Top Ten Best NBA Players of the 2020-21 Season

Basketball is back already. That means the best players are back. This list will include the best players of the 2020-21 season. These players have huge expectations and have shown they can fill these expectations. This list will gradually be updated.
The Top Ten
1 Kevin Durant Kevin Wayne Durant is an American professional basketball player for the Brooklyn Nets of the National Basketball Association. He has played for the Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors, and the Nets. He was MVP of the 2017 and 2018 NBA Finals.

Kevin Durant is back and doesn't it feel good. Kevin Durant is uber talented and he has so much skill. I have no doubts when it comes to his talent. He just needs to stay healthy and I think he has a legit shot at MVP. He is in the conversation for best player after this year.

2 Giannis Antetokounmpo Giannis Antetokounmpo is a Greek professional basketball player for the Milwaukee Bucks of the National Basketball Association.

Giannis is a superstar when it comes to the regular season. He is an absolute beast actually and he will be looking to win a third straight MVP this year. If he can improve his passing ability and just become more creative in terms of his handles, that could go a long way in the Playoffs.

3 Luka Dončić

Luka is the next big thing. I think we are looking at the potential GOAT. He is so much more talented than everyone else that it's actually kinda stupid. Luka will be the best player someday. He is my pick for MVP this year.

4 Kawhi Leonard Kawhi Anthony Leonard is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association. He has played for the San Antonio Spurs, Toronto Raptors, and the Clippers.

Kawhi is still the best two way player in the game. He did definitely dissapoint in the Playoffs, as the Nuggets knocked them out and Kawhi played horrible. Could just be a minor setback in his path to succeed LeBron as the best player.

5 Anthony Davis Anthony Marshon Davis Jr. is an American professional basketball player for the New Orleans Pelicans of the National Basketball Association.

AD is about to take the mantle from LeBron on LA. He proved last year he is a top ten talent. Perhaps a little underrated. AD should have won DPOY last year, but of course they don't like giving Lakers awards anymore.

6 LeBron James LeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association. LeBron has played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat, and the Lakers.

LeBron will hold the best player in the league title for at least one more year. He will most likely take a small break for the beginning of the season and he honestly deserves it. He is the GOAT in my opinion and he'll be back to lead the Lakers in another potential Finals run.

I think that he looks is in the top three best players ever

7 Stephen Curry Wardell Stephen Curry II is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association. Many players and analysts have called him the greatest shooter in NBA history. He is one of the most beloved, as well as hated, stars in the NBA today.

Stephen Curry is back fully healthy. I will make the same prediction as last year. If Curry leads this team to the West Playoffs without Thompson, I think he will be MVP. If not then he will fall more on this list.

scored 62 points

8 Damian Lillard Damian Lamonte Ollie Lillard is an American professional basketball player for the Portland Trail Blazers of the National Basketball Association.
9 James Harden James Edward Harden, Jr. is an American professional basketball player for the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association.

James Harden took a step back this year in my opinion. There are now reports he wants out in Houston and it has really turn into a mess. One of the last things I expected. Still he is one of the best offensive players in the league and he is always a candidate for MVP.

10 Donovan Mitchell
The Contenders
11 Jimmy Butler Jimmy Butler III is an American professional basketball player for the Miami Heat of the National Basketball Association. Born in Houston, Butler grew up in Tomball, Texas, and attended college at Marquette University.
12 Kyrie Irving Kyrie Andrew Irving is an American professional basketball player for the Brooklyn Nets of the National Basketball Association. He has played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics, and the Nets.

Kyrie is back. In the few games we saw him last year, he was absolutely nuclear. He is uber talented, but he just needs to stop being so cocky and arrogant.

13 Zion Williamson
14 Ben Simmons Benjamin David Simmons is an Australian professional basketball player for the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association.

Ben Simmons is going to surprise some people I think. He finally has good shooters and a great coach around him and I think he can work with that. Ben Simmons may take a huge step and win MVP.

15 Russell Westbrook Russell Westbrook Jr. is an American professional basketball player for the Washington Wizards of the National Basketball Association.
16 Bol Bol

Just wait. Bol Bol is coming

17 Jayson Tatum
18 Pascal Siakam
19 Paul George Paul George is an American professional basketball player for the Indiana Pacers of the National Basketball Association.
20 Karl Anthony Towns
21 Nikola Jokic Nikola Jokić is a Serbian professional basketball player for the Denver Nuggets of the National Basketball Association.
22 Joel Embiid Joel Hans Embiid is a Cameroonian professional basketball player for the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association.
23 Bam Adebayo
24 Kyle Lowry Kyle Lowry is an American professional basketball player for the Toronto Raptors of the National Basketball Association.
