You'all know I'm old. Bob Cousy - the first real magician with the ball. Magic Johnson - the greatest magician with the ball, and at 6' 9" !! Larry Bird - great scorer, better passer (do I sense a trend here?) Bill Russell - rebounds, defense, a winner and team first player. Isaiah Thomas - an assassin with a smile Bill Walton - a really great college and pro player whose career was shortened by injuries. And by the way, I think all these guys have a NBA title and a MVP.
