This poll is now closed.
Not just "who moves up the most places", more like " who makes the biggest relative jump." For example Dirk moving up 3-4 places is less impressive than Duncan moving up 3-4 places, because most people have Duncan higher. That sort of thing. And yes, take into account their current situation.

I tried to keep this list to the old-guy superstars between Jordan and Lebron who are still playing, and have already won a ring (obviously someone who hasn't won a ring would get a huge boost from their first one). Let me know if I forgot someone obvious :P

And yeah I considered Bosh/Gasol/Ginobli/Parker/Allen too, but they're not usually as high among the discussion of all-time greats as the above guys from what I can tell. That "second tier" really deserves a poll of its own. It might even be a more intriguing discussion, who knows.

I'd say dirk. No one else is capable of being the best on their team anymore except maybe Kobe. And Kobe is pretty much solid in his place on the all time list, IMO. Plus I'd love to see dirk win again, as much as I love Kobe.

If at first you don't succeed, I hope you weren't skydiving.

Wade

Dirk or Wade, but the Heat winning again might be Bosh's work with the way Wade's health is going.

Quitting after failure never leads to success.

Kobe or Duncan
#8BoyOfBattlePosted 8/10/2014 8:08:04 AM
kobe and duncan are already legends. Wade with another ring would make him comfortably in 3rd place among SGs behind MJ and kobe

None of them. They all are fairly stagnant on my list. However, KG would probably get a ton more respect amongst most people who watch basketball
