 25.2 times every game to average 50.4, and he would've had to have played every second of every game including overtime to average whatever the ridiculous stat is that he got with his minutes.
People love to talk about Jordan's free throw line dunk, but what they don't know is that instead of shooting free throws, Wilt would just jump and dunk the ball from the free throw line. That's why the rule exists. Wilt was also very strong, being able to deadlift about 500 pounds if my memory serves me correct.
Nobody is as athletic as Wilt either. People from his era estimate that he had about a 48"-58" vertical. This guy was an absolute freak of nature. - hiphopgod In the past 30 years, there have been three players to put have a game in which they scored 30 points and brought in 30 rebounds.
Wilt accomplished this feat over 100 times. He may not have won as much as Bill Russell, and he may have just been a tall guy at a time when the NBA was full of shorties. But Wilt revolutionized the game. He is the reason why basketball has become a game of giants. If Wilt never played, the sport of basketball would be a very different game.
He is indisputably the most dominant player to ever play the game. For all of the reasons listed above, Wilt the stilt is the greatest basketball player ever.
What the hell are you talking about he isn't eleventh he is with out a doubt the best NBA player that ever lived he scored nearly as much as Michael Jordan and he played less game I mean the guy scored 100 points and scored 4,000 points in just one season THE BIG DIPPER DESERVES TO BE NUMBER 1 he is the greatest of all time HE IS BETTER THAN YOU'LL EVER BE he was the best Lakers player ever and you put Kobe Bryant in front of Wilt Chamberlain are you senile I mean you can't do that Excuse m?
Number 5? - dankchu 8 Bill Russell William Felton "Bill" Russell is an American retired professional basketball player. Russell played center for the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association from 1956 to 1969. Bill was a pioneer for the game. He really showed that a player can dominate just on defense and team oriented play. He never had an overpowering physique, yet he was the only guy back in his day who could stop Wilt from scoring.
Not only a role model for black people, but to everyone. In the era of ESPN where there exists an obsession of OFFENSE, dunks and 3 point shots, fans under 40 don't appreciate Bill Russell.
In addition to Russell's 11 rings, he also won 2 NCCA championships at unheralded University of San Francisco. Russell was a fabulous athlete with an unmatched intensity for the game. He understood that basketball is a TEAM game and he made his teammates better players. Bill Russell was the best basketball player ever to put on a uniform. - venusman 11 titles in 13 years. Totally changed the nature of the game. To rank him below Chamberlain is hilarious. I saw them play against each other.
One had the heart of a champion (it wasn't Wilt). Ranking him below Kobe Bryant is also completely ridiculous. The best. - footballtower2014 9 Shaquille O'Neal Shaquille Rashaun O'Neal, nicknamed Shaq, is a retired American professional basketball player who is currently an analyst on the television program Inside the NBA.
He is known for his fun, friendly personality, and is one of the most beloved athletes of all time. SHAQ IS THE MOST INTERESTING PLAYER IN THE NBA EVER HE HAS BEEN TO MORE PLAY OFFS THEN YOU CAN COUNT HE WON 4 OF THEM HE WENT WITH STEVE NASH, LEBRON JAMES AND DWYANE WADE AND HAS THE BEST PERSONALITY IN THE NBA EVER AND IS 7 FOOT 1 INCH Shaq is a lot like Wilt Chamberlain, except that Shaq is shorter, slower, weaker, fatter, and had way less stamina and substantially less vertical.
ShaQ can dunk. Who in the world can dunk like that like braking glasses. The NBA's backboards are too good to break but for him to break the backboard like that is to seriuos.He is kind of slow his shooting isn't all that great but he is still a great Basketball player.
Y'all need icy hot - rankist 10 Tim Duncan Timothy Theodore "Tim" Duncan is an American professional basketball player who has played his entire career for the San Antonio Spurs of the National Basketball Association. Four time NBA champion and two time MVP. The Greatest power forward of all time is an amazing player to the game of basketball. I like the way he plays the game. Great leader and teammate Tim Duncan is the greatest power forward ever.
