In the NBA, dominant scorers usually lead teams and strong defenses lead to success in the playoffs. Yet, normal scoring and defense do not usually draw much excitement out of crowds.
When most people think of the most exciting players in NBA history, they think of athletes like Dominique Wilkins, Julius Erving, James Worthy and Michael Jordan. While they had high-flying acts, it was their quickness and ability to finish around the basket that drew many “ooos” and “ahs.”
The most creative players are not only exciting to watch, but they are usually highly effective in helping their teams. They have the ability to turn an offensive possession into the right direction where others may think they are running into a wall.
Sometimes that might mean making a basket when no shots seem available or making a jaw-dropping pass that leads to an easy score.
This article pays tribute to the most creative finishers from each team in the NBA today.
