Moses? Outside of 2 post seasons and 1 dominant regular season, his career was an overwhelming disappointment. He got bounced form the 1st round to the "mighty" Hawks in '79 (His MVP campaign), he got SWEPT by rookie Bird in '80, he lost again in the 1st round in '82, and, going into the '84 playoffs as defending champs, he led the Sixers to ANOTHER 1st round loss against the Nets (The Nets!!). He was cooked by the age of 30, after which he didn't get out of the 1st round for the remainder of his career. He couldn't defend. He couldn't pass. He exhibited very little of the qualities that make you a great leader or motivator. OVERRATED.


Oscar? Oscar??? His moody, egomaniacal demeanour cost his teams the success his talent deserved. He was not a fun guy to be around. He sucked the life out of almost every game. For an entire decade, with Oscar at the helm, Cincinatti were 2-6 in the playoffs. 10 years and he won 2 ****ing playoff series!! He didn't even make the playoffs for 3 years IN A ROW between '68 & '70!! The most OVERRATED great in NBA history.


It HAS to be Jerry West. Undoubtedly one of the unluckier players of all time. He was OUTSTANDING in just about every post season from '61 - '70, made countless clutch shots, and had countless big performances. His Laker team kept losing to Russell's Celtics primarily because Russell could do whatever he wanted in the paint and under the boards. They had no one to match up with him. He has an MVP (Reed screwed him over in '70), 2 FMVPs (Got robbed in '70, AGAIN. Reed most definitely DID NOT deserve it, not after being almost WORTHLESS for the final 3 games) and loads of all-nba first and all-defensive first teams (If the award existed). It's about time he stopped getting so underrated....

Like JLaubs says, stop giving West a pass for losing in the finals so many times when you don't give one to Wilt

OP hates Wilt, so he ended both votings that had Wilt close to second way too prematurely. Bird won with 27 votes, almost half of what some other spots needed, and the other ones were a much bigger difference than 4 votes. Obvious bias is obvious.

And you know it's going to happen with this one right now (LeBron is beating West and Moses 14-6-5) It's not going to end until one of them catches up, or LeBron gets like a 30 vote lead. I don't understand the point of making voting threads if you change the criteria for winning every other thread.
