The NBA 75th Anniversary list of the 75 Greatest Players of All Time has been released. Actually, it ended up being 76 because the voting was tied for two players. Apparently the league figured it would be better to include an extra player than leave someone off unjustly.
In that spirit, we’re going to ask you a question this weekend. The following current and former Portland Trail Blazers players made the list:
Damian Lillard, Clyde Drexler, Bill Walton, Scottie Pippen, Carmelo Anthony, and Lenny Wilkens.
Let’s say the league wanted to add a 77th player to the list and invited each franchise to submit one name for consideration, a player who wasn’t already enshrined. Which Portland Trail Blazers player would you nominate for the honor?
You can use any criteria you wish, anything from statistical success to comparison to All-Time greats to just your personal bias. We don’t care how you get there, just give us the player that you think would be the best fit!
