I hated Shaq so much. He's arguably the most dominant big man in terms of physical strength and power..... but the league also made him that dominant by not letting people defend him.
I hate how he put LeBron in a lakers uniform. His legacy won't be as a Laker.
But he must be doing post 1980 or something, because Wilt? Hello?
This list is kinda bad..
Kareem, MJ, Lebron, Wilt, Magic, Russell, Bird, Kobe, Hakeem, Elgin Baylor.
Ha, totally missed Kareem and Bill Russel. So I'm not sure why he missed out on Chamberlain.
Would you put Wilt as a Sixer or Laker?
Too many Lakers
On 2k I made him a Blazer...
Good question. But I'd lean towards Hakeem or Duncan. Probably Duncan.
Kobe Bryant doesn't belong in the top-ten. There's no way I'd take him over Jordan, James, Abdul-Jabbar, Chamberlain, Magic, Bird, Robertson, Russell, Olajuwon or O'Neal at a minimum.
I was with you til he won the last two rings. Those LAL teams weren't all that good, not knocking Pau but it was pretty impressive to me Kobe got to 5 and two without Shaq.
Wilt has got to be in there. Terrible. Over Tim, Shaq, Kobe, maybe Hakeem.
Bro, those Laker teams had a ton of talent, Bynum at the time was arguably 1b to Howard’s 1a. They had prime Odom, Pau, and a still clutch Artest.
In terms of Championship teams they werent that talented. Straight up talent, they were worse than all the 2010 champions except Dallas.
That’s not a fair barometer though, as the nba totally has changed. The Mavs championship was the end of an era.
I just dont think that team was all that. Bynum averaged like 15-8 for those teams and was a solid player but not a great one. Pau was a allstar level PF Odom was a good bench player, but that was Kobe’s team, and I think there are very few guys in the history of the NBA who you could sub out Kobe for on that team and they’d win championships.
