The Top Ten

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

Antetokounmpo has had an amazing season. He has led the Bucks to a 29-12 record for 2nd seed in the East. He is averaging 26.7 Points on 67 percent shooting from two. He is also averaging 12.8 Boards. If he could just increase his atrocious 16 percent from three than maybe he would be the best player in the league, but so far he has clearly been the most valuable player. - 2storm

2 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 still the best player in the league. LeBron may be injured at the moment, but he is still having quite a heck of a season. If he wasn't injured he would be number. He just makes his team better. He is still averaging 27.3 Points. Plus the Lakers were on a hot streak before he went out. - 2storm

Overall he always the best

3 James Harden James Harden James Edward Harden, Jr. is an American professional basketball player for the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association.

James Harden is averaging a career high and league high in points with 34.1 Points. At the moment I am making this he is on a streak of 15 straight games with 30 or more points. The Rockets are currently the 5 Seed and could easily take the number 1 Seed in the West. - 2storm

Paul George has had a insane season. He is a legit MVP candidate. His averaging a career high in Points, Rebounds, and Steals with 26.9, 8, and 2.2 respectively. He has stepped up for Russell Westbrook who is not having the best season. The Thunder are 25-16 for the 4th Seed in the West, because of that. - 2storm

I think Jokic is overrated, but he deserves some credit for getting this team to the 1 Seed in the West. - 2storm

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

Kyrie has been pretty good with the Celtics. He is averaging a career high in Steals, Assists, and Rebounds with 1.6, 6.4, and 4.8 respectively. It's funny that he wanted to leave Cleveland to lead a team, but the season before he left averaged a career high in points. But this season he is averaging 3 points less. - 2storm
