play
Greatest NBA player of All Time? (1:19)

Jackie MacMullan says there are too many NBA greats to choose just one. (1:19)

It's here, the main event! All-Time #NBArank moves into the Top 100.

To create All-Time #NBArank, we put together a ballot with the 150 greatest players ever. Then our ESPN expert panel voted on thousands of head-to-head matchups, choosing the greater player each time, with voting based on both peak performance and career value. The result is our all-time NBA Top 100.

The Top 100 will roll out over the next few weeks, beginning with players 91-100.

(Also, check out our positional rankings of the 10 best point guards, shooting guards, small forwards, power forwards and centers of all time.)
