Maybe, however clearly he wasn't. He was a SG all the time in Orlando, getting his All-NBA Teams as a Guard, and he played SG for Orlando. There is no doubt about that, everyone remembers him as a SG in Orlando. And in Houston, the last couple of years he has played SG as well. Only 1 year he might've played SF, but ever since Battier has come, I don't think there is any doubt that McGrady is the SG and Battier is the SF.
I suppose I'm a little surprised Kobe is as high as #2.
After looking at the list, maybe that is just.
I've always had Jerry West as the #2 in my mind, but I suppose Kobe is just as good...maybe.
West still deserves number 2. Kobe at the end of the career will most likely have the 2 spot, but his career isn't even over yet. I think it's all the hype that Kobe is getting right now that they might've put him over West. He has some strong fans right now. I'm surprised Mark Jackson didn't put Kobe at number 1. He was probably too embarrased and didn't want to be the only one.
How is David Thompson or Jones not in the top 10? Unbelievable.
I can understand Thompson not being in the top 10. He put together five good to great seasons but then because drug and injury problems forced him off the map completely (he had one other mediocre season). Do those five seasons put him among the top ten? That being said he should be there ahead of Reggie Miller and Joe Dumars.
