    6. Bob Pettit
    7. Giannis Antetoukounmpo
    8. Pau Gasol
    9. Anthony Davis
    10. Kevin McHale

    I know Giannis hasn't had much post season success but he is back to back MVP which is very Impressive and puts him in elite company. An Alpha ring would boost him to #2 IMO.

    10. Hayes

    Can't stand Hayes as a player, team cancer, inefficient, black hole, was close to replacing him with Gasol at #10, but thought that would be taking it too far since Hayes does have more individual accomplishments.

    Petit
    McHale
    Hayes
    Giannis
    AD

    I'm giving the first 3 names the benefit of having their legacies etched in stone with Giannis/AD still building theirs, so it feels a bit weird for me to rank them over those guys *right now*. But it's obvious they are trending to end up higher and both knocking on the top 5 door over the next 4-5 years.

    Was McHale widely thought of as a black hole on offense in his day? I have some late 80s Celtics games on DVD and man, alot of the time the ball went into him you weren't getting it back. He was obviously a deadly post scorer but makes me wonder if that would put a cap on his teams success if he was 'the man'. Or was he simply playing as the Celts wanted? Given their success I can't say they made the wrong call, but it makes me wonder what his ability to carry a team over multiple seasons would be like when comparing him to other guys on the list.

    He improved his passing a bit by '86, but yea, he was never considered a passer by any means.

    He may struggle leading a team as the #1 man the same way AD did, given he doesn't make plays for his teammates, his individual accolades even fall short compared to other players we are discussing, but McHale at his peak was a monster, unguardable in the post, no player in history had the variety of post moves he had. And defensively he was top tier, better defensively than guys like Barkley, Dirk, Karl, & Hayes. I tend to value his peak very high. It's only a matter of time AD & Giannis pass up McHale though.
