Vote - Steve Nash. He is the 4th GOAT PG behind Frazier, Oscar, and Magic. He was better than Isiah, Stockton, etc. to me.

Drexler? Oh dear. Five to ten places too early, at the expense of more deserving players.

Lots of worthy players to choose from, but I'm going with Dolph Schayes here.

Schayes, a 38% career shooter, is a a more "worthy" player, right?

Elvin Hayes is my vote

Hayes led the entire Playoffs in points that year.
Hayes led his team in points, rebounds, and blocks in the '78 playoffs when they won the Championship, so he was clearly the best player on the team.

8th all-time on the NBA scoring list with 27,313 points
4th alltime on the NBA rebounding list with 16,279 rebounds
20th all-time in blocks with 1,771

NBA champion (1978)
**Robbed of Finals MVP (1978)
12 NBA All-Star (1969–1980)
NBA scoring champion (1969)
3 All-NBA First Team (1975, 1977, 1979)
3 All-NBA Second Team (1973, 1974, 1976)
2 NBA All-Defensive Second Team (1974–1975)
NBA All-Rookie First Team (1969)
I've heard from posters here that he wasn't a good teammate, but I think he has the best career out of everybody else. He did good on the court it seems.

If Steve Nash (my favourite player of the last 10-years, but still) gets voted in ahead of Dolph Schayes, Bill Walton, Dave Cowens and George Gervin, then this list is officially ****ed.

You need to get past the basic statistics. I already pointed out in the last thread why Hayes is a bad choice, but you obviously can't get past the stats. Why else would you vote for him over genuinely better players from his own era like Cowens and Walton?

As for Schayes, he played in 12 consecutive All-Star Games, is a 6 x All-NBA 1st Team and 6 x All-NBA 2nd Team member, and won a championship.

Since you love statistics so much, put this one in your pipe and smoke it: Dolph Schayes has the highest Win Shares of the 1950s.

Meanwhile, Schayes' True Shooting Percentage was higher than George Mikan, Bob Cousy and others.

It was the 50s, that was the norm.

Arizin, career 41, Ed Macauley career 43, career 44. The already voted in Cousy career 37 and Mikan career 40.

Schayes and Hayes all have basically the same awards (rings, all-star teams, all-nba teams). Hayes is top 7 in career points and rebounds, Schayes isn't.
Schayes isn't more "worthy" than Hayes is all I'm saying. And I don't care if people say he was a bad teammate, they still won a championship with him leading the team in points, rebounds, and blocks - yeah what a horrible teammate.
