Default Favorite players of all time list ....

Now, this is a top 10 list, BUT you can only list players you've seen play. So for e.g. I can't list Oscar Robertson because I've only watched a few games of his but never for most of his career.

I think it'd be interesting seeing how we have a wide range of ages here.

So, mine are:

10. John Stockton
9. Gary Payton
8. Ray Allen
7. Isiah Thomas
6. Michael Jordan
5. Tim Duncan
4. Toni Kukoc
3. Karl Malone
2. Drazen Petrovic
1. Kevin Garnett

Radja was an underrated player. He was another guy I idolized as a kid.

The way they played with the basketball and taunted opponents at times was just a treat to watch.

Another underrated player would be Bodiroga. Another guy I enjoyed watching.

More of an eurotype player i don't know in the NBA. He played a lot in Italy and was great. The ex_Yugoslavia allways produced some great players also in a time when non american players couldn't play in the NBA. I mean Dalipagic or Kicanovic for sure were at that level imo and so others

I loved Starks, but the greats don't go 2 for 18 in Game 7.

I wouldn't put him on my top 10 favourites because he went 2 for 18 in game 7.
