All professional athletes are competitive. However, we all know that some are more competitive than others; they simply seem to have that “killer instinct” that other players lack. This killer instinct is not something that can be learned – you either have it or you don’t and the fans all know who has it and who is lacking it. This is what separates the great players from the all-time great players – the desire to win at all costs and to do everything and anything needed to achieve that goal.
This week, the Sports Unbiased writers were tasked with ranking their top-3 all-time competitive NBA players. Because competitiveness is something that can only be seen and not read on a stat-sheet, the list was kept to players they actually saw play.
The writers taking part this week are Rich Stowe, JR Williams, Jerome Goudine, Kimani Gregoire, Sammie Wright, and Adam Solowiei. Each writer ranked their top-3 players and provided reasons why they chose each player. Then, points were awarded based on the ranking (three points for first place, two for second, and one for third).
Only five players were ranked. Let’s start with the player that finished in fifth place.
Up next: 5th Place
