Top 25 greatest NBA players by position + other NBA rankings

Now that the NBA season has ended (and what a season it was!) now comes to time to revisit the top 100 greatest players of all time, as well as the top NBA players by position. I’ve decided to discard my old post on this since that post was made back in 2013, and this one has been updated through the new NBA season, with top 25 per position making a total of 100 players here.

These are all gleaned by my composite score for each player, all ranked by tallying their stats and awards together. You can download it here

I’ve also agreed with Rick Barry’s assertion that we should judge NBA players by position, because how can you compare Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain and definitively say one is better than the other when they play totally different positions? You can’t. So let’s go by position. Here’s the new list:

9. Derrick Rose (former MVP who was going to be one of the top point guards of his generation but tore his ACL and wasnt the same again)

My interest in guitar, Top 100 Greatest Electric Guitarists of All Time

Well, after all these ranking lists (like the 100 greatest NBA players ever), its time to talk about guitarists because well, I’m a guitarist and I’m self-taught so I’m influenced by a lot of different guitar players, and I want to make a list of the top 100 electric guitarists who I think are the best.

Beginnings
I started playing guitar after high school when I was 15. I remember starting with acoustic guitar, but then hearing a classmate play electric guitar was amazing, the first time I heard it, I thought wow I really want to have a tone like that. So my first guitar was a starter guitar package by Behringer back in 2005. I practiced for 2-3 hours every day after high school, so much so that my mom at one time (being a strict Chinese mother), locked away my guitar and laptop because she was so worried about me not studying. I played in two coffee houses events at my high school, at that time I was hugely influenced by Jimi Hendrix (clips downloaded off of Kazaa) and Jimmy Page (I watched the Led Zeppelin DVD numerous times) so I started trying to play guitar with my teeth, behind my back, behind my head etc for showmanship. This got me a lot of fans in my high school, and the first time I performed at the freshman talent show at the University of Toronto, I put on a display by doing all those tricks while playing Hendrix’s Voodoo Child. I would play in several battle of the band type shows after that, but haven’t really done many public performances since.

Influences
I had a few bands in high school and university, but didn’t perform that often. I played once in Barrie, Canada at a show and performed with university friends at a show at my university, but thats about it. 2005-2007 I was hugely influenced by blues and rock guitarists like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimmy Page, then started playing piano in 2008, and was influenced by classical composers like Chopin and Liszt. Around 2009 I bought an acoustic and started to play more pop songs. I was hugely influenced by John Mayer, my favorite contemporary electric guitarist. Around 2010 I was obsessed with the Beatles and played a lot of Beatles songs, 2012 John Mayer’s Born and Raised came out and I was quite influenced by that as well. And from then on I played a mix of pop/rock/fusion/jazz songs whatever I like to listen to, I like to play. Recently I’ve been quite into jazz guitar, the likes of Larry Carlton, Django Reinhardt, Wes Montgomery and finger picking styles used by Chet Atkins.

Gear

My guitar of choice was and still is, the Fender Stratocaster. I first started with a Behringer beginner guitar in 2005 (which I painted to look like Hendrix’s Monterey strat sometime in 2006), then 2006 moved onto a G&L Tribute S500. Around 2009, I got myself an Ovation acoustic, my first acoustic guitar. Around 2010 I got myself a Fender Roadworn Stratocaster and swapped out the pickups first for Tonerider pickups (quite good value), then for actual handwound pickups from a guy in Virginia (Rumpelstiltskin Pickups). In 2012, I bought myself a really good acoustic guitar, the Martin OMJM. Then in 2014, I bought a Gretsch White Penguin. In 2015 I bought a Boho Moonshine (unique oil can guitar). You can see these in all my Youtube videos. But I think out of all my guitars, I will keep just the Fender and the Martin, those are the ones I play the most.

