I respect doc on his hating game he stick to his gun can u imagine u play pro and come home your kids want jordan Payton don't run for office or maybe you'll b great at that flip flop
At G: Jordan and Magic. At F: Lebron and Bird. C: Chamberlain.Try defending that five. With any combination.
Jordan is better then all those people they named and Jordan is the only one it of them that has no losses in the finals
Jordan was #1 Media Propaganda in the world. In fact Jordan was nobody without Pippen.
lol the arguments here are funny, this is two separate individuals and THEIR top five, the players they like, why make arguments against other peoples top five? My starting five are Tim Hardaway, MJ, Pippen, Malone and Shaq, not because i can statistically prove they would be the best, they were just the players i liked most at those positions growing up.
Going by what I watched only.
Take notes kids… They aren't using analytics or copying and pasting accolades from the internet to offer their opinion.
Dementia and senility.
Luc Longley, Adam Morrison, Jack Haley, Granville Waiters, Bobby Weiss.
Its about how you play the game, how you see them play the game and the impact you have not just being on the team but the impact to make your WHOLE team better!! My Point guard Magic( hated him too big & too good) shooting G.Pippen Sm.forward MJ CENTER Akeem the Dream power forward Wes Unseld
Dr J is n will always be a Jordan hater…he mad cause Mike did his moves better than him.. lol..made them an art, music n poetry…Mike is to be on " everybody's " top 5 list…
I like the way Doc explained it.
Personal Opinion. Just like everyone doesn't listen to the same music that doesn't mean it's not good.
No Lebron fine no surprise, but no Jordan. There high as fu
PG: Magic BU: CurrySG: Jordan BU: KobeC: Dream BU: KareemSF: Lebron BU: PippenPF: Duncan BU: Barkley
The glove help built Jason Kidd and Kidd passed him in all time great Point Guards…lol. Now he's hating on MJ…smh
y'all going to hell for that stupid ass shit JORDAN not in the top 5 are y'all smoking crack get the fuck off them damn drugs they Fry your damn Brain SMDH
My top five Riley Reid Jenna Jamison seka Christy caynon venessa del Rio
Magic Kobe Jordan LeBron Shaq
BEST STARTING FIVE OF ALL TIME
It was bird, best shooter, best teammate, best closer, best trash talker, gave his body to the game, made more clutch shots than any other player, beat Michael Jordan 3 times, turned a franchise around when he a rookie from losing team to playoff contender, best off hand the game has ever scene. Like is there really a point to saying anymore… Larry Legend
"If I had to choose a player to take a shot to save a game I'd choose Michael Jordan; If I had to choose a player to take a shot to save my life…I'd take Larry Bird." – Pat Riley
My opinion: True greatness is the impact on the sport. Who put asses in the seats?, who turn on t.v.s?., who was global?. After the Black Sox scandal, baseball was done. Then came Ruth. He put asses back in the seats, turned on radios, and made baseball global. Muhammad Ali put asses in seats, created pay-per view t.v., and took boxing global. MJ put asses in seats, took the playoffs prime time (Magic & Bird ended tape delay playoffs, but were not must see prime time), and took basketball global, to the extent China now has a competitive league, thanks to Chinese MJ fans. The records can be broken, and stats surpassed, but Ruth, Ali, & Jordan stand alone. Also, based on this criteria, I'd argue Johnny Unitas was the greatest football player, because, starting with his 1958 overtime win against the NY Giants (that turned on t.v.s mid game, as millions of non fans watched football for the first time), and his continued greatness, the NFL took on baseball as Americas' favorite sport, as millions of kids wanted to be Unitas.
Jordan has to be on everyone’s list imo. The best scoring guard ever
This is why judges recuse themself from cases on which they have a vested interest and cops aren't allowed to investigate a crime against a relative. Two players who were deprived of further success at the hands of JORDAN so they now make a point of not mentioning him in their top five. They betrayed the sport in so doing and exposed their envy of who most know to be the gr8est player the game has seen, a man who when he played the NBA surpassed even the NFL for popularity in the US and was a international ambassador for the sport.
"Surpass kareem" 😂😂😂😂 dj j fam I got nothing but respect for you but it's obvious you don't mj cuz he stole you moves and made it better as well
Dr.J isn’t even in my top 20. I dont think hes in my top 50 if I’m being really honest here.
