The NBA reveals its 76th list of legends to mark the 75th anniversary of its founding
Yesterday, the NBA revealed, on the occasion of its 75th anniversary, a list of 76 legends, including Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell and Kobe Bryant.
The selection of this list is part of the various celebrations held by the association on the eve of its seventy-fifth season.
The players were selected by a committee of current and retired league players, coaches, members of the technical staff, women's league players and journalists.
And 76 players were selected, not 75, and the association did not reveal the names of the players who tied for the last place.
The list included the equivalent of 158 league titles, 730 selections for the All-Star Game, 110 awards for the best player and more than 1.5 million points scored.
