THE BEST PLAYER OF ALL TIME3 The Best Player of All Time The National Basketball Association, otherwise known as the NBA, is an association that has allowed us to see some of the greatest athletes to ever play the game of basketball. When we think of NBA basketball or basketball period, we think about dunks, three pointers, and alley-oops but there was a unique element of basketball that players specialized in and brought to the NBA; specialties that players use today. John Stockton of the Utah Jazz made the element of passing truly known as an asset of a point guard. Julius Erving of the Philadelphia 76ers brought his electric, spectacular dunking ability to the NBA which influenced many future high-flying players, such as Dominique Wilkins and Shawn Kemp, and made the NBA a more exciting league to watch and be involved in. Charles Barkley, made an underrated trait, rebounding, his forte and made a path for future glass-eating big men such as Dennis Rodman and today’s superstar power forward, Kevin Love. Dikembe Mutombo made his name known for his amazing and intimidating shot blocking ability. Then there was Hakeem “The Dream” Olajuwon whose offensive post moves were practically unstoppable. But there were two individuals that will forever be debated as the greatest of all time (GOAT).
