RANKED! The Top 15 Greatest NBA Players of All Time

With NBA opening day nearly upon us, everyone (and their grandma) seems to be releasing an NBA GOAT list. But while most people choose to base their rankings off crowd popularity, legacy points, or pure number-crunching, we thought we’d do things a little differently. And to help us in our quest for the perfect list, we enlisted five grams of weed, a packet of papers, and 20 hours of highlight reels. (Because all of life’s important decisions are best made while really, really high.) To that end, we bring you the definitive ranking of the NBA’s all-time greatest players.
