Last week ESPN.com ranked the top 5 active players at every position. That’s cool and all, but with the next NBA season in question and seeing as we are at the beginning of a new decade, I thought it might be just as fun to look back and rank the top 5 players from the last 5 decades.
With the retirement of Yao Ming upon us, the question begs to be asked: Is he a Hall of Famer? A Hall of Famer who Yao seems to compare somewhat with is Bill Walton.
The NBA doesn’t have a Hall of Fame and is instead lumped in with the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, which includes everything and everyone that has contributed greatly to the game of basketball. In new MSF writer Tony Nelson’s opinion, it is time the NBA gets its own Hall of Fame.
