Debating the NBA's 75 greatest players list: Snubs, surprises and the best of the best

As part of the celebration of the NBA's 75th season, the league unveiled its list of the greatest players in its history over a three-day span in opening week -- a list that ended up having one extra name due to a tie in voting. Every player who made the league's 50th anniversary team in 1996 was also included on this list, along with 26 new names ranging from Bob McAdoo (who debuted in 1972 and was considered one of the biggest snubs from the 50 greatest list) to Giannis Antetokounmpo, the reigning Finals MVP who is still only 26 years old.

NBA's 75 greatest players of all time: The complete list so far

The NBA is celebrating its 75th anniversary all season long during 2021-22, and part of that celebration includes the unveiling of the list of the 75 greatest players in NBA history. It has been 25 years since the league unveiled its list of the 50 greatest players in NBA history, which tipped off a season-long celebration of the NBA's 50th anniversary in 1996. During halftime of the 1997 NBA All-Star Game in Cleveland, 47 of the 50 members of that team were honored in person. The 2022 All-Star Game is once again slated to return to Cleveland as a nod to that moment.
