Greatest Basketball Players Of All Time
« see full list
Kareem was THE GREATEST BASKETBALL PLAYER OF ALL TIME, NO QUESTION. Kobe doesn't even compare, Lebron is good but doesn't even compare to Kareem, Who had the most points of all time in the NBA (38,387), Surpassed all these people for rebounds, Had an incredible amount of assists for a point guard, and mastered the hook shot. He won just as many championships as MJ, and just as many MVPs. Also, Abdul-Jabbar is the NBA’s all-time leader in minutes played (57,446, field goals made (15,837), field goal attempts (28,307), All Star Games (18), and All Star Selections (19). He is now 10th in Field Goal Percentage (.559), 2nd in Games Played (1,560), 3rd for most Rebounds (17,440), 3rd for most Blocks (3,189) Note: Blocks were not officially counted until the 1973-74 season, 2 years after Abdul-Jabbars debut in the NBA, and 14th in PPG. He had ten 50 point games, all with the Milwaukee Bucks. His career high was 55 points on December 10, 1971 against the Boston Celtics. He was also a two time player of the year (1967, 1969), Three time NCAA Champion (1967-1969), Most Outstanding Player in NCAA Tournament (1967-1969), and Naismith College Player of the Year (1969), along with Rookie Of the Year (1970), Six-time NBA champion (1971, 1980, 1982, 1985, 1987-88), NBA MVP (1971-72, 1974, 1976-77, 1980), and the first player in NBA history to play 20 seasons. Kobe Bryant or Lebron James will never be as incredible player as he his, and they will never score more points then him, even as Shooting Guards and Small Forwards.
No one could guard the sky hook. Most points scored in a career - not even close
Humble giant, master of all time, takes after his original coach, unforgetable speaker... Spoke about how he learned to be a good man ^^ about life through his coach. Kareem should be number 1 player.
Most points scored in the history of the NBA- He has so many blocks as well as some great assists. That is why He deserves number 1
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has broken more records than anyone in NBA history he has most minutes played, most points scored in NBA career, most most valuable player wards won then any other NBA player in a career, most fouls in an NBA career I am sure there are much more but I don't know about them Kareem had 6 rings in a 20 year career and he had quite a few rebounds now the mane thing about Kareem was his sky hook yes his sky hook just thinking about the sky hook you probably remember Kareem Abdul-Jabbar winning the game in Magic Johnson's pro debut with a last second sky hook what a player and to add to all that he was 7 foot 2.
How the heck is kareem this low. I bet the other people voting don't know one stinking thing about basketball. There probably just babies listen other people when they say jordan's the best. He is not. How is lebron so high he has only played 7 seasons and has no rings. Not hating on lebron or anything but COME ON! Babies that only know about today's nba and know nothing about it's stinking history. They csll there selves fans!
Kareem was not just the greatest NBA player all time, but he was the best college basketball player of all time. He went to a school where he was the only good player on his team and led them to 4 championships. His statistics were stacked! This guy was impossible to cover. He won championships like crazy (just as many as michael jordan) Lebron, Kobe, Larry, Magic, and Michael are not as good as he was. SO FACE THE FACTS
Kareem abdul jabbar is the greatest all around player ever, jordan great scorer, no rebound, when kareen was young 40 points 20 bourds 5 blocks a game easy, no one went inside on him. He did it all. If you had to start a team, start with kareem, then add jordan, bird, so on. He was just the best, he is number one by far. Mr Dman.
Kareem is beast he created the hook shot first one in history to do it. No lie MJ is better but not on the block and plus Kareem has the most career points in history of basketball so I have no ide what yall talkin about 8th place is way to high I think he should be in 4th or 5th place.
its hard to block the sky hook of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar he is the greatest Center ever He has so many blocks as well as some great assists. That is why He deserves number 1He scored the most points in NBA history!
So humble, so laid back. Players like Kobe and LeBron should take a leaf out of his book and learn how to be kind to people and behave appropriately. As for his playing side of things, his points say it all. (more than MJ)
In my opinion Kareem should be at second. Not first though. He wasn't as good as Michael but I think he was the second greatest player to play the game. Kobe and Lebron are good but not quite Kareem. Magic is pretty close though...
For most dominating and revolutionary player, it must be "The Captain" himself. Kareem is the one with the revolutionary SKY HOOK that could not be defended as shown by his many many records and rings.
Kareem beats MJ in so many statistical categories that I's hard to believe he is 7th. Pts, Rebs, Blks, Championships, MVP's, College championships, all-star appearances... You have to look at the numbers.
KAreem is the gratest player ever. He got 6 ships 6 mvps multiple allstars defensive player multi times and was a beast from high school to the end of his career no one will ever beat his record 7'2 goat
He is way better than lebron james are you kidding me? He deserves to be #3 no matter what he has the most points out of anyone in his NBA career. So please next time choose very carefully.
i was really expecting him to be bit higher, im mean when you have 6 titles and 6 mvps, and are the all-time scoring leader, chances are you'll at least be in the top 6 top 7
He is fonominal he is the best that is all I got to sayrthrdjtyjkberigfb eoirhgfoeb kwebfogig kjirg e3gi 3jrbg reubgoerg oreg oerigroirengiergoergn k oerglk o o ogergikjpi
The best blocker ever, he is unique in his style an accuracy. What a great player of the sky hook, most points scored in a carrer. Humble and respected player in his career.
No player represents the 70's and 80's as well as Jabbar. An amazing player. Will always remember is one arm hook shot, known as the Sky Hook, it made history.
Highest scorer in NBA history (38,387), made the unblock-able shot, 19 all stars, 6 championships won, 17,440 rebounds, 6 MVPs, 2 Finals MVPs
The highest achiever yet.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar will always be at the top of my list. His accomplishments are unmatched by any basketball player past or present. He silhouette should grace the NBA logo.
#8?!?!?!?!? Holy crap! This guy scored the most points and is the coolest and most unique player ever. He invented the 1 arm hookshot!
The highest scorer in the history of NBA. He should be rated the best player in NBA. It is true that no could stop the sky hook so easily.
Kareem was such a boss. He should be #1 because, well he invented a shot! No one could guard it and he is just a great player and he transformed B-Ball forever.
