    Julius Erving oddly left LeBron off his all-time NBA top 10 list because of role in superteams

    In an interview with Chris Haynes, Erving said he wouldn’t put LeBron on his first two all-time, All-NBA teams…

    I agree.

    In another article I found this:

    During an appearance on ‘Posted Up with Chris Haynes’, the Hall of Famer was asked to put together his all-time NBA first and second teams.

    And whom are those players?

    The first team from Dr. J featured Elgin Baylor, Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson, Bill Russell and Jerry West.

    The second team included Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan and Karl Malone.

    And of that list, not only did he not put comrade James on it, but no player after 2005 made the list!

    I have to agree with his lists.

    What those 10 players did to grow the game none can dispute.

    And the fact he did not include himself just adds credibility to his list, IMO.

    I still think he did more than Malone, but that is my opinion.

    I love watching old school nba tapes and documentaries. Those players were the real ones. Respect for Dr. J not being afraid of saying what he thinks.

    Lebron is a great player, but he has many negative aspects, and he’s kinda of a bitch and no one likes to have a bitch as a teamate, let alone as a leader.

    my 1st all time team would probably be something like this:

    Isiah Thomas
    Jordan
    Julius Erving
    Rodman
    Hakeem Olajuwon

    and a 2nd one like this:

    CP3
    Kobe
    T-Mac
    Duncan
    Shaq

    There are still names i couldnt fit in like Wilt Chamberlain, Jon Stockton, Iverson, Garnett, Nash, Magic, etc :)
