Daddy’s Hangout Top 10 NBA Players of All-Time


I’ve been asked about my top 5 NBA players of all-time ever since Lebron James came out and said that when he’s finished he’ll be on the Mt. Rushmore of basketball players when he’s finished beside Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Oscar Robertson. I’ll be honest, I can’t just list 5 guys who I think is worthy of being the top 5 players ever. So I’ll try to do a top 10 of all-time and do I think Lebron James is worthy of being considered, but let’s make it clear and that he could be one of the top 5 players ever when he’s finished.
