So many options on this one...

AI, the little dynamo, the scoring machine.
Nash and Marbury, two quintessential point guards.
Allen, a dead-eye shooter and great player.
Two young projects in O'Neal and Bryant.
Stojakovic, one of the best shooters, possibly ever.

How do you choose on a poll like that? All the others had standout players.

I'd take Ivy. Little bugger made a difference basically the day he stepped onto the NBA scene.

Wow, what an excellent draft. I'd have to say as of right now, Allen Iverson because he had a more immediate impact, and because of the knowledge we now have of Kobe and his sexual assault case, which you obviously wouldn't want to deal with.

allen ahead of Iverson???
:laugh: I didn't think someone would reply that fast.


To keep it short and sweet, I think Ray Allen is better than Allen Iverson. No one else has to believe that, but I certainly do.

well i certainly dont...these would be my rankings now

1. AI
2. Kobe
3. JO(a good big always over a good guard)
4. Allen
5. Marbury
6. Peja(only reason marbury ahead of him is because a goos pg is harder to find than a good wing)

well 5 other people than me thought that as well...like above mentioned he did more his first year and has shown he could and has led hid team to the finals mostly all by himself.....Kobe might get better stats, but he didnt lead his team to the nba finals all by himself..at least not yet

More people have picked Kobe over AI....Anyway, that's cool. I don't want to start an argument or debate because I don't have great reasoning for why I picked Ray over AI.

I do understand that a lot of people think AI is much better than Ray Allen, but I think Ray is severely underrated, and AI is a little overrated.

I'll take Kobe in a heartbeat. This was an awesome class, however, lots of stars here.

Yeah, you know it's a great class when there have been 30 votes, and not a single one for Stephon Marbury or Steve Nash, two of the best PG's in the league and perennial All-Stars.