That is a fact. He has been consistent since 1997! That is 16 years. It's a crime to not put this guy in the top 10. The best PF of all time - EpicJake The Contenders 11 Hakeem Olajuwon Hakeem Abdul Olajuwon, formerly known as Akeem Olajuwon, is a Nigerian-American retired professional basketball player.
Hakeem destroyed the likes of Shaq, Ewing, Robinson. On the low block, he never had powerful strength but he resembled footwork of a ballet dancer, combined with a silky smooth jumper and no one had an answer for him.
Greatest center of all time why the hell is he not in front of larry bird or just scalbrine he made the dream shuffle he got the most blocks than anybody ever in NBA history and he was way wore finesse Hakeem is just an absolute baller. He is an all rounder and a nice guy. The best 12 Oscar Robertson Oscar Palmer Robertson, nicknamed "The Big O", is an American retired National Basketball Association player who played for the Cincinnati Royals and Milwaukee Bucks.
Would kill any player today Simple he averaged a triple double for an entire year. Averaged a triple double Kids today will never know about the Big O. It is a shame that there werent enough video cameras back then. Couldve captured highlight after highlight. 13 Julius Erving Julius Winfield Erving II, commonly known by the nickname Dr. J, is an American retired basketball player who helped popularize a modern style of play that emphasizes leaping and playing above the rim.
He is way better then kevin durant One of the most underrated players of all time. Made the dunk interesting Come on he made nba and aba exciting and he has a better record than Lebron 3-0 vs 3-8 14 Jerry West Jerry Alan West is an American retired basketball player who played his entire professional career for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association.
Jerry West would eat most of the players here alive. He was not only a great shooter but he was also an exceptional defender. He was unmatched in clutch time and set the standard for every guard after him. - bishop.moore07 I have no words to say. The Logo at number 33? Are you serious? - bishop.moore07 He should be higher than Curry. I mean, he is on the NBA logo!
- EpicJake HE IS THE NBA LOGO. good spot though 15 Kevin Durant Kevin Wayne Durant is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association.
He was MVP of the 2017 NBA Finals. Well he's going on the Warriors so this will be good MVP, finials MVP, title holder, do I need to say more He doesn't deserve to ten top boi 16 Allen Iverson Allen Ezail Iverson is an American retired professional basketball player who played for 14 seasons in the National Basketball Association. His moves were slick and, despite his ego getting in the way, he could score and dump off some great passes. Greatly underrated, possibly because of his off-court troubles.
Allen Iverson is pound for pound one of the greatest, if not the greatest, player of all time. He played with unmatched heart and passion every night of his NBA career.
The Answer was lightning quick and extremely fast, could finish at the rim amazingly well, could make incredible passes even though it's not his forte. Him and LeBron are the only ones who took a weak team to the finals despite, with better teammates there's not a doubt in my mind that he could've won a few rings during his career.
With a career average of 26.7 ppg, he dominated the late 90s and early 00s. I'll agree that he was the best scorer but come on top 10 player of all time? - im1azy Better than Darius and he can cross shoot and pass he is a good passer he ecspecially deserves to be in the NBA and has good defense.
He can dominate the basket whenever he can score shoot and steal the ball. He is better than Jordan because he crossed him in his rookie 17 John Stockton John Houston Stockton is an American retired professional basketball player.
He spent his entire professional playing career as a point guard for the Utah Jazz of the National Basketball Association, from 1984 to 2003. Stockton is regarded as one of the best point guards of all time, holding the NBA .... He should be higher than Kevin Durant John is underrated I mean he leads the NBA in assists and steal s go John Stockton Definition of point guard Top 10 player - ShugaRoy 18 Charles Barkley Charles Wade Barkley is an American retired professional basketball player and current analyst on the television program Inside the NBA.
I don't really like Charles Barkley because he was Karl Malone's rival. So Draymond Green over Sir Charles Barkley on this list? Yeah ok. Shows how incredibly stupid voters are. Barkley a close 2nd to Duncan in best Power Forward of all time with Karl Malone jut behind him.
