The Barkley story is more about him getting the most first place votes, but being left off the ballot completely by several writers due to a bias against him. That's why people say he was robbed. Personally, I think Jordan was the most valuable by that point.

This is the reason why I abhor when people just line up total achievements won, and don't put context to it (speaking about Pauk).

Jordan taking MVPs away from Bird and Magic is far more impressive than James taking MVPs away from 21 year old Durant.

Maybe. I have an obligation to put him over Barkley, even tho Barkley was a better player at his best and did so in a much better era...and he simply did more, stepped up in every big situation, but simply didn't win...and, I guess, didn't get close enough to the promised land as much as he needed to. But I'd take Barkley over most of the guys I'm supposed to put on the list.

Nice to see West up there.

Well yeah lol. No original thinking can leave Jordan off the list.


Looking back at his career and thinking back to all the old games I've seen...I'm trying too hard to pick, when the Logo is right there.

Easily better? Nah. James is maybe better than that version, but not easily.
