On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the release of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History, which was also the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the National Basketball Association, fourteen broadcasters employed by the American television network Turner Network Television (TNT) released a list of the Next 10 Greatest Players. The panel, which included four former players and two panelists who voted on the initial NBA list, considered contemporary players who were unestablished in 1996 and historical players not already included on the original list. Released on February 18, 2006, the ranked list was presented in conjunction with the NBA's 2006 All-Star Weekend.
