It brings me to another point, you look at ISH's top players of all time and they have nash over iverson.....Really?

Steve nash who never once played defense in his life is better than ai one of the most unstopable scoring forces ever. Who single handedly prevented the lakers dynasty from a perfect sweep in the playoffs.

History does funny things, but if you lived in that era and watch the games you know.

Everyone who saw the NBA from 1985 to 1995 Knew Barkley Was Better Untill His Back Injuries. Its Only the Kiddos the Watched the NBA from 1995-96 Onwards and Jazz Fans Who Think Malone Was Better as a Total Player...Which is Wrong because they Did Not See a Healthy Barkley. Infact, Many of Those Fans Even Claim Stockton as Better Tham Magic Johnson.
