Top 10 basketball players of modern NBA era

kobe1. Kobe Bryant

I think that many will support me if I tell the name of Kobe. And not for nothing. At the moment Kobe, the most titled player in league, on his account of 5 champion’s titles, and also a set of other titles.
I consider Bryant as absolutely phenomenal player; he is able to do everything on the court. Can give fantastic transfer, hammer the improbable tank, cover any “big” and of course it is necessary to tell about dirty talks of a black mamba. And what in principle to speak? Here it is necessary to see.

Many say that Kobe any more not that Kobe grows old. The truth in these words is, all of us do not look younger, but the mamba still shows decent basketball, and quite often we see former Bryant, the spiteful and aggressive car. I think that Kobe will be able to play 2-3 more seasons at the decent level, and then we will observe how Kobe will gradually leave basketball, we will reconsider young Kobe’s moments, to write at forums that Kobe still will prove to be and so on. When Kobe declares completion of career at many tears, or a lump in a throat will act, someone will cease to watch basketball matches. In five years after completion of career of Kobe will enter the Hall of Basketball Glory, and I am confident in that absolutely. Also, will clap to it standing and long, as to Michael Jordan in 2008.

lebron-james2. Lebron James

I long thought whom to choose, I chose between Lebron and Wade, and still I will give the vote for itself the proclaimed king. James is unique, as well as Kobe, he is able all. Many changed the opinion on Lebron after he passed into Heath. I am not his fan, glorify which with foamy of a mouth will prove that James the loser. I treat its decision neutrally, on the one hand I do not approve that Lebron was not responsible for the words, having told that will not leave Cleveland will not win a treasured ring yet. But on the other hand, I share his desire to receive a ring, and to join elite of basketball.

The great number of players who are NBA legends, but did not win champion rings: Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley, Dominic Wilkins, Elgin Baylor, Reggie Miller, Karl Malone, John Stockton.

The decision to pass into Heath he took a step backwards in the career. I think that Lebron in the future will be a legend, but not such as Michael, Magic, Larry. I am sure that for the career of Lebron will win couple of rings.

Dwayne Wade3. Dwayne Wade

At times I gave the second place to Lebron, the third is occupied undoubtedly by Dwayne Wade. I consider the Flash as one of the best defenders in NBA at the moment. For me Wade- the most spectacular player of league. That only there are tanks through Perkins and Varejao, or blocks Chandler or Brook Lopez. It seems that Wade plays quite recently, but to him 29 years. We wait still at least for 4-5 bright seasons and repetition of 2006.

kevin-durant4. Kevin Durant

I give the fourth place to the small forward of “Oklahoma”, now Warriors. Potential at the guy is huge, I perhaps will compare it to potential. Kevin Durant, possesses huge game IQ, and has makings of the leader. In the first season for “Seattle” Kevin gathered on average approximately on 20 points for a match. I like in Durant that he does not suffer from star fever that in is mute there is no desire to shine outside a platform. On character Durant the complete antithesis to James. Many say that Durant will break Kareem-Abdul Jabbar’s record on number of points for career, I consider that if Durant will not break Karim’s record, in the five it will be exact the same. This guy has a big future and I love the idea that we will be able to witness it. Most likely, in three years if I again will write the same article, Durant will lead our top ten.

Derrick Rose5. Derrick Rose

I give the fifth place to the favorite player – the leader of “bulls”, and now New York “Knicks” –  Derrick Rose. The first number of a draft of 2008 completely proved to be in the playoffs of that year in a series against “Celts”, to a pressure with Ben Gordon they dragged “bulls” and if not experience and skill of “Celts”, there would be a sensation. And in this season of Rose proved to be in all beauty, having brought “bulls” to the final of East conference where conceded “to Grozny the Trio” from Florida. Rose alone not a smog nothing to oppose “Hit”. It should be noted that in 22 years Derrick became season MVP. Many compare Rose to Jordan, but I do not consider it correct, Derrick as if was not good not to surpass Michael to it.

Chris Paul6. Chris Paul

What ten can do without Chris Paul’s presence? The sixth place for the main hornet of league. Perhaps, Paul best playing in league, he is unique, he is the real leader, and in the field and out of it, Chris’s dribbling is smart, it is almost impossible to take away a ball from Paul, it is also worth noting perfectly put throw. The set of hearings concerning possible transition of Paul to other club goes, in this list appear: Lakers, Orlando, Knicks. The management of “Hornets” needs to get the player of decent level to keep Paul in team.

Dwight Howard7. Dwight Howard

Many to be surprised why so low I arranged Dwight Howard. Dwight undoubtedly the best center in league at the moment. But if objectively to look at a situation, Howard has no competitors. Dwight possesses perhaps the best athleticism in league though many designate its pumped over by a monkey. Howard in the sports hall spends a lot of time. Many authoritative players claim that Dwight does not use all the potential. I agree at Dwight athleticism it can gather till 20-25 selections for a match and hammer on 40 points, but its statistics is slightly more modest. Probably Dwight listened to public opinion and decided to improve the skills, this summer he took lessons from Hakeem Olajuwon, I hope that Hakeem will tighten the Superman’s level.

Amare Stoudemire8. Amare Stoudemire

I liked him very much in previous a season games. If he was not traumatized in the first match in a series with “Celts”, fight would turn out fiercer. Many do not carry Amar to a rank of stars of NBA, bringing into argument that Stat could not reach anything having under a wing best playing leagues. Nash+Amare’s team directed horror at any protection. But to Become decided to leave “Phoenix”. Later Carmelo and Chauncey joined it. One more was so organized “the Big Trio”. In the first season, together there is nothing essential they did not manage to reach, but here during the next seasons I am sure that Knicks still will prove to be. I consider that Amar the best powerful forward at the moment in NBA.

Rajon Rondo9. Rajon Rondo

Rajon Rondo from the most perspective players of NBA. Rondo perfectly sees a platform, and his transfers are excellent, but Rondo has one big problem is a throw, it has an awful percent of hits because of an arch of 23,3%. The throw with average too not all that well, but Rondo is good in passes under a ring. I believe that in the next years Rondo will improve the shooting and will become even a better player than he ever been.

Deron Williams10. Deron Williams

en is closed by “the Turkish guest” Deron Williams. Deron’s exchange brought me into Nets unawares. The trade turned out unilateral, Utah in fact from this exchange nothing had no, probably the management decided to build new team which support will be a youth, but unless Deron is  the old man? For Deron, I consider the trade is favorable, he joined the talented center – to Brook Lopez, and now around them two Mischa will build new “Nets”. I am sure that upon completion of career, Deron will enter the Hall of Basketball Glory.
