    Best player in the NBA? Right now.


    Best single player, team-player relationship doesn't matter...

    my vote: Allen Iverson
    2nd: Lebron James

    I'd say Lebron. Iverson's fg% is never good, he turns it over a lot and does'nt seem to make others around him better.

    Iverson has become much better at distrubuting the ball. His assists were way up last year even though his teammates often miss open shots. Still Lebron James and Kevin Garnett are the best. The are just too complete and Iverson can never match them on rebounding ability.

    im a huge fan of d wade. granted he doesnt carry his team ala lebron but his numbers are all up, scoring, assists and rebounds. and he can only get better once the big man returns. wade and lebron are from a different planet. i still cant believe james is only what? 19? makes me feel like a failure in life and im 23! lol

    I dont know who the best is but the most over rated is Kobe Bryant.

    He basically ran shaq out of LA and what has he done on his own? Nothing.


    Like my friend ryan once said-

    "I'd rather have a 7 footer thats gonna get a lot of points and rebounds then a guy whos unpredictable and who is gonna hit a girl raw after the game."

    Most improved - Yao Ming, in a few years he'll be very very dominant.

    Most underrated: Chauncey Billups, no doubt

    You think? I still don't see it. He still fails to take it to the hoop strong and finish with authority. He doesn't seem to command the low post and since he is also slow he is NOT someone to be feared. Not like Shaq and not like Akeem Olajuwon used to be.

    he has his moments, I watched him play this year and he was much better (though the Rockets are a mess) - but in the 2nd half he returned to his former self which tries to finese and take charges.
    ridiculous when a 7-0 285 guy tries to flop

    I vote
    1. L. James
    2. T. Duncan
    3. K.G

    I think Yao is a damn good player but he needs to take a summer off and just build himself up, he plays every summer for the Chinese nat team. Also, sweetest pullup stroke Michael Redd, that guy has got some skills.

    Shawn Marion (Phoenix Suns) - 19 pts per game - 50+% from the field - almost 13 rebounds per game (3rd in NBA) - 2 steals & 2 blocks per game.

    Steve Nash. takes good shots, pushest the ball up the court everytime, and can pass the **** out of the ball.

    Oh yeah, can score and make his teammates look brilliant.

    doesn't anyone remember he was MVP last year?

    you got that right..

    Prince too.

    best right now though, I'd have to say Labron. Not crazy about him, but damn, the kids got stupid skillz..

    quickryde - Chris Weber?? Don't get me wrong, he's solid.. But not the best. Always been a fan of his since the Detroit Country Day days.. When I lived up there, I cought a few of his HS games. Dude was unreal back then..

    Yes I do agree. Just look what he is doing for that new Phoenix team (Amare Stoudamire out, Joe Johnson and Q. Richardson traded). As of today Phoenix has a better record than all the Eastern Conference teams except Detroit. THAT INCLUDES CLEVELAND! Only 4 teams with better records in the West.

    Steve is the NBA assist leader at 10.5 per game. His 18 points per game ain't bad either.

    Named player of the week for the West Nov. 21-27

    right now, Elton Brand might be the best player. I mean since the season started.

    Kobe Bryant.

    And before anybody starts stating that he was taking too many shots, no, that's not true. He was taking the shots until his team started figuring out the offense. The past 6 or 7 games Kobe has been absolutely sensational. He's perhaps one of the best passers in the league and it's shown lately. He's one of the best shooters in the league and that's shown. He's also a dominating defender that can lock any guard down.

    His new, slimmed-down look has made him very hard to guard, ultra-quick, and he can run forever.

    By the end of the year, Kobe will be right up there for MVP consideration, and the Lakers will really be surprising people, mark my words.

    Others? Lebron, KG, and of course, Tim Duncan. Duncan, though he doesn't put up the stats that KG does, probably is more valuable because he opens the floor up more than KG does. He's the best low-post player in the game, and you can't guard him with one player like you an KG. Oh... Shaq... sigh....

    I'd say LJ, but free-throws are killing him lately (see the Pacers game...actually air balled one, but they still won).

    I say best player in league is Steve Nash. He can run, pass, shoot, and is a leader.

    Most underrated= Kirk Hinrich

    Most Overrated= Kevin Garnett

    Bump to that... everyone is sleeping on Dwade and I don't know what for. The man is going to the top along with the Miami Heat. I'd take him over anyone in the game right now. Bump for dwade!!!

    Also, none of the posts have mentioned TMAC. Tmac is the man as well. Wade is my first pic and Tmac is my second.

    Wade isn't even close to the player Kobe is. Kobe's the best, everybody else is second. I don't even want to hear that he's playing selfish... blah blah... if you don't watch the Lakers you can't say that. It's simply amazing that their record is where it is. They have nothing but Kobe and he's simply able to keep them afloat.

    If Kobe had the team that Wade or Lebron had, there'd be no comparison. The degree of difficulty in the shots he takes compared to everyone else takes is off the chart.

    Anyway, my vote is for Kobe... that's obvious He's grown up so much in the past 2 years.... both his game and himself.

    Because he takes the majority of the lakers's shots, doesn't make him the best(I.E. game tonight he took 22 shots and had 24 points)... Since he got rid of shaq, how far has he gotten without him?

    Steve Nash, did you all forget...When in the lineup they win, when he's out they are a .500 team.

    He is the best "player" .

    My favorite player as far as making big shots and in the clutch is Kobe. Whether he is a prick or not, I don't care. How can anyone say he is overrated? In what way? He has 3 rings. And down the stretch of huge games with the lakers he , not shaq, got the ball.

    For the future it is def. Lebron.
