    Oscar Robertson. In 1961-1962 he completed a season in which he averaged a triple-double. And he pretty much dominated the rest of the decade. Talk about amazing.

    Michael Jordan. He kind of ruined his legacy for me slightly with his constant retiring and returning to the game, but none the less, he will always be the greatest.

    Larry Bird all the way. He was a tremendous all-around player and beyond his other outstanding skills, his passing ability was seemingly devine. He also made everyone around him better, and he was DA MAN in the clutch. ;)

    Right now, I'm actually surprised that nobody's voted for Dr. J or the Stilt thus far.

    As much as I favor former Indiana Pacer's coach Larry Bird, I'd have to say MJ.

    Has to be Jordan. Simply the most competitive, ruthless and relentless basketball player of all time.

    I think Bill Russell gets overlooked too much when people think of this category. All he did was lead his team to championships every year. (Well, 11 out of 13 years.) One of the best rebounders ever.

    Chamberland without a doubt. He is the most dominating player ever. The numbers speak for themselves (these are not exact): 100 points in a game (most ever), 50-some rebounds in a game (most ever), and undoubtedly Wilt had the most block shots ever, even though they didn't record blocks when Wilt played. And out of the top 70-some scoring performances of all time, Wilt had over 50 of the 70.

    Bill Russell was the greatest winner in Basketball history as well as a hero for his refusal to be a victim of the foolish racism that was sadly prevalent during that era in the Boston area. He played a major role in changing the way Boston fans looked at minority athletes.
