The NBA is the greatest basketball code in the world and as a result, there have been many great players showing off their immense skills. Therefore, I have decided to make a list celebrating who I think are the best 10 NBA players of all time.
- Tim Duncan
Tim Duncan was a power forward for the San Antonio Spurs, he was an incredible player and was capable of dominating on both ends of the court, which he did consistently.
- Bill Russell
Bill Russell was a star center for the Boston Celtics, he is an 11-time champion and 5-time MVP, with the superstar experiencing more wins than pretty much anyone else in the NBA.
- Larry Bird
Larry Bird was a fantastic small forward for the Boston Celtics, who had some back injuries later in his career that caused him to not be in the top 10. Bird was an incredible shooter, rebounder and passer, with him playing his best games in the big games.
- Shaquille O’Neal
Shaq was a fantastic player for the Los Angeles Laker, however, many believe that he could have been better than what he was. He was a monster on the court but only finished his career with one MVP trophy, however, three finals MVP’s. A massive presence on the court and of course he was, Shaq was a giant.
- Wilt Chamberlain
Chamberlain was a star center for the Los Angeles Lakers, with him literally being an unstoppable offensive player. He currently holds the record for the most points and the most rebounds in a game with 100 and 50, which proves that he was truly a champion.
- Kobe Bryant
the recently retired Kobe Bryant was a champion of champions for the Los Angeles Lakers. An incredibly skilled player if not the most skilled in the NBA’s history with five championship rings to his name, as well as a plethora of other awards.
4. LeBron James
Most recently LeBron James is a star for the Cleveland Cavaliers and is regularly compared to the great Michael Jordan. LeBron has won almost every awards and multiples of them as well, with the start only adding to that every season.
- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Another champion from the Lakers, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was a star center, with the superstar winning six NBA championships and a record six NBA regular season MVP’s.
- Magic Johnson
The point guard from the Lakers in Magic Johnson is considered one of the most skilled players to ever play the game. A fantastic leader and was just able to do it all, Johnson was one of the most unique NBA players in history.
- Michael Jordan
Is anyone really surprised? The legendary shooting guard from the Chicago Bulls in Michael Jordan is still talked about now, as if he is still playing. It is unlikely that we will ever see a player like Jordan again, with him dominating the 90’s.
