Magic Johnson from 86-90 was better than Hakeem's 2 year run during Jordan's absence.

How is Kobe already getting votes? He's got a borderline top 10 peak at best. If I looked at it closer, he might be in the 12-15 range somewhere.

Probably not. I'm just hoping Bird, Kareem, or Russell pick-up votes, or we could see the power of the Kobe stans get him into the top 6-10.

Yeah, that's my next two votes, too. Just not sure on the order, yet.

After that it starts to get hairy. I don't know enough about how good some of the players in the 50s-80s were at their peaks. I feel like LeBron's peak is top 7-10 worthy and think Magic should be in the top 10 somewhere, too. Russell never had just one overwhelming dominating statistical peak, but winning at the rate he won is dominating in a different sense.

I'm leaning towards Hakeem here. How has Elgin Baylor not gotten votes, yet Kobe has . That's a travesty...

Is how I've voted/am voting so far.
Bird was never better than LeBron... Basketball is played on two ends of the court.

Never understood the fascination of people going crazy over players they either never saw or can't really watch film of in full context. Honestly, that would drive me absolutely insane. Going off statistics and written word. Insane.

It's like boxing people stating Harry Greb was a greater fighter than Ray Robinson.

That's how we go off of history. Written words and word of mouth from others.

From the Bible to your 9th grade American History book.
