Basketball has only been a really competitive sport for 50-60 years. 100 more years would nearly triple the amount of history. It's probable that the majority of top 10 players today won't be top 10 in 100 years.

Idk how they could remain a top 10 though. Like, how many of us take the football players of the 40's or 50's seriously? At the time and before they had there top 10's and with time people forgot about the past players essentially. The sport doesnt. And the fans that love basketball history don't but a lot do.



They will clone our greats and have them go against the current stars X). Train them from birth. Maybe even cross them

Wilt Chamberlain/Shaq hybrid

or better yet, Kobe and Scal

Nope....nobody takes the top 10s on here seriously now.

In a few years u will see a new hotshot everyone will call GOAT, and lebron and Kobe and Shaq of this recent era will be considered dominant in a weak and soft era. Happens every generation....

Even if no player ever come close to them, they will all be forgotten. Nobody cares about people they are not familiar with, especially when they're not familiar with the context of their career.

If Kobe is anywhere in it, then nobody will take it seriously.
