#1 pick on the 2022 draft Paolo Banchero recently revealed his updated top 5 all-time players, removing Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant.
NBA is one of the most talented leagues for any sport. Many all-time greats have graced the sport with their presence in the league.
Over the course of the league, several fans and analysts have had a great yet heated time debating over the GOAT, all-time 5, and the Mt Rushmore list of the league.
While the answers may differ from person to person, most enthusiasts have the likes of Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James on their list.
Paolo Banchero is just one of many to have all these three generational talents on his all-time top 5 players list.
“Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Magic Johnson, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar”: Paolo Banchero names his top 5 all-time players
When asked to reveal his all-time top 5 players list, the former Duke Blue Devil revealed (“in no order”):
Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Magic Johnson, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
This list seems to be slightly different from his all-time dream starting 5 he had disclosed only a few weeks back.
Earlier, Banchero had named LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and Hakeem Olajuwon to his team.
It almost seems as if Paolo has switched Steph with Magic, KD with Kobe, and Hakeem with Abdul-Jabbar.
