I did say give or take a few. That's five including Kareem. I didn't even include MVPs Wes Unseld, Gervin, Hayes and McAdoo.

50s
Mikan
Cousy

60s
Russell
Wilt
Pettit
Baylor
West
O

80s
Magic
Bird
Moses
Zeke

90s
Jordan
Hakeem
Malone
Barkley
Robinson
Stockton
Pippen
Drexler

Than you have players on the fence like Schayes, Arizin, Unseld, Hayes, McAdoo, Gervin, McHale, Ewing, Payton, Kidd, Nash.

someone's list of players better than Wade

You could just as easily substitute Steve Nash in place of Bob Cousy, as well. The two were nearly identical in the way they played the game.

Maybe you can explain to all of us just how Nash won back-to-back MVPs IN the "Wade-era?"

Is this thread a joke? This is wade easily. Wade is at worst a top 25 player ever while Cousy is borderline top 50 at best.

There's nothing impressive about Cousy unless you are just counting rings.

Because awards determined by voters should be given minimal weight. They are subjective and susceptible to various forms of bias.

Regarding MVPs, they are insignificant unless the player has a legitimate case for being considered the best player in the league that year. Therefore, LeBron/ Kobe /KD's MVPs are legit. Some others in recent years, not so much.

Nash averaged 15/11 in 2005 when Wade did 24/5/7. Nash averaged 19/11 in 2006, when Wade put up 27/6/7.

Team records in both years were comparable. Wade led his team in scoring both years. Nash didn't. We haven't even talked about defense. No person who is at all knowledgeable about basketball would claim Nash was better than even a 2nd or 3rd year Wade, or at any other point (and anyone who claims otherwise, is not at all knowledgeable about basketball).

Wasn't my point.

My point was the OP obviously ripping Cousy, when he could have just as easily ripped Nash instead.

at worst top 25? try 30-35.. i have wade around the 29 or 30 range, but top 25 is a HUGE stretch.

there are TOO many superstars with better careers and better basketball skills to be put aside for wade, who while great, is an injury riddled, lack-of-adjustment player.

Comparing Nash to Cousy is a huge joke, did you see that gif from Cousy, my 93 year old vietnam veteran neighbor can dribble better than that and he's missing a leg.

Nash has the ball on a string and it is an insult to compare him to Cousy.
