    Chris Mullin is my favorite , but he's not even the best player to come out of Brooklyn .

    Connie Hawkins and Bernard King would give him that work in their primes

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (born Ferdinand Lewis Alcindor, Jr.)

    In high school he led coach Jack Donahue's Power Memorial team to three straight New York City Catholic championships, a 71-game winning streak, and a 79–2 overall record. His 2,067 total points were a New York City high school record.

    He attended college at UCLA, where he played on three consecutive national championship basketball teams and was a record three-time MVP of the NCAA Tournament. UCLA's three-year record was 88 wins and only two losses. The dunk was banned in college basketball after the 1967 season, primarily because of Alcindor's dominant use of the shot. It was not allowed again until the 1976-1977 season.

    During his NBA career, Abdul-Jabbar was a record six-time NBA Most Valuable Player, a record 19-time NBA All-Star, a 15-time All-NBA selection, and an 11-time NBA All-Defensive Team member. He was also a member of six NBA championship teams as a player.

    At the time of his retirement in 1989, Abdul-Jabbar was the NBA's all-time leader in points scored, games played, minutes played, field goals made, field goal attempts, blocked shots and defensive rebounds.

    Being the best basketball player to come out of New York City is kind of like being the Guinness World Record holder for eating the most Cinnabon in an hour.

    It's impressive, but at the end of the day, no one really gives an asterisk.

    Not just the greatest New York player ever, but the only player who has a legit case for GOAT over Jordan.

    Yup big time failure of a thread. I think op meant MulLin was better than Marbury and Bassy. I can def think of at least 5 New Yorker better than him. He was a great player tho
