Default Highest Reasonable Ranking for KG

What do you think is the highest reasonable ranking for KG on the all-time list? Some idiots at realgm were saying he had a case for top 5 ever.

You sure they weren't talking top 5 PF ever?

Anyways, I have these guys ahead of him without a doubt (no order)

MJ
Russell
Kareem
Wilt
Bird
Magic
Kobe
Shaq
Hakeem
Duncan
Lebron
West
Oscar


Then you have guys that are debatable

Dr J
Barkley
Malone
Wade
Dirk
D-Rob
Baylor


It's hard to pick a specific number, but I guess the absolute highest ranking I could give him would be #14. Overall though he's anywhere from 14-20 for me.

Positive. There is a thread on their player comparisons board where some are arguing him for top 5 all-time OVERALL. Talk about being overrated.

What's wrong with my list? I think it's pretty damn accurate and fair.

LeBron over Shaq? Pippen, Dirk, and KG in the top 15? KAJ outside the top 3 and Kobe at #13.

That would be me. Didn't say I'd put him there, just said he has a fringe case (I don't care at all about accolades, just ability and level of play).

What's your criteria? Mine is just the order in which I'd take players in an all-time draft (for the record, I had KG at 9th in that thread, though the list wasn't in an exact order).

As long as you're consistent in what you value, I don't have any problem.

Just curious, where do you have Bill Russell on your list since you don't care about accolades?

If we don't take into account accolades then Kobe Bryant wouldn't even be top 50 on my list.

14 is the highest I go.

But he could be top 5 in all around game, tho.
Wilt, Oscar, Jordan, Duncan, KG in no order.

I know I'm missing somebody.
