It should be no surprise that an ESPN poll found that Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant are the greatest shooting guards ever. MJ received 200 votes out of a possible 200, Bryant 170. But buried among "others receiving votes" are one current and one former Net. Vince Carter received two votes froma panel of ESPN writers while Drazen Petrovic received one. Carter's total would tie him for 20th all-time. However, one veteran NBA writer notes an omission in the Top 10: Super John Williamson.
