if mj can be in the top ten, why can't kobe? i really don't see anything that necessarily distinguishes their individual greatness when it's said and done. but this is coming from an avid MJ hater to kobe hater.
i don't think shaq belongs in the top ten. in his own generation he arguably behind the likes of both hakeem and robinson at his own position.
i'd take stockton ten times out of ten times of zeke, but i don't have any issues saying that zeke was the superior player between the two of them.
i don't have lists, just comments. i never really believed in judging players from different generations, especially when the league wasn't nearly as advanced as it is today.
