The Top Ten

LeBron James
LeBron is by far the best in the world finally someone that CAN SAY THAT BRON IS WAY BETTER THAN KOBE THANK YOU
I was reluctant to believe that this man had what it took to win a championship after seeing him lose to the Mavericks this past post season. When I see him play now, I see hunger in his eyes. He is the reason The Heat are the Power house they are now. Both Defensively and Offensively creating not only his own shots but shot for his teammates as well. Bron is getting his ring. Whether it be Durant or Bryant they will not want to see this guy in the Finals.
Needs no explanation! Just watch him play!

2Kobe Bryant
Nobody compares to Kobe Bryant
Definitely! Kobe is not comparable to the idiot lebron james and durant! Kobe has accomplish a lot in the NBA... MJ and KOBE not kobe and lebron!
He is nasty and he has six rings he has swag and he is clutch

3Kevin Durant
Now the main reason that K D is on this list is because he can really score he is the youngest person ever to win back to back scoring titles that's not all he can do he can pass more often than not and he can rebound the great things about Kevin is because he is a great forward he can shoot any were on the court wether it's a dunk inside the paint or just plain out three point shots


Kevin durant you are the best player ever and you are better than lebron james and kobe brant and I wish that okc thunder will be the best
KD scored the most points in total for the 3rd time straight his release is one of the best releases in the NBA. He can play defense to and great at offense. He can steal, shoot, pass, block, dunk, and has great hustle.
Is there any thing he can't do?

4Carmelo Anthony
Carmelo is the best all around player he can create his own shot and is a good defender
The best in the NBA how could Kevin love and derick rose be better than carmelo
Because for yall that don't know he's the best basketball player ever bra and this dude represents knicks this was a poor topten list he should be 1 instead of that dude lebron he betrayed his team cleveland he should be ashamed

5Dwyane Wade
One of the most un-orthodox players in the nba he is so good at everything speed passes very good lebron and wade one of the best duo's in the nba
Dwyane wade is the best basketball player on earth even do he didn't accomplish his goals but he got it done d-wade is better than lebron james and kobe and mj
He is the best player for me. I like to watch him play and he's the best for me. Even though he isn't the number one, he is "THE FLASH" :))

6Derrick Rose
Derrick Rose is definitely the one of the top players in the NBA. He is recovering right now, but he will be back a better shooter and a better player. He is a really good player and I hope he recovers soon!
Derrick Rose the reining MVP is probably not going to have the same season he had last year on the offensive end but I think he is going to be passing a lot more


IĀ'm playing also basketball and I think he is a really big model for me I like to orientate on big guys so I can learn something from them.

7Chris Paul
His explosiveness is underrated. Before his knee surgery, he was just as quick as Derrick Rose. Now that derrick rose is coming off surgery himself, he'll experience the same effects, and Chris Paul will assert himself as the best PG in the league
He's a beast best ball handler in the league and he should be top 5 AND HE GETS CRAP CRAP CRAP CRAP why oh why can't you just realize that your dealing with the best poin guard in the league
Chris Paul is the best he hot the best Cross overs but I thin John Wall is Michael bryter thin all of them
More comments about Chris Paul

8Russell Westbrook

9Rajon Rondo
Rondo average an triple double 2 times come on really 11th contender necckk
He is a great player and should be the 5 best player
Best Point Guard in the NBA. What Point guard below 6'4 can grab 15 boards, 10 assist and 13 points per game because rose can't

10Kevin Love
Best rebounder ever he is a consistent shooter and won 3point contest Kevin love is a beast
Kevin love desrves his position lamar odom has nothing to do in the top ten, and saying that he is a mixture of loauwon and russell is absurd! He is nothing like them.
I love kevin he is king at 3's

The Contenders

11Paul Pierce

12Dwight Howard
Why do I need an opinion? He's good and he doesn't deserve first, but not last at all, plus you see his 3 points shots?
Dwight Howard is a mixture of Hakeem Olajuwon and Bill Russell the reason is is because he can block and rebound but he is a bit more like Bill Russell because he can rebound but can't really shoot Dwight isn't really an offensive player but he makes you for it on the defensive end he was 3 time NBA defensive player of the year and this year he'll probably be four time.


Still young but the best

13Chris Bosh
Best Centre in the Game!

14Blake Griffin
One of the dunkers alive and is becoming more versatile. I commend his hard work during his recovery. You can see it in his play of 2012 and I bet will continue in 2013. HE IS CARRYING THE CLIPPERS ALONG WITH CHRIS PAUL!

15Lamar Odom
I think he would be top 200

16Tony Parker

17Kyrie Irving
Kyrie is in the top ten for sure
Averaged 18 points per gam in his rookie season.

18Deron Williams

19Vince Carter
He is the best dunker in the world
That man is a dog

20Brian Scalbrine

21Jeremy Lin
Jeremy lin is a great point guard. I believe he will get better after playing more. He is amazing and will be the best point guard in the NBA one day. LINSANITY!

22Tyson Chandler

23Dirk Nowitzki
Best jumper in the history of nba

24Andre Iguodala
Andre Iguodala is better than Lebron. He can dunk, run and steal.

25Amar'e Stoudemire

26Tim Duncan

27Timofey Mozgov

28Tracy McGrady

29YuLe Pan

30Dexter Pittman

31Jason Kidd

40Mike Miller

41James Harden
Beest player ever strong, fast, best shots!

42Ray Allen
Best 3 point shooter
Best three point shooter
I think ray Allen should be better then Kobe. He has good form once it's out of his hands going in. Every pass is great against other teams.
