There's no way Duncan can be considered above Kareem. Never on the same level of dominance when both were at the same age. I won't take him over Shaq or Hakeem, either, but Kareem makes it even less legit.

I would take Kareem over all others...

His stats speak for themselves.

Most dominate shot in the history of basketball. The unstoppable Skyhook.
nice to know coming down to crunch time in a tight game that you had a player who was going to get a high percentage shot off with no chance of opposing defences being able to defend it.

Bill Rusell
Kareem Abdul Jabbar

period.

Olajuwan would have been great if his offence was a little better... he was a great specimen for a Center though... big man criteria no1 = DEFENCE!

Hakeem with only 2 titles is not in the same discussion as Kareem with 6, Duncan with 4, and Shaq with 4. Also, Kareem's 6 titles were with how many HOFs, AND MAGIC TO BOOT? 4-5? Shaq's wingmen- KOBE AND WADE, AND PENNY? Duncan's sole HOF- DRob averaging 16 and 8 in 99, and 8 and 7 2003?

Tim Duncan's 4 titles are greater than Kareem and Shaq's, because he accomplished more (literally than Shaq) with so much less. The list should read:
1. Russell (11 titles as the main guy! 22.5rpg)
2. Chamberlain
3. Duncan
4. Shaq
5. Kareem
