With the sports world on hold, athletes are taking to Twitter debating all sorts of topics. Trae Young’s latest tweet has sparked a hotly-contested NBA conversation.
The Atlanta Hawks guard posted a bold all-time top five NBA players list on Monday night. Some of the players included are surprising.
Young ranks LeBron James as his top NBA player of all-time followed by Michael Jordan – those two come as no surprise, though, the order is often debated. The late Kobe Bryant is third on the list – again, not much of a surprise.
But Kevin Durant and Steve Nash fall fourth and fifth on Young’s bold list. While both are elite players, few tend to agree they’re worthy of a top five all-time status. Young’s ranking can be found below:
MY TOP 5…
5. Steve Nash

Durant is without a doubt one of the most skilled players in the NBA today. But it still feels like he’s got a ways to go before we start even considering him a top 10 all-time player, let alone top five.
On the other hand, while Nash is one of the best point guards to ever play, considering him a top 5 all-time NBA player is absurd.
At least Young is giving everyone something to talk about while the sports world is on hold.
