NBA Top Five: Unchecked

In these times there’s something soothing about a good old fashioned top five.

So here’s mine. With all due respect (not the Ricky Bobby kind) to the likes of Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird who belong in any historical conversation...I’m going with the five best guys I’ve watched.

  1. LeBron James: The one man dynasty. No player has ever had more of an individual impact on a team than James. He is the difference between the finals and the lottery. He passes like Magic and scores like Michael. A complete physical freak who also happens to be a basketball genius.
