Being a bigger point guard Johnson’s game wasn’t build around speed & athleticism like Derrick Rose & Russell Westbrook’s, Johnson was a pass first player. He’s ability to find a open player was breath taking. Magic could play anywhere on the court from 1-5 like In the 1980 Finals when Kareem went down with a badly sprained ankle and the 6’9″ Johnson was asked to step in at center in Game 6 with LA up three games to two. Magic responded with 42 points, 15 rebounds, and seven assists. Magic was know for his iconic smile and rivalry with Larry Bird.Stats: 19.5 PPG 11.2 APG 5.5 RPG 1.9 SPGAccomplishments: 1980 All-Rookie Team, 12x All-Star, 3x MVP, 10x All-NBA, 5x Champion, 3x Finals MVP, 4x Assists Leader, 2x Steals Leader, Member of Hall of FameTeams: Lakers
The Big O was the King of the triple double! The league then had never seen anyone like him before. Unfortunately, he came up during the Celtic/Russell era and was only able to win one ring when he teamed up with Kareem in 1971 on the Bucks. More info about Kevin Durant Height…

The art of the assist, Stockton was a true leader out on the court and would always find a open man for a easy basket. Stockton was more your typical point guard “Pass first” and was well known for his dynamic duo with Karl “Mailman” Malone. The two where the true masters of the pick & roll play. Stockton is also the all-time leader in steals & assists.

at 6’1 “Zeke” was a little dynamo. He was one of the great villans of all time and still is, being part of the “bad-boy Pistons” that won two straight championships and not even a young athletic Michael Jordan could beat. Despite playing in the Magic, Bird & Jordan era Isiah didn’t give a damn as all he wanted was to win. One of the true legends he was.

Bob Cousy was one of the players that made the NBA what it is today. He and the Celtics started the fast break with Russell blocking the shot then sending it off to Cousy who’d run the break. Cousy handles where way ahead of his time like nobody had even seen, his passes where also always nice and crisp aswell as it seemed like he was playing in a Harlem Globetrotters game. Cousy won 6 titles with the Celtics including 5 straight!Stats: 18.4 PPG, 7.5 APG, 5.2 RPGAccomplishments: 13 x All Star, 1 x MVP, 12 x All-NBA, 8 x Assists Leader, 6 x Champion, Member of Hall of FameTeams: Celtics/Royals
