With the NBA season about to conclude, I thought this might be a fun thread to start.
If the list of the 50 greatest players in NBA history were reconfigured today, which players would you remove (from the list compiled 17 years ago) and which would you add?
I would immediately add the following: Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Lebron James, Jason Kidd, and Steve Nash.
Borderline additions (for me): Paul Pierce, Dirk Nowitzki, Dwayne Wade, and Allen Iverson.
Determining which players to remove from the list is much more difficult (based on the fact that I never saw many of them play). I believe that some older players should remain not only for their talent and achievements but also for historical context.
