The NBA is a place where legends of basketball are not born but revealed. This is because, before you enter the league, you have to have already started showing signs of greatness. A lot of players have been in and out of the league, but which of these have had the privilege of making a lasting mark? Here is a list of the ten best basketball players of all time.
No record of the greatest players in the basketball game should dare begin with any other name other than MJ. Chicago Bulls pride in the 6 NBA titles winner, 12 MVPs, 6 for finals and 6 for the regular-season wins.
Any defender in the game today must have a Bill Rusell poster in their room. The Boston Celtics player has impressive numbers, but better so, his defence mechanism always dominated the game.
The Los Angeles Lakers had a fantastic number 32 player from the beginning. He took home five titles, three final MVPs and three regular-season wins.
If you want to learn consistency in every game, then Jabbar would be the best player to teach this.
No, he was not an example of athleticism, but he still possessed exceptional competitiveness.
Still making his name great, the player is ten seasons into the league and doing as great as other legends.
His average is between 22 and 25 season wins, yet if it were not for the postseason, he would be closer to MJ.
This is another symbol of consistency with great promise.
O’Neal had a strength advantage that he made perfect use of, making him one among the best.
To wrap up the list, the Dream Shake move legend should be marked as a notable role model to famous faces such as Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.
