This list, put together by Fox Sports, aims to answer the question of who the best basketball player in history is. While some may consider that a futile quest (it’s got to be Jordan, right?), others realize Michael Jordan can’t be numbers one through twenty. So, who are the others?

To decide this list, two major characteristics were considered: dominance in the sport (not just being a consistently good player, but absolutely killing it over everyone else) and longevity (no one-season stars on this list). So who made the list of 25 best players in NBA history? Read on for the results.
