    Impossible to compare the generations

    Not the same game

    Terrible list

    Today's players can't shoot without space & don't play D

    1950s-70s was all big men

    75-95 the only era that mattered, where the game was pure and the best aspects of current game met w the best aspects of the original game.

    Dirk Nowitzki not on list? Is it because he is white?

    R.I.P. Reggie Lewis. He would have made this list if not for his unfortunate passing.

    I'd have Rasheed Wallace on the list, he doesn't have a good reputation so that will likely hurt him, but I'd have him on the list.

    Bill Walton shouldn't be on the list, he had too many injuries too soon, he only made the All-star team twice.
