    I think that is a great list.. You did a great job with the players you selected, I would only disagree with some of the order..

    Karl Malone at #10/John Stockton at #16.. Those guys played together for like 18 years. If they were 2 of the top 16 players to ever play, they would have won a title. I would have Malone in the high teens, and Stockton in the 20s.

    Patrick Ewing at #11... This pick makes no sense to me. Ewing had a pretty decent cast for a lot of his career, and didn't win a ring. You have to have a ring to be that high.

    Tim Duncan at #14.. Yeah, way too low. 5 combined regular season and Finals MVPs. Enough said.

    Oscar Robertson at #22. Too low. He was one of the 3 best players in the league for quite a while.

    Julius Erving at #23.. Yeah, again, too low. I think he's top 15. He changed the game the way very few players have.

    No Bob Pettit.. This probably just slipped your mind, your list is too good to completely leave off a player like Pettit.

    Chauncey Billups at #31. This is the only player I saw that I thought had no business being on the list. And I love Chauncey Billups. He is a pure winner. But he has career stats of 15 points, 6 assists, 3 rebounds. And those numbers will just fall even farther now that he's out of his prime.

    LeBron James at #15, Dwyane Wade at #19.. LeBron has a good shot at top 10 someday, and Wade could definitely be top 20.. But not today.

    Isiah Thomas at #36. Personally, I have Isiah and Stockton real close, almost a coin flip.

    Kevin McHale at #31.. Again, probably shouldn't be on the list, and if he is, it should be pretty low. He was the 3rd best player on 3 championships. That kind of makes him a slightly better Lamar Odom.

    Clyde Drexler at #46. A little low..

    Picks I loved....

    Jason Kidd at #26. A lot of people would put him a lot lower, but he is one of the top 5 PGs ever, and should be in the 20s.

    I liked your top 5. I thought that was pretty accurate.

    Scottie Pippen at #20. Not many people would put him this high, but again, like Kidd, he was one of the 5 best players at his position to ever play the game. Impact on the game was huge. Was pretty much the first forward that could also bring the ball up the court and set up a play like a PG. Was so underrated in that aspect, he might be the best passing SF ever, including Larry Bird and LeBron, 2 amazing passers.

    Overall, great list.. It was fun critiquing.

    Duncan is over Barkley and Wilt is top 5. Even I am a Kobe fan I still think he's top 10 but not top 5.

    Awesome list.
