All NBA stars entertain us when we sit in the stands or on our comfy couches, but only a select few are able to actually change the way we view the game of basketball.
These 10 players have had both monumental on-court impacts and significant off-course impacts on the NBA.
They've forced us to watch different aspects of the game, challenge the norms and set new standards. Tim Duncan has legitimatized the beauty of fundamentals while Kobe Bryant has re-branded the league.
They aren't the first players to have major impacts, and they certainly won't be the last ones to do so, but they've all changed how we view basketball.
