This Thursday, the NBA finished unveiling the list with the 75 best basketball players in the history of the league and in social networks it did not take long to notice the discomfort of the Argentine fans Manu Ginobili and spanish Pau Gasol by the absence of these two giants.
The selection, which is part of the activities and tributes that the North American basketball league is offering in the week of start of his 75th season, actually featured 76 players because there was a tie in the voting between two of the members of this elite list. All of these were chosen by a panel of current and retired NBA figures, coaches, executives, women’s league (WNBA) legends, and journalists.
Among the 76 figures that make up the list they accumulate 158 NBA rings, 730 selections for the All-Star Game (All-Star) and 110 MVP (Most Valuable Player) awards, in addition to having scored more than 1.5 million points.