Mike Jordan, Mike Jackson, Mike Tyson, Mike Phelps, and Mike trout. That’s my top 5
Top 5 – PG-KOBE, SG- JORDAN, SF- LEBRON, PF- DURANT, C- WILT CHAMBERLAIN.
BENCH, IF I HAD TO MAKE ONE OF TOP 5. STOCKTON, BIRD, MALONE, DIRK, BIG BEN WALL
Magic , Jordan , Bird , Malone , Wilt
Anybody that doesn't have Bird in a top 5 list doesn't know shit about Basketball.
Easy choice, the '86 Celtics! The '96 Bulls agree with me.
I sincerely, very honesty have NO idea how someone can pick a top 5 and not include Bird. Of course, Dr J's five was when he was 15 – which is sort of silly – but regardless what era one played in I just don't see how Bird doesn't make a top 5. He elevated his teams like few others, and in my humble opinion he made some of his Celtic teammates better than they may have been on any other team. Of course, MJ HAS to be on any top 5.
Magic, Jordan, Bird, Lebron, Hakeem that would be a hard team to beat.
Dr J alone has more basketball knowledge and talent than the current generation of NBA players and everyone in this comment section combined will ever have. So y’all need to stop accusing Dr J of being a hater. He knows what he’s saying.
Game on the line, five seconds left: BIRD
Steve Nash, Rodman, Pippen, Jordan and Kukoc beat your team.
Idiots in the comments 🤦♂️
Elgin Baylor and wilt Chamberlain are the best players ever.
It would be nice to see Mr. J Irving as the NBA Commissioner someday soon
Dr J knows he’s better than MJ … He is also too humble to include himself …
Kareem Abdul JabbarWilt ChamberlainJulius ErvingMichael JordanJohn Stockton
In order for the top five to work, they need to be able to work as a team!!!!!!
Michael Jordan…well everyone jumped on his ride as he pulled the boring 60's and 70's and 80's basketball into modern times.Who didn't notice not only the changing of the guard but the changing of the game.The whole modern world cheered for joy as Dr J and his boring conduits playing days came to a end.We saw as the modern era was ushered in and spearheading that change was MJ.Ladies and Gentlemen we have a before Jordan and then a after Jordan arrived.
Anybody who doesn’t have Wilt as the best player ever does not know basketball. Just read the stats.
Magic, MJ, Bird, Pippen, and Wilt
She has nice legs. Sorry I went went off subject.
and i think leaving LARRY BIRD out of ur top 5 is silly and idiotic!!!!!
Funny Doc top 5 is also my top 5 no discussion,only masters!!
Kareem, wilt, magic, bird, jordan.In that order.
My all time list would be
Bill Russell at Center
SF -Julius Erving
PG-Earvin Magic Johnson
Jabbar why do people question
Best Top 5 of all time!Shooting Guard: JordanPoint Guard: MagicCenter: Kareem Small forward: Dr JPower forward: LebronNow tell me, which other top 5 can beat this team?
Gary just a hater… Still mad at Jordan
Wilt Chamberlain is the greatest player to ever play by a mile…at least a mile.
The Doc , MJ ,magic , bird , Kareem, all time
1. Wilt2. Jordan3. Kareem4. Magic5. Bird6. Lebron7. Bill Russell 8. Oscar 9. Dr. J10. Tim Duncan
Kobe #1 chucker
MJ Wilt Kareen period
The best 5 ever is not debatable its clear. Wilt MJ Kobe Lebron Magic.
Gary Payton lost to MJ in 96. MJ did Dr J better than Dr J. These guys are obviously bias on who the top 5 of all time are. Unquestionably the top 5 has to include MJ, Kareem, Wilt and Magic. Don’t matter the ranking of these 4 but they are by far the Mount Rushmore of basketball.
Sorry, Doc. You're wrong. You're the greatest ever.
Payton smoking some shit too… Dr. J. was great but not better than Bird & Havlicek .
Kareem overrated too… Dave Cowens outplayed Kareem in Game 7 AT Milwaukee to Win Championship for Celtic's .
I have much love for Dr J.But he never give Olajuwan his dues
How is WILT N BILL NOT THE FIRST TOO 2 ….. they started the trend to dominate.
