Jerry West. NBA logo wouldn't look as respectable as it looks.

Shaquille O'Neal. Shocked how you would actually skip this guy.

Lebron?! Maybe later but not now. You think if he retired right now, he'd be considered a great?

Agreed. Under the same premise, Kevin Garnett. These guys changed the way players are scouted and drafted.

Lebron had $100M in endorsements before ever playing a game. High schooler taken #1. First corporation to play basketball. He was the chosen one in 10th grade.

He's important.
