Ranking The 30 Greatest Players In NBA History From #30 To #1

28. Scottie Pippen – Chicago Bulls/Portland Trail Blazers – Small Forward



Every great player needs the “Robin” to his “Batman.” Fortunately for Michael Jordan, his “Robin” also happens to be one of the greatest players to ever play the game. Pippen was a monster on the defensive end, with the ability to guard multiple positions effectively. His unselfishness on offense complemented Jordan well, but make no mistake, Scottie could score the basketball if need be.

27. Jason Kidd – New Jersey Nets/Phoenix Suns/Dallas Mavericks – Point Guard



He wasn’t the star he once was when he finally captured the ever-elusive NBA championship in 2011, but Kidd still found ways to contribute. Kidd’s longevity and ability to stay relevant despite his waning athleticism is a key reason he will be remembered as an all-time great. Few who played the game evolved as well as Kidd did throughout his career. In his heyday, Kidd could run and gun with the best of them. He was an all-time great passer, as well as an elite defender and rebounder at the point guard position.
