We all love basketball.
We also love to put some of our favorite players in rankings.
And since i'm just starting out and I love to do rankings, I say why not?
This list expresses my feelings on the NBA.
My regards go to my notable mentions Deron Williams, Carlos Boozer, Brandon Roy, Amare Stoudemire, Chris Bosh, Chauncey Billups, and rookie point guard Derrick Rose. Enjoy!
10. Vince Carter
Vince Carter is an elite player.
He's as complete as it gets. He can shoot, he can find the open man, and he can crash the boards.
Let's not forget he's the best dunker in NBA history.

This year, he and Chauncey Billups have taken the Denver Nuggets to the Conference Finals—and possibly beyond, but only time will tell. He averaged 22 points, six boards, and three assists during the regular season, and 28 points, six boards, and four assists in the playoffs.

1. LeBron James
Some may call LeBron a freak of nature. Some may say his skills are God-given. But I just call him The King—and trust me, I am a witness.
He had a MVP-type season to match that trophy he has. He averaged 28 points, seven boards, and seven assists and in the he's averaging 34 points, nine boards, six assists.
If anyone competes with Michael Jordan for the all-time great, it will be LeBron. Long Live The King.
