I view it as todays nfl conferences where alot of times teams don't even play against other teams. They are still in the same league but didnt get to meet.

also lets stop faking the funk, these threads are the greatest NBA players of alltime but I doubt most people even care if ABA statistics are included. Julius was that dude and lead a proffessional league in mvp's, championships etc....



A more fair comparison for those of you that refuse to use his ABA year is to take off the first 5 years of everyone that played and then see how they match up

Umm...I've been trying to vote in dr.J since #11, why you picking on me?

Do you guys think John Havlicek might be getting a bit underrated here?

8 x Champion
1 x FMVP
11 x All-NBA team
8 x All-Defensive team
13 x All-Star

Career Average: 21-6-5
Best season: 29-9-8 (thats almost a 30 point triple double right there)

Maybe, maybe not, don't really know how he is rated...but he doesn't deserve a vote over some of the greats that have left to be voted for. I'm pretty comfortable saying guys like Barkley, Malone, Erving (NBA), are ahead of him regardless of championship count.

Erving is my vote.

Baylor probably deserved the MVP in 62/63. He averaged a 34/14/5 on 45% and led the Lakers to 53 wins, even though West missed 27 games.

He also could very easily have been given the FMVP in the '62 Finals, after averaging a 41/18, including one of the greatest single games in playoff history in game 5 - 61 points, including 6 straight points with around a minute left that put L.A up by 3.

Julius Erving for me.

I do think there's guys like Baylor, Havlicek, Barkley, and Malone that have a case here, though.
