I'm obviously a little bit biased and I am willing to admit that. 


However to not have Kobe in a top 10 list is a little off imo. If I had to create a list it would go something like this:













I have a tough time actually putting them in order after MJ, because I feel like you could argue just about anyone from 2-10 as the 2nd best player. It also really depends on what criteria you base it on. You can look at purely stats, winning, a mix of both, demeanor + stats/winning, etc. Some are going to have Wilt much higher than Russell and some are going to lean the opposite way. Some people will take era into considering while others will solely look at legacy. I'm not sure that there is a sure fire top 10 list. The only thing that fair to create and say "top 10 all time" is a list based on criteria. 


A top-10 list without Olajuwon? I'd rank Hakeem above Shaq, Duncan, Kobe and LeBron.

Charlotte at this point seems to be following the Memphis/Indiana model for building a championship contending team.


The OKC model just isn't that realistic. OKC was very fortunate in more ways than one.

Panthers need to score more points than the opposition. It's the only way to win.

NBA 2K, MLB The Show, and FIFA have been far better sports titles than Madden for years.

I love how people are shocked that a team owned by UNC legend Michael Jordan might use carolina blue colors.


Charlotte Hornets' jerseys featured a carolina blue pinstripe. Lots of fans never even noticed it.

At least one team in Charlotte knows how to win close games. Impressive win.

I believe it was actually supposed to be on Morehead Street just outside of what is "officially" uptown.

Charlotte's skyline while already very nice, would have been incredible had the building bust not happened. Trumps towers were canceled, the Epicenter 50 story condo tower was canceled, the condo tower beside the Duke Energy Center was canceled, the 40 story condo tower connected to the Westin was canceled, the condo tower with the car elevators on Tryon was canceled, two hotels in 3rd ward near the stadium were canceled, and a 40 story tower right beside Latta Arcade/Brevard Court was canceled.

That is a lot of canceled projects and that doesn't even include the dozens that were canceled along South Blvd.

I'm pretty sure Trump was looking to build it on the corner of South Tryon and Stonewall Street. Right in the same area as the Duke Energy building. I seem to remember Morehead Street being mentioned. But I think that was just a rumor from when news of tower first came out.


I found this rendering that shows the Trump tower and a few of the canceled projects that you listed.

Havlicek had just retired a few years earlier, Cowens was near the end. Tiny was a very good player, and so was Cornbread. But the team itself was not good bro. Cowens even had to serve as player coach in 78 because the C's fired their head coach after a bad start. Bird didnt come into a "great" situation. 29 wins? Contrast that with going to an already made playoff team with the best center in the league. No doubt bringing in HOF PG Magic Johnson got LA over the hump and made them a championship team and he deserves all the credit in the world for that. But as I say, thats different than going to a weak team and making them championship level.

Exactly, Havlicek had just retired. They were a somewhat older team that was going through a period of transition. They made a few trades and struggled to develop chemistry (coaching didn't help). They also went through an owner change (there were talks about the team moving to the west coast). Players struggled with nagging injuries. But that team had plenty of talent. They were not as bad as their record suggested. All they needed was a young player like Bird to come in and give them a spark (and a decent coach). The Celtics had Hall of Fame veterans, an up-and-coming player in Maxwell, and a solid bench when Bird arrived. Don't act like he took a bunch of scrubs to a 60 win season while Magic rode the back of Kareem to a championship. That's not how it went. Bird was the main reason for the Celtics' improvement, thanks to his unselfishness play and ability to take over games. However, Bird had plenty of help along the way. Then the arrival of Parish/McHale took them to the next level the following season.
