You guys are showing your age.

Moses Malone would destroy some of the names on the lists I am seeing.

Clyde Drexler wasn't a bad player either.

Dirk Nowitzki....LOL

Moses Malone - yes.
Clyde - no

The mailman could be on this list also. It's just on opinions.
Also Oscar Robertson.

Then you havent seen Clyde play.

Which teams did Oscar Robertson play for in 1980s?

Like I said, some of you are showing your age.

Top 10? Are you sure? Are you being biased on the fact that he was a rocket? He could be top 15 and top 20 but there are many better than the dude. Top 10.

Dirk Nowitzki is best offensive frontcourt player.

Drexler? Other than longevity he has nothing on Durant or Chris Paul let alone some other players.

Dirk is not top 10. No defense. Drexler is better than Dork.

He isn't. He was barely better than Harden.

I have watched him since his Portland days. And yes I am sure he is top 10 when it comes to players since 1980.

Three finals appearance. One championship ring.

Best player on one of he elite teams of the late eighties and early nineties.

Was one of the best all around players after Jordan and one of the best SG to ever play the game. He was a Lebron-lite of his time. As a shooting guard filled up stats in points, rebounds, assists, and steals. Could score and defend and STILL is the BEST one man fast break machine I have ever seen.

A declining Clyde Drexler was too much to handle for Orlando on fast breaks in the finals. He killed them in the open court.

3. Larry Bird
4. Hakeem Olajuwon
5. Shaquille O'Neal
6. Tim Duncan
7. Kobe Bryant
8. LeBron James
9. Julius Erving
10. Charles Barkley

It's hard to make a top 10 list though with so many great players left out. Could easily have the likes of Moses, KAJ (even at his age), etc.

Durant already had 3 better seasons than Drexler's best season, Chris Paul had 4 better seasons.
