    Thank you all for tuning in to this two part series! I know that cliff hanger in part 1 got some of y’all ready to square up but I hope the end result was worth the wait.
    Also I just have to say, throughout the process of making this video I spent hours and hours watching old film, looking up obscure stats and facts that only us basketball fans would appreciate, and watched clips of legendary moments and after awhile I caught myself getting lost in these old videos, in amazement at how incredible these players are and how awesome this sport is. Because of y’all I get to watch, dissect and analyze basketball for a living and I CANNOT thank y’all enough. This is truly the best job in the world and I’m going to continue to create this stories and videos for us to watch, share and enjoy. I Appreciate all of you 💯

      I think maybe Curry should be in tier 3 only because he revolutionized the game of basketball and because all the people that are above him are taller than him (without magic there are no point guards) and also because as you said, he is the basis of the greatest dynasty in NBA history. (Unanimous MVP) but the rest is okkei.

      I loved the pyramid. I would just make one minor adjustment. I would switch Bird and Magic. Bird was considered the GOAt by fans, players, and coaches throughout most of the 80s. Magic was considered the GOAT for a brief moment during the end of his career. I still love Magic. But the division that Bird was in and his refusal to lose made him tje GOAT of the 80s. I think he should have been in tier 2

    Michael Jordan was a great player but wasn't shit without pippen. 10% win rate in playoffs without pippen. Lebron proved he could make it to the finals without a decent team 2 years ago. Every stat you said about mj had to do with his team or the league around him. If you look at their personal stats lebron beats him in all of them. Lebron gets so disrespected just because mj was the greatest in an era of the NBA blowing up.

    I know way too little about the NBA to really make a claim Nowitzki‘s in the wrong tier. However, I think what other have in mind is, that some people out there - probably rightfully so - claim that Dirk as a 40% big man from downtown changed the game (or at least led the way to a change).... maybe that’s where they come from instead of the numbers you mention in the comparison with KG. Also, according to Wikipedia, he is number 6 all time scorer, beating KG and Tim Duncan (Overall and average). On the other Hand: both can offer other statistics that speak for them (let alone Duncan‘s rings)

    Really good list overall. Only thing I really disagree with is Kobe. Can't see him being a Goat candidate in all honesty. A brilliant player don't get me wrong, but he wasnt the best player in the league for that long. Early on in his career shaq and Duncan were better, wade probably was the best in his first championship 05-06, and at the end if the 00s, Lebron took over. Kobe was probably the best from 06-9. Very impressive, but he didnt have the long-term dominance that Jordan, wilt and Kareem had

  • Mr. Gibson
    Mr. Gibson Day ago

    You absolutely got the top tier right 100 percent but Larry Bird can't be behind Magic, no way. I mean the only attribute Magic had that was arguably better than Bird was passing, arguably... But Bird was a better shooter, scorer, rebounder and way better in the clutch also he was just as great of a champion. Larry Bird is the most underrated player in history.

  • Miren Arantza Esnal-Zufiaurre

    The way steph changed the game makes me think that he should be in level 3
    He is the best shooter of all time
    Has not missed a free throw in a 4th quarter since like his rookie season or something
    Probably top 3 handles of all time
    And he is only 6.3
    One of the most dangerous p&R games of all time as the ball handler
    And the ability to drop 30 without you noticing
    Just to clarify I am in no way a Sc fanboy just that you are not really giving him the credit he deserves

    Your argument for MJ at tier 1 about remembering your our favorites more favorably than realistically is exactly why you need to move LeBron and Kobe down and tier and move Larry Bird and Hakeem up a tier. Watch the footage, use the eye test, stop sleeping on Larry.
    When I was a kid Magic Johnson was my favorite basketballer cause he played like a globetrotter. But the older I get the more I realize that Larry was actually better. I think a lot of us sleep on Larry's greatness because he's white and it's easy to think that the white media was quick to heap praise on him for that reason. Bearing in mind that the same white media holds Bill Russell in higher regard than Bob Cousey and holds Elgin Baylor in higher regard than Jerry West, at least these days. I'm sure that in the 60s there would have been some racial media bias. Depending on the paper, the journalist, what part of America the reports were coming from etc.
    By the 80s if you wanted to be white and capture the imaginations of basketball fans, you had to be one hell of a player.
    Larry was that player. You guys need to start showing him a bit more respect. I swear Michael Jordan respects and fears Larry Bird more than your average basketball fan does these days.

    Wilt or Dr J should be tier 1 Kobe Duncan should be tier 2 with either Dr J or Wilt. LeBron should be on Tier 4 . Definitely over rated. If you are penalizing Durant for going to Golden State, You have to penalize LeBron for his super teams.

    I don't disagree with much on here other than thinking Kobe is clearly the weakest in Tier 2 and should probably be in Tier 3. I like Duncan and Shaq better, probably also Bird (esp considering peak), but probably would keep all them at Tier 3.
    It's worth noting that Kareem and Magic had each other as teammates for 10 years (half Kareem's career and almost all of Magic's). Lebron had Wade in his most dominant years. Kobe and Shaq. Shaq and Wade. Jordan and Pippen. And so on. This speaks to just how good Duncan and Hakeem were, esp Duncan who accomplished as much as any of the Tier 2 guys with respect to longevity and team accolades. Now I love Parker and Ginobili, but there's a reason nobody is gonna be bothered with them being left off this list. And you mentioned Larry's back - Duncan played most his career with 2 bum knees that forced him to completely switch up his playing style midway through. He's definitely Top 7, and I like him at #5.
