Here Is The Complete NBA 75 Greatest Players List

The NBA has been steadily unveiling their list of the 75 greatest players for the league’s 75th anniversary, and on Thursday the final 25 players were revealed. While it was technically a completely new list from the NBA at 50 list, all 50 players from the initial list made it on this year’s version, which wasn’t a big surprise given a number of those who voted made clear they felt no one should be taken off.

While there were a number of current players that made the 75 list, it was also a chance to right some wrongs from the NBA at 50 list, most notably the exclusions of Dominique Wilkins and Bob McAdoo, who each got a spot on the final 25 to the delight of the NBA on TNT crew.

Also new to the list is Dwyane Wade, who joined the Inside crew on Thursday to talk about what it’s like to see his name added to the list.

Here are the final 26 players added on Thursday (there was a tie in the voting), as well as the 50 others already names.
