    Thank you all for tuning in to this two part series! I know that cliff hanger in part 1 got some of y’all ready to square up but I hope the end result was worth the wait.

    Also I just have to say, throughout the process of making this video I spent hours and hours watching old film, looking up obscure stats and facts that only us basketball fans would appreciate, and watched clips of legendary moments and after awhile I caught myself getting lost in these old videos, in amazement at how incredible these players are and how awesome this sport is. Because of y’all I get to watch, dissect and analyze basketball for a living and I CANNOT thank y’all enough. This is truly the best job in the world and I’m going to continue to create this stories and videos for us to watch, share and enjoy. I Appreciate all of you 💯

      U said Kobe is better than Bird??? U say u could argue case for kobe as the goat!?!?!? How the he'll can u argue kobe as goat? Just how?! Kobe's most efficient season is less efficient than Jordan's least efficient... (as a bull)... meanwhile LeBron James caught up to bird in triple doubles in LeBrons 15th season... bird accumulated those triple doubles in 12 seasons.....

      It's not even a discussion if bird is better than Kobe.. . What kind of fanboyism are your trying to preach here?

      You nailed it bro, mad respect!
      Wasn't really nitpicking, the criteria makes perfect sense.
      Although some international fans like me have always wondered how a lot of non-USA guys would've ended up on this list (a young and healthy Sabonis in that Big Man Era, prime Petrovic and Oscar Schmidt as 3-point shooters and scorers in the 80's, etc.) it is as good as you can get.
      I was born in 1993, Allen Iverson is my childhood idol, next to T-Mac. I've seen Agent Zero burning dudes on the regular too. Young Melo was a beast, and is probably USA Basketball's G.O.A.T. (that's a nice suggestion for another video), and let me say this: your pyramid is on point.

    Just a note, having fewer teams to play against can be tougher. Imagine playing against 8 teams all with an all-star lineup? That was what Russell was facing. At least that's how Russell and Wilt explains it.

      Jordan and Bird should switch and here's why
      Over Birds career he averaged 24.3 Points, 1.7 Steals, 6.3 Assists and 10 Rebounds (Jordan never averaged a double double in one season at all)
      Over Jordans career he averaged 30.1 Points, 2.3 Steals, 5.3 Assists and 6.2 Rebounds
      Also if you check how many assists and rebounds Bird beats Jordan in those categories
      He 2,000+ more rebounds and about and has about 40 more assists then Jordan
      Bird beat Jordan even though he played 13 seasons to Jordans 15.
      Considering Jordan owns the Hornets and has done shit with them and Larry Bird won Coach of the Year in 1998 and was All-Star Coach in 1998 I'd say Larry Bird is overall a better NBA Player and him being a good Coach puts the icing on the cake for Larry Bird.

        I agree with this list, but I would move Wilt to Tier 2, he was the most dominant player ever. He has unbeatable scoring and rebounding seasons and games and is tied with MJ for most ppg in career. I would move Magic Down to replace him with Wilt. Magic might arguably be the best PG in the game but he's nowhere close to as good as Kareem, Kobe, Lebron or Wilt.

        The top 5 players and best starting 5 in my opinion would make the tiers accurate as well. PG - Lebron, SG - Kobe, SF - Jordan, PF - Kareem, C - Wilt. 1. Jordan, 2. Kareem, 3/4. Kobe, 3/4. Lebron, 5. Wilt.

                  There are three guys I would switch from your tier two and tier three lists...I think Duncan is tier 2 regardless, and if you match him up with Kobe, you have to say he was better in his prime and in longevity, just from a consistency and chemistry standpoint. I'll argue anyone down on Larry Bird vs. Lebron James, but that would take a whole video (strictly peak). I think that is purely on how much you value peak vs. longevity though, and I hardly value longevity at all, but still do value it with respect to guys like Derrick Rose and things of that nature. Also, Bill has to be tier 2. He proved time and time again he was better than Wilt. If Wilt was better, he would've won more than ONE ring in an era where only the big men mostly had any athleticism.

                    To clarify, I think Tim is more deserving of tier 2 than Kobe given his consistency. Hard to separate Kobe and Lebron, Lebron being so ball dominant, I still give Larry the edge, so it'd be easy for me to take those two off for Larry and Tim Bill I put above Kareem, but that one is entirely subjective. I value someone inventing fundamentals and having 11 rings over being the scoring champion and being dominant for 20 straight years...hard to argue, but then, that's why it was subjective. Overall, love the video, philosophy, and other things...oh, and I think Karl Malone and Dirk would be the ones to switch...or cycle them with KD and put KD in tier 4. Malone had Stockton; those other three didn't have anyone (Barkley being the third PF under him). Hard to close. Tough list to make.

                                                  Kawhi is actually better than steph curry he dominates in rebounds, steals, points and since curry thinks he’s so good he ain’t passing the ball he never averaged more than 7 assists and he’s a point guard, that’s his job and you never need a super 3pt shooter since ray Allen showed everyone that he’s the best 3pt shooter of all time, kawhi is also a respectable 3pt shooter. Kawhi won 2 finals mvps curry=0 kawhi won a final mvp in two different countries curry never even had finals mvp even tho he won 2 mvp in regular season but kawhi won DPOY once, Curry none. Kawhi beat curry out in the finals, stop sleeping on my guy kawhi

                                                                      My opinion but here’s the few thing I would change. I think since you’re doing tiers, I think each tier should Atleast consist of two players even tier 1. I would add lebron to tier 1 with mj since they are always up for debate. Yes most ppl say mj but lebron is still in the debate. 9 finals appearances to mj 6. Yes mj didn’t lose in the finals but he had trouble getting past the Celtics and pistons the previous years. Lebron almost dominated the east for a decade.

                                                                      I would move wilt to tier 2. Had tons of records and just dominated his era. Tier 3 seems low for wilt. With that, I would not remove anyone else from tier 3 and instead move Durant up to tier 3. He’s already got 2 titles now, a regular season mvp, and a couple of finals mvps. He should only add to his resume as he continues to play.

                                                                      Since Durant is moved up to tier 3, I think you can possibly have the conversation of adding kawhi to tier 4 at this point with his two rings and 2 finals mvps. He still has a long way to go but he’s cemented himself as the best two way player of the modern era. That’s all I would maybe change. Great list but I think mj and lebron should be up in tier 1. I’m not even a huge lebron fan.
