Making it from the driveway hoop to an NBA hardwood floor requires a certain amount of determination. You don't put in thousands of hours of workouts, practices and studying without the hunger to do great things.
(Insert inspirational Michael Jordan quote here.)
Ask just about any NBA player (except for maybe Larry Hughes), and they'll say winning is most important to them. But sports is all about who's the best at this, or the most that. We have to grade, rank, categorize. So who wants it more?
That question has no scientific or numeric formula, and as such, no real solution. Competitive drive is one of those intangibles that you just know when you see it. The worst part? It manifests itself in a number of ways. Passion on the court. Crazy workouts off it. Sacrifices to personal life and even having the ability to swallow one's pride. Playing through pain or just still playing after 20 years.
With that in mind, after crunching the numbers, we've compiled a list of the most competitive player on each of the 30 NBA teams.
If you've got reason to believe your favorite competitor should be on here, but isn't, let us know in the comments section.
