NBA greatest 50 players of all-time 20 years later.
It has been 20 years since the NBA celebrated its 50th anniversary season by naming the 50 greatest players of all-time list. If that vote were held today and incorporated the subsequent 20 years that followed I think the list would look quite different. I would keep 35 holdovers from the original vote and make 15 changes.
Here are my subtractions :
Lenny Wilkens, Nate Thurmond, Wes Unseld, Earl Monroe, Dave Debusschere, James Worthy,
Bill Walton, Robert Parish, Dave Bing, Pete Maravich, Paul Arizin, Billy Cunningham, Bill Sharman,
Sam Jones, and Tiny Archibald.
Here are my additions :
LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Garnett, Dwyane Wade, Gary Payton,
Kevin Durant, Jason Kidd, Stephen Curry, Chris Paul, Allen Iverson, Steve Nash, Russell Westbrook and
Kevin McHale and Hal Greer would be my last two in from the original list that barely held on to their spots.
