I am a huge Ben Wallace fan (yes, a Bulls fan who likes Big Ben), but he doesn't really have much in the way of INDIVIDUAL talent, so I have to say that you nailed it the way that you listed them:

Walt Bellamy
Bob McAdoo
Jack Sikma
Alonzo Mourning
Ben Wallace

Wish I could rank Ben higher, but on an individual level, that is where he sits.

1.Walt Bellamy (One of the most spectacular big men in the histoire of the game, is sometimes lost in the shuffle when the greats are discussed)

2.Zo (One of the best two way players of his generation)

3.Bob McAdoo (Gets bonus points for winning the MVP as a member of the Braves/Clipper franchise)

4.Jack Sikma (One of the most underrated big men in the history of the game)

5.Ben Wallace (I take points off because I credit a lot his a lot of his defensive success to Rasheed Wallace and Tayshaun Prince)

Even when he won 2 of his DPOY awards when Sheed was in Portland and Prince was still in college?

^Blocks and steals do not make a great defender. His man defense has always been suspect, and DPOYs awards and the sportswriter awards don't hold much prestige for me anymore. They seem to glance at league leader lists and make their picks.

McAdoo is a huge pet favorite of mine. There's a stretch there from about 74 to 80 where the numbers are just insane.

Then Bells, then Zo and Sikma who I think are really close.


Throw Artis Gilmore in there, he's a really tough guy for me to rank. A huge defensive presence, and I think a better offensive player than Zo. I like him all time better than Bellamy even. But he's kind of a lost player. Those ABA numbers are hard to translate though.

sort of true. prince was a lightly used rookie in 03 (the second DPOY for ben) until the pistons were down 3-1 to orlando.

def ben is the worst of the 5, not sure whether to put zo at 4 or 2.
