    the disrespect towards the 90's and 80's. 1 they both have Michael Jordan on it, 2, the 90's were even deeper than the 2000's! Payton, Malone, Duncan arguably, Shaq (young!), Mutombo, Webber, Miller, Robinson, Hakeem the Dream Olajuwon, Clyde The Glide Drexler, Penny Hardaway. Seriously Will Cain? The 2000's are deeper? Iverson wouldn't even be on the bench in the 90's, only Lebron and perhaps Duncan would have started, and Shaq played in both era's. 90's hands down. Not to say 2000's weren't great, but seriously...

        @Pamplona Pamplona
        My 90s 12-man roster/team:
        PG: John Stockton, Gary Payton
        SG: Michael Jordan, Reggie Miller
        SF: Scottie Pippen, Chris Mullins, Grant Hill
        PF: Karl Malone, Shawn Kemp
        C: Hakeem Olajuwon, Shaquille O'Neal, David Robinson

        That's for the 90's 12-man roster.

        For my All-Time 12-man team:
        PG: Magic Johnson, John Stockton
        SG: Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant
        SF: Lebron James, Larry Bird
        PF: Tim Duncan, Karl Malone, Dirk Nowitzki
        C: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Hakeem Olajuwon, Bill Russell

                I think the 2000s team does win. Problem with the other decades (for example the 90s) Is that there's too many good players at one position. There aren't a lot of great Small Forwards per se. But there are a ton of great Power Forwards and Centers.

                      He forgot a lot of good players from the 80s and 90s like McHale, Ewing, Mourning, Starks....long list

                        1990s

                        My reasoning is that people forget how good Larry Legend was. You have Moses, Kareem, MJ, Magic *and* Bird? They're winning any day.

                        2000s had Shaq, Duncan, Kobe and LeBron.

                        2010s had a beast in Howard, Prime Lebron and Curry, and Warriors KD. They're enough to be better than the 90s where I think you basically have Prime MJ and Hakeem.

                            That's how deep the 2000s is. You can even throw away Lebron to the 2010s and 2000s will still be the best team

                                    Lebron is not even top 10. He's top 20 of all time, he got expose playing in LA. Toldya east led him to easy championship. Even kd and kawhi or gian is better than him lol.

                                      @OfficiallyMaSS Yeah shaq said that, that could be true or not. But its doesnt define kobe is not good lol, what he mean is if hes not ballhog they could win alot. As i said again and again kobe is a ballhog but dont bring it like " Woah kobe is a ballhog lebron is better" thats your point man. Its what you call attitude, kobe has a attitude inside court if he pass more they could win alot. Thats what shaq said lol for him being a ballhog. Is that your basis? Invalid again lol, if you bring that just to tell kobe is a ballhog tf i wont disagree with that. I told yesterday if youre basis of being one of the goat is has a better carreer then its for lebron i wont argue with that, but interms of basketball skills it goes for kobe all the way. I dont do stats sheet i always having a discussion and bring what i watched.

                                      @OfficiallyMaSS and one as you said lebron has a power that means the they are in favor of him, one of the reason why they in favor of lebron becausw of bussiness and lebron donated alot of money from charities. But be professional this is for all the lebron fans dummies. You cant have a debate by just putting lebron help alot of people. If the queation is whi is more helpful t goes for lebron, i know it myself. Lebron can easily recruit the players he wanted. Imagine if all the players can do that. He is like lets gather best player and go for championshio, while the other just acxpet their team and fight for the championship, im not saying they dont want to recruit because everyone wants to recruit also its just lebron always have an advantage.

                                      @OfficiallyMaSS lebron is a better defender? Base on stats? Tf even local players kobe is one of the best defender and better than lebron tf you talking about. Then what hapoen in allstar match getting block once you can call it lucky but twice with the same player i sont think so. And btw another game where kobe trying to dunk and lebron challenge him lebron failed to block kobe and kobe tap him and smiling. I base it by watching not bringing stats in google. I dont see and headlines wherr lebron is better defender, what i saw is kobe is one of the best defender and for offense nah everyone knows kobe is better. Passing? Lebron pass more but if you watch nba videos. You will see the difference pass of kobe and lebron. Lebron has alot of turn overs. Again and again if your basis of being one of the goat is has a better carreer then fine its lebron but if basis is basketball skills its kobe. I invalid all your statemene lol. Stats without context its just a pure research lol. Offense defense passing? Kobe all the way. But i. Passing if you base of the amount of pass then it goes for lebron simple as that.

