    I'd put the Big O as the best player for the Kings and Kareem as the best Milwaukee Buck. Otherwise pretty good list.

    As good as Ewing was, Walt "Clyde" Frazier led the Knicks to 2 titles

    The Lakers aren't even worth it, too many candidates. I would go with Magic too though.

    Could argue Nash over Barkley in Phoenix.

    Sorry Wade, but in the end Lebron is the best player to play on the Heat.

    Thomas in Detroit.

    No disrespect to Bird, who is one of my favorites all-time, but Russel set the foundations.

    P.Gasol in Memphis.

    KAJ for the Bucks.

    There's more that ill come back to later but I think Bill Walton gets the nod for the Blazers. Dude won a championship for them. He also started the big man curse in Portland.

    Shaq is the greatest player to ever suit up for the Magic - and he led them to the Finals. He was in another universe from Dwight. Dwight isn't even good compared to that generation of centers.

    ZEKE = Isiah Thomas for those who don't know. So everyone saying Thomas for Detroit, that is also who I am putting.

    I put Wade because he has the most championships for the Heat. LeBron will ultimately get it though.

    I HATE PAU, but yeah I guess so for now.

    I might go Mutumbo or English for Denver as well, but Melo is the only one I actually got to see play.
