what is the criteria...accomplishments or how good they were at their best as players???

I missed voting for 11 but my vote would be for this. His only major fault is passing.
Kobe.

Are you psychic? If not, ranking players based on potential is futile. I suggest ranking players as if they retired today. From that perspective, Dirk Nowitzki isn't close to being the #12 greatest NBA player of all time.

Moreover, Nowitzki isn't even close by your criteria. If his career follows a usual route, then I doubt he'll ever be close. This is probably his prime right now. Unless he gets a lot better, he's not close.

I'm sticking with Mikan, for the reasons I mentioned in the last thread.

Damn, it was real close between Julius Erving and Elgin Baylor. Both were high flying small foward who could score with the best of them, as quick as guards and could rebound like power fowards.


But I'd have to give to 'the Doctor.' He was the ABA in the early-mid 1970's winning 3 MVP awards and 2 titles as part of the New York Nets. In the NBA, he led the 6ers the the Finals his first year in 77. 3 years later, he was back in the Finals in 80 & 82 only to loose twice to the Lakers. He finaly got his NBA ring in 1983 on one of the best squads ever.


He is one of only a handfull of players to make the All-Star team in every season of his career and was the 1981 NBA MVP and 5th all-time in total points with a little over 30000.

Thank god Jerry West finally gets a spot. It's probably way to early to put in Arvydas, because it is an NBA list, so my vote is going to go to Julius Erving for all the reasons people have already posted.

The way the votes have gone it HAS to be Dr.J for the same reason Magic/Larry > Russell. Scoring >> than MVP's and winning.

Dr.J > scorer than Moses so Dr.J >> Moses.

Why is West > Moses again? I missed that part...scoring must be a MAJOR reason.