Nowitzki is like 6th best Power Forward of all time at best. 19 Chris Paul Christopher Emmanuel Paul is an American professional basketball player for the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association. Most overrated if you ask me. He makes the all star roster every year because of favoritism from the coaches and fans. Never been champ, never been MVP, defensive player, nothing Really he probably 60 in the ranking of all time Terrible 23 Dwyane Wade Dwyane Tyrone Wade Jr.
is an American professional basketball player for the Miami Heat of the National Basketball Association. How is chris bosh higher than dwyane!? I mean I like chris bosh but dwayne wade was way more legendary He had shaq and lebron he did not do it himself How is dwyane wade this far down?!?!?!? This is dumb. D Wade is top 15. - 9713524179 24 Elgin Baylor Waiting for Kyrie Irving I have never in my life seem a better player than Elgin Baylor. At, 6ft 5ins, he was the second leading scorer in the NBA During the Big Wilt era and the third leading rebound leader during Bill Russell and Big Wilt era.
The most important Attribute he had was his excitement and hang time. He did not have a good supporting cast but he performed at the Highest level.
He is the best of the best! 26 Clyde Drexler Clyde Austin "The Glide" Drexler is an American retired professional basketball player. During his career, he was a ten-time All-Star, and named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History. Clyde should be way higher Clyde is way better than Oscar Robertson Clyde Drexler is way better than Kevin Durant. Clyde is a hall of famer and kd isn't 27 Derrick Rose Derrick Martell Rose is an American professional basketball player for the Minnesota Timberwolves of the National Basketball Association.
Derrick Rose lost a lot when he got injured and is not his MVP self anymore. He has been the best but since his injuries have put him down he is not as good as he was but is still good Too bad, his injury ruined his career. - joshsanz He has a massive habit of getting the basket 28 Jermaine O'Neal Jermaine Lee O'Neal is an American former professional basketball player.
The 6 ft 11 in, 255 lb forward-center had a successful high school career and declared his eligibility for the 1996 NBA draft straight out of high school.
A good Damn center can dunk pass the ball and shoot. A "6'11" shooter so good.. He can attack the basket whenever or so what some people say he suck but they are wrong he is one of the best Basketball players.
30 Steve Nash Stephen John Nash, is a Canadian retired professional basketball player who played in the National Basketball Association. Two time straight MVP, played in 8 all star game, and rated one of the best point guard of all time? How can nobody add Steve Nash in this list? Lebron and Durant are still playing and there on the top ten list?!?! A true point guard defines Steve Nash - joshsanz 32 Russell Westbrook Russell Westbrook Jr.
is an American professional basketball player for the Oklahoma City Thunder of the National Basketball Association. Should be #15. Scariest player since Oscar Robertson. Averaging triple doubles and leading a team to the playoffs by himself. Can pass, shoot, block, steal, rebound, and leads almost all of them. Insane He should be way higher than this. Please vote for him he should way higher Why is Kyle Lowry and Demar ahead of this man! 33 Tracy McGrady Tracy Lamar McGrady Jr. is an American retired professional basketball player who is best known for his career in the National Basketball Association, where he played as both a shooting guard and small forward.
Just watch a highlight reel or game film, this guy in my opinion was the greatest talent to ever play the game. lightning fast jump shot that was just pure from anywhere. The athleticism of Lebron and frame to match, combined with the ball skills, body control, and touch of Kobe's game.
Last but not least he was an absolute lockdown defender when he felt like it, which was consequently whenever he was playing any other top players. Kobe claims that T-Mac was his toughest opponent he ever played against and he's played against Bron and Jordan and Durant. Sadly he was one of those cases where injuries took what could have been the greatest player ever. He had seven phenomenal years before being plagued with injuries but still managed to score 18,381 points.
