Just in that vague sense, who is the greatest all time...(a lot of these are debatable--let's chat):

Hawks (& Blackhawks):  Bob Pettit
Celtics:  Bill Russell
Bobcats:  Gerald Wallace?
Bulls:  Michael Jordan
Cavaliers:  LeBron James
Mavericks:  Dirk Nowitzki
Nuggets (& Denver Rockets):  Dan Issel
Pistons:  I'd say Isiah Thomas or Bob Lanier, but Bill Laimbeer is #1 in career win shares http://www.basketbal...ers_career.html
Warriors:  Wilt Chamberlain
Rockets:  Hakeem Olajuwon
Pacers:  Reggie Miller
Clippers (& Braves):  Elton Brand (thought of Bob McAdoo, but Brand played for franchise twice as long)
Lakers:  Jerry West (Bryant will pass him in win shares when it's said and done http://www.basketbal...ers_career.html )
Grizzlies:  Pau Gasol
Heat:  Dwyane Wade
Bucks:  Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Timberwolves:  Kevin Garnett
Nets (& Americans):  Jason Kidd (Dr. J only played for the team for four years)
Hornets:  Chris Paul
Knicks:  Patrick Ewing
Thunder (& Supersonics):  Gary Payton
Magic:  Dwight Howard
76ers (& Nationals):  Dolph Schayes
Suns:  Steve Nash?  (Kevin Johnson and Shawn Marion are ahead in win shares ( http://www.basketbal...ers_career.html )
Trailblazers:  Clyde Drexler
Kings (& Royals):  Oscar Robertson
Spurs (& Chaparrals):  Tim Duncan (David Robinson still slightly ahead in win shares http://www.basketbal...ers_career.html )
Raptors:  Chris Bosh (not as good a player in his prime as Vince Carter, but he played seven seasons with the team as opposed to five and leads in most major career categories; that inches him past Carter imho)
Jazz:  Karl Malone
Wizards (& Bullets/Zephyrs/Packers):  Wes Unseld

You're probably right.  At his pace, he'll become the franchise's all-time leading scorer in five or six years, so that means he'll have to sign one more extension with them, which is no guarantee.

But...if OKC wins at least one title with Durant, then Durant is the man at that point.

I would change the Denver Nugget player to Alex English.
Points 25,613 (21.5 ppg) Rebounds 6,538 (5.5 rpg) Assists 4,351 (3.6 apg)


8-time All Star and led the league in scoring once. Currently like 13th in the NBA in all-time scoring


Plus, I played him in high school.


76's would have to be Dr. J.

Yeah, that one was a tossup.  Issel is #2 in Nuggets scoring and #1 in rebounding; English is #1 in scoring and assists.  I kind of put my own * on English because a lot of his points came from the Doug Moe run-n-gun system.  At any rate, it was one of the tougher ones to pick, and either is arguable.

76ers is kind of a trick question.  Dolph Schayes played his whole 16-year career with the franchise, but 15 years of it was when the team was the Syracuse Nationals.  Schayes was always the best player on the team.  With Dr. J, his career was kind of cut in half (Nets/76ers), and in his 10 years with Philadelphia, he was only the best player on the team about half the time; he was sandwiched between Moses Malone and Charles Barkley.  That's why I give it to Schayes by a mile.
