Are all guys I wouldn't think twice about.

In five years, probably Biff, Love & LMA as well

In five years Bosh will have 10+ all-star appearances and possibly 3-4 rings. I don't see how those guys you mentioned can pass him. Bosh will have a very impressive resume when his career is over.

I would say Pierce, Melo and KD could all be on the verge of being top 10,

Chris Paul I would say would perhaps be in the top 10, if not he would be very, very close at this stage.

Ray Allen perhaps a sneaky outsider?

Timmy D - #1 pf

Nash/Paul - I think pretty safely top 10
Wade - 3 or 4 with west
Dirk - Top 10 easy.

If d rose can get back to mvp form he can be a top 10 PG as well.
I'm sure I missed some will update if I remember.


who in their right mind would put a guy with 0mvps, 1 finals mvp in a losing series, and a 1 for 8 finals record over a guy with 1 mvp, 2 finals mvps, and a 5 for 7 finals record

especially when the guy with 1 mvp, 2 finals mvps, 5 rings has more career points, more records, more 1st team all nba's and played in 10 times better an era than the 60's

Duncan - GOAT PF
Dirk - 2nd GOAT PF
KG - 4th GOAT PF
Lebron - 2nd GOAT SF
Nash - GOAT PG
Durant - Top 10 GOAT SF

That's about it.

He has a career average of 20/9 on 50% and peaked out at 24/11 on 52% in Toronto just before going to MIA.

I can name...

Duncan
KG
Barkley
Malone
McHale
Dirk
Pettit
Rodman

I can't think of two more names I would put over Bosh right now.
Put down the crack pipe.

Centers
None

Power Forwards
Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett and Dirk Nowitzki

Small Forwards
LeBron James (Paul Pierce is debatable - it's between him and James Worthy for the 10th best SF spot)

Shooting Guards
Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade

Point Guards
Steve Nash (just - it's close between him and a few others for the 10th spot)

Chris Paul and Kevin Durant will probably crack their respective positional top 10s before the end of their careers.

So you think Nash is better than some of the following?

Magic Johnson
Oscar Robertson
Isiah Thomas
Bob Cousy
John Stockton
Walt Frazier
Jason Kidd

I can possibly agree with Nash over Kidd, but not the other 6 players. So Nash shouldn't be higher than 7th on anyone's list, in my opinion.

Okay, I admit I forgot about McAdoo.

I thought this was a list of the greatest PF's all time? Championships matter for the most part, unless you're Barkley or Malone.

Webber and Brand don't have the success Bosh has found with MIA, and in the long run, I don't doubt Bosh will be ahead of them.

As far as Pau, as a PF, Bosh was always considered better than him until he became a Laker. Even as a Laker, Pau was always more effective playing C than PF. That's where he found his success.

I agree, with the hardware and success, Bosh is definitely ahead of a lot of the PF's listed.

Duncan is a center. Why people can't understand this is beyond me. Calling him a power forward is no different than calling Wade a point guard.

Blame the stupid media for wanting to give Duncan his own special spot in history instead of lumping him together with all of the great centres (Wilt, KAJ, Russell, etc.).

Elton Brand had some of the best foot work I've ever seen from a power forward
