your list is close enough for me but no mention of Byron Scott? I mean if you got Paxson and Ron "Baby Jordan" Harper in there.

Harper was best from about 86 to 93. he's kind of a decade tweener. he was hell in his prime though.

Paxson had some good years. maybe about 5 or 6. he played some forward too though.

Forgot about B. Scott also, hell who else am I forgetting? Jeff Malone.

just a side note from all the top ten 80's teams by position, the Sixers may be the only team to field a player in every position.

PG- Maurice Cheeks
SG- Andrew Toney
SF- Julius Erving
PF- Charles Barkley
C- Moses Malone

Hell, you could argue Bobby Jones should be on one of the forwards list.

Very good list, I can't complain with that.

I'd add Darrell Griffith and Michael Cooper to the honorable mentions list

Dumars belongs at 5 in terms of ability but his best years were early 90s.

Jordan admitted that Dumars was the toughest defender he faced. Dumars was also a 20 ppg player who shot well from 3 and was clutch. He was one of the few guys who lit up Jordan at times in the playoffs.


Toney was a player but he had bad feet which really hurt his career.

I think Gervin and Drexler should be ahead of Moncrief.
