    No. Where is Lebron in this? Drop 9 and give us Lebron. Wilt Chamberlain at 6? He should be at 2, Bill Russel admitted Wilt was a better player and that it wasn’t even close.

  2. Dave Clapsaddle says:

    Kobe and Shaw should be nowhere on this list. I would put Jerry West on this list and Dr.J. you also have to consider Bob Pettit

    Terrible job. In another couple years Lebron will be put in and Olajohon eliminated
