    Thank you all for tuning in to this two part series! I know that cliff hanger in part 1 got some of y’all ready to square up but I hope the end result was worth the wait.
    Also I just have to say, throughout the process of making this video I spent hours and hours watching old film, looking up obscure stats and facts that only us basketball fans would appreciate, and watched clips of legendary moments and after awhile I caught myself getting lost in these old videos, in amazement at how incredible these players are and how awesome this sport is. Because of y’all I get to watch, dissect and analyze basketball for a living and I CANNOT thank y’all enough. This is truly the best job in the world and I’m going to continue to create this stories and videos for us to watch, share and enjoy. I Appreciate all of you 💯

      Where would you rank Kawhi Leonard? 28yrs 2 titles and 2 MVPs and a defense of the year. I would say he is a tier 5 or 4. What is your opinion.

      chamberlain should take kobe's spot, russell should also be moved to tier 2 and lebron should be moved to tier 1. wade, dirk and duncan should all be on the same tier. wilt bird and russell should all be on the same tier with magic, and abdul-jabbar

    Don’t confuse difficult shot making (Kobe) with being a GOAT candidate. His career achievements and stats aren’t tier 2 quality. His later championship teams were stacked. And the west was weaker than people realise: Utah? Houston? Denver? Who did he beat in the finals? Weaker Magic and Celtics teams....

  • B WorM

    You talk about the era of only 8 teams as being a negative to the great of that era. That just means that the entire basketball talent in the world was on 8 teams, not 30.
    Which should make it harder to stand out, but Wilt just made it look easy.

    Steph and AI shouldn't be in this list TBH. KD should be in Tier 5, Duncan should be higher than Shaq and LeBron, Moses also should be higher than Malone.

    Kawhi Leonard at that time, had 1 ring and now has 2. Ofc, at that time he only had 1 ring. None the less, he had one ring. He clamped up Lebron James and was a nobody until he actually clamped up Lebron James.

  • PA Shapiro

    I'm with the Dirk people. Dirk was the *obvious* best player on a championship team. You can't say that about KG, Pippen, Malone, Stockton, Dr. J, or D. Wade. He's also the best shooter over 7 foot ever. Put him in the Dirk tier at 4.5

  • Aleks Jeff

    I think you did a fantastic job with the pyramid and agree with most of your picks. Although I gotta say after the performance we saw from Kawhi this past playoffs, I think he certainly deserves to be in at least tier 4, maybe even tier 3.

  • Yo its your boy genius CJ

    I mean this is pretty much one of the best list. I feel that this is mostly right and Dirk was great but he just needed more accolades.

  • A.J. Sloan
    A.J. Sloan Day ago

    I think the pyramid is quite accurate it’s hard to disagree with however I would make two changes personally and that will be to remove Allen Iverson for Chauncey Billups - I know tonnes of fans would laugh but because AI has more hardware but Billups has a ring and with that ring a finals MVP and that ring was against a similar Lakers team AI lost to. Albeit that Lakers team was way different by the time Billups played them but a ring nonetheless. Furthermore years down the line and a trade happened where Detroit trades Billups to the Nuggets for AI and few others. Billups with Melo takes the Nuggets to the WCF which AI could not do. Albeit AI was ageing but Billups came into the league only one or two seasons after. Just my opinion but I have him as a better leader/captain than AI. The next move I would make is placing Dirk in Tier 4 for Dr J. Dirk with a ring and a finals MVP to his name it’s hard to beat that. Played all seasons with the Mavs and gave them a chip emerging from the WC something KG was not able to do. Other than that would leave it the same. Would love to hear your feedback on these changes? Cheers

  • fairalways

    So move Russell down, Dr. J up. Dr. J's impact, had you lived through it, far eclipsed Russell's defense and rings. If you went back in time and asked any kid in the 70s who they wanted to be in the NBA, it was Dr. J. No comparison from an impact perspective. And discounting the ABA is a bush-league mistake.
    Move Magic down to Bird's level. If you don't, you didn't live back then and feel how evenly matched they were. And although Magic had his amazing "gimme the ball and get outa the way" moments, Bird had more. Only Jordan was more clutch (although Reggie Miller was up there. but not the player. Bird was the player). PS BOTH played "only" 13 seasons. (well, there was 1996 for Magic, but that ...... meh.)
    Move Chamberlain up a level. Done. As someone whom felt the "impact" of players in real time, I am helping you out.

    • Aleks Jeff
      Aleks Jeff Day ago

      Wilt really should be a level up, he was just so dominant and many stats weren't recorded.

  • fairalways
    fairalways 2 days ago

    Dr. J tier 3 not 4. Definitely when you put Russell there. I guess when you didn't see him play, that's what you do. Also, Magic seems to always be rated higher than Bird. I don't get that. You are a kid, so you don't have the perspective. Also, your delay on Kobe being tier 2 shows your youth. Fine with everything else.
