Kravitz: Top 10 NBA Players I've Watched with My Own Eyes

This thought starter all began with Steph Curry dropping 50 in game 7 of the Warriors round 1 series with the Kings.

I’ve had some fun back and forth with listeners over the past 24 hours about where Steph ranks all time in the annals of NBA history…

Steph is an interesting character in NBA history…I don’t think he’s underrated…but I think he ends up forgotten about at times. Because he’s not an in your face dunker / not imposing physically…so when you talk about the greats, you talk about all these larger than life figures…Steph’s just out here looking like all of us – slaying teams for years and years…

For me, its simple…personal list- I am leaving the old-timers off, this is just a list of the guys I’ve watched in my lifetime with my own eyes. For reference, I was born in 1985, I started watching the NBA with some knowledge as to what was going on probably around 1993. So that's my scope. I certainly recognize the history of the league with Kareem, Wilt, Russell, and even guys who I just barely missed like Magic & Bird. If I were making a laminated all-time list, those guys would certainly have their spot on it, but I went with a different flair here. Here's my list, the top 10 players I've watched with my own eyes!

1. Michael Jordan

2. LeBron James

3. Kobe Bryant

4. Steph Curry

5. Tim Duncan

6. Hakeem Olajuwon

7. Shaq
