The Top Ten

Lebron James
Lebron is an amazing player. He is simply the cristiano ronaldo of nba
In my opinion, Lebron has been the best player on the planet for a while now and I wouldn't count on that changing soon. He's a solid 3 point shooter, has a great post game, and can rebound extremely well for a player his height due to his superb strength. His passing skills are great plus he plays great D.


Lebron is the total package and will go on to do great things if he stays healthy and has a long career. In the end, I think the comparisons between him and Kobe will fade away and succumb to the debate between who is better, Lebron, or Jordan?

Although being better than Jordan is a stretch, in some ways he is already better now, but to reach that pinnacle, he has to accomplish as much.
[Newest]He is the best

2Kobe Bryant
Without any doubt he hás been the best since a long time ago and he still there. He just like a bottle of wine as old as it gets better he is... For Lebron, he is cool but but not yet a king, perhaps prince. He as a lot to prove and with the game he has, he ain't gonna do it, sorry this what I think. Kobe and MJ are unique players.
Kobe is the greatest of all time and still is the best. He's averaging 27.0 points,5.4 rebounds, and 6.0 assists per game at 34 years old. There is no other player in the NBA who competes like he does. He's done things this year that no other player has been able to do. He will lead the Lakers to the playoffs, and hopefully a championship.
He's simplu michael jordan's successor. He's the second best player of all times after MJ
[Newest]I would say that Kobe Bryant is one of the best ever. But, as it stands today injuries has taken a toll on him. He's had 3 season ending injuries, 3 seasons in a row. It's hard to be the best if you can't stay on the court.

3Kevin Durant
Durant is an excellent 3 point spot up shooter, his rebounding is incredible and his distribution skills have been constantly improving since last year. He is obviously the king.
KD is possibly the best shooter in the league and he's around 6'9 or 6'10. He's developed into a very good rebounder and can pass surprisingly well plus play good defense.


He proves time after time that shooting is the most important aspect of basketball.
[Newest]You're the best 😊

4Carmelo Anthony
"Melo" has shot the ball much more efficient and has started to pass more while showing signs of improvement on D. This guy is a dynamite scorer and sometimes is unstoppable.


Carmelo is a beast, great scorer
He is a beast, a prolific scorer, a monster
[Newest]Best of the best

5Chris Paul
THE best point guard in the NBA, Paul can pass amazingly well and could be one of
The best at stealing the ball. He shoots efficiently and is pretty athletic.


Chris Paul beat all of nba players with his 3points
CP3 can pass and score. He throws the second best alley-oops in the league and was the all-star game MVP.
[Newest]Without Blake griffin he would be ranked lower

6Dwyane Wade
Faster, quicker. And not boastful. I think he's yeah. He is better
Sometimes banged up D-Wade still is a great scorer. He has an inside game, beats you outside, blocks shots, passes well, and rebounds


Dwane is one of the best player in nba all time. He is not boastful and lebron and wade is good team. Keep it up dwane. Never give up
[Newest]You try your best

7Derrick Rose
Should be number 3 on the top 10 list
He is the fastest among the NBA players, He will rise to bring you down this 2012-13
Season and He is an all time MVP!
Anyone who doesn't play basketball but fans still talk about him should always be consider the best.
[Newest]Too Big! Too Strong! Too Fast! Too Good!

8Russell Westbrook
Russell Westbrook deserves to be in the top ten NBA players 2013-2013 season. He isn't afraid to go to the rim. And for a short man he can jump pretty high. He makes dunking look easy.
He was a very good point guard in the NBA.
I love his playing style, he is good enough to get the throne for the best of the best player in the nba.
[Newest]It seems like Russell is the fastest!

9Rajon Rondo
One of the craftiest players in the league Rondo can be a triple double threat with his eye popping passes. He also is a good defender and can get to the basket but occasionally struggles with his perimeter shooting.


Most assists plus good point average
A man that can coop whenever he wants to
[Newest]Rondo is my favourite player and is one of the most skilled players in the NBA. I think he is great at flick passes and setting up his teammates for shots.

10Tony Parker
He knows how to play even with small height he can make taller players feel shame!
No question. Led the Spurs to the Finals along with the young players and Timmy.
Best point guard for me
[Newest]Timothy Duncan is the best cause he knows what he's doing and gets along with the other team unlike the heat they don't like the san Antonio spurs. LeBron James is just a little cry baby. he cry when he looses and when he get hit in the face.

The Contenders

11Kyrie Irving
Kyrie has proved him self as an all star leading the Cav's since they lost James. At a number one draft pick he can ball handle, shoot (3pt contest), and make quick passes.
He is in top ten
I eat LeBron wishes he stayed with the CAVs now that they have Kyrie and the first draft pick! Team Kyrie all the way
[Newest]Best point guard in nba!

12James Harden
He's way better than dwight howard
Great hair...
Great beard...
Great basketball player...
Should easily be in the top 10 and on a good day he could be in the top 5
[Newest]James harden is a complete BEAST

13Dwight Howard
Great Shooter in the paint, gets rebounds, is very strong, and he can block shots. One other thing he does well is dunking really hard
He is great! He can Dunk and block incredibly well! Just his shoting even though he got a 3 point once
Obviously not a great shooter but can use his strength inside to score at will. Also, a premier rebounder and shot blocker he rules the post like a king.


