  • David Thompson (Skywalker)
  • Paul Arizin (Pitchin' Paul)

The verdict is not out on McGrady. But if he leads the Rockets to a championship without Yao, I'll reconsider. I would have to agree that Iverson should be up there instead of McGrady. and what about Oscar Robertson...

Unbelievable, you have T-Mac in as one of the top five EVER! Come on man, he chokes during big games, he can't get his team out of the playoffs (and don't tell me its his supporting cast, look at the Cavs) and he always keeps shooting even if he's having a bad game.  HE's not the top five ever, maybe even not top 10!

Love the order...the only problem is i think Joe D might be a little high...but hard to argue with any of the list...but i'd like to see what the list looks like in 10 years...

Top shooting gaurd of alltime in college??

I don't recall ever saying that... don't recall saying anything about college for that matter.

I would suggest you go look at the numbers but they were not that good

Stats mean nothing...

Micheal Jordan..Top shooting gaurd of alltime in college??..He wasn't even the best shooting gaurd on his own team...I would suggest you go look at the numbers but they were not that good..he did not develop a shooting touch until he turned pro...trust me if he could have shown that he had a consistent shot at UNC..Sam Bowie would not have beent hte #1 pick in the draft...

 

Top five

1. Pete Maravich...and its not even close

2. Jerry West...

3. Oscar Robertson

4. Daryll Griffith

5. Several at #5..Sleepy Floyd, Johnny Dawkins, Gail Goodrich, Rick Berry, Chris Mullen, and several others you oculd debate all day..

I would have Pistol Pete in the top 5.Clyde was a great scorer but his outside game was lesser than Pete's.

I agree with you true rebel, but how did Allen Iverson not get in there??

Top 3 look good, but not having Pistol Pete in the top 5?  I would take T-Mac out, slide Clyde the Glide down to 5, and put the Pistol in at 4.  Great post again though.
