The 100 Best Players in Basketball History, Part 3

Monday, May 13, 2013

The previous installment is here.

We hit the top 100 for career value.  Here’s the first ten.

100.Andre Miller 97.95 PG 1178 .083
He’ll be below Worthy and above Dumars.  Below Lewis…the career value is enough to put him above Marques Johnson.

99.   Terry Cummings 98.12 PF 1293 .076
Below PJ Brown…but ahead of the guards that come next.

98.   Hersey Hawkins 98.22 SG 1057 .093
Look at the solid per game value on Hawkins, he’s going to rank high.  Between Sharman and McAdoo?  Let’s put him there.

97.   Sidney Moncrief 98.27 SG 860 .114
-Do we have a new leader?  Moncrief gets by Bosh…but not Johnston, that per game value is really very far above any of the other contenders. 

96.   Shawn Kemp 99.01 PF 1139 .087
Below McAdoo…ahead of Jones.

95. Lenny Wilkens 99.83 PG 1141 .087
You would not have guessed that the career most similar to Lenny Wilkens was the Rainman.

94.   Mark Jackson 100.08 PG 1427 .070
The first hundred win player…ahead of Cassell , ahead of Cummings…that’s it.

93.   Bob Cousy 100.71 PG 1033 .097
On this page, not as good as Moncrief.  Sorry Celtics fans.  Below Bosh too; fourth overall.

92. Charles Oakley 100.88 PF 1426 .071
Right above Cummings in that run of power forwards. 

91.   Tony Parker 102.2 PG 1045 .098
If Parker quits right now, before Game 5 in the Warriors series, he and Cousy will have had almost identical careers.
