    You people really annoy me, its almost as if your position is fueled by an over reaction to cancerous kobe fans, but that's not his fault. Y'all need to give him the respect he deserves he's definitely top 10 all time, personally his my third but that also because I like him as a player but that just opinion. I saw this video the other day and it sums my position up really well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYhEB2nfnSg

    Everyone after 60 you can't even make a case for. At least you can argue the other ones but youd end up being wrong anyway

    Tony/Manu? Lmao

    0

    Tony and manu were great players but they didn't have the longevity of Kobe. I mean i know by the end of his career he was just throwing up shots and making less than half of them but he was still a arguable top 10 NBA player

    Nigga what Tony and Manu 100% top 60 of all time u high

    lets see
    russell not top 10
    duncan way too high
    hakeem way too low
    shaq too high
    bird wayyy too low

    0

    russell not top 10 = mental illness

    0

    no? he won his rings with several other hall of famers. wilt was the best center of that era and keem and maybe shaq are better too (not mentioning kareem since u put him rightfully above)

    0

    Several other hall of famers? Nigga 70% of those ppl only made the HOF bcz they played with him. Wilt played with more HOFers than Russell did

    0

    wilt was a much more dominant player. hakeem is criminally underrated. shaq is the only guy i might concede is worse.

    0

    Hakeem is underrated? He lost in the first round more than Russell has lost in the playoffs

    0

    statistics show hakeem is one of the best all time, and he didnt have a ton of help with the rockets. incredible both sides of the ball in a tougher era than rusell. im not using the bullshit "short white guys" argument but the 90s was a tougher league comp-wise

    0

    Nobody gets more career passes than Hakeem. 9 first round playoff exits, 1 missed playoffs in his prime, which include 3 sweeps, 6 blowouts, couldn't make the All-NBA first team in his prime during the ages of 27, 28, 29, couldn't win an MVP or ring until MJ retired.

    Hakeem couldn't win until MJ retired lmao. Nowhere near a GOAT candidate.

    0

    stats say otherwise

    0

    The Rockets in Hakeems prime were barely a 500 team while having a good team around him?

    0

    hakeem didn't play in an 8 team league like billy and mj didnt play in the west. when mj left, hakeem's finals path was no easier. on an individual level i will take hakeem over russell any day. accomplishment wise its obviously bill

    3

    The East in that era was better than the West until like 1996 lol. Hakeem was literally bitched every year until MJ retired. By everyone. In his best playoff series statistically he got swept. He padded stats and got lucky that MJ decided to play basetball.

    Here's a breakdown of his career:

    84-85. Hakeem's rookie season. 12th. And behind players like Terry Cummins, Calvin Natt, and even teammate Ralph Sampson.



    85-86. Jumps to 4th, but doesn't receive even ONE first-place vote.

    86-87. 7th. Behind players like McHale and Wilkins, and barely ahead of Fat Lever. not ONE first-place vote.

    87-88. Again 7th and behind Barkley and Drexler (two future teammates) as well as Wilkins. Not ONE first-place vote, and again, barely edges out Fat Lever.

    88-89. 5th. Behind Ewing. Oh, and for the first time...he finally gets first place votes...TWO of them to be exact.

    89-90. Back to 7th, and behind K Malone, Ewing, Robinson, and barely ahead of Tom Chambers. And ONE first-place vote. In his first six seasons...a TOTAL of THREE first-place votes.

    90-91. 18th. Granted, he only played in 56 games. Still, Larry Bird only played in 45, and finished 9th. Hell, Kenny Smith finished higher in the voting.

    91-92. This is really embarrassing. Not even in the top 20. in a season in which he played 70 games. The list of players who actually received votes is littered with merely good, and certainly not great, players.

    92-93. SECOND. A miracle. And yet, still miles behind Barkley. And the reality was, voters were getting bored with MJ, who was still the best player in the league.

    93-94. FIRST. The ONLY time in his 18 season career that he won MVP. But including context here, MJ was playing bassebal. And even in a league without MJ, he wasn't close to being unanimous, either. 66 first-place votes out of 101 possible.

    94-95. 5th. And behind Robinson, O'Neal (who would outplay in the Finals), Ewing, and Malone. Oh, and just ONE first-place vote.

    95-96. FOURTH. This would be the last time he would finish in the Top-FOUR...a TOTAL of FOUR times, BTW. Oh, and guess what? ONE first-place vote. Just a year after pounding Robinson in the playoffs, he AGAIN, finished behind him. (Of course, aside from four games of the '95 WCF's, the rest of their 44 career H2H's were basically a wash, except that D-Rob's teams won 70% of the time.)
    96-97. 7th. And this is his last quality season. And, again, ZERO first-place votes.
    97-98. Nowhere to be found.
    98-99. 13th.
    99-00. Nowhere to be found.
    00-01. Zippo.
    01-02. Nada.

    You're claming that somehow Hakeem is a Top 5 player all-time while he wasn't even considered a Top-4 player in the league in 14 of his 18 seasons (and just barely with two 4th place finishes.)


    He wasn't making it to/past the first round 3/4 of his entire career. I just don't see what makes Hakeem anything more than a top-10 player All-Time, top-7 at absolute best. Hakeem's "impact" is subjective; the results are real. Nobody that wasn't making to/past the first round 3/4's of their careers a top 7 player, let alone top 5.

    can we like and reply w asap for the commitment behind this comment

    0

    Csn't agree to that. Some of the teams that made the Finals from the West were far inferior to Hakeem's Rockets. That said, you also have to criticise Robinson the same way, even Malone/Stockton to an extent as well.

    0

    are you trying to argue Hakeem > MJ on april fools?

    0

    no hakeem > bill russell and unironically

    0

    Hakeem, Robinson, Ewing all had teams similarly built, yet Hakeem's the only won that gets a pass for having a weak team.

    0

    Fuck you mean they all do. But only Hakeem won a championship with said weak team.
