    In the aftermath of Lebron winning his 2nd title, I think everyone more or less knows that he's a top 10 player ever at this point, so I thought it would be interesting to see where people think and how their greatest players list have changed. Not to mention, I don't think this thread has been around in a while.

    1. Jordan
    2. Russell
    3. Kareem
    4. Magic
    5. Shaq
    6. Duncan
    7. Hakeem
    8. Bird
    9. Lebron
    10. Wilt
    11. Kobe
    12. West
    13. Julius
    14. Karl Malone
    15. Garnett

    I assume this is "accomplished", not "best". Otherwise it wouldn't make sense to talk about the number of titles. I think when people say 'greatest', they generally mean legacy (individual and team accomplishments, and in general impact on the sport, dominance of the era).

    I don't think Lebron's better than Hakeem yet, but that's a terrible argument. Is Dirk superior to Lebron now?

    1-MJ
    2-Magic
    3-Lebron
    4-Bird
    5-Kobe
    6-Hakeem
    7-Shaq
    8-Kareem
    9-Duncan
    10-Wilt
    11-Dr J
    12-Oscar
    13-Malone
    14-Russell
    T15-Stockton (ugh)
    T15-Nash
    17-Mosas
    18-Barkley
    19-Ewing
    20-McHale

    That list is for best players, not accomplishments. If it were an accomplishment list it wouldn't really be an opinion, and it doesn't take into account the level of competition they were playing.

    Btw, I might not even agree with myself on some of these. It gets hard after the top 5 or 6... Lol

    how is it a terrible argument? the divas joined the gangbang auditions in their 20s so they wouldn't have to do all the work,and as you saw throughout the series, both wade and lebron went games where they weren't even m.i.a. they went straight awol.
    Hakeem in the first championship could not take a night off, even in the games his team lost.

    Why are people putting Duncan over Hakeem ._____. Hakeem was so much more dominant it's not even funny
