NBA Announces the 75 Greatest Players of All Time
The NBA has kicked off its 75th-anniversary celebration by naming the 75 greatest players in the league's history. The entire team was announced on Thursday and includes a total of 158 NBA championships and 730 NBA All-Star selections, a combined 110 Kia NBA Most Valuable Player Awards and Bill Russell NBA Finals MVP Awards. The team was selected by a panel of current and former NBA players, coaches, general managers and team and league executives, WNBA legends, sportswriters and broadcasters. The panel didn't rank their elections.
One player who didn't make the last is Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson who expressed his anger over being snubbed. "I definitely think both guys are top 75, just based on winning and two-way basketball and everything that really matters more than statistics and anything related to numbers," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Thursday when talking about Thompson and Draymond Green not being on the list. "What matters is if you're winning championships, and that's what counts. I would have hoped and thought that both guys would be on there." Here's a look at the entire list going in alphabetical order.
