NBA Stats

I have been keeping track of NBA statistics on a regular basis for well over 10 years. I enjoy watching the current players in the NBA break the records that prior legends have set. I know you can't see it very well, but below is a copy of the format I use to track Points, Rebounds, Blocks, Assists, and Steals for the top 30 all time achievers. Active players are highlighted in yellow. (Sorry again for the poor quality) When I hear someone say that a player is one of the greatest players of all time, unless I see them on this list I don't even want to discuss it. This is the longevity list which shows which players contributed consistently over time.

I hear a lot of people talking about how great Lebron and Dwayne Wade are. I love those players and think they are amazing, but they have not paid the price yet to be listed as one of the greatest of all time. For an example of an amazing player, look at Hakeem Olajuwon. He is in the #8 all time scorer, #11 in rebounds, #1 in blocked shots, and #8 in steals! That is crazy for a center.

Soon I will be releasing my updated top100 NBA players of all time. I have developed a formula, but have to adjust some numbers on it since the new NBA season started. I utilize quite a bit of information from the sheet above to help determine the best players. I should be posting that list soon.


  1. I Love this list! I think you should put it in excel format and email it to me.

  2. Looking forward to the top 100 list. (I think it should be based on the players with the coolest shoes though, not the best skill)
