nba rankings


ESPN’s NBA Rank from 1 to 10

1. Michael Jordan
2. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
3. LeBron James
4. Magic Johnson
5. Wilt Chamberlain
6. Larry Bird
7. Bill Russell
8. Tim Duncan
9. Shaquille O’Neal
10. Hakeem Olajuwon


Well, well, well, would you look at this list. LeBron number 3, ahead of Magic, Wilt, Russell…? That’s a scandal! 

On the other hand, Kareem finally getting the recognition he deserves. One of the most overlooked all-time greats.

Many disagreements here, but hey, they got number 1 and 2 right. The rest is a mess, but that’s ESPN for you…
