Dwight Howard and Wilt Chamberlain are close calls for me. However, I feel Howard has all the traits of Wilt while being appearing to be a tad "thicker" than Wilt so I give him the advantage.

Lew Alcindor had great touch but athletically I don't think he's in the same grouping as Dwight or Wilt.

I can see that but watch that karate movie with Kareem and Bruce Lee fighting...That is a freakin display of balance and athletism...

The dunking is a measure of creativity and the 3-ball is a skill so by my definition it wouldn't be an accurate measure of basketball talent.

This is why I started my comment by explaining my opinion on basketball talent. Each of us has a different definition of "basketball talent".

I wouldn't say top 3 all time, but I would say the best in the league RIGHT NOW.
