10 best players 6-10 to 7' tall

Who were the 10 best players between 6-10 and 7-0? The big men, Mikan/Russell/Olajuwon, but not the supergiants yet.



Looking for career value, not just peak. Using B-R as standard reference and adding 1" to the height of players measured in their socks . . . it changed around 1970-72 so lets say to players whose rookie year was before 1970 unless someone can pinpoint the date for me.

Bill Russell (6'9 or 6'10?)
Hakeem Olajuwon
Kevin McHale
Kevin Garnett
Tim Duncan (?)
Chris Webber
Dirk Nowitzki
Tom Chambers (6'9 or 6'10?)

Off the top of my head. I'll add more as I think about it.

Re: 10 best players 6-10 to 7' tall

IMO, a player is going to have to play a minimum of 10 seasons before being listed. My list is a subjective combination of longevity, high levels of performance and overall impact on the game:

1.) Bill Russell
2.) Tim Duncan
3.) Moses Malone
4.) Hakeem Olajuwon
5.) George Mikan

6.) Willis Reed
7.) Kevin Garnett
8.) Kevin McHale
9.) Dirk Nowitzki
10.) Nate Thurmond

Other players of note include (in no particular order) Bob Lanier, Larry Nance, Chris Webber and Spencer Haywood.

Re: 10 best players 6-10 to 7' tall

Ok, I'll try it.

1. Bill Russell
2. Hakeem Olajuwon
3. Tim Duncan
4. Moses Malone
5. Bob Pettit
6. George Mikan
7. Kevin Garnett

here there seems to be a big dropoff
8. Willis Reed
9. Kevin McHale
10. Dirk Nowitski

not sure about last 3, will think a bit more and possibly edit
