Bill Russell... no second place.

Well, honorable mention to Larry Bird.

Probably about it.

These guys have alway stuck out to me as "killers". Guys who would stomp on their opponent if they were down. Not everyone does that.

Yeah Kobe never choked a 3-1 series lead. What a killer.

not one mention of Hakeem

do yall realize the type of mental fortitude it takes to have the performances he did on BOTH ENDS during Ramadan not to mention how he went through every great big of his era most being top 25 alltime players and outplayed all of them. Never got phased by pressure and always performed in the biggest games. Many players said they couldnt break him even Shaq and he would murk them and had supreme confidence in his ability against anyone. Theres a reason his team won as the underdog so many times.

Horry whos the only player whos played with prime Hakeem AND prime Duncan (has the most authority to speak on a comparison b/w the 2) said Hakeem was way better and alot of that had to do with how much more disciplined he was too

if u dont have Russell on ur list ur list is invalid. He went through the worst racism in Boston and kept winning

Russell
Hakeem
MJ
Bird
Kobe

Honorable mention to Jerry West, Zeke, AI

How can Kobe be mentally tough when he quit twice (2006 & 2011) and shrinks in clutch moments?
