Re: ESPN Top 100 list

Dave DeBusschere is too low. He is top 30 or so for me. He was a powerful defender and rebounder with 25 foot shooting range. His rival was Gus Johnson, another all time defender, who I don't see listed. Shameful, Gus was easily top 50.

I can't see anyone in the top 30 that should be moved out for a guy back in 85th spot.

Moses Malone, Karl Malone, David Robinson, Charles Barkley, Kevin Durant, Kevin Garnett, Elgin Baylor, Chris Paul, and Steve Nash.

All those guys couldn't match DeBusschere's complete package. And I would also put Sidney Moncrief, Joe Dumars, Dennis Rodman, Jerry Lucas, Nate Thurmond, Dennis Johnson, Sam Jones, Lou Hudson, Hal Greer and Lenny Wilkens in the top 50.

Re: ESPN Top 100 list

What do you consider lacking from David Robinson? Only singling him out because I've often felt he's a tad bit underrated, which is usually the opposite when it's a "90's guy" in discussion.

Robinson was all finesse and no power. He couldn't pass or handle. He missed free throws and jumpers in the clutch all the time. He could play weak side defense but couldn't contain serious scorers with face and go capabilities. A good player but not an all timer, I feel.

Amen, brother.

And those Knicks/Bullets games back in the day were S-E-R-I-O-U-S. It was a great rivalry.
