I guess if you take 4 years off (09-12) as a top 10 player its possible.

Also, you just can't ignore how lucky he has been to play under Pop for his entire career.

He's already top 10, but getting his 5th with another Fmvp would surely puts him in top 5 discussion with a very strong case.

Duncan's size might be the difference maker. It's be great for him to get that 5th ring. He's a legendary player who's had a fantastic career.

No disrespect to Cap, but if Duncan has a dominant finish to this run I might give him that edge.

I'd rank him 7 right below Kobe who I have at 6.

I'm not sure but I don't see how it could be Kareem. Kareem's 3rd on my list behind Jordan and Russell. Not only does he have an extremely high peak, but his longevity is only rivaled by Kobe. Hard for me to imagine any logical argument that could be made for Kareem not being in anyone's top 6.

Probably Bird, though.
