NBA 75 team: Full list of players revealed as league celebrates 75th anniversary season

Get ready to embrace debate, folks. The NBA 75 list is here. As part of its 75th anniversary celebration, the league will be releasing a list featuring the 75 greatest players in NBA history during the first week of the 2021-22 season. A similar list was compiled ahead of the 1996-97 season to honor the 50 greatest players of all time, but given the amount of talent that has come through the league since then, it's possible a few players from the original top 50 will lose their spots.
