www.basketball-reference.com lists certain guys as "active" whom I no longer think are active (Tracy McGrady, Juwan Howard), so I sorted them out. I also will keep on Marcus Camby (recently cut) and Lamar Odom, since I think they both WANT to play....
Kobe + 6343 on KG, 31,617 points
Ray Allen 23,804
Nash +2293 on Andre Miller 10,249 assists
Andre Miller +2069 on third place guy, 7,956
Kobe (!?!?!) 5,887
Parker (has played 100+ more games than James, has fewer assists) 5,247
Deron Williams 5,241
Jason Terry (!?!?!?!) 4,152
KG + 724 on Duncan 13,843
Duncan +3706 on Camby 13,219
Dwight Howard 9,017
Tyson Chandler 7,168
Career WS/48 (minimum 4,800 minutes played)
Chris Paul .244
How about Chris Paul! More productive on a per-minute basis than even LeBron. Paul and James both have the benefit of not having any declining years to calculate in. Kobe's 9th place finish is evidence of how the media has overrated his career. He is not even the #1 off guard on the list, and if you call Ginobili an off guard, Kobe is 3rd!
Career Win Shares (total)
Ray Allen 141
Paul Pierce 138.4
(Vince is next, but he should really be ashamed of the fact that with his talent and age he isn't top 10).
We will revisit at the end of the season and see if there is substantial movement. The KG/Duncan battle is interesting on rebounds and total Win Shares.
The points list tells you how many years you need to play to even breach the top 10 of the ACTIVE list. James and Melo average around 25 PPG, yet they are a looooooooooooong way from reaching the top 10 all-time points list, which would require roughly 27,000 points for the NBA-only list and 27,400 points for the NBA/ABA list.
KG is #7 on the career Win Shares list, but he would need 87 (!) more to surpass Kareem.....wow. LeBron James has had one of the most storied 10 year careers in the history of the game. He needs 121 more Win Shares to pass Kareem. 121 - so roughly 6 more MVP-level seasons of 17 Win Shares, plus a nice all-star level 9 Win Shares season. That will never happen.
