The most decorated NBA players have earned a lengthy list of accolades to tack on to their respective resumes—everything from MVPs to All-Star appearances.
Like most sports, various awards are handed out every year to some of the best athletes at their respective positions and in a multitude of categories.
However, not all awards are created the same.
In order to rank NBA players based on the various awards and accolades bestowed upon them, a fair and balanced points system was needed.
So where does Kobe Bryant rank in all of this? Who will rank ahead between Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain? How about between Magic Johnson and Larry Bird?
Most importantly, who will top the list? Is it Michael Jordan or Kareem Abdul-Jabbar? Can a dark-horse candidate sneak in and claim top honors?
