Michael Jordan, LeBron James, and Kobe Bryant are three of the best players in NBA history. Their influence on the league is huge and fans often place them among the top 5 players of all time.
Jordan led the league in the 90s, Kobe did it during the 2000s and LeBron was the face of the league in the 2010s. The new generations grew up watching these three on the court, or their highlights, becoming huge fans of them.
It's not crazy to see people calling them the top 3 players of all time, but not everybody shares that opinion. Recently, Hoops Mix Only shared a picture with LeBron, Kobe and Jordan, naming them the top 3 best players ever.
As usual, fans had something to say about this, with some criticizing LeBron and removing him from their top 3, while others did the same for Kobe and added the option they thought was a better fit.
The NBA has featured incredible players during all these years and it's always unfair to leave some stars out of these tops, but many fans are sure that some players belong to a tier of their own.
This week, we've seen Isiah Thomas, Stephen A. Smith, and Skip Bayless talk about the greatest players of all time, making a different case for each player, raising some eyebrows in the process.
These lists will always be controversial and everybody will always have something to say about what others believe. The NBA world is wild and that's not changing anytime soon.
