I see your point but I think you can place Wade here for his 2006 Finals performance. I would have him around 31 or 32 though.

But I would pick a prime Ewing over him any day.

Lets Remember that Stockton in his Prime Was Putting Pup like 16-17 PPG on like 54% FG, 13-14 APG and 3.0 SPG...

Best Pure PG Ever

Agreed and Stockton was a nasty dirty player. I like that. Played hard all the time.

Why not ?

Wade's a better player than Stockton and is probably going end up more accomplished.

It's Willis reed. An MVP, 2 rings and 2 finals MVPs in a span of 10 seasons is Top 30 worthy.

Clyde Frazier. Great defender, should have been the 73 Finals MVP and was the best player on the 72 team that went to the Finals also. From what I've seen and what I've read and heard from older people, also one of the best mid-range shooters ever. Great rebounder for a guard. Don't see why Stockton should be ranked ahead of him.

So where is Joey Crawford ranked then? 29.5?

Or pass, or make free throws. He didn't play like the best 3rd guy in league history for those last 2 Bulls championships, either. A perennial distraction whose drinking/partying affected his on court performance.

Was he the 3rd best player on those bad-boy Pistons? Or was it Laimbeer? Hmmmm, I've never really thought about it. I'll look into it....

No idea where people are getting the idea that wade this high is a problem. At least 14 people on this list...sharing a league with Wade? might not be better. 4-5 people already on it have been widely considered worse than Wade at some point in or near their primes sharing a league with him. Hes a 2 time champ. Leagues leading scorer. No less than 10 of the guys ranked over him never accomplished what he did as a team leader and the great number of them had more talent than he did in 06 to do it.

I love John Stockton. You put he and wade in the same league in their primes nobody asks who is better. Its Wade. Hes been as good as some people on this list in their primes since his second season.
