Last time when I wrote "The Top 5 NBA Players" there was too much complain\ing.

But I decided to work with the criticism, and now going to give my the top 10 NBA players.




1. LeBron James is the best because his stats. He lead the Cavs to the East Finals and his best complimentary player was Big Z (Zydrunas Ilgauskas), who only averaged 12 points.

He also won the MVP trophy in this 2008-09 season. Jame is an all-around player which can do anything.


2. Kobe Bryant is the second best in the NBA. He has won three NBA titles in his NBA career, and is still in contention this season. However, with all that success, Bryant still has never been the Finals MVP.

Bryant is a one-time MVP and he is 30. LeBron is also a one-time MVP and is only 24.

Kobe can still win the NBA championship, finally without Shaq, and has a chance at a Finals MVP this year.


3. Dwyane Wade has some of the best stats in the NBA this season. He led the NBA in scoring, and Wade has more points, rebounds, assists, and steals than Kobe or LeBron.

But he led a bad team so that's why he has the best stats, earning him third on my list.


4. Chris Paul, "CP3" to fans, is the fourth best player in the NBA. He is the youngest person on this list. Paul led the league in steals and assists in 2008-09.


5. Allen Iverson is still a top-five player, because of his career stats and his ability to lead a bad team.  He won an MVP with a terrible team, he won the scoring title 3 times, and he led the 2001 Sixers to the Finals, and actually won Game One against Kobe and Shaq. Wow!


6. Tracy McGrady "T-Mac" is the sixth-best basically because of his stats. He can rebound, score, pass, and steal. McGrady is great because he can do everything except block.


7. Dwight Howard can block, rebound, and score. He lead the Orlando Magic to the Finals this year. Howard is a very dominant center in the NBA.


8. The young Deron Williams is the eighth best in the NBA. He averages about 10 assists and about 20 points per game. He also has two steals a game. Williams could have led the Jazz to playoff dominance, but they had too many injury problems.


9. Vince Carter is a great player, so he makes the list. He can score, pass, and rebound. He can lead his team, and Carter is still a dominant player.


10. Tim Duncan has had a great career. He won four NBA titles so far. Duncan was the Finals MVP three times, who can block, rebound, and score. He even improved his jumpshots in 2008.


The close snubs that missed the list are Steve Nash, Amar'e Stoudamire, and Kevin Garnett.
