Yep. Michael Jordan could pass the ball, too.
The most versatile players in NBA history have a lot in common: they are superstars, leaders of their teams, and the most recognizable names and faces for their franchises.
These All-Stars were able to excel at several facets of the game, scoring, rebounding, passing, and blocking shots on their way to the Basketball Hall of Fame.
When they were on the court, they could hurt the opposition in a variety of ways. Scoring is great but it’s only one part of the game. Likewise, rebounding and passing are essential to winning, but you have to score to win.
Every player on the list has won an NBA MVP award and all but one won an NBA championship.
Each player has led the league in at least one statistical category and although all are noteworthy, a few rise above the rest of the pack.
Steals, blocks, and assists are listed when significant. Blocked shots weren’t officially recorded until the 1973-74 NBA season.
Feel free to comment and if there’s someone you think should be included, mention who you think the player should replace.