Before you try and tear this post apart go back and watch some game film of him being the most dominant player in the NBA. THIS MAN WAS A RIVAL TO KOBE BRYANT THE BLACK MAMBA BEAR with me t mac put up numbers that should put him at MVP level but we just were given one of the most explosive scorers in NBA history.He gave us one of the most historic moments in league history by scoring 13 points in 33 SECONDS against the 2005 NBA champions the San Antonio spurs.
Tmac needs to be in the top 20 T-Mac is GOAT SG. 34 Karl Malone Karl Anthony Malone is an American retired professional basketball player. Nicknamed "The MailMan", Malone played the power forward position and spent his first 18 seasons in the National Basketball Association with the Utah Jazz and formed a formidable duo with his teammate John Stockton.
Karl Malone is a top-25 NBA player of all time, it is a shame that this list puts him at 66. He is second on the all-time career points list only second to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He and John Stockton took the Utah Jazz to the NBA Finals twice ('97 and '98).
The only reason he does not have a ring is because he played in the same era as M.J., and ultimately lost both Finals series in six games. Absolute legend, in my opinion Karl Malone should be around number 20. The Mailman definitely needs to be higher on this list.
What other player in the history of the game was an undersized power forward that could equally score and rebound every game as consistent as Malone did it. Ignorant fans and bandwagoner morons are to blame for this in their mind players who don't win rings are not great.
Gtfo 40 Moses Malone Moses Eugene Malone was an American basketball player who played in both the American Basketball Association and the National Basketball Association from 1974 through 1995. The center was named the NBA Most Valuable Player three times and was a 12-time NBA All-Star and an eight-time All-NBA selection.
.... 42 Deron Williams Deron Michael Williams is an American professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association. He was the man at cross overs he should be higher He is no better than Raymond Felton Why tf is he of all people on this list? He not even relevant in the league anymore 43 Brian Scalabrini The greatest to ever pick up a basketball.
I mean where do you start? His legacy is so great that the nba censored most of it. Averaging a triple triple for the nba finals against a very mediocre shooting guard in love Bryant. He is the goat and that is the only way to put it Well. I can see now that earth is literally stupid. From making Donald trump into a republican candidate to Scalabrine being at this level. Nice to see that we are being smarter nowadays... Easily the coldest player of all time How dare you spell the name of our lord and saviour, the one and almighty two time rookie of the year winner, BRIAN SCALABRINE wrong?
whats wrong with yall 48 Paul Pierce Paul Anthony Pierce is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association.
How is this a list w/out Pierce? He was forced to play every last position in his career and excelled at all of them except center. Pierce was one of the few players in the game today who cared about his team and winning.
Paul Pierce was also a legendary clutch performer and an inspiring team leader. He transformed the Celts from a team into a family. Because of Pierce, very few teams had a stronger bond than the Celts.
I know Pierce isn't going to show up in the top 10 but he more than earned his spot on a list like this. Please put Paul Anthony Pierce on this list. It would be great to see that not everybody thinks that basketball is all about scoring points (I'm talking to you, Kobe, Melo, Durant, etc.) NBA Champion (2008) NBA Finals MVP (2008) 10 NBA All-Star (2002-2006),(2008-2012) All NBA Second Team (2009) 3 All-NBA Third Team (2002,2003,2008) NBA All-Rookie First Team (1999) NBA Three Point shootout champion (2010) 49 Draymond Green Draymond Jamal Green Sr.

This guy is better than Steph He sucks 50 Joel Anthony Joel Anthony is the greatest of all time. This list is ridiculous. Am I the only one who have seen his amazing talent?
His monster face will scare the hell out of you before you can drive the ball to the basket. The scariest player ever in NBA. He should be nailed to number 1. Because Joel Anthony is the real king. He is far better than Michael Jordan or any other player with a ring. He should even be the MVP in the miami versus dallas finals, but Lebron is too jealous because Joel just played from the bench. But he's underrated that's why not everyone appreciates him. - joshsanz So Joel Anthony is better than Moses Malone?
I don't think so. So is he deformed? I've never heard of this dude The goat better than scalabrine
