    Who is the Most Skilled Player Today?

    IMO its Stephen Curry, but there are a lot of other options.

    'Skilled' is too wide a term. Someone could have the most rebounding skill, or the most dribbling skill but it's like comparing apples to oranges.

    If we're talking about the player with the biggest and most versatile skillset, it's got to be Lebron.

    Skilled doesn't really mean your the best player in the league. I don't think Lebron is the most skilled player. I would go with a guy like Kyrie Irving.

    Most skilled player to me means that if everyone in the league had the same body(as in height, wingspan, athleticism, etc.) then who would dominate the most and my answer is Kobe Bryant. Chris Paul is a very close 2nd.

    Cp3, Curry, TP, Kobe, Dirk, Pau, Duncan, Pierce and Manu are some of the quick ones that come to mind. Gotta go Cp3 though.

    CP3, Kobe, and Tim Duncan are the most fundamentally skilled. Kyrie is really skilled as well for being so young. Of course if you count raw power and athleticism as skill then you can't leave out Lebron.

    Define skill here. It's a broad term. If you don't specify anything then it's LeBron hands down. He's the most skilled player today, his has skills at every facet of the game unlike any other.

    I don't know about that at all, I'd say it's his speed + power that puts him above the rest, not his skill set (which is obviously still elite). But he can't handle, pass or shoot like Cp3. And he doesn't have footwork like Kobe, for example. Overall I'd say Kobe's skill set is a about a half tier higher than Lebron's.

    That's not true at all. I really think everyone's opinion in skill is quite different. Lebron doesn't possess the ball handling of CP3, the footwork, post game, and shot repertoire of Kobe, nor does he have anything to close to Tim Duncan's low post moves and face up to the basket moves within 15 ft.

    Lebron is an extremely skilled passer and that I won't argue. I just believe his power and athleticism can very easily fool someone who knows nothing about basketball into thinking it's all skill when it's obviously 80% power and athleticism.

    This is true. Lebron is built like a line backer. When he gets to the rim he's just going straight to the rim and over powering defenders. He isn't being crafty with his moves. You just can't body him.

    Other than Kobe I'd say toss up between KD, Kyrie or D Rose. Really leaning toward Kyrie though because his range is better than Rose and obviously he's a better passer than KD...
