Several years ago, I gave out my Top 50 list and got some real mixed opinions about it.  But, after looking at ESPN's list, I've got to change my own opinion.  This is the REAL list of the Top 50 players in NBA History.  What does everyone else think?

I'm watching ESPN right now, and they just flashed across the screen that Wes Unseld, who's #50 on my list, has just passed away at age 74.  At least he led the Bullets/Wizards franchise to a title in 1978.  He will never be forgotten.

Here’s me next to Alonzo Mourning circa 2010-ish. I’m every bit of 6’1” and felt like a child next to him. Very nice guy. 


How embarrassing that no one let you know you had something on your face before taking the picture.
