Get your facts straight. Moron.


Do you know the meaning of the word associate?

Now, we're talking about one of the greatest players to ever play the game of basketball. Who played 18 seasons with the Utah Jazz and 1 with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Still with me?

This list is talking about the 50 greatest players of all time. Now in said lists it is common sense to associate a basketball players name to the team which whom they built their legacy with.

For Example 99.99% of people when they see Michael Jordans name at the top associate him with Chicago Bulls. Not the wizards as you probably would.

My point is you create many fatuous threads and express often asinine opinions. And I would just like to plead with you to think and re-read your opinions before you post. Youre slowly becoming a nuisance to the people that actually know what theyre talking about.

You have to be kidding...

Tim Duncan't ranking at 9th and his ranking now at 10th by ISH likely means that his ranking at 9th was off. How could he have been ranked at 9th with only two titles?

I brought this book back in 2004, and before people bash the list.. he gives very in depth reasonings for all his rankings. This book made realize Shaq's greatness. Back in 2003, I was like some of the doubters here, still thinking Shaq wasn't top 10 or whatever, but after the book, I realized "damn shaq is on Magic/Bird level already". I started preaching that on here too, ISH now generally ranks Shaq high, but even like a year ago people were saying he was below Hakeem and shouldn't be top 10 and crap like that. Now although I don't agree with him as #1, I realized he was top 5 worthy after this book, and that was BEFORE Shaq won another ring and had another MVP-worth year in 05.

He is talking about what you would tink when you see the name Karl Malone. I think Utah. When people say Hakeem, I think the Rockets, not the Raptors, when people say Kareem, they think Lakers not Milwaukee, when people say Jordon, they thinik Chicago not Washington.

Shaq isn't so much of a stretch if you go with prime players. We're talking about the best players of all time. Best. I'm sure there are a lot of people who would consider prime Shaq the best individual player to ever play the game, simply because of complete dominance on both ends, and complete control of the game. You can say that for a lot of players, but again, a case can easily be made for Shaq.

Guy must be smoking pot while doing his little book. I don't think it was necessary to vacate Hakeem out of the top 10, let alone top 15.
