I think Pierce and Wade are better than Drexler and Worthy. Am I wrong?

 

I think Drexler stays, Worthy can go!

 

I agree. Worthy goes.

 

Drexler was a 10 time All Star and 1 time Champ. Career average of 20.4 and 6.1

 

Worthy was a 7 time All Star and 3 time Champ. Career average of 17.6 and 5.1

Worthy had more rings, but that probably has more to say about Magic and Kareem than Worthy

 

Pierce is a 10 time All Star and 1 time Champ. Career average of 21.3 and 5.9

He should be on the list

 

Wade is 10 time All Star and 3 time Champ. Career average of 24.3 and 3.7

He should be on the list as well, however, like Worthy you have to give his teamates a lot of credit for those last two titles.

Wade beat the Mavericks by himself for his first title. None of those others won a title by themself.

It's hard to be able to say who goes off when I have only seen those players who were active in the 1980s to now play. I can't accurately assess how good those from the 70s and before were. My top 50 list would remove most of them but I know that isn't a logical list.
