Default What currently active players would you say are top 10 at their position all time?

Are we witnessing some of the greatest players ever to set foot on an NBA court?

There's a few obvious names in Bryant (top 2 SG all time in most sensible fans eyes), Lebron (Can be considered the best SF ever) and Duncan(Best PF ever)

after you move past those 3 guaranteed names, you still have some obvious players in Dirk, Wade, and KG. but moving past them, who are some other players you consider top 10 all time at their respective positions?

Does CP3 already take that honor at this point in his career? Can Pierce sneak his way into this list? Has Gasol played well enough in his career that you consider him a top 10 forward(his position often changed due to injuries on the lakers, so maybe its hard to say)

Lebron james - 1 or 2 won't argue with anybody saying Bird or Lebron
Kevin Durant - I think he will end up top 10 maybe top 5
Kobe Bryant - 2 some will say west was better I prefer Bryant
Timmy D - #1 pf
Kg - personally have him 2
Nash/Paul - I think pretty safely top 10
Wade - 3 or 4 with west
Dirk - Top 10 easy.

If d rose can get back to mvp form he can be a top 10 PG as well.
I'm sure I missed some will update if I remember.

I honestly think Bosh deserves to be Top 10 PF.

He had amazing stats as a Raptor and pretty much improved every season until he went to MIA. In MIA he took a lesser role and even played out of position. Won two titles so far.

He has a career average of 20/9 on 50% and peaked out at 24/11 on 52% in Toronto just before going to MIA.

I can name...

Duncan
KG
Barkley
Malone
McHale
Dirk
Pettit
Rodman

I can't think of two more names I would put over Bosh right now.

Let me get this straight, one year of:

24/11/2 with a block, .6 steals on 51.8 shooting while taking 16.5 shots tops 25/10/3 with 2.5 blocks, 1 steal on 52.3 shooting while taking 53.3 shots.

Career wise, stats also tip in EB's favor, then throw in the fact that he was always one of the best defenders at the four.

sad how EB is forgotten due to how shitty the Clips were while being in the midst of a tough conference.

This is true.

People really have forgotten about him. I admit I did too.

Pissed me off how he just bailed, and was never a vocal leader, and is understandable how he is an oversight.

But I haven't seen many bigs be as good as he was on both sides of the court. Always was a top 5 guy on both sides imo for his position. Well, until he got hurt.

Did someone just say that Bosh is a top 10 PF of all time?

No order: Duncan, KG, Barkley, Hayes, Malone, Dirk, McHale, Rodman, Pettit should all be top 9 on every list, imo.

Then at 10 there's Lucas, Webber, Gasol, DeBusschere, Bosh... I don't see much separation between those guys. Probably a couple others I forgot.
