As part of its 75th anniversary celebration this 2021-22 season, the NBA has officially unveiled the list of the greatest players in league history.

The league also compiled ahead of the 1996-97 season to honor the 50 greatest players of all-time in the NBA's 50th anniversary, and the original 50 players kept their spots.

The NBA 75th anniversary team was selected by a panel of media members, current and former players, coaches, and team executives.

Technically, the 75 greatest players of all time feature 76 players as a result of a tie, although the league did not disclose the voting results.

Check out the 75th anniversary team compiled by Bleacher Report in no particular order:

The list also includes loads of active players, including LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Kawhi Leonard, and Giannis Antetokounmpo.

LeBron's current Lakers teammates Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, and Carmelo Anthony also made it to the list.

Of course, the late great Lakers legend Kobe Bryant made it to the NBA's honorary list.
