Since a list of the top players in the entire NBA playoffs was too tough for me to compose, I decided to break it down by Eastern and Western Conferences. I will start with the the top four best in the west. These superstars have played phenomenal throughout the playoffs and during the entire regular season. I give you the top four best players in the west!
Mr.China. Ming has been reliable and consistent throughout the entire season this year, averaging 19.7 PPG, 9.9 RPG, and 2.0 BPG. During the playoffs Ming is averaging a double-double every game and has been huge for the Rockets in the first round and the start of the second. He is a determined player and ranks as the fourth best in the west.
Mr. Big Shot. Billups has been nothing short of spectacular for the Nuggets during the playoffs thus far. He is shooting a ridiculous 59.5 percent from beyond the three-point line and is averaging nearly 20 points and seven assists per game. Billups has made the Nuggets what they are and rightfully deserves to be ranked as No.3 on this list.
The German Assassin. Nowitzki averaged 26 PPG (his best average since the 05'-06' season), 8.4 RPG, and 2.4 APG in 81 games this season. In the second round of the playoffs, the German is averaging a preposterous 31.5 PPG and 9.5 RPG. Nowitzki has simply been under the radar throughout the entire season and deserves to get some recognition as the second best player left in the west.
The Black Mamba. We all knew this was coming. Bryant is clearly the best player left in the west, if not, the best in the entire league. He dropped 40 points the other night against the Rockets and has proven why he is one of the most dominate players in the game today. Bryant and the Lakers are looking to crown themselves as the champions this season and will not stop fighting until they do so. The Black Mamba is the best.