As for Amplifiers, of course I prefer tube amps like many people, but more specifically small Class A vintage style tube amps for their nice clean tone and easy breakup and portability. In 2005 I started with the Behringer practice amp, then in 2006 got a Vox Valvetronix 30, which was also a solid state amp but had a pre-amp tube to simulate tube power. In 2009, I got my first Tube amp, a Class A Epiphone Valve Jr, but the tone wasn’t to my liking, so in 2010 I switched to a Traynor YCV40 which is an actual Class AB big Tube amp which in 2011 I swapped out the speakers for Celestion Alnico Blues to make it more vintage and clean sounding. In 2012, I bought a Swart Atomic Jr, which is still the amp I use today. It’s perfect, small, portable, hand-wired class A tube amp that only weighs 14lbs and has a built in reverb which is nice.

I’m not going to talk too much about pedals, because I’ve used so many. But I have owned various pedals from Digitech, Boss, Electro Harmonix, BBE, Visual Sound (now Truetone), Dunlop, etc. Since 2014, I have used mostly boutique pedals from the likes of Xotic, Maxon, Keeley, Wampler, Seymour Duncan, Catalinbread.

Top 10 Greatest FPS (First person shooter) games of all time

Top 10 greatest FPS games of all time

1. Half-Life (1998)
This is my pick for #1 FPS of all time, because although Doom pioneered the FPS genre, Half life perfected it. It introduced an actual story, a script, player-NPC interactions, and made the game feel almost believable. Even though Half Life 2 improved upon this even more, I think Half Life’s influence cannot be understated, this is the greatest FPS game of all time.

2. Doom (1993)
Doom could be #1, because it is the original game that popularized the FPS genre. Sure, Catacomb Abyss, Ultima Underworld and Wolfenstein 3D came before it, but Doom was the game that made people realize that games were no longer just platformers and arcade style shooters. It was violent, it had a revolutionary engine and it is the grandfather of all FPS games. Hail Doom!

3. Counter-Strike 1.6 (2000)
Originally a mod of Half Life, it became its own game and one of the most popular multiplayer games of all time. Everywhere in college dorms and internet cafes, CS was being played. This game set the standard for multiplayer matches and gameplay for virtually all FPS games after it, having weapon loadouts and 2 opposing factions.

4. Quake (1996)
Quake upped the ante on Doom with better textures and more sadistic weapons that weren’t based on the real world, but moreoever introduced multiplayer gaming and LAN parties to the public. Doom technically had multiplayer before but Quake made it popular. Quake also introduced the fast paced deathmatch style of play that would be found in every 90s FPS shooter since.

5. Halo: Combat Evolved (2001)
This was the game that sold the Xbox to the public and considered revolutionary in the FPS genre for a few reasons, first the game ditched health packs and carrying every weapon you find, to having a regenerating shield and a limitation of only being able to carry 2 weapons at a time, and secondly the ability to pilot vehicles. Both these innovations would appear in pretty much every FPS game after it.

6. Half-Life 2 (2004)
One of the greatest FPS games ever is also considered one of the greatest games of all time, period. Half life improved upon its successor with more of everything, with various styles of gameplay, puzzle-solving, and player-AI interaction, plus a new physics engine that really pushed the FPS genre as a whole. This game was considered the best game of the 2000s decade by a lot of publications.

7. Goldeneye 007 (1995)
The best FPS game on a console for the rest of the decade, Goldeneye combined a great story, and an incredibly fun multiplayer where you can play split screen 4 player, with various mods like the golden gun and paintball mode, this was along with Super Mario 64 the game that sold the Nintendo 64.

8. System Shock (1994)
The sci-fi RPG FPS game that built upon Ultima underworld and influenced System Shock 2, Dead Space, Deus Ex, Bioshock and a slew of other RPG/FPS hybrid games, this game was the original and was hugely influential in advancing the sci-fi genre.

9. Duke Nukem 3D (1996)
One of the first FPS games and the first popular FPS game to make use of a players voice, in addition to being able to interact with various items in the game. The player character had a personality which other games that came before it didn’t.

10. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (2007)
Revitalized the franchise and all modern FPS games by having realistic combat driven storyline set in modern day, great graphics, and a multiplayer that set the standard for all FPS games that came after it
