    post your top 10 greatest nba players of all time. some criteria to consider, in no particular order:

    • accolades and championships
    • pure basketball skills
    • statistics
    • iconic moments, games, series, playoff runs
    • intangibles (basketball iq, toughness, clutch play)

    10 points will be awarded to your #1 player, 9 points to your #2 player, descending all the way down to 1 point to your #10 player. if a player happens to be absent from someone's list, that player will receive 0 points from said list and it will count towards their average

    after everybody's list is submitted, i will rank all the players by their average score and we will determine the Hoopla's top 10. this will only work with serious lists so anything deemed trolling will be ignored.


    @bksballer89 @Mecca @Shanemansj13 @UK Cowboy @trojanfan12 @tlance @DJ @LAD @Heatles84 @TurnUpTheHeat @Vyle203 @mick7-1961 @knowyourenemy @Hambombs @Nosferatu @TheRobotDevil @WiggyRuss @gordontrue @Shaqdaddy11 @LALakersboy24.7

    and anyone else that wants to participate.

    Entries will stop on Tuesday night at 12 am, have your entries in before that, I'll calculate the scores that night and Wednesday afternoon I'll post the Hoopla sports top 10 NBA players.

    I did this pretty quick, so I reserve the right to edit if I unintentionally left somebody out. Kobe was intentional. I have him at 11.

    1 - MJ
    2 - Kareem
    3 - Magic
    4 - Lebron
    5 - Shaq
    6 - Wilt
    7 - Bird
    8 - Duncan
    9 - Hakeem
    10 - Oscar

    This list is based off my head. My heart, I have Hakeem better than Shaq, Duncan and Wilt. If I was starting a team from scratch I take prime Hakeem over those guys.

    @Lavar Ball

    You know what would be interesting later, would be to create a top 10 list based purely off of basketball talent and skill. Accolades could not be factored into the decision of who was better. I think we'd see some drastically different lists up here.

    You can make your list based off of however you see fit, it says that in the OP.

    If you have skill > Accomplishments, then make your lists to mirror that.

    6. Tim Duncan
    7. Oscar Robertson
    8. Shaquille O'Neal
    9. Julius Erving
    10. Kevin Garnett

    I really wanted to find a way to fit either of the Malones on the list but I couldn't figure out who to knock off. I kind of wanted to leave Shaq off the list but he was just so dominant in his prime that I couldn't.

    Oh I thought it said in the OP that you had to consider the criteria when making the list. Either way I would have the same 10 players, just probably juggled a little differently, but nothing major.
