1. Michael Jordan (obvious reasons)

2. LeBron James (In terms of dominanace and skill level, I don't see anyone who comes closer to taking over the game the MJ did; and if he ends up with at least 5 championships without any more losses, I'm putting him at #1)

3. Magic Johnson (I could almost make him 2B. but since that's not a thing, Magic and LeBron were basically equals. Both of them could play all 5 and were great overall players, but I give LeBron the edge because of the terrible teams he's caried to the Finals in his career)

4. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (Sky Hook. I don't think I need to say anything else)

5. Larry Bird (Again, pretty obvious, but he was just overall, one of the best to pass, shoot, and defend the basketball)

6. Kobe Bryant (Arguably the second greatest scorer in NBA history behind Kareem, although I think Curry will have something to say about that in a couple of years, but he was just an iconic figure. I'd move him up a couple spots, but his past 2 or 3 years have hurt his legacy, albeit he was injured, but still)

Shaquille O' Neal (The most dominant Center to ever play the game; I fell bad for the younger heneration because I don't think there will be a Center who will come close to scratching what Shaq was. And the fact that he was able to win on multiple teams just adds to his greatness)

Tim Duncan (The greatest PF to play the game, again, he's an iconic figure. And he's been winning ever since he entered the league, regardless of who his coach and team was)

Wilt Chamberlain (It's almost impossible not to have this guy on your Top 10, considering he dropped 100 in a game...without being a good free throw shooter)

Oscar Robertson (Averaging a double double for a season is pretty ccool, but this guy averaged a triple double for an entire season...that's absolutely absurd to think about, especially considering how well rounded he was)
