Top 50 Basketball Players of All-Time: 50-41

50 Tony Parker (2001–Present) PG: As a big part of the San Antonio Spurs dynasty, Parker won 4 championships with the team. He’s also a Finals MVP and a 6-time All-Star.

49 Robert Parish (1976–1997) C: Part of the Boston Celtics’ original Big 3, “The Chief” played an NBA record 1,611 regular season games. In those 21 seasons, Parish won 4 rings, scored over 23,000 points, and grabbed over 14,500 rebounds.

48 James Worthy (1982–1994) SF: As the number one pick in the 1982 NBA Draft, Worthy played his entire career with the Los Angeles Lakers. During that time, Worthy won 3 rings and was the 1988 NBA Finals MVP.

Kevin McHale won 3 Championships with the Boston Celtics.

47 Dave Cowens (1970–1980, 1982–1983) C/PF: Not only was Cowens named the 1973 NBA MVP, but he’s also one of 5 players in NBA history to lead his team in all five major statistical categories for a single season (points, rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals).

46 Nate Archibald (1970–1984) PG: When he was healthy, Nate “Tiny” Archibald was one of the best scoring point guards the game has ever seen. He averaged 34 points per game and 11 assists per game during the 1973 season and was a 3-time All-NBA 1st Teamer.

45 Kevin McHale (1980–1993) PF: Like Parish, McHale was also part of the Boston Celtics’ original Big 3. Injuries shortened his career but still he won 3 championships with the Celtics, won 6th Man of the Year twice, and made the All-Defensive 1st Team 3-times as well.

44 Russell Westbrook (2008–Present) PG: Still in his prime, Westbrook has already accomplished a lot. He became the 2nd player in NBA history to average a triple-double in a season as he won the MVP that same year.

Dominique Wilkins was one of the greatest athletes in NBA history.

43 Ray Allen (1996–2014) SG: As the all-time NBA leader in 3 pointers made, Allen is widely considered the greatest shooter in history. The 10-time All-Star also hit one of the biggest shots in Finals history to give him his 2nd ring.

42 Clyde Drexler (1983–1998) SG/SF: Clyde “The Glide” Drexler is a Trail Blazers’ legend and one of the best scorers of the 90s. He scored over 22,000 points and was also a 10-time All-Star as well.

41 Dominique Wilkins (1982–1999) SF: While “The Glide” owned the 90s, “The Human Highlight Film” owned the 80s. Wilkins ranks 13th on the all-time scoring list with 26,668 points and was named to 9 All-Star teams. Wilkins was also one of the best dunkers ever as he won 2 Slam Dunk Contests.
