No all time list is easy. However let's give this a shot.
My methodology is as follows we will balance statistical contribution, accolades and overall game impact.
1. Wilt Chamberlin
13 time all star
11 Time Rebounding champion
All time leader in career win shares
Only player to average 50 points for a season.
Only player to score 100 points in a game.
Chamberlin dominated the 60's and early 70's as the best C of all time.
2. Kareem Abdul Jabbar
19 time All Star
11 All Defensive Teams
6 time MVP
Jabbar picked up where Chamberlin left off as the Best big man of the 70's and 80's.
3. Michael Jordan
14 time All star
9 all defensive teams
5 Time MVP
Jordan is the greatest SG of all time. However after that is when the debates begin.
4. Lebron James
14 Time All Star
6 All defensive teams
4 time MVP
Lebron is the greatest SF ever beyond we will leave the rest to be debated.
5. John Stockton
10 time All Star
5 all defensive teams
8th all time in steals per game
1st in total career steals
2nd in career assists per game.
Stoctkton was one of the best defensive PG's ever and an elite playmaker.
Stockton has a real argument for the best PG ever.
Do you agree or disagree? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
