MOUNT RUSHMORE: The Most Significant Players in NBA History
Quote:I saw a thread on a basketball message board asking people to name the faces they would want to see on a 'Mount Rushmore' of NBA players. It led to some interesting discussion. Should the four players be the 'best' in NBA history? The 'greatest'? Or the most 'significant'? And what exactly do those terms mean?

Who would you have on your Mount Rushmore of NBA players?

I'd agree with Mikan, Chamberlain and Jordan but you've got to also put Julius Erving in there - the man made dunking cool and stylish and an integral part of the game.



Collect Patrick Ewing, Jalen Rose, Kevin Garnett, LaMarcus Aldridge, Jeff Green

if you have less than 25 trades, I will ask you to send first.

Collecting Bob Feller, 1951 Bowman, anything Cleveland.

Add votes for Jordan, Russell, and Chamberlain along with a consideration for Phil Jackson, if you take coaches.

I appreciate Chicago players that begin competing within the city's sports organizations and stay with these teams throughout their careers.

Most Significant? Man that's tough. Significant implies someone who truly changed the game or had an indellible impact on it. I guess I'd go with Russell (sheer defensive dominance), Jordan (proved a guard could take over a game in a big man's league), Magic Johnson (redefined the PG position) and Wilt Chamberlain (sheer offensive dominance). There are at least 10 others that could be up there though and I'd have little problem with it!

I collect Michael Jordan, Mitch Richmond, and Ohio State players (football and basketball) in OSU gear. I strongly prefer 90's-era cards and use newer cards primarily for trade bait!