14Stephen Curry
Curry is is a great shooter and is the best young shooter of his time
Stephen curry and derrick rose are my 2 favorite players I just want to be just like both of them but I like to shoot the ball more so... Curry is the best option
He should be top 10
[Newest]Easily the most clutch player in the Nba

15Paul George
Paulie G is a beast because of how versatile he is an he can catch up to the likes of Lebron and Carmelo
Because he can dunk over people
Definitely a top 25 player now and should be a top 10 in the near future
[Newest]LeBron #1 really not

16Tim Duncan
Timmy is playing like he is 24, he is helping his team to the best record in the NBA. Its on pace to win SIXTY games!
Tim Duncan is a great player. His post up moves are awesome.

17Chris Bosh
He is one of the best bigs in game
He's weak and afraid to play inside so he's not a big man Ducan is ten times better no matter the age. Deron Williams should be above also.

18Blake Griffin
He's should not be 15th 4th will do for him
Blake has a lot of potential, but his jump shot has a lot to be desired
His dunks & aly oops are awesome I'm inspired by him
[Newest]Come on guys you put Rondo in top 10 and you don't put Griffin?!?

19Damian Lillard
He plays basketball, old school.
Lillard is too clutch he makes new plays on the court and can cross his defenders with ease.
Should be in the top ten. great player

20Dirk Nowitzki
He is the best at fadeaway's and also he is also really good at 3's. He is good at both offensive and defensive.
Best leader and allround player still
Very good at 3's he's very cool! Dirkieboy

21Kevin Love
White men can't jump but he can rebound and score a lot.
My favorite player he is better then kobe in 1996
Power forward + 3 point shooter + post player + #1 fastbreak player = kevin love..

22David Lee
Key to the success of the warriors

23Andre Iguodala
After improving on his jump shot this summer, he is now the best player right now
Andre Iguodala is my number one favorite player, averaging a double-double most of the time, to a shooting guard, that's pretty impressive.
He's just an amazing player, funny he doesn't stay with a team for more than a year...his shot, dunk, and defense, impressing

24LaMarcus Aldridge

25Jrue Holiday

26Jeremy Lin
Lin is one of the best in the game, when he's in form

27Ray Allen
The best 3 point shooter ever
Ray allen one the oldest nba players right now but he's also a great finishers in nba
3 point master I recon he's the best 3s shooter

28Ricky Rubio
A point with a real Spanish flare to his game

29Nate Robinson
Nate Robinson one of the shortest dunkers of all time

30Mike Miller
He is one of the best 3 point shooters in the NBA

31Steve Nash

32John Wall
Crazy handles and can finish at the rim average of 18 points a game but looks bad because he is on the wizards

33Marc Gasol

34Klay Thompson

35Mario Chalmers
He is a really good point gaurd
Laugh out loud this guy sucks
No Way he should be like 76

36Kevin garnett
Garnett is one of those players you don't wanba play he will get in your face. He is a dynamic inside scorer and he can shoot a great mid range shot garnett can also set great screens and play great defense by either shot blocking or just causing you to miss he can also rebound the ball. He's older but can still play ball
The best power forward of all time

37Joe Johnson
I like him with All the clutch shots
Joe Johnson is the best! He can score from everywhere
Can shoot can pass he's better than this

38Paul Pierce
Like Kobe, Paul is a little past his prime, but man can he shoot
Paul Is a Loud Mouth
Paul pierce one of the best shot blockers in the nba

39Serge Ibaka
Serge Ibaka is the best blocker in the NBA averaging 3.0 blocks a game and possibly one of the best of all time, He also has some nice hops considering he has the record for the longest dunk. He plays good D is a big part of the OKC Thunder.
Hey ibaka your the best blocker in the nba
Pick your poison player with insane block abilities.

41Chris Anderson

42Brandon Jennings
Great player, speed, fun to watch

Can't believe Javale McGee is above this man. Excellent player for the Nets and in the NBA.
He is the 7 best the nba

47Jeff Green

48Kendrick Perkins
Has an exceptional inside presence

49Roy Hibbert
I say he is a great center 7 foot 2 and HE CAN REBOUND plus he is my favorite in the NBA
Hibbert is awesome he's 7'2 and averages more points and blocks than Bosh and gets twice as many rebounds

50Jason Terry

51Joakim Noah
Joakim Noah should definitely be higher in the list I do agree he is not as good as Derrick rose or Kenton James but he is definitely better than Dwight anddamian lillard!
Noah is better than Dwight!
He should have been waaay higher up, maybe in top to or at least in top 30. for god sakes!


52Avery Bradley

53Rudy Gay
Better than everyone in the nba. The fact that people are saying lebron is better is an outrage to the nba community. This guy has like a 2 story vertical and dunks on lebron with no legs. Best in the nba by far.
Rudy is a great player, he's kind of like a "Poor mans LeBron James. " He's a top 10 or top 15 AT LEAST.
He should be in the top ten because he have killed lebron and kevin Durant on the shot and in the drible and he dunks the ball crazy in th fast break.

54Tracy McGrady

55DeMarcus Cousins
Best raw big man with so much potential. Easily 20-10 guy year after year.
