Iverson would be at the end of my top 50, not in the middle of it.

Gary Payton, Jason Kidd, Paul Pierce, Bill Walton, Dave Cowens, and even Dwight Howard should be above him.

Dwight needs more work in

not saying they he will be ranked higher than Iverson at some point but just not right now.

How do Nash and AI go over Kidd and Payton? All four played in roughly the same era (90; 94 through 96 drafts.)

I'm guessing they went higher do to their MVP Awards in the 2000s but GP and Kidd were better.



Anyway, my vote goes to Adolph once again. Schayes was a top player for 3 different eras. Can't say the same about Hayes, Cowens, Walton, GP or whoever else is getting votes.

As much as I love McHale, at what number of this voting does Sampson become an option?

We're coming up on McHale territory to be sure, but it's his versatility more than any single series is the reason why. McHale could be your second to fifth best player, start or come of the bench and his primary contribution could be on offense or defense. Not many guys outside of the top 15 you can say that about. McHake's only major argument against is that he was never an alpha player or a teams star and his personality seemed to suggest he couldn't be.

You seriously cannot vote for an injury plagued center like Bill Walton right before saying an accomplished superstar like Iverson shouldn't be 36. That just doesn't look right.

It's fine if you value peak a lot. Walton proved he could lead a team to a title. Iverson, even with a decade plus prime never did so.

I'll vote Walton because I have him in my top 30, Iverson is outside my top 40.

It should be said that I love Iverson as a player and think he gets a bad rap too often as a chucker. That guy was elite no question, not sure he could lead you to a title but I'd give him equal odds as a guy like Pippen or David Robinson in that role.

Tallies

Dave Cowens - 6
Bill Walton - 5
Dolph Schayes - 2
Elvin Hayes - 1
Pistol Pete - 1
Dennis Rodman - 1
James Worthy - 1
Gary Payton - 2
Kevin Mchale - 1

I didn't count ScalabrineStan since he has less than 100 posts, that is the rule right?
