Arguably one of the best players to ever grace the game of basketball, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar should come as no surprise to anyone as the No. 2 player on the countdown.
Abdul-Jabbar played 20 years in the league, playing his first six with the Milwaukee Bucks and his last 14 with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Abdul-Jabbar made an impact quickly, with 28.8 points and 14.5 rebounds per contest as a rookie, which eventually would give him the NBA Rookie of the Year Award in the 1969-1970 season.
His number are jaw-dropping.
As far as scoring goes, Abdul-Jabbar was arguably the best the game has ever seen. His 38,387 points are the most in NBA history, while his 24.6 points per game are 15th of all time.
Defensively he was a presence as well, with the third-most blocks in NBA history (3,189) and third most rebounds of all time with 17,440.
What made this player even better, his winning mentality was arguably even greater than his numbers. How much better was it?
Abdul-Jabbar has won the league's NBA MVP Award six times ('71, '72, '74, '76, '77, '80). He also helped lead the Lakers to five NBA championships, winning one with the Bucks earlier in his career. His five All-NBA Defensive Team selections also further proved his versatility and ability to get it done on both ends of the floor.
Not too shabby, to say the least.
