Dominque seems fine at number five. Not convinced he was better than Dr. J or Rick Barry. 

What about Bill Walton? I would rather see Mourning in there then Walton.

That very well could happen tonight. Walton is a what if guy. Fact is he did hurt his foot.

Top 50 trumps all arguments.

If He didn't play for Boston, would You still have the same opinion about Fragile Bill?

Absolutely. He made his rep in Portland, not Boston.
That's like you saying the only reason I think Tom Seaver was one of the greatest pitchers who ever lived because he played for the Red Sox. Just silly.

You know, the more I think about what you wrote, the more utterly ridiculous I think your statement is. I mean, THE GUY'S TOP 50. This isn't a list I just made up out of thin was done by the godddamn NBA! I mean, just because Dominique Wilkins wasn't on it doesn't invalidate the entire list. And I really don't think "the fix was in" when this list was compiled because Walton played for Boston or was a great basketball announcer or was a great college player or whatever other reason you might decide to pull out of your ass as to how I could possibly think Walton should be in this tourney. He was Top 50. During his time with Portland, and early in his days with San Diego, he was one of the best players in the league. And at the end of the day, 15 years ago, the NBA determined that Walton was one of the 50 best ever. I don't know what else to tell you. As far as I'm concerned, it's case closed.

But you just go on with your homerish fanboy fantasies about me if it helps you get through the day.

To Me it's a joke that He's in the top 50. As Claw said earlier, He's probably the most overrated NBA Player ever.
