Top Ten NBA PLayers
10. Kevin Durant:
He is one in a million basketball player. Kevin is tall enough to play the center position as yet he decided to play his own game. He, with his long arms, it is almost impossible to block his jump shot as he is trying to play outside the paint.
9. LeBron James
James is currently the best player. Despite missing the 2019 NBA Playoffs after, he joined the Los Angeles Lakers, we can’t push aside what James had accomplished over the past few years. James also led the Miami Heat and even Cleveland Cavaliers to multiple championships.
8. Kobe Bryant
His farewell game is probably the best one to date as his team won that game and he also scored 60 points. Also, Kobe was on fire during that game, everything that he threw would go straight to the bottom of the net, especially which is in the fourth quarter.
7. Shaquille O’Neal
He is the most efficient player and best one to accomplish the most important things in his NBA career. He would do his work his way around an opponent in the post with his superb footwork, Shaq would use his extraordinary bulk 7’1″ and 315 pounds to bully his way.
6. Wilt Chamberlain
He also played at a time when the post players were significantly much younger, and NBA wasn’t drawing athletic players we see today, but this man was so incredibly dominant that he often deserves a spot in the top five regardless of any context. Four highest all-time NBA single season scoring averages all of them belong to Chamberlain
5. Hakeem Olajuwon
He is regarded as the most skilled big man in the history of the game of basket, Hakeem Olajuwon’s dominance, which is on the inside was a thing of beauty. Also, he abused many a defender with his trademark “Dream Shake” move.
4. Larry Bird
Larry Bird was never the most athletic player on the court, but Bird was always dominant. He lacked in athleticism, as he made up for with his basketball IQ, excellent skills that includes that deadly jump shot and fierce competitiveness.
3. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Kareem was a formidable force who dominated the sport for almost two decades, and they perfected the sky hook. He has one of the gorgeous shots the game has ever seen. He was most hilarious in Airplane! And he fought Bruce Lee in the Game of Death, his cool quotient is also easily the highest of anyone on this list.
2. Magic Johnson
He is one of the most enthusiastic personalities that is ever to ever play in the NBA, Johnson’s charm was the primary factor in the massive increase in the league’s popularity during the year 1980s. He was so much more than a dazzling smile.
1. Michael Jordan
He is a living legend in basketball that every time he had the ball, all the audiences knew that something great would surely happen. Air Jordan rarely failed all of his countless fans worldwide. He is an all-around player.
