Yea this is def in order so I'll list my newest opinions on here cuz why not, and btw that fact that u have Stockton here concerns me lmfaooooo
Only thing I'd change would be the order in 7-10
I honestly like yours too. TBH I could've put Keem higher and I sort of leave off Steph in favour of Stockton because of Stockton's overall impact and steals/assist records. However, by the time Steph retires he'll almost certainly take that spot. Also KD's prevalence on super teams really makes him lose out on my lists.
ok Keem is high already but Reem has more rings/mvps and general longevity. Stockton is just plain and overrated, he played too long so he has those records by a large margin didnt really do much or win anything.
kd is just pure talent and unguardable and will end up being better den bird
I also do agree that KD is unguardable and realistically may become a more dominant scorer than Bird but he just somehow never really managed to properly carry a team. His supporting casts have been too stacked for too long, I mean this Nets team is:
That's freaking insane and maybe even better than the Warrior's god-squad.
Also, Bird was a magnificent passer, which KD never was so I just think a lot would have to happen for me to pass on Bird.
Yea I can see that but you can't forget Bird had HOF level teams too Parish, McHale, Dennis Johnson etc. But yea maybe less dominant players but KD is just a better pure talent. Aside from passing and maybe rebounding KD is just better faster at everything
Honestly, I think Stockton is underrated. He played for a long time simply because he was continuously competitive and had great longevity. Also I saw on a video by JxmyHighroller that he is 2nd all time for points generated in league history, behind Lebron and clearly beating out third. Also, he was a great defender without length or great athleticism, which means his IQ was insane.
I'd say that there a handful of 6-7 guards I'd take over him as a pure talent but his statistical gap is pretty impressive yea. I think he 100% had the tools to win but couldn't. but i guess mj be mj lol
