Duncan and Kobe, both great no doubt at all, didnt change the game tho. Shaq is a total phenom and one day another of his kind will come, but DEF not for a while. Kobe and Duncan are more common style players (but those guys are unreal anyway).

    LeBron could be the game changer of the next era tho!

    SO TRUE!

    And Kobe may not have revolutionized the 2-guard position, cuz MJ came before him, but you have to remember that when MJ retired, people thought it would take about 30-40 yrs later to see another player similar to MJ and be on that same elite level at the 2-guard. guess what...mj's last 2 seasons in the league were kobe 1st 2 seasons.

    This may be the most hated aspect of Kobe Bryant, he came 40 yrs too quick, and came at the last yrs of MJ, so all MJ/NBA fans felt "insulted" and "threatened". Hell, NBA fans felt it was a SIN for someone that young to be that good and come right at the same time as when Jordan was declining (yet winning championships at the same time)

    And from that point on, the man named KObe Bean Bryant has been hated for 13 years and counting. He kept the 2-guard (along with AI to an extent, but he was a combo 1 & 2 guard) relevant in the NBA near and after Jordan's retirement. SO from that aspect, Kobe ranks near, but not at the top of the list of best player of the decade of the 2000s.

    That honor still goes to Shaq, the most dominant ever, yes even more dominant than wilt cuz Shaq wasn't playing against all smaller centers.

    Those are the only three with claims. Shaq and Duncan have more overall accolades this decade than Kobe, so they get the nod.
    Yeah. It HAS to be Shaq. Just as many rings as anyone else. 3 Finals MVP vs. Duncan's 1 and Kobe's 1. A league MVP. The most dominating player ever in the early 2000s.

    1. Shaq
    2. Kobe
    3. Duncan

    Yup very true!

    And a re-birth for him as well. Felt good to see him get back to that elite level. You never want to see a player hurt/injured. it was just good overall to see him get back to that dominant level.

    He sure is on my list, but what hurt him was that he was really good in dallas, but hadn't hit his peak until 2004 when he signed with phoenix.

Duncan and Garnett and even Nowitzki are better basketball players than the rest of this list.
    Kobe, Lebron, and Wade are more than scorers. Lebron can rebound and pass as well. Wade can pass and handle the ball. Kobe has the all-around package of passing, rebounding, great defense, etc.

    Quit being a basketball novice. When did you become a fan of the NBA????

    I'm assuming June 2003 . Are you sure you weren't in a comatose state the first 3-4 yrs of this decade?

    Lebron and Wade are also good defenders.

    Ya, im gonna agree wid u there, Dwyane was the best defensive 2 guard last season, he should've made 1st defensive team with kobe. Lebron was part of a good defensive team, and had highlight fastbreak blocks. But individually, I would gave Wade the edge, then Lebron.

    Shaq goes anywhere that already has a superstar and puts them in contention. Shaq does not win without Kobe. Shaq does not win without D-Wade. Shaq does not win by himself. Not any more than the players who always get accused of not being able to win without Shaq. Kobe just solved that riddle for himself. What happens when LeBron doesn't win with Shaq? Who gets blamed?

    If Shaq had been average sized instead of gargantuan, he would have had no career in basketball. If there were a "No Dunking" rule, Shaq could not play the game. That is why he does not get my vote.