Jordan stans : « cuz they salty!!!!! »
This makes me cringe. Both Julius Erving & Gary Payton have a chip on their shoulder. Jordan stole the spotlight away from Erving as the ultimate high flyer when he came into the league & he can’t STAND it! And neither of them have Michael in their top 5?!! And on top of that Payton puts Erving in his top 5 while he’s sitting right next to him. What a little a%^ kisser. Delusional & jealous, the both of them.
doc is not salty, he is ranking players only from the 60s, and intentionally left off kareem who he said is the best. you're not salty if you're being nostalgic about your childhood. plus he did have another interview which had another version that had jordan in his starting five fyi.
…and neither one of them haters picked Jordan! Kareem is not the best!! JORDAN IS!!! Kareem played with a group of hall of fame all stars with the Lakers and the great Oscar Robertson!!!
Wilt on both
Haha Kareem over MJ… not in a billion years. LeBron isnt even in top 5. Kobe, Magic are over him.
Both of these baton’ ass…not mentioning MJ. GTFO. Love em both though.
Dr j is Michael Jordan's idol
Wilt Chamberlain is the BEST that ever played basketball, though I didn't like him. Talent, ability and force. Your boy _ _ will never be good enough to make my team
Doc has a solid 5
One of my biggest regrets is not introducing myself to Dr. J as he stood on the train platform at Villanova all by himself and I was crossing from upper to lower campus sometime in late 80s.
I was trying to not appear as a crazed fan, but I was really a huge one. There was a prime opportunity to shake his hand, get an autograph or whatever and I blew it.
Payton, Jordan, James, Garnett, Shaq
Dr J doesn’t like Jordan , we all know that .
Dr J inspired me…I watched him play and go outside and practice what I saw him do for hours….except my rim was 8 ft and not 10 lol. The rim was nailed to an old walnut tree lol.It was great I still think of those inspirational days that are long gone.
I like that big lineup Gary, really like it. But if you go with guys in their PRIME… Chamberlain, Russell, Jabbar, Dr. J, and Jordan… With Bird coming off the bench… And for the record the Dream almost got Russell's spot… But I prefer a more defensive lineup, since scoring and rebounding is almost limitless… Assuming here we are play by late 80's or early 90's basketball rules… when they still had rules…
Funny Larry Bird not on list
Jealousy oozes out of these two hot air balloons. They both know Bird is on everyone's list. Ask Kareem.
My Top 10 Favorite Players of all time.. 1. Allen Iverson 2. Penny Hardaway 3. LeBron James 4. Jason Kidd 5. Mahmoud Abdul Rauf 6. Dwayne Wade 7. Ray Allen 8. Steph Curry 9. Carmelo Anthony 10. Muggsy Bouges
MY ALL TIME STARTING 5 🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀1st Team (By Position) PG Magic SG MJSF LeBron PF Duncan C Shaq
Second Team PG Stockton SG Kobe SF Bird PF Russell C Wilt
Third Team PG Jason Kidd SG Dwayne Wade SF Scottie PippenPF Hakeem OlajuwonC Kareem Abdul Jabbar
Dr. J is my favorite player in NBA! Goat!
The greatest white is Pete Maravich
Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul Jabar, Bill Russell, Michael Jordan, Lebaron James each one these players totally the floor with the presence, apology to Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Kobe Bryant,
If you've been fortunate to watch all these greats you're top 10 would change drastically ⚡🇨🇦
no Jordan, no Kobe, no Bird…. tight lists!! props to Kareem
Chick used to be cool till I found out she can’t stick to her own race
Bill Russell, Bob Pettit, Larry, Mike, and Magic. That’s my “starting” 5.
Pippin Jordan Hakeem Dunkin Magic
Dr. Jay dumber and dumber two Julius Erving Gary Payton Julius Erving is mad because Jordan is the greatest and Gary Payton is bad because Jordan feed him in the finals
Gary deferred to the Doc here. MJ is obviously the Goat 🐐 but they both hesitated to name him on that shit.
they cant stand the fact that MJ is the GOAT…DrJ because MJ became much better than him and GP because he could not guard him….That happens when you put your ego above reality
MJ , chamberlain, shaq, magic , curry
Personally it's not a top 5 wit out MJ.
C'mon, I love these brothas, but they so don't want to give props to MJ.
Wilt the GOAT. Did everything.
Wilt owns the record books, c'mon