                                      @OfficiallyMaSS Passing? Kobe is better passer lol, kobe's pass clean less turnover while lebron he has alot of turn over, offense? Kobe is better lol everyone knows it, defender? Kobe is better lol even nba players know it. Gonna guess it youre goinf to bring stats without context? Haha thats what im talking about, have a valid statement. What my basis is what i watched i not just go google and search stats and there goes it it copy paste and post it to have a debate. Remember allstar where kobe block lebron twice because lebron? Remember when kyrie challenge kobe and got blocked. My statement is base from what i watched im not the guy who argue and do search in google and bring stats. What your point is like "woah kobe got 24 points tonight and lebron is 26 woah lebron 2points higher he is better than kobe" "woah lebron team won anf beat kobe, he is better than kobe" thats your logic man. Thats teamplay. But if i bring kobes 5 ring other people will react its a teamplay also hahhaa.

                                      @OfficiallyMaSS And wait, you are being stupid now. You admit it kobe is more skilled than lebron. I already said if their basis of being one of the goat is better carreer lebron wins that, if basketball skill kobe wins that. Simple as that you cant even understand a simple statement. Lebron got a spot from being one of the best with the use of his physical force, thats what im talking about. Again i dont disagree for the people whos basis of being one of the best is has a better careerr but interms of basketball skills kobe got that.

I personally rhibk Iverson was a better player than Kidd but even with that opinion I have got to aknowledge the fact that Kidd would be a better fit and thus create a more dangerous offense.

                                                Plus, with such dominant scorers in the 2000s (Kobe, Shaq) you need a distributor, not another inefficient volume scorer.

                                                Kidd did more than Iverson in his career. Lasted way longer, and did way more than a stat sheet can show you. Iverson was just flashy and people have an awe towards him. After his ONE Finals appearance all we saw were first round exits where Jason Kidd was damn near 40 winning a chip against Miami's Big 3. Oh yeah, he also led his trash Nets teams to two finals when AI only did it once, and always went deeper in the Playoffs.

                                                  I think that Jason Kidd may fit better because AI is a score first PG in his prime and Jason Kidd is more of a pass first PG and with like Kobe shaq lebron on ur team u need to be able to get good passes

Put Wilt at Center. Elgin Baylor at the 3, and Bill Russell at 4. I would like my chances. All the blocks all the rebounds.

He already has his legacy as a scorer, excellent shooter, an MVP & a 3X champion. I wish to see more of it, though. Nonetheless, I'll take note of that.

That too steph against Lebron. Now dray was also suspended in btn and they lost momentum.. whatever still it doesn't change that cavs had lebron love kyrie thompson in their team. So it shouldn't be that bad of an image if u think. Steph reaching that milestone itself was an unbelievable achievement. If steph had won that then steph would have replaced MAGIC and would be immortal also he would replace LeBron from the era totally. But since he lost that series, he would not achieve all those status but still overshadows Stockton atleast now.

LBJ has impressive stats. But, he's prone to Hack-a-Lebron for no improvement in FT%, and prone to turnovers. He's a great player. But is he as great as Bird? It's a big No for you, right?
                                                                                  Same thing with Steph. He was unanimous MVP. They had that 73-9 record. But, haters will remember him blew 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals. That's a pesky historical event in basketball. It pisses me off sometimes. With that case, older generations could say that Zeke and/or Big O can play better, with more grit & toughness. It's just a relief GSW swept the Cavs in 2018.
                                                                                  One more thing, I wish I wouldn't see Steph getting TFs (technical fouls). I think Stockton only got not more than 2 in his career.

I still think steph has reached Stocktons level for sure regardless. Magic and stephs comparison can take a while, until steph finishes his career. Lastly its ur wish whom to keep.

These next 3 to 4 seasons could be his defining point as a starter. By the 2023-24 season, it will be another level to see him in the playoffs as a starter. If he can be in the MVP race at age 34, I will be happy to see it.
                                                                                  You're not that wrong about stats, especially that you mentioned LBJ. That's why I took the game winning percentage (Games Won/Games Played = Winning%) into consideration. In Playoffs Games Winning%, Steph can have an advantage.
