The NBA is has created for itself a history of greatness and an aura of legends. Legends that have names carved in stone for their stories will forever be remembered in American style folklore, I’m talking about the NBA though.
Recent arguments about who the greatest player of all time is, and the comments from Dwayne Wade that Micheal Jordan is the greatest of all time made us at Goalisma to look back in time to present you the top ten NBA players of all time.
REASONS WHY LEBRON JAMES IS BETTER THAN KOBE BRYANT
*Hakeem Olajuwon: This is a player who reached the top stage of his career at the age of 30. He peaked late if we may say, but Olajuwon on the court is a force to be reckoned with, a moving train, and if he was around today will give the star of the modern game, Lebron James a good run for his money.
*Larry Bird: Some say he’s the greatest of all time, but if you truly look at the game without emotion, his injuries limited him, without the injuries he would have been up there in the top three, but Larry bird deserves his spot among the best 10 basketballers ever.
* Wilt Chamberlain: One of the most dominant players ever in the game and a deserved number 8 spot.
* Bill Russell: A top player in his days, and a legend of the NBA, Bill Russell’s name will forever be remembered by NBA fans as he was exciting to watch. This makes him number 7 in our list of top 10 best NBA players of all time.
* Magic Johnson: He retired too early, if not, he would be the best NBA player of all time, or the second best.
*Tim Duncan: A dominant force in the game for almost 20 years. And a driving force behind the games most successful franchise ever.
* Shaquille O’Neal: The most dominant force on the court when it comes to the game of basketball. Shaquille was big and strong, and was always a problem for any opposition.
* Kareem Abdul Jabbar: The greatest scorer is NBA history, had longevity and dominance, one of the greatest ever.
* Lebron James: Who can ignore King James, would have been the greatest of all time if Micheal Jordan was a banker or Auto mechanic, but it is what it is.
* Michael Jordan: The greatest basketball player of all time.
