1. Wilt Chamberlain
2. Bill Russell
3. Kareem-Abdul Jabbar

The fourth is a very hard pick.

But I would have to go with Michael Jordan, I can not deny his greatness, but he would be a distant fourth.

To prove my point..

1. Wilt Chamberlain, greatest player to have ever played in the NBA
2. Bill Russell, greatest champion in NBA history, 11 titles.
3. Kareem-Abdul Jabbar, all-time leading scored, 3rd in rebounds, 6 MVP's

Do you still feel the same since Wilt was gay?

Did it give him a advantage on the court...Does that mean that the 20,00 women was a lie.
I never heard he was gay...but I don't care about a persons sexuality choices.

You don't? You insist being gay is a conscious choice....

You choose who you want to have sex with...

Just like in the other thread, what medical evidence can you provide to prove that you are born gay...there is none that is accepted as medical fact, that I know of...Please enlighten us or shut up.

So to be politically correct, you call that person a bigot...

I was born to smoke weed, fart in public, and their is no medical evidence to back that up, but if you do not agree with me on this, you are a bigot. That is what you are saying.

Bill Russell walked up to LeBron James at the All-Star game and told him this.

I won back to back High School Championships, back to back College Championships, a NBA Championship as a Rookie, a NBA Championship in my last season, and 9 NBA Championships in between. I a glad that you left me off you Mount Rushmore, cause it is a team sport.

Lebron James was speechless...

I'm surprised BR didn't mention his '56 Olympic Gold Medal as well.

I would take Kareem-Abdul Jabbar over Michael Jordan 100 out of 100 times.

These three can not be disputed...unless your Mount Rushmore is playdough...lol

Well let me see.... Russell beat Wilt most times they met in the playoffs... Chew on that for a minute. Wilt had insane numbers in the regular season but Jordan has a higher points per game in the playoffs(when it matters) than him... As for Kareem, he is a great basketball player in his own right but lets be honest here, he is in your list because he scored the most points ever. He was not always the best player on his own team and it took him a whopping 20 years in the NBA to be the top scorer. Jordan would easily top him if he had not retired in '94 or if he had played that long.... Kareem over Jordan.... Looool!!

Or the 6-7 HOF'er he had on his team.

I wonder how many Championships MJ or LeBron could win with a HOF'er as their teams 5'th or 6'th best player?

You are obviously are not a student of the game...the top EIGHT players on the Bill Russell led Boston Celtics are all Hall of Famers...Two Wilt Chamberlain's might not have beaten the Celtics in those days.

There is no scenario that Chamberlain, Russell, Abdul-Jabbar are not on the Mount Rushmore of the greatest NBA players of all time...

They dominated the game on both ends of the floor, something James, Jordan, Bird, or Magic not could not do, they are not in the same league.

Chamberlain was so dominate on both end, that there was no less than ten rule changes made, to make the game competitive...Come back when you have an idea of what you are talking about.
