    Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain, esp. Chamberlain (and you could include George Mikan) - large, dominant shot blocking, scoring centers

    Julius Erving - Dr. J - high-flying, slam dunking style of basketball

    Larry Bird and Magic Johnson - terrific all around great players

    Oscar Robertson - scoring point guard

    Michael Jordan - incredibly popular player

    Not a huge NBA fan, but these are some of the main players I would say shaped the game and league and made it popular
