My 'Magic-Bird Era' Top 4 Post Players

List Criteria: I think you pick these 4 players above any other post player in the "Magic-Bird Era"; which as defined by me began in 1979 with the addition of the 3 point through the current time (Magic, and Bird also joined the NBA in 1979). NUMBER 1-4 is debatable as to what order the 4 should go in for many. I have my preference; HOWEVER, NUMBER 1-4 I think are fairly clearly 3/4 to a whole step ahead of the NUMBER 5 top post player thus far in the "Magic-Bird Era". At Number 5 I think you begin the debate of whether or not to go with Shaquille O'Neal, or Kevin Garnett; the difference being that Shaq is a dominant force in the paint, and Garnett is an all around player who can shoot anywhere. My top 4: Robinson, Kareem, Duncan, Olajuwon REALLY they are all well rounded power houses; take your pick, and take your pick of what emphasis you want; they all feed the whole table, but they also bring an extra something different to the table as well.

Simply Put...I think you pick these 4 players above any other post player in the 'Magic-Bird Era' which as defined by me began in 1979 with the addition of the 3 point line through the current time (Magic, and Bird also joined the NBA that same year). NUMBER 1-4 is debatable for many - I have my favorite HOWEVER NUMBER 1-4 I think is fairly clearly 3/4 to a whole step ahead of the NUMBER 5 top post player in the ERA....AT Number 5 I think you begin the debate of whether or not to go with Shaquille O'Neal, OR do you go with Kevin Garnett....the difference being that Shaquille is a dominant force in the paint...and Garnett is an all around player who can shoot anywhere, and as well as a good defender (Shaq is a good defender as well..) TOP 4 David Robinson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Tim Duncan, Hakeem Olajuwon REALLY they are all well rounded power houses...take your pick of what emphasis you want they all feed the whole table, but they also all bring a little something different to the table.
