    Thank you all for tuning in to this two part series! I know that cliff hanger in part 1 got some of y’all ready to square up but I hope the end result was worth the wait.
    Also I just have to say, throughout the process of making this video I spent hours and hours watching old film, looking up obscure stats and facts that only us basketball fans would appreciate, and watched clips of legendary moments and after awhile I caught myself getting lost in these old videos, in amazement at how incredible these players are and how awesome this sport is. Because of y’all I get to watch, dissect and analyze basketball for a living and I CANNOT thank y’all enough. This is truly the best job in the world and I’m going to continue to create this stories and videos for us to watch, share and enjoy. I Appreciate all of you 💯

      I think you have a fair argument about Dirk but you do need to consider that when you say watching Michael play it was so obvious he was the best player on the court which is true but it was the same for Dirk for a very long time, Dirk literally is the greatest European player of all time and developed a shot that was so unstoppable when he played the heat Dirk looked like the best player on the floor. I feel like you really only considered that point with Jordan and not with players like Dirk, Shaq, or even Bird

    Dirk belongs in tier 4 AT LEAST. Carried his team to the finals where he single-handedly beat a team that, by your pyramid, had two top 20 players of all time. Not to mention he revolutionized his position, and along with Steph, completely changed how the game is played.

    Just found your channel, and your content is amazing. Thank you.

    Yeah, but Dirk was THE guy on his championship team that beat a loaded Heat team. KG had Pierce, Rondo, and Ray Allen, not Tyson Chandler and well-passed-their-primes Jason Kidd and Shawn Marion. And those Celtics teams were not able to beat those Heat teams. That's why Dirk should be higher than KG. And don't get me wrong, I love KG and i hail from MA, land of the Celtics. Dirk was just other worldly good in the playoffs during that finals run and almost single handedly beat Lebron and Wade. Given where they rank on this pyramid and the fact that the Jazz couldn't get over the hump against the Bulls, i'd be ok with swapping Dirk and Karl Malone. Even with mentioning how Dirk doesn't get all the love and respect he deserves, he still doesn't get it in my opinion. But either way, great job on the pyramid. I like this format over others because it's so difficult to rank 1 by 1 and i think you found a good balance in weighting the different criteria we have to make these judgements

    This pyramid is great but in my opinion its not fair to put Wilt in tier 3 an Scottie in tier 4. I know Scottie does not compare with someone like Shaq, Bird or Olajuwon but out of all players in tier 4 with 6 rings and as one of the best defenders of all time I think that Pippen deserves tier 3, and for Wilt being No.1 in total rebounds, 2 NBA championships, for scoring 100 points in 1 game I think Chamberlain really deserves tier 2 not among someone like Kobe or Magic, but among Kareem.

    Curry hasn't revolutionized the game. He's not even that efficient. The NBA has been trying to get players shoot more 3s for years.
    Curry is overrated his fg% isn't that good for somebody who some think he's the greatest shooter

  • REKT

    What about Pistol Pete Maravich

  • BigDave15
    BigDave15 Dia atrás

    I think it is a shame Maravich didn't make the pyramid. The ball handling rules were stricter and the 3 point shot rule didn't come into the league until his last season; despite this his ball handing was still devastating and he shot from 3 point range with a high rate of success. Add in his elite passing and that he created plays that flashy players like Magic, etc. used later, and able scoring from any range. On the flip side he never played on a great team and didn't win any championships, and injury/ill-health limited his longevity.
    Also, I don't think Chamberlin deserves to be lower than any of the tier 2 players. He was the full package, great size, athleticism, touch, scoring, rebounding, shot-blocking, assisting, the most dominant player in the history of the NBA.

    Now, after Kawhi beat the Warriors and played his best. He should be here if Curry is. In my opinion I’d Curry’s in tier 4, he should be there too.
    He’s a 2 time finals MVP, won 2 titles, one of the most well rounded players. Is amazing in any statistical category, winning mindset.
    Since you said that we should replace him with someone then I think that it would be a decision that would differ on who we talk to. Although I believe that it would be Jerry West. Many reasons but I think that his record in the finals is the biggest con. I know that it was because of the Bill Russell era but I just think that it was the 1960’s Warriors

    Drop Kobe to tier 3, he passes the eye test and accolades but not the shooting efficiency test(plus Shaq and Pau). Bring up Shaq and Bird to tier 2. Shaq was a more dominating force than kobe. Bird and Magic were rivals that are equal GOAT talent level. Drop Scottie(Jordan) and Wade(Lebron/Shaq) to tier 5. Karl Malone and Curry could go up to 3. KG and Barkley must be up in 4. Good Video!
