As one can imagine, there were many great players that could have been on the Top 64 Team. In the end, decisions had to be made that left a few players off.
Here are five players that almost made the team:
Reggie Miller, SG
Those who have seen Reggie Miller in his prime know he was one of the all-time greatest shooters, holding the NBA record for 3-pointers made with 2,560.
Throughout his career Miller scored over 25,000 points. He was known for his killer instinct, savvy basketball moves, clutch performances, and his loyalty to the Indiana Pacers franchise.
One of his best moments was scoring 8 points in the final 8.9 seconds against the Knicks in the 1995 Eastern Conference Semifinals, leading his team to a 107-105 win.
Overall, Miller was a five-time all-star, made the third Team All-NBA three times, won gold at the 1996 Olympics, and had career averages of 18.2 ppg, 3,0 rpg, and 3 apg.
Adrian Dantley, F/G
Adrian Dantley had a career spanning seven teams, but put up an impressive resume with six all-star appearances and twice leading the league in scoring.
One of the premier scorers in the 1980s, he averaged over 30 ppg between 1981 and 1984.
He also shares the NBA record for most free throws made in a game at 28 with Wilt Chamberlain.
Dantley was an Olympic gold medalist in 1976 with career averages of 24.3 ppg, 5.7 rpg, and 3.0 apg.
Bernard King, SF
Bernard King is a legend that was a prolific scorer throughout his career. Leading the league in scoring in 1985, he also put up back-to-back 50 point games in 1984.
King suffered a torn ACL in 1985 that severely hampered what could have been an even more impressive career.
Still, he was a four-time all-star and made the All-NBA team four times, including two times on the first team. Overall, King had career averages of 22.5 ppg, 5.8 rpg, and 3.3 apg.
Chris Paul, PG
Chris Paul suffered through injuries in the 2009-2010 season, but before that he put together some of the best statistical season for any point guard of all-time.
Paul was runner-up for the MVP award in 2008, was NBA Rookie of the Year in 2006, a Olympic gold medalist in 2008, and has been an All-Star three times.
He has made the All-NBA team two times (including 1st in 2008) and the All-Defensive Team two times (including 1st in 2009).
He already holds the NBA record for most consecutive games with a steal (108) and has career averages of 19.3 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 10 apg, and 2.4 spg.
Chris Paul has only played five years in the league, but if he keep up this impressive resume for the rest of his career, he will deserve to be added to the All-Time Team.
Carmelo Anthony, SF
Nicknamed "Melo," Anthony has also had a standout career so far. One of the top scorers of the past five years, he has led the Denver Nuggets to some of their best years in franchise history.
Carmelo Anthony has made the All-NBA Team four times and has played on three All-Star teams.
He is also one of the premier clutch players in the league who shares the NBA record for most points in a quarter with 33.
Having career averages of 24.7 ppg, 6.2 rpg, and 3.1 apg, Carmelo Anthony can make a future All-Time Team if he keeps up his excellent play over his career.
