I didnt add Lebron,its still way too soon.
Before i'd put him,id have to put Shaq,but neither are in the top 5 in my opinion,at least not yet.

Where's Oscar Robertson? Where's Olajuwon (one of only four all-time with a quadruple double)?


I'd at least switch out Bird for Robertson since you said "all-around". Also, I'm not sure Kobe belongs in the best "all-round" category, he may be in the "most dominant scorer" category, but not "all-around". Lebron James is way more complete than Kobe.

Peace

Chamberlain
Magic
Oscar
Jordan
Bird

Lebron's still too new. Let's see him win something. Shaq? He's just big enough to butt everyone else out of the way. And not only can't hit a free throw, but doesn't seem to care that he can't hit a free throw.

Chamberlain wasn't a great free throw shooter either, but how many people know he actually led the league in assists one year? Shaq couldn't carry Wilt's towel.

1.Jordan

2.Wilt

3.Oscar Robertson

4. Bill Russell

5. Larry Bird (even though I think Kareem probably deserve this spot, I'm a huge Bird fan)

Kobe and Lebron are still works in progress.

I guess they gave Lebron a rebound when it should have gone to Wallace. Here's the entire article.

Here's some to think on.

Dennis Johnson.
Underrated offensive player, and a shutdown defender in his day. Think Gary Payton, only maybe a better defender.

Speaking of...

Gary Payton.
Great defender and a very good offensive player.

Scottie Pippen.
Jordan's underrated running mate. If a player who got the kind of press he got can be called underrated...personally, I think he might have been a better all around player than Jordan.

Akeem Olojuwan.
Best all around center since Wilt.

Wilt Chamberlain.
Best player ever...with no apologies at all to Micheal Jordan.

Good choices OT. It pains me to think that Oscar is out of the top 5 but there's always a cut-off. And you might say that Oscar was week in rebounding but that was more due to floor spacing than ability. Good choices but you made it hard to challenge.

To the folks that posted big men, consider that they don't have ball handling skills and that kills them for "all around". A guy like Bill Russel had everything else but no ball handling. Then you could take the best ball handler/shooter, Pistol Pete, and he wasn't much on rebounding. That "all around" thins the herd.
