I personally feel that there are two general ways to play b-ball.
A)Being a dominant individual performer. Most often the results of this style of play are seen by looking at a player's individual stats.
B)Playing the game in a way where your ultimate objective is to improve your teammates' quality of play. Many times the results of this can be seen more by looking at a player's teammates' stats and performances.

So here is my list based upon those two styles of play (in no particular order):

A) Wilt, Kareem, MJ and maybe a prime Dr.J
B) Magic and Russell

IMO Oscar Robertson and Larry Bird tend to combine the two styles.

Michael Jordan with Andrei Kirilenko not far behind.

I like Chris Webber too. Greatest versatile player of all-time.

Michael Jordan: For what he did for the game of basketball. He made it a global industry. Besides that, it was because he knew the game of basketball better than anyone and combined his skill with his crazy athleticism instead of just relying on his athleticism alone. Forget his numbers, trophy's and records. His mental aspect of basketball is what I respect him for most.

As an individual basketball player the only choice is Wilt. He did absolutely everything u can ask a single basketball player (score, defend, assist, rebound, shoot high %s)

But if you like to go with the whole winning thing it's Bill Russell because not only did he win 11 rings he did everything to win those rings. Whatever was needed he always go it done. There was never an excuse (other than the 1 game 7 he missed because of injury) he just always did what was needed to win and at the end of the day that's what it's all about.

Sorry but Jordan isn't the greatest.

The only criteria that puts Jordan #1 is endorsements and popularity.

If you disagree, that is your choice, but please have a well-defined reason as to why Jordan is the best ever. As you will see, for Jordan, there is no standard. His claim to the best ever is based on popularity, media-hype, and endorsements, with a few weak arguments thrown in for good measure.

Michael Jordan.

G.O.A.T

You can argue this kareem, wilt and other top centers were better than him though. Because each person dominated the game in a different fashion.
