Default In 100 years, will anyone take OUR top 10's seriously?

Considering how past players from any decade are treated by some fans today, I could honestly see no one 100 years from now thinking players like Russell, Duncan, Wilt or possibly even Jordan a top 10 player...Hell, maybe deservingly so



Don't anyone panic though

Time will treat the top 10 very well (minus Duncan and Hakeem). It's the 10-25 that will get shit on:

The Oscars, Havliceks, Wests, Garnetts, Moses Malones, etc.

Top 10 list basically consists of every great player from their respective eras....I currently have these guys in my top 5 in no particular order:

Wilt
MJ
Kobe
Magic
Kareem

In 100 years too many things may happen, the extinction of humanity, michael jordan cloning, a global dictatorship or maybe the sport has given way to video games

In 100 years ISH probably still won't have a search function so they won't be able to find our top 10's.

P.S. If anyone from the future is reading this, I for one welcome our new insect overlords.

I think Kobe is the only one will be left in the top 10 after 100 years.. No matter how many years, era, century will pass, Kobe will never be forgotten.. People will always remember him as the Greatest Player to ever play the game of basketball and after 100 years, people will view him as the ancient Gawd of Basketball..

Ever heard of a guy that had 4 more MVPs than Kobe that was also the leader/best player in all of his 11 championship runs?

Do people even take ISH's top 10 lists serious already? Too many teenyboppers here for that, sorry.

Guys like Jordan, Jabbar, Magic, Bird, & Wilt will never be knocked off. LeBron has a shot but he can't knock them all off. Players in the future will come up too but it will take a lot of new stars.

Everyone takes my top 10 seriously. I dunno about yours...
