Very accurate list. I don't see why some of you scoff at LBJ being 2nd. He's a freaking beast. Wilt was truly a freak of nature, and MJ was very athletically gifted as well. Kobe isn't anywhere near as an athletic freak as these guys.

Dominique Wilkins should be way higher. He was the most athletic guy of his time, and he managed to keep his athleticism most of his career. Im not saying Lebron cant do the same but he shouldn't be as high until he proves himself for 10+ seasons.

nash is VERY athletic...but not in the sense when we discuss basketball players...first thing about ball players being athletic usually has to do with hops in my opinion..then speed and stuff

Wilt is the GOAT, not Michael Jordan. Most people that pick MJ never saw Wilt play.

to quote what Wilt said on TV in an interview addressing MJ: "Michael, when they change the rules on account of you, come talk to me". The 3 second lane used to be 3 feet wide. They widened it to keep Wilt away from the basket. Note, they outlawed the dunk in college because of Lew Alcindor (Kareem Abdul Jabbar). All that made him do was perfect his sky hook and jump shot. Kareem > MJ as well.

Wilt is 4th in all time triple doubles and would be higher if they recorded blocked shots in his day. They didn't do that until the season after he left the NBA. I saw Wilt block the same guy 3 times in succession, then do it to another player later in the same game.

Wilt only went to the bench in blowouts. He played all 48 minutes just about every game. What other player can say that?

He never fouled out of a game on personals. Once, he got DQ'd for two technicals.

It was not uncommon to see Wilt get over 30 rebounds in a game with the Lakers in 1971-72 while Lakers forward Happy Hairston was averaging over 12.

When he wanted to lead the league in assists, he did. Show me another center to do this.

Seasons the Celtics lost ECF when Lakers won the championship (7): 1953, 1954, 1972, 1980, 1982, 1988, 2002
In NBA history, the Lakers have finished better than the Celtics by a margin of 41-25!
