All time, MJ.

July 22, 2010  02:11 AM ET

Yours?

Personally speaking, I think that Derrick Rose's overall game has REALLY improved - right now, I'd say that it's Derrick Rose.

July 22, 2010  01:26 PM ET

Pippen. I loved Jordan but for some reason Pippen was always my favorite.

July 22, 2010  02:16 PM ET

MJ all time. Dirk right now.

July 22, 2010  03:25 PM ET

Currently: Kevin Durant
All Time: David Robinson

July 22, 2010  03:29 PM ET

Kevin Durant and D.Rose are my favorite. They're not front runners and their team mates love them they improved theirs game every years and they hustle hard on the court and they're willing to take the big shot with the game on the line. Remember I said it 1st DAAAAAAAAAAAAA BULLLLLLLLLLS RRRRRRRRRRRRR BBBBBBBBBBAaaaaaaaaaacK-wordLife

GOAT? IMO is Magic.
10 times the player MJ was, without the attitude plus he played every position.

Right now? Ray Allen.

July 22, 2010  05:48 PM ET

Tim Duncan: Classy big man who let's his game speak for itself.

Currently all 3 are still playing....I'm confused

Kobe Bryant. He is without a doubt the the fiercest competitor in the game today. No one since Michael has played the game with such tenacity and with the clock ticking in the fourth there is no one better. PERIOD!!

Larry Bird

Even though I'm not old enough to remember him playing, Bill Russel was the original great and was an all around amazing player. My favorite that I saw play is Michael Jordan.

Roni you are killin me with that nonsense man.

Current- Mike Bibby
All-time- toss up between, Sean Elliot, Steve Kerr, or The Dream

Robert "Big Shot Bob" Horry..dude doesnt disappoint. Always hittin the clutch shots no matter what team he was on. Has more titles than MJ, Kobe, Magic, Bird and Shaq..hahaha. This guy has straight up cold-blooded. I bet Vlade Divac feels real stupid by tippin the ball out to him. might as well jus score for them.

what nonsense?
I do think Magic was better than MJ.
he was IMO a MJ that could be as great scoring but also better passer who made his teamates better while versatile enough to play in any position.

Let me ask you something.
Let's make it like life is a game and NBA is like the game you buy on the store.
If you have a team where each player was good (grade from 1-10, let's give a 7) and you can add one more player to your roaster. What player will you get?
One that is a 10 but only on 1 position, or one that is 10 in one position and 9 in all others?
he could replace any of his teammates in case of injury, and more than simply take the game on his hands, he makes the whole team better.

Magic is the reason I started watching the NBA... he remains my GOAT.
IMO Jordan as the king of the media. he reshaped the NBA and the game. but that's it. he was simply a prolific scorer.

After his cheap shot on Nash, I don't think he should be in this conversation.
I liked him and it went just out the window. that play was as dirty as anything Bowen ever did. or more. it directly changed the outcome of the series.

Just because Magic played every position doesn't mean Jordan wasn't able to. I think Jordan could have played everything but C. Magic has like 3 inches on him. And to say Jordan was nothing but a prolific scorer is just not true, he was a much better defender then Magic was. I would listen to the argument of Magic over MJ but to say he was 10x the player is just ridiculous.
