Seems to be a 4 way race between Russell, Wilt, Kareem, and Magic.

How anyone can rank Kareem over the guy who almost single handily saved his legacy (i.e Magic Johnson) i'll never fully understand. In 10 seasons, and in the NBA's weakest ever decade (Post 50s), Kareem only made it to 2 NBA Finals, winning just 1 championship, got bounced from the 1st round twice, and missed the playoffs entirely for two straight seasons.

Not only was Russell the greatest defense/rebounding/shot blocking combo in NBA history (And it's not remotely close), he was the ultimate 'winner'. The Celtics were great BECAUSE of Russell, NOT the other way around.

I vote for Bill Russell.


Incidentally, Chamberlain and Kareem have NO business what so ever at being ranked this high. We can start talking about, and ranking them once Russell and Magic are out of the way.


This, good stuff. My vote is for Russell as well.

Based on what you said though, why do you have Jordan over Russell?

Kareem or Scal.

I can't decide between the two.
