Anthony Edwards offers his new top 5 NBA players of all time
This is not the first time Edwards has given his opinion on the best NBA players of all time. He has previously done the same and his opinion was not received well by the basketball fan community. However this time his list seemed to have changed a lot more than the previous one.
Upon being asked who he thinks are the top 5 NBA players of all time? Edwards answered by stating names like Michael Jordan, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal, and Allen Iverson. The fans still have a bit of a divided reaction to his take on the topic this time.
Some believe LeBron James should have been part of it, while others believe Iverson and Durant can be replaced. Here is the tweet:

Anthony Edwards’ previous top 5 NBA players of all time list were heavily criticized
About two months ago Anthony Edwards expressed his views on his top 5 NBA players of all time. This list was not accepted very well by the community and he has been heavily trolled and criticized for his opinion. This was the first top 5 NBA players of all time list of Anthony Edward went like this: Allen Iverson, Himself (Anthony Edwards), LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Shaquille O’Neal. This list was revealed in a tweet by bleacher report on X (formerly Twitter).
The reaction of fans was hilarious as they all thrilled and criticized Edwards’s take on this subject. Edward was mostly criticized for his noninclusion of legends of the game like Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. This criticism must have hit Anthony Edwards in the head as we see 2 months later his new list of top 5 NBA players of all time has changed.
Where’s Michael Jordan? Among others.

In his newer list, we can see that he has removed himself and LeBron James from his list and added Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant to it. I guess the wide range of criticism got to him and he changed his words.
