#37 - Kevin Garnett or “the Big Ticket“. KG has been doing his thing since 1995 and a season latter has been on every all-star team since. He’s also one of the best defenders making countless All-D Team squads. He is mister do-it-all for the Minnesota Timberwolves franchise as he took them to their first playoff births in the late 90’s and the T-Wolves peaked as a team in the early part of this decade.

I see Dolph Schayes got a few votes. He's always rated really high on these lists, but I've never understood why. All I saw in him was a low percentage(under 40% for a big guy) set shooter(not even a jump shooter), with average post-skills, who somehow got things done. I guess he belongs around here(or even higher) considering Mikan was top 20, but I'd rather vote for a guy like Thurmond or McAdoo, who dominated like a traditional big man should.

My vote goes to Bob McAdoo. It was a toss-up between Thurmond and McAdoo, but I'll take McAdoo for his vastly superior offensive game compared to Thurmond.

-Did you most most people shot right at or below 40% in his era?
-Did you know a lot of folks shot set shots back in the 1950's (besids a few like PaulArizin and Joe Fulks)?
-He was also a top 5 scorer and rebounder for his era as he played against both the Mikan and Russell/Wilt era.


Still with thoses (so called flaws) he made 12 straight All-Star games and 12 straight All-NBA teams. He also took his team the Syracuse Nationals to the championship in 1955.


My vote goes for DOLPH SCHAYES

Why Steve Nash so high?


What about the other MVP's left who also won titles, in Wes Unseld and Bob McAdoo?

KG is already in with 1 MVP and no titles so I don't think it's that bad to have Nash at this spot.
