Default Rank these wing players?

How would you rank these 5 players, who's better? Tried to get some players who played the same position. All were/are wings and mainly played the 2/3 spots.


-Alex English
-Dominique Wilkins
-Chris Mullin
-Grant Hill
-Tracy McGrady

Its kinda hard to compare Grant Hill and T-mac with guys like Alex English, Nique and Chris Mullin. Because their still playing, and those guys are done and in the hall of Fame. Not to mention nonte of their games are really all that similiar. Mullin was a shooter/post-up. Alex English was a bigger version of Rip hamilton, not in terms of his game but his energy(game wise he's probably more like a Paul pierce, or maybe a less athletic Melo) that dude seemed to be able to run endlessly. I'll give it a shot.

Nique(Nique out of all these guys was the most dominant scorer.)
Alex english
T-mac
Mullin
Grant(he has to come in last because due to bad luck he'll never fulfill the promise he started with)

1. grant hill
2.nique
3. english
4.t-mac
(mullen was a great shooter with zero athletic ability)

Mannn all those players are completely different its a challenge to rank them...

Nique
--------------
English
Tmac
--------------
--------------
Hill
Mullin

There is no doubt in my mind that Grant would be #1 on this list if it wasnt for all the injuries...

In their prime I would say

1. T-Mac
2. Grant Hill
3. Mullin
4. English
5. Wilkins

but to be honest I have really not much knowledge on Mullin besides he was a legit three point threat and was part of the original run tMc, and for Nique I only knew him as a great dunker, and English as a great scorer.

Ranked by best in their prime:

1. Grant Hill
2. Nique
3. McGrady
4. Alex English
5. Chris Mullin

T-Mac and English are very close to each other and imo could be interchanged.

Nique (More than just a dunker...an absolute force)
English (Elite scorer, would go nuts in a handcheckless NBA.)
Mullin (Underrated passer, 3 pointers are a part of his game...not his whole game)
TMac (Great player...just can't be counted on because of injuries.)
Hill (You don't get points for what could have been.)

that looks about right. might move tmac over mullin just on the strength of his 03 season which was so monsterous, but basically there's something to be said for actually being on the court when your team needs you.

Default Re: Rank these wing players?

- Alex English (I wouldn't say Nique was really much more of a dominant scorer, Alex had a much better FG% and in his first four season's his scoring was a little low which pulled down his career SPG stats, but he was a great player, and amazing shooter)

- Dominique Wilkins, super athletic!! (Maybe a tie with English, his downside was average outside shooting, poor shot selection, and not the greatest team player)

- Chris Mullen not very athletic, wouldn't have been as good on a team where he was the only star and the defense focused on him all night, like they have done to Tmac, still his skills and competitiveness puts him up the ladder (smart, clutch, pure shooter)

- Tracy McGrady athletic, nice shooter (Great player, but not quite on par with the 3 above him, injuries have hampered his career a bit)

- Grant Hill nice player, couldn't ever pull it together long enough to prove himself to be consistent due to him always rehabbing (injuries, and was slightly over-rated in his prime)

Sad thing is, if he was healthy he could have probably been better then all of them.
