Why are you so angry? That's your second negative post in this thread.
You talk as if you know everything and others know nothing.
I'm well aware of Thurmond's incredible defensive abilities. However, there are dozens of legendary defenders to choose from, so he's not a lock for the top 10.
There's nothing disrespectful about having Thurmond about 10th to 15th all-time amongst the best defenders in basketball history.
I think you're the only one around here who is being disrespectful by assuming that others know less than you do.
