    Jordan, maybe the easiest choice I've ever made in a tournament here.

    Oddly, for me, the lasting image of Jordan is not a dunk or game winning shot, but his block of Karl Malone to secure his 6th, and final title. He was maybe the the best defensive player in the history of the game, imo, a fact that is over-looked far too often.

    thank you, yankee, for choosing Bird up there!

    Jordan, obviously.

    Easy pick. Clyde was a very good player, but not an all-time great. Bird, sadly, gets overlooked far too often these days when people have these kinds of discussions. At his peak, an incredible all-around player. Usually near the top of every statistical category in the league, whether points, rebounds, assists, steals, you name it. And as clutch as a player can be, Jordan is the only player in his class in that respect.

    yeah, Bird is my 2nd favourite player of all time, behind Jordan.

    Surely you could find a better picture of LeBron than that. I know Inty could :p

    LeBron James, in a close one.

    Yeah, Shaq all the way

    (Honestly, this isn't a vote against you Inty, but Shaq was my favourite plaer growing up, and I haven't really seen much of LeBron so it's not much of a contest in my mind)

    LeBron. I assume he's got more than a 50-50 chance of hitting a free throw.
