Every player in NBA history in one draft — Name your guy

Legends such as (starting bottom left, clockwise) LeBron James, Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson Bill Russell and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar -- and every other player in NBA history are available in one draft -- name your No. 1 overall pick.

It’s the dog days of the summer for everyone and everything associated with the NBA.

So how about we take a brief respite from the guys signing two-way or Exhibit 10 contracts and try something a bit unique (OK, different)?

You, basketball fans, are now an NBA general manager and in our dog-days world, every single player in the history of the league — at the height of his powers, no less — is available to be drafted.

If all players in NBA history were available to be selected in an NBA draft, who would be your No. 1 overall selection and why?

Michael Jordan
LeBron James
Bill Russell
Wilt Chamberlain
Larry Bird
Magic Johnson
Oscar Robertson
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Other

Michael? LeBron? Russell? Wilt? Kareem? MJ? The Big O? Magic? Bird? Someone else?

There is no right or wrong answer. This is purely about opinion. It’s like… um, belly buttons — everyone has one!

So hit us up with your top pick to be the face, the leader, The Man of your basketball team.

Take a few minutes to explain your choice, or to debate those of others, and we here at AmicoHoops will weigh in on the guy each of us would select.

If nothing else, it should be a good time and it’s sure to be a slam-dunk, hot-take debate!
