Default Re: Rank ISH's top 15 NBA Players of All-Time in offense, defense, and rebounding

People clearly have no idea how good Oscar Robertson was.

It is criminal to see people ranking Jordan ahead of Robertson for rebounding.

Meanwhile, although defense wasn't his strong point, he was a far better defender than Magic Johnson.

What I'm about to say has nothing to do with the fact he averaged a triple-double for his first five seasons, but Oscar Robertson is the greatest all-around basketball player ever. LeBron James and Michael Jordan are the only players who come close.

To see him so massively overlooked in these rankings is indefensible. Go do your homework.
