Jordan is the only player that could get my parents to sit down and watch (and enjoy) an NBA game. People are just captivated by him.

I'd put

Vince Carter
Pre-injury Penny Hardaway
Magic
Rodman
Shaq
West
Bird
Pistol Pete

On that list as well.

Hakeem Olajuwon's Dream Shake- he is the only NBA player that mastered that legendary move. At 6'10 Hakeem is probably one of the most Versatile Center that i have ever seen.

Kareem Abdul Jabbar's Skyhook- probably one of the most unblockable shot in the history of the NBA. Magic Johnson in an interview called it as the sexiest shot that he have ever seen.

I put this 2 guy in the top 10 greatest showmen of all time because every time i watch a Vintage Classic NBA game. It quite entertain me and got me interested in watching those Greates Game because of their Classic Signature Move.

Yes, we can put Dennis Rodman on that lists because of the intensity of the Worm when grabbing the rebounds.

Rodman deserves to be on the list for sure. Between his attitude, all-or-nothing style of defensive play, diving face first into the sidelines to get a loose ball, and all the tatoos/hair dye/wacky stunts ... lets face it, he was probably as famous as Jordan was with the 90s Bulls.

Jordan actually remarked about Rodman after they got him that it was a relief because now he didn't have all the reporters running to his locker after a game straight away and Rodman shared some of that media scrutiny/fan adulation.

Based PURELY on the player's ability to entertain, I truely don't know where to begin...In this catagory, greatness is really only part of it, another would be swagger, to which different style insue different opinions on who was best better than who. Who is to say that Gary Payton doesn't belong above Zeke? It's hard...

No order:
Michael Jordan
Kobe Bryant
Dennis Rodman
Magic Johnson
Larry Bird
Vince Carter
Dominique Wilkins
Pete Mavrich
Julius Erving
Allen Iverson
