Derrick Rose: Check back in 7-8 years, and D-Rose will probably be in the top 10 of this list. Just 22 years old and three years into his career, and Rose already has a MVP. He's probably the most explosive athlete at the PG position the NBA has ever seen. The only concern I have for his future is he attacks the rim so hard and so often that he will always be at risk for serious injuries.
Eddie Jones: Jones had an incredibly long and productive NBA career. He was efficient and a do-it-all player. If I factored the 1998 and 1999 seasons into this list, he'd definitely make the cut and probably make the top 40.
Brent Barry: This guy is the definition of always solid, never great. Barry was solid night in and night out, but never a star player. He gets bonus points for being a key reserve on two championship teams.
Richard Jefferson: RJ has always been a good scorer and capable of being the No. 3 option on a championship team. He never really got that chance, but don't let that hide the fact that this dude could play; career averages of 16.4 PPG and 5.0 RPG speak for themselves.
Antawn Jamison: 'Tawn is a spoiled baby and has never been a winner, but he has always been a versatile and at times dominant frontcourt player. His athleticism and ability to shoot at his size (6'9") have always made him a tough matchup.
Dikembe Mutumbo: Mutumbo's best seasons were all in the 1990's, but don't overlook his three All-Star appearances and Defensive POY award in the new millennium. He was never a scorer, but he could D-up and rebound his entire career.
Reggie Miller: Miller's prime was in the 1990's as well, but he still put together three great offensive seasons in the 2000's. His shooting actually got better with age, but his body prevented him from being what he once was.
Latrell Sprewell: Perhaps known more for his antics than his impressive offensive numbers (18.3 career PPG), Sprewell is actually one of the more underrated players in recent memory. Sure, he never won anything significant, but you can't hate the dude—he just wants to feed his family.
