There are just some guys in the NBA that you just want to watch any time they’re playing. These are some of the stars in this league that I love to watch and are a force when they play. Check out the top ten guys in the league to watch down below.
The Top Ten Guys in the League to Watch
10. Giannis Antetokounmpo: Giannis is just 27 years old and has the pedigree of a hall of famer. The dude is a literal freak, as his nickname suggests, and he can get to the rim with his go-go gadget arms at will. The Greek Freak is unstoppable and is an amazing sight to see.
9. LeBron James: LeBron could arguably be higher on this list, but this is a personal preference. LeBron has been at the top of the NBA rankings for so many years, and we’ve almost got used to his brilliance. Nevertheless, he is still a monster and one of the greatest of all time, so who wouldn’t want to watch him?
8. Kyrie Irving: Kyrie is box office, as Stephen A. Smith would say, and he is a master of scoring. He was so fun to watch in those Cleveland years, and he’s still one of the top point guards in the league that gets absolute buckets. Not to mention, he probably has the best handle in the league.
7. Kevin Durant: KD is still a sight to see every night with his ability to play any position and score at will. He puts up 30 almost every night, and it’s almost like it’s too easy for him. After all, his nickname is the Easy Money Sniper. KD’s a beast!
6. Ja Morant: Morant is a rising star in this league and is one of the bounciest point guards we’ve seen since Derrick Rose. He’s got a crazy bag and can get to his spots with ease and score. Ja has the skill and play-making ability to be one of the best players in the league for years to come.
5. Zion Williamson: He could arguably be number one on the list with his electric dunks and jumping ability. Zion is still so young, and he’s been injured a lot to start his young career, but I will tune into every game this man plays because of his constant energy and being a beast.
4. Nikola Jokic: Jokic has reinvented the way a big man is played, and he is one of the most dynamic passers in the league. He’s the back-to-back MVP, and he puts on a show every night
with his slow but dominant array of moves, including the Somber Shuffle.
3. Damian Lillard: Dame has earned himself a spot and is a guy that can carry a team to win any game of the season. He gets tough buckets all the time, and his patented side-step has given him the nickname Dame Time in the 4th quarter.
2. Steph Curry: He is the best shooter of all time, and it’s not close. The guy puts on a show every night, and you feel like it’s a marathon watching him run off screens and hit ridiculous threes. Oh, and not to mention, he has one of the best handles in basketball.
1. Luka Doncic: Luka has been making his case for the most exciting player to watch for the past 5 straight years. With his classic step-back fadeaways or his ridiculous footwork in the paint, there’s almost nothing Luka Magic can’t do offensively.
