Best Basketball Players of 2013

The Top Ten

1 LeBron James LeBron James LeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association. LeBron has played for the Heat and the Cavaliers.

Lebron is amazing should be easily the number 1 player of the year MVP

Before its all over he may be the greatest ever. Never understood why haters hate on a humble young phenom like King.

You are my favorite basketball player I've ever seen

He is better than Stephen curry and kevin durant

2 Kevin Durant Kevin Durant Kevin Wayne Durant is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association. He was MVP of the 2017 NBA Finals.

Great young player and the scary part is, I think he has still yet to hit his prime. Since most people have come to accept that LeBron is the best player as of now, Durant will most likely be named MVP at the season's end. - Lakersfan97

HE IS THE TRUE BEST IN THE WORLD. AND KING JAMES IS NEXT IN THE LEAGUE
NO ONE CAN DEFEND HIM WHEN I COME 2 THE THUNDER WE ARE GOING 2 BE THE BEST IN THE LEAGUE 72-0 #2 FAN FOR KD you ARE THE BEST

He just rocks! Nobody can defend him when he's going to dunk! And don't even think the only thing he can do is dunk. He can handle the bal like a point gaurd. He can shoot from long range and is an amazing basketball player!

He is the best in 2014 he scores most points which is really good for the team he isn't a ball hog and he doesn't flop *cough* *cough* Lebron James *cough*
And he got MVP

3 Chris Paul Chris Paul Christopher Emmanuel Paul is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association.

It's obvious that he is a great player because the clips are struggling without him. - Lakersfan97

Chris paul uses his speed, athletics, ball handling skills, and his step back jumper to get the clippers to whatthey are

4 Dwyane Wade Dwyane Wade Dwyane Tyrone Wade Jr. is an American professional basketball player for the Miami Heat of the National Basketball Association.

As flash has reached his 30s, he has slowed down a bit. Still a great player, but has lost some of the hop in his step. - Lakersfan97

Dwyane not a top 10? KD should look at the stats. Dwyane's got more than 50 fg% while scoring 21 ppg, more than 1 steal pg and 1 block pg. And he's only a 'sidekick' Call me when James Harden will have those number. Best SG in the game last year, better than Kobe, even thoug I like Kobe but he shoots really too much. The Lakers don't play as a union. Kobe would maybe kick everybody's ass on a 1v1 but the Lakers finished 8th because they couldn't play as a team. So Wade better because he useful to his team and don't need to score 30 ppg, spending his time on the FT line like other (KD, Melo). - DWade45

5 Carmelo Anthony Carmelo Anthony Carmelo Kyam Anthony is an American professional basketball player for the New York Knicks of the National Basketball Association.

Underrated player, Carmelo Anthony has led the knicks to a remarkable record this season. Sure candidate for MVP. - Lakersfan97

He's my number 1 FAVORITE B-BALL PLAYER

6 Kobe Bryant Kobe Bryant Kobe Bean Bryant is an American retired professional basketball player. He played his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association. Kobe Bryant has won 5 NBA championships with the Lakers and is the all-time leading scorer in Lakers franchise history.

Yes, still at 34 years of age, I have Kobe Bean Bryant at number 2. He has put up amazing numbers this year and has even dropped his usual scoring role, to dish out many assists. He's the second greatest player of all time, behind Jordan of course. Of the lakers weren't struggling, my favorite player would be sure to bring home that coveted MVP trophy. - Lakersfan97

He's awesome compared to his age he's over 30

My opinion is kobe bryant is number one now he is still behind Michael Jordan and doctor dre his scoring has went down so as feild goals but his confidence has rose up lets go black mamba

Even at the age of 34 Kobe is still better than Lebron

7 Russell Westbrook Russell Westbrook Russell Westbrook Jr. is an American professional basketball player for the Oklahoma City Thunder of the National Basketball Association.

Has proven himself to be a great POINT GUARD this year by distributing the ball more. - Lakersfan97

8 Derrick Rose Derrick Rose Derrick Martell Rose is an American professional basketball player for the Chicago Bulls of the National Basketball Association.

Honestly, I think he's a top 5 talent, but he's been out te whole year. When he comes back though, I think he'll be te Adrian Peterson of the NBA. - Lakersfan97

No derrick rose is better than kobe he should be #3

He is better then lebron

D. Rose is #1 and he should be #1 on this chart

9 Kevin Love Kevin Love Kevin Wesley Love is an American professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association.

Kevin Love averages 17PPG, 12RPG.449 FG%,.352 3PT% in his career. He is a top tier scorer and his numbers speak for themselves on how dangerous he is as a player. He should be in the run for MVP

10 Kyrie Irving Kyrie Irving Kyrie Andrew Irving is an American professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association.

Has a lot of potential. I think he could be the best pg in the league a few years down the road. He has proven his scoring ability, but he needs to get his teammates involved more. - Lakersfan97

The Contenders

11 Dwight Howard Dwight Howard Dwight David Howard is an American professional basketball player for the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association.

Injuries aside, Dwight is the greatest center in the league. Also might be the biggest defensive presence in the league. - Lakersfan97

He is the best because he can dunk better than anyone
