ESPN’s list of the NBA’s all-time top point guards has a Hoosier presence.

Magic Johnson is No. 1 on the list, followed by Crispus Attucks High School legend Oscar Robertson.

Rounding out the top five are John Stockton, Stephen Curry and Indiana University national champion Isiah Thomas.

Johnson has an issue with the order, saying there’s “no way” Thomas should be behind Stockton and Curry.

Robertson led Attucks to 1955 state high school championship, marking the first time an all-African-American team won an open state prep title. He averaged a triple-double in the 1961-62 NBA season, was the MVP in ’63-64 and won an NBA title in 1971.

Thomas led the Hoosiers to the 1981 national championship. He won two titles with the Detroit Pistons. He also coached the Indiana Pacers.
