David robinson is too high. Probably shouldn't even be on this list. Barkley had more points, assists, rebounds, and steals per game.

are you serious lol? probably one of the most athletic player in the history, a 7 footer with the speed of a guard. the combination of scoring, rebounds, and defense, steals and blocking shots. one of a few players to ever win defensive player and mvp... keep in mind his all-nba 1st team is low because he had to compete for 1 spot every year, while other positions had 2

I feel Duncan is way too high. Yes he's aged gracefully and has always been a stud but what did he bring to the game that we haven't seen before? He didn't change the NBA game in anyway so I cant put him in the top 5. As far as being a winner he's right up there, but put him in a mediocre ball club even in his prime and I doubt he would have made as great impact as he has on the Spurs.

lol Kobetards can't even put Kobe nowhere near 1 or 2 cause they know he is not that good. What kind of a circlejerk is this?

stockton and dirk would have been the next ones on my list. lebron still hasnt won a title without colluding and as "the man" so until he does that...

i know malone and barkley never won a title either but what knocked lebron below them is the clutch factor aka the "clutch gene". when the bright lights come on, lebron shrinks. the Chosen One turns into the frozen One too, too, many times

plus the constant crying and complaining... and quitting... he cries about hard fouls in an era that protects an offensive player more than ever. how would he last in the 80s and 90s against the knicks, pistons, celtics, sixers, and lakers who were all known for their physical play?

what about the 60s and 70s where players traveled by trains and railroads to game, without todays knowledge of nutrition, training, and medicine? they played games in arenas with no air conditioner (the forum and the boston garden)...

Lebron is the only player in today's era that would REGRESS playing 30-50 years ago
