Earl “the Pearl” Monroe is now 77 and the last time we saw him, like Bill Russell, he was using a cane.
But like Russell, he remains sharp and follows basketball closely.
In this clip, Monroe picks his five (okay, six) top NBA players of all time. Here they are
- PG: Magic Johnson/Oscar Robertson (he couldn’t choose between them).
- 2G: Michael Jordan
- SF: LeBron James
- PF: Karl Malone
- C: Wilt Chamberlain
It’s not the exact list we would choose but that’s what makes it fun.
