[/td] [/tr][/table] That was the original list above. Now lets see who's gotta pack up and make room for the new greats. Who ya'll kicking off the list and whoya'll adding.

Now there's 3 groups of players that could change the list.

1. Players that were over looked the 1st time- Dominique Wilkens, Reggie Miller, Gary Payton

2. Active Players that have won a spot on the list- Kobe, Lebron, Tim Duncan, Allen Iverson, Jason Kidd, Kevin Garnett, Dwyane Wade

3. Active Players that have a good chance of improving into category 2 above- Carmelo, Dwight Howard, Yao, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul

This should be fun....30 pgs?


Edit: Where's my boy KG? Is it even worth arguing for him on this board? I can see at least 10 guys KG is ahead of. And that's just skimming through.

Eh, I'm off to bed...I'll argue tomorrow.

^TGR, we first need to make a list of dudes who are DEF still on, no ?'s asked...that will make it a lot easier. After a quick skim I say it's 35 or sothat are complete no-brainers, maybe more. Then we can go from there...




P.S.: I was @ the ASG in Cleveland when this list was announced and ALL these dudes were in the house simultaneously!

See i dont know about adding KG to that list. While he has put up good numbers, has a mvp and championship ring for the majority of his career he has been aloser. A good player but I honestly dont know if he is NBA's top 50.


And im sorry but I do not count all star appearences as a real good determining factor.

Also if we're adding a player obviously we're taking away a player but are we doing that gaurd for gaurd and big for big?

Three players I know will def be on that list is Timmy, J Kidd, and Kobe.

Lebron has the number and has a great chance of being put on that list.

should be gone.


he won way more at UCLA than in the NBA.


it's not really his fault he was injured that much, but he didn't really do anything in the NBA to deserve being on that list.

C'mon man. His stats for the years he was > 20 pts., > 11 boards, > 5 Assists is mad clutch in an all-time perspective. And that doesn't evenreally include is defensive abilities.

People need to just stop looking at career averages and actually find out what the player has accomplished throughout his career.

Next we'll see "John Stockton... 13 & 10, off the list!".
