So it’s the 75th anniversary of the NBA, and the league decided to choose the top 75 best players to have ever played the game.  Although the NBA didn’t rank them from first to last, others have taken the NBA’s picks and placed them in order from least to the greatest.  So, when it comes to Brain Type, what’s the tally?  As can be seen below, the first dominant Left brainer doesn’t appear until #38 with Rick Barry (#15 FCIL), and, despite their commonality in the NBA, there are not many #13 FCIRs on the list.

Although we left a few players and their Types out (need more information), the list is quite comprehensive and insightful.  We hope you enjoy it.
