Any team can have a loaded roster of players with talent and skill, but it's how those players use their minds to employ those skills.

High basketball IQ can be the difference between a good player and a great player.

Take Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee for instance. He's an athletic big man with tremendous talent and a wingspan that makes him a GM's dream player, but his knowledge of the game has put him in headlines and highlight reels for the wrong reasons at times.

For this, we caught up with NBA on TNT analysts Mike Fratello and Greg Anthony to discuss some of the smartest players on the court.

Check out this video to see which players make the best decisions on the court and let us know who you think should have made their list in the comments below!
