    I love those guys, especially KAJ's skyhook, awesome to watch, these are just my personal favs. I'm a sucker for shooters. I put Bird second, but the whole Bird Vs Magic really elevated both of their games and their duels are some of the best. Bird is not the same without Magic and vis-versa. Those 2 (Magic and KAJ) are top 5 all-time greats no doubt, but as a bird lover had to knock down magic a few pegs :p

    KAJ should be on my list, though, Milwaukee KAJ when he was an absolute monster. There's some rare footage of the Wilt past his prime versus Kareem which is a pretty fun watch.
