Nash is a 2 time MVP. Iverson was more popular but it's basically like comparing Vince Carter to Dirk.


Iverson won an MVP. Led a finals team that took the only win off the 2001 Lakers. Was your favorite players favorite player growing up. Is one of the most iconic figures of modern basketball. Orders of magnitude more popular than Nash and laps him in "legendary" nba moments.

Yeah, there's no question on a "legends" team, Steve Nash has no business whatsoever over Iverson.


Absolutely, people love to hate players like Iverson because they don't care about their precious analytics and their opinion in general. He was his own man and a unique basketball player who will be remember more fondly than Nash.

Legend argument is really bad because criteria is best players in certain position in one decade among legendary players, not which players is most popular or the most legendary player on certain position.

Chris Paul definitely not. Just look at their resumes on 00s. Iverson MVP, every year all-star, 7 time all-nba,...

Chris Paul has 3 all-star seasons, 2x all NBA...

Look at the link about what players thought of Nash. And who they had in each decade.



What black players think about Nash to be precise. There are a lot of things that aren't true in this video:

1) Nash didn't steel MVP's from Shaq because even if Nash didn't won Dirk, Kobe, Lebron and Garnet had better seasons.

2) Shaq didn't averaged 28 15 he averaged 20 and 9 in Nash's MVP year and played ony 59 games.

3) Shaq never averaged 15 rebounds per season.

4) Thing that Reggie said that he would pick Kidd, Payton and AI over Nash in playground is pure nonsense because he is superior on offense in comparasion to Kidd and Payton and only AI is better if we look at scoring. Second thing that he overlook is that Nash is better three point shooter than all three guys and in playground buckets from perimeter are worth 2 points while shots inside are worth one so shooting from perimeter is even more important than it is in the NBA and Reggie was good three point shooter so i know that he know how valuable that skil is. On top of that he is great playmaker and only Kidd is close when it come to playmaking so he would help his teammates to score easy buckets. If he think that they would be better because they are more physical he need to know that good offensive players are much more valuable in playground enviroment . You can be physical as much as you want but more offensively talented player is going to win in 80% of the games.

That video is another perfect example how small white guys get treated in NBA by their peers.

Hakeem and Jordan is about as perfect a base for a team regardless of era or rules or style or matchups.

Id rather have Nash in the starting 5 if LeBron and Kobe are there. I'd want a shooter.

Listen, nobody should care about 2K's honors. Those guys have gone full arcade NBA jam - they're appealing to that audience.

Anthony Davis? I think people forget that Dwight was an absolute machine before injuries started to take him down.

Personally, I'm taking Paul between 2006-2010 over Iverson.

You mean the injuries that started to take him down right before he joined the Lakers in 2012?

He's certainly a legend because of the absurd myth build up around him. He made the Finals in a trash heap of an East and caught the Lakers napping, after stealing an MVP from Shaq. He's certainly a popular guy but IMO the real legend is the guy who was the architect of one of the greatest offences in the NBA.


Regardless, Iverson will be more of a legend if you ask most people who ever remotely followed the nba.


If that's the case, then Yao Ming should be on this list over Shaq.

Replace Dwight with Kawhi Leonard and replace Iverson with Jason Kidd, than it's a perfect list.


You can't replace Dwight with Kawhi since Kawhi is neither a 5 or a small ball 5.

And honestly,you know damn well,Leonard needs more seasons like 2019 and 2017 to be in the discussion with the rest of the SFs on the All-Decade teams/GOATs,but you're either heavily influenced by recency bias or you just want to mention Kawhi every single time,just to throw his name out there.

:dontknow:


Kawhi has 2 defensive player of the years, I dont know why you throw that away like its nothing.

2 defensive player of the year awards and two playoff years as the best player. Dwight was never the best player in the playoffs EVER, he's a bum that was lucky to face a 1 man cavs team and than wet himself in the finals.

You could put KD as center and Kawhi at PF and go small ball, its better than putting the smiling geek Dwight in there.

And he never really played with anyone with any kind of offensive ability in his prime.

Which is so stupid especially when you see the halftime show and see it's the inside the NBA crew minus Chuck.

Also the classic Detroit team is missing Rasheed Wallace. I dont know why lesser retired players are still being stubborn about this stuff when Jordan, Shaq and Kobe are in the games.
