He put Magic at 4 fwiw. Everybody is entitled to his own opinion (and declining to have a top 3, 4, 10, or whatever is an option as well).

9. LeBron
10. Hakeem
11. Oscar
12. Dr J
13. Kobe

Damn, Kobe's stock is failing fast. Two months ago he was still a TOP 10 player, now he is on his way out of the TOP 15

Default Re: LeBron says Dr J is TOP 3 All Time

Players opinions on this doesn't matter. They're being paid and watched for their physical attributes. Nobody cares about what they think although Lebron is one of the smarter players in the NBA. I don't think he has that much background or knowledge on the history of the game though.

I do feel dr j is underrated due to a significant portion of his career being in the ABA, however top 3 is a stretch

Kobe's peak is top 8 all time at the least.

When looking at a players peak together with their resume, it's hard to leave Kobe Bryant out of the top 10, irrespective of how much you dislike him.

Good to know the best player in the game, lacks knowledge of the history of the game...

Dr J should not be in anyones top 10 let alone top 3 :

Dont know what criteria he went after if its his favorite players of all time or if its his opinion on most talented/skilled players of all time or a combination of both.... but in terms of accolades that top 3 doesnt make sense, except for MJ ofcourse...

Meh, opinions.

If it were up to me, my personal top five would be: MJ, LeBron, Bird, Kobe, Shaq

No agendas. Kobe mimicked MJ to greatness, believes him to be GOAT. LeBron idolized MJ, he inspired him to greatness. Bird at his peak was better than Magic, shame his prime and career got cut short due to injury. And Kobe hates Shaq and would never give him his props for basically being a better version of Wilt in the modern era.

Meaning he was, even if egotistical and childish, was a winner when he tried and could be a great teammate unlike Wilt.

All players put stamps on both sides of the ball, too. Bird, an often underrated defender and great rebounder. Made everyone better, like Magic, without the ball constantly in his hand ... and was obviously a superior scorer if needed.

My white boy Jerry West, personally from everything I've gathered would be an honorable mention along with Magic. Both just missing the top five.

MJ, Shaq, LeBron, Bird, Kobe

Then: Hakeem, West, and Magic

These guys to me are the greatest collection of individual talents. Everything I've read, studied. The most interesting group, too.

Honestly speaking, outside of Michael Jordan and LeBron James at the very the top, you could be pick out:

Kareem
Shaquille
Bird
Bryant
Magic
Duncan
Wilt
Russell
Hakeem

blindfolded and you would still be right.


Then the Jerry West, Dr J, Oscar Robertson and Kevin Garnetts to round out the top 15
