Ranking the NBA’s top 75 players started easy. Jordan, LeBron, Kareem, Wilt, Magic, Russell, Oscar, Baylor, Bird, Kobe, Shaq, Duncan, Hakeem, Erving, Durant, West, Curry, Malone (both Karl and Moses), Baylor, Mikan, Pettit.
The list goes on: Stockton, Iverson, Kidd, Garnett, Isiah, Pippen, Havlicek, Wade, Ewing, Kawhi, Giannis, Harden, Nash, Paul, Nowitzki.
It was easy.
Until it wasn’t.
Somewhere around No. 50, it became more difficult to narrow the NBA’s greatest players to just 75.
