    How is Kobe above the guy who carried him to three championships? That's like putting Keving McHale above Bird.

    Brace yourselves, here we go.

    I will be shocked if there will be a top ten list common to at least 3 members.

    Top 10 is really hard. No way to not contradict yourself. I don’t care as much about team accomplishments. They play a role, but I try to just ask who can do more to help my team win? Then, who of the guys that come to mind have proved it?

    Also, this is gonna piss some people off... But In order to make my top 10, they need to have been able to play in today’s game at least almost as well as they played in their era. Only exception to this is probably Magic.

    I feel good my about my top 5. 6-10 is fuzzy, but I’ll go with:
    1. LeBron
    2. MJ
    3. Kobe
    4. Hakeem
    5. Duncan
    6. Bird
    7. Shaq
    8. Magic
    9. KD (gag)
    10. Kareem

    I could be convinced to go with CP3, Wade, Malone, maybe Dr. J over Kareem.

    Guys like Harden, Curry, Westbrook, AD, will all end up in my top 10 if their careers stay on the current track.
