Top Ten NBA Players of the 2012-2013 Season

The Top Ten

1 Lebron James 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 is an amazing player. He is simply the cristiano Ronaldo of nba

He dominates the game without scoring.. He is involved in almost all the points of the team.. He can score if he wants to but he has a pass first mentality.. In my opinion the most dominantly versatile player in the NBA today..
Simply one of the most gifted, all-around players ever to walk the planet. I respect all the other great players out there, but for now, LeBron is the best present player and will soon extend his reign into all-time top tens

Lebron is very close to be like Michael Jordan I mean he already has 4 MVP'S and 2 Finals MVP's at the age of 28 he still got more years and contracts to earn more mvp's and more championships he's doing a great job with D. Wade C. Bosh and the rest of the team... I really hope he gets to beat Michael Jordan and make it to the top player of NBA history

People who didn't vote for lebron are simply wrong b/c there's only 1 answer here. I'm not even a lebron fan but you gotta see it like it is, he's shooting 56% on the year... ...more

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. - Lebron336

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.

2 Kevin Durant 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.

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.
- Lebron336

He proves time after time that shooting is the most important aspect of basketball.

Amazing player. Stats are off the charts and he has lead the team to an amazing run, from a lottery team to a final contender team, amazing! LeBron isn't as good of a free throw shooter or shooter at all as Durant is. Durant has in-the-paint game like no other. The long arms bring him inside strength and general strength, he may not be a "locomotive" but he plays just like George Gervin and if you take him into consideration, a scoring Magic Johnson. Also a reigning 3 in a row scoring champ! Best player by far! - NBASuperstar35

3 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.

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

Kobe is better than LeBron.
LeBron nut sucking fans like to call Kobe Bryant overrated for not being to bring his team with Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol and Steve nash to a higher seed, but people don't realise how much injuries this team have to deal with.
The Lakers are playing without Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol for 1/4 of the season, Steve Nash isn't even a factor anymore, he's just a spot up shooter, a role player at best.

To average 27 points, 6 assists and 5 rebounds, shooting 47% at the age of 34, it's truly remarkable.

LeBron have Dwyane Wade (which is not fully healthy, but compare to the Lakers injuries, his is nothing)
Chris Bosh and Ray Allen that are completely healthy, Ray Allen might just be a role player on the Miami Heat right now, but he is the one that's hitting big clutch shots, not LeBron.

4 Chris Paul Chris Paul Christopher Emmanuel Paul is an American professional basketball player for the Oklahoma City Thunder of the National Basketball Association.

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. - Lebron336

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.

He is the best point guard in the NBA ever and I am one of his biggest fan and no one can be the best like him!

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

Sometimes banged up D-Wade still is a great scorer. He has an inside game, beats you outside, blocks shots, passes well, and rebounds - Lebron336

Faster, quicker. And not boastful. I think he's yeah. He is better

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

Wade without his knee problems is number one on the list. LeBron and Wade without a doubt are the two best players
And two most athletic players. He is a 3x champ. Wade is the best driver in the NBA too. He can pass and rebound and
He is number 1 in history in shooting guard blocks per game (1.3)

6 Carmelo Anthony Carmelo Anthony Carmelo Kyam Anthony is an American professional basketball player for the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association.

"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. - Lebron336

Carmelo is a beast, great scorer

He is a beast, a prolific scorer, a monster

Carmelo should be number 4 he is way better than Rondo Go the Knicks and Carmelo They both rock

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

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.

Rusell westbrook is best point guard

That guy is the best and one of the youngest basketball players. When he grows up, I know he will be the next Michael Jordan and dominate the league.

HE IS THE ONE

Best basketball player ever

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.

9 Derrick Rose Derrick Rose Derrick Martell Rose is an American professional basketball player for the Minnesota Timberwolves of the National Basketball Association.

10 Stephen Curry 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.

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

I think Stephen curry is the best basketball player in the world except for Michael Jordan or maybe magic Johnson and that's all the basketball players that's better then Stephen curry.

The Contenders

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

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

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. - Lebron336

He is great! He can Dunk and block incredibly well! Just his shoting even though he got a 3 point once

Should be number 6 on the list he's the best center in the game today

12 Tony Parker Tony Parker William Anthony Parker Jr. is a French professional basketball player for the San Antonio Spurs of the National Basketball Association.

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

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.

13 Rajon Rondo Rajon Rondo Rajon Pierre Rondo is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association.

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. - Lebron336

Most assists plus good point average

A man that can coop whenever he wants to

He is the best player of all drafts. He got the skill of assisting and threats. The little guy can run really fast. That's how he became best assister of history! Bow down to him bow down - Krikey

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

LeBron #1 really not

15 Andre Iguodala Andre Iguodala Andre Tyler Iguodala is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association.

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

He's nowhere even close to 13, like 25

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.
