The NBA released a list of the 50 greatest players in NBA history in 1996. In the 15 years since then there have been several great players that deserve to be on the list. We took the time to update the list and add the great players from recent history.

50. Gail Goodrich

Gail Goodrich held a valuable role during the Lakers 1971-72 season where the team won a still-record 33 games consecutively, posted what was at the time the best regular season record in NBA history, and also won the franchise’s first NBA championship since relocating to Los Angeles.

Goodrich was the leading scorer on that team, averaging 18.6 points per game. He is also acclaimed for leading UCLA to its first two National Championships under the legendary coach John Wooden, the first in 1963-64 being a perfect 30-0 season.

In 1996, 17 years after his retirement from professional basketball, Goodrich was elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

49. Reggie Miller

Miller was known for his precision three-point field goal shooting, especially in clutch situations, most notably against the New York Knicks.

He retired with the then-record in most career three-point field goals made with 2,560. A five-time All-Star selection, he led the league in free throw accuracy five times and won a gold medal in the 1996 Summer Olympics.

Miller is one of five Pacers to have his jersey (#31) retired by the team. Miller was also selected for the Pacers’ 40th anniversary team in 2007.
