The Basketball Thread

I think Steph Curry has made it into the top 10 of all time. Four titles and changing the way the game is played.

My top 10

1. Jordan
2. Russell
3. Kareem
4. LeBron
5. Magic
6. Bird
7. Wilt
8. Curry
9. Duncan
10. West

Or Oscar. Or The Logo. Or The Big O. I dunno. But I'll go with the Bill Simmons line that Oscar was traded, at the peak of his career, while the Lakers would NEVER have traded West. For anything.

I also don't know what to do with Durant. I don't watch as much NBA as I used to, but Durant is an effortless scorer and in many ways he's the template for where the NBA wants to go from here on out. Again, not a huge NBA watcher, but I've never seen him take over a game like a Bird or a Jordan, or even a Chris Paul or James Harden. I know lots of people think he's a top 15 type player, but I just don't see it.

Only omission I see and maybe it's not is Oscar. He always seems to be overlooked.
