      Before we start let me clarify that when I say great, I mean which players are the most valuable to a team. I also know there will be A LOT of disagreement.

I also recommend getting the book, Who’s Better, Who’s Best in Basketball by Elliot Kalb. That book will do a lot of explaining. You might also see that a lot of players who play today are not in the list. This is because they are too young to be judged. An example would be Kevin Durant. So without further or do I present you with,
