    It's going to tough for Curry & Durant to get to the top 10 while playing with each other. But given Curry's current accolades and accomplishments it is possible. He's in position to rack up 3,4,5 NBA championships and grab a Finals MVP or two. He already has two league MVPs...what if he took home another over the next few years?

    Add that to Curry leading his team to the greatest regular season record of all time AND the greatest playoff record of all time. He's also the best shooter ever.

    Curry could make it into the top 10 when it's all said and done but I don't expect him to.

    I love making fun of Dwight as much as anyone but you gotta give the man credit. He had a pretty dominant first half of his career. He was the best center in the league and MVP candidate for about 5 years.

    I'm confused... why is Dirk, CanPee3 and Slight Coward in the top 10?

    Based on overall accomplishments or current up to date NBA top 10 players?

    Who else goes in?

    Tony Parker is the only striking omission I see because he isn't technically retired.

    There's not that many (*cough* Western *cough*) Conference Finals appearances to go around, and Dirk is one of the only alphas on the list with an actual ring and Finals MVP. CP3 is definitely your RSW on the list, but it seems like every coach or player poll I've seen the past decade has voted him to the top of the PG list despite his postseason struggles.

    Chris Bosh? Paul George?

    Who would you put Tony Parker in front of?

    Paul George is definitely a stand out, top 10 caliber player of his era but he hasn't accomplished much outside of all star teams and posting good stats(even his stats aren't incredible).

    Bosh is hall of fame worthy in my book but he may not crack the top 100 all time.

    This list is a ranking of current players based on their overall careers and all time rankings.

    Dirk is one of the most overrated players ever along with larry bird, john stockton, john havlicek and bob cousy
