  • Cincinnati Royals 1960-1970
  • Milwaukee Bucks 1970-1974

Oscar Robertson immediately became one of the league’s top players in his rookie year. He was an integral part of his team during his stay with the Cincinnati Royals and quickly averaged a ridiculous triple-double in a season in just his second year – he is also the first player to that feat in the history of the NBA, thus earning the nickname “The Big O.” Basketball also saved his family from bankruptcy and that meant a lot for him and his achievements are well-recognized by the fans of the game.

  • Houston Rockets 1984 – 2001
  • Toronto Raptors 2001 – 2002

Hakeem “The Dream” Olajuwon is perhaps one of the top big men in the league. Unlike traditional big men that controlled the painted area with their sheer muscle, Olajuwon dominated the land under the rim with grace and finesse. He’s also an expert when it comes to low-post moves with his soft touches. Credit to his skill set, The Dream managed to grab back to back championships for the Houston Rockets and cemented his legacy as one of the all-time great big men in the NBA.

  • Golden State Warriors 2009 – Present

Stephen Curry revolutionized the current era of the NBA with his sweet and deadly long-range bombs that earned him a couple of championships and made the Golden State Warriors the dynasty that we know today. He also led the small-ball era that the teams around the league uses today. His accomplishments were recognized greatly by his peers and he was the very first player to win the MVP award unanimously. We can’t see why the Golden State Warriors would not place a huge investment in this one of a kind superstar.

  • Seattle SuperSonics 2007 – 2008
  • Oklahoma City Thunder 2008 – 2016
  • Golden State Warriors 2016 – 2019
  • Brooklyn Nets 2019 – Present

NBA fans rarely see the skill set Kevin Durant offers on the table. He is categorized as a big man with the ball handling skills and the shooting touch of a guard and that alone made him one of the best offensive machines in league history. His massive output plus his overall impact in the game gave him two championships with the Golden State Warriors and a pair of Finals MVPs. Even if he opt for retirement due to his recent injury, we are pretty sure he’ll never cross the bankruptcy line.

  • Virginia Squires (ABA) 1971 – 1973
  • New York Nets (ABA) 1973 – 1976
  • Philadelphia 76ers 1976 – 1987

Julius Erving was playing well beyond the time his opponents played against him. He usually played above the rim as a high-flying acrobat that can finish either smooth or strong touches around the rim. If any of his guards were caught between him and the basket, it only meant it was poster time! His basketball prowess earned him a championship in 1983 and a Hall of Fame slot 1993. What’s more surprising, after he stepped away from the hardwood, he finally fulfilled his long-time promise to his mom of earning a college degree for himself.

  • Los Angeles Lakers 1960 – 1974

Retired NBA superstar and now NBA executive Jerry West was known as Mr. Clutch because of his effectiveness in crunch times and from our standpoint, he lifts his game to another level during crucial moments of the game. Analysts and basketball enthusiasts place him at the top of their list when they are talking about the players at his position. Jerry West pretty much reached a long way now and accomplished lots of things compared to his younger days when his family were merely on the verge of bankruptcy.

  • Utah Jazz 1985 – 2003
  • Los Angeles Lakers 2003 – 2004

Karl Malone always delivered top-notch plays that transformed the Utah Jazz from your regular NBA team into a championship contender during the 90s and that’s probably the reason he was called “The Mailman.” He currently holds the number two slot for points scored in the league right behind the living legend, Kareem Abdul Jabbar. Just like the G.O.A.T Michael Jordan, he also has a statue right outside the walls where the Jazz play. Malone is now retired and we are pretty sure he had all his business and insurance plans already laid out.

  • 1974-75 Utah Stars (ABA)
  • 1975-76 Spirits of St. Louis (ABA)
  • 1976 Buffalo Braves

  • 1982-86, 1993-94 Philadelphia 76ers
  • 1986-88 Washington Bullets
  • 1988-91 Atlanta Hawks
  • 1991-93 Milwaukee Bucks
  • 1994-95 San Antonio Spurs

Moses Malone’s name is considered one of the all-time greats when it comes to basketball. Well, after all, he wouldn’t make it on this list if he hadn’t had the credits to do so. He led the 76ers to an NBA title in 1983 and was chosen as the league’s MVP for the second time. His peers dubbed him as “Chairman of the Boards” with his strong and consistent performance of tirelessly getting most of the rebounds in the games he played.

  • Dallas Mavericks 1998-2019

The ninth pick of the 1998 NBA draft will go down in history as one of the greatest power forwards in the history of the sport and that’s none other than the sweet-shooting big man, Dirk Nowitzki. He was initially drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks and on the same day, he was traded to the Dallas Mavericks. His peers gave him all the credits he deserved as the best Mavericks player of all-time. He also brought home The Larry O’Brien NBA Championship Trophy to the city of Dallas back in 2011.

  • Minnesota Timberwolves 1995 – 2007, 2015 – 2016
  • Boston Celtics 2007 – 2013
  • Brooklyn Nets 2013 – 2015

Kevin Garnett is known for being the heart of the team he was on during his time with the NBA. He was a born leader both on and off the court and acts as the backbone of the team when they need an extra push to get the job done. He also led the Boston Celtics to an NBA championship back in 2008. After he built up a good credit score while playing in the league, he then joined the gang of Inside the NBA as one of the crews for the show.
