I am lucky enough to be 61 years old and use to go a lot of Hawks home games in the late seventies to early eighties. My favorites in this order:

1- Dominique Wilkins
2- Dr. J
3- Charles Barkley tie with Karl Malone.

My favorite game all time was one of my first. We still had John Drew and it was a win over Philadelphia and Dr. J back in 1978. Tree Rollins was the news though as the rookie went off for 21 points and we won in OT by one point. This is the game that got me hooked on the NBA. The crowd ( us ) was absolutely nuts.

Yeah, when ever I make all time comparisons, I pretty much ignore the pre-3PT-line era. The game was so different then. It's apples and oranges. Those guys may be better or may be worse, we're never really going to know.

Jordan
Kobe
Curry

The most impressive team I've ever witnessed was the 1992 Dream Team. I was fortunate enough to have watched them live on TV.

I sat on a plane next to KD and the guy has hands like dinner plates

Very thin but you’re not getting much change out of 7’ in height

I’m not small for a normal person (around 6’2”) but he is a giant

These are just what I witnessed

That reminds me of the time I saw Kevin Willis and Spud Webb at a Mall in Atlanta one day. I am 6'0" and Willis made me look small; but the real shock was he made Spud look like a five year old...

I'm kinda surprised to see no Dirk or Barea. If I were betting I would bet that at least one of them would be on your list.
Funniest Nicknames for NBA players I've ever heard on realgm:
1. Nicholas Kaboom

3. Glass
4. LeBaby

2. Jordan ... Not my favourite, but can’t deny he is best to ever play
3. Lebron ... has dominated the league past 10+ years

Curry going off is the single most incredible spectacle in the history of the game.

He took what Kobe used to do and went a full level higher.

Have never seen anything like Iverson in 2001. Philly was electric.
