The NBA has a rich history of great players and coaches. We can go back to memory lane and reminisce about them. Time to check your old files and see what we've got.- Toto Battung

JERRY WEST : He stops and pops. West would hit in bunches and always in the clutch.

OSCAR ROBERTSON: Magic's forerunner bringing size, rebounding to guard play. Not to mention scoring, passing, complete control.

PETE MARAVICH: The original show-timer. Pistol Pete introduced the notion of style being important in it's own right.

LARRY BIRD: A throwback and an innovator, he's the apotheosis of do-it-all forward. A great creator who also made fundamentals exciting again.

MAGIC JOHNSON: The great passer who ever lived, Magic merged showy playground moves with solid team concept. He also introduced unheard of body control at 6-9.
