Kobe #12 All-Time. Fair or Foul? (2:17)

Kevin Pelton and Kevin Arnovitz assess the #NBArank of one of the most polarizing figures in the NBA (2:17)

We're up to the best of the best. All-Time #NBArank rolls on with Players 11-15 in our Top 100 countdown.

To create All-Time #NBArank, we put together a ballot with the 150 greatest players ever. Then our ESPN expert panel voted on thousands of head-to-head matchups, with voting based on both peak performance and career value. The result is our all-time NBA Top 100.

We have already announced players 16-20, 21-25, 26-30, 31-35, 36-40, 41-45, 46-50, 51-60, 61-70, 71-80, 81-90 and 91-100.

The top 10 will be revealed next week.

Also, check out our positional rankings of the 10 best point guards, shooting guards, small forwards, power forwards and centers of all time.

On to the list ...
