    Re: ESPN Top NBA 100 players of all time

    What's the point of these lists? I mean really? They do a yearly list of top 100 current NBA players and that's subjective. Let alone an all-time list with guys who played under different rules and different generations. Does it really matter who is 35 vs who is 87? The fact that people even debate these things is confusing to me at times.

    It is all subjective. The point is to generate conversation mostly. However, I have seen you engage in this at a micro level, not Top 100 but say top 5...

    I always felt like Nique was screwed when he wasn't included in the Top 50 players several years back.

    I state my opinion and move on (i.e. Kobe is top 10 if some of the players in the top are top 10).

    Right and there isn't anything wrong with that opinion. That's all it is, an opinion. As you say it is subjective.

    But I don't know why you find it confusing that people debate "these things" when you have debated "these things."

    I posted it because it was a new list, and I heard about it on local Dallas Sports radio. I was primarily happy to see Nique get more respect than he has gotten in the past. I was also surprised how high some of the current players are.

    I'm just glad TD got proper respect, but I'd rank him ahead of LeBron. Duncan has more titles, is best player ever at his position, and accolades for days. He also won a title himself, I mean Parker and Manu are great, but he didn't have to switch teams to win it all. Parker was young for TDs second, not there his first, and Robinson was very old when they won the second one. They also had to do it in the most brutal conference in NBA history, the West in the 2000s. Lakers, Suns, Spurs,Mavs, Blazers, Kings, etc.. Three of those teams won titles, and two of them won five of the ten titles in the 2000s.

    Let me guess, you are mad because no UK players made the list?

    Cmon man, everyone knows that Lebron and Dirk (among others) are really wildcats.

    I think using titles as the be all end all is wrong (you did include other reasons, I know). I think you can make an argument for Duncan over Lebron without using titles. I will say with respect to titles, Duncan has had the good fortune of being coached by Pop. Not saying the Spurs wouldn't have won multiple without him, but probably not as many. Coaching is underrated when looking at titles, IMO. The Spurs are a model of consistency and that is in large part to both Duncan and Pop.

    Don't be salty because that's what LBJ and Dirk said.
    KT is so knowelegable about basketball, he can back his **** up. He can rip a program 6 ways to Sunday, yet turn around in the next breath and explain why that same program should/could/will be/is a great program.

    I like and respect kentubby, he does know his stuff when it concerns college basketball.

    This board would be boring if it wasn't for Kentubby's posts and the responses he gets.
    -fatboydog

    Kentubby is one of my favorite posters on this board. Sure he has some personal views, but this board would be so if everyone agreed all the time that it wouldn't be worth going to. I'd challenge you to find another poster on this board that knows as much about EVERY SEC team as he does. He knows more about lowly South Carolina and our recruiting then alot of our own fans do. It would be a sad day for the basketball forum if he ever left.
