The list of the NBA's 75 best players is officially complete, and as expected, there has been a lot of discussion regarding who should and shouldn't have made the cut.

There were a number of names that were left off the list despite having a strong claim for inclusion. The NBA is home to global stars drawn from all continents on the planet, a major reason why the top 75 list was always going to raise eyebrows amongst the NBA faithful. 

The NBA also happens to be one of the most popular sports amongst betting fans, and Asians in particular have been following these global stars and wagering on Bongdalu, one of the leading bookmakers from Vietnam. 

Without wasting any more time, let’s look at some of the most notable omissions from the penultimate list.

Dwight Howard

It feels like a crime to leave Dwight Howard off this list. There's no way he's going to be left out.
We are all too aware that Dwight's career has been one of the most perplexing in history. 

He was not the most popular figure for everyone’s liking; he's had some really nasty moments and has spent a significant portion of his career being mocked by Shaq and Kobe Bryant.

However, facts are facts. This guy was previously regarded as one of the world's top two or three players. 

That is shown in his resume. Defensive Player of the Year three times. Led a squad to the championship game. Eventually won a title. He's accomplished almost everything.

Kyrie Irving

For a variety of reasons, Kyrie Irving is a highly divisive player. But no one can deny that he is a fantastic basketball player.

You can't discuss this era of basketball without mentioning Kyrie Irving. He's made three trips to the NBA Finals and is capable of producing a championship as well as one of the most spectacular shots ever seen.

He's only been selected to three All-NBA teams, but he's been an All-Star seven times and has one of the best handles we've ever seen. This guy is deserving of your attention.

Pau Gasol

Pau Gasol was the undisputed second best player on those Lakers teams that went to the Finals three times in a row in the 2010s. He was under-appreciated and undervalued at the time, but his work spoke for itself.

Along with his two championships in Los Angeles, he was named to six All-Star teams and four All-NBA teams. Talk about having an impact.

Vince Carter

To begin with, Vince Carter spent 21 seasons in the NBA. That alone, I believe, is adequate to place someone in the Top 75. For that long, NBA teams thought he was deserving of a roster spot.

He also appeared in eight All-Star games during his prime and is without a doubt the best dunker of all time. That's got to count for something, right?

Draymond Green

How can you mention the best teams in NBA history without mentioning Draymond Green?

In 2016, he was the defensive lynchpin for the Warriors' 73-9 record, scoring 30 points in Game 7 of the Finals, a game in which he would have easily won the Finals MVP if they had won.

He has also earned the Defensive Player of the Year title and is a three-time champion. That's more than some of the people on the list can claim.
