Shaq isn't the best player, however it's your opinion. The best player who hasn't even reached his prime yet is LeBron.

Kobe's the best right now. And I have a feeling this thread should/will be closed.

Shaq is the best player of the 2000's followed closely by Duncan. I could see Duncan still being the best as he still is in his prime, but Shaq now isn't even an allstar.

I don't care about your stupid thread. Dude, do you know how to use periods to separate sentences or capital letters at the beginning of sentences?

Shaq is no longer thet best, at one point he was the most dominant player in the game. You can argue that the best is either Lebron or Kobe IMO.

best all around player has to be kobe. i can't stand his personality, but he has the total package on the court... driving, shooting, passing, post-up, defense, and most importantly, experience.
i wonder if his teamates like him though? that's kind of important...
soon to be best all around player is obviously Lebron... i think he needs a ring to put him over the edge to make it unquestionable.

Shaq was the most unstoppable player this league has ever seen. I think this gentleman has the right to make a thread to honour a great player that we are all fortunate enough to have seen in our lifetimes, we saw him win 4 championships, and even when ppl say hes washed up, continues to show up to training camp. HE may NOT be the shaq of old, but one day kobe and lebron will slow down , but we wont just become haters on thier front like the world did with shaq, we would honour them till the day they walked away.. i just wished ppl gave shaq that same respect

Shaq has my respect, he's always doing to dominate on defense and offense because of his size, he's always going to be bigger than his opponent, or the biggest guy in the NBA arena.

Shaq will always have the power to back down and score the ball easily.

Shaq will always have the advantage on defense, he just needs to put a hand up on his defender and that's enough.

Shaq's #s went down because he was on the Suns, and he doesn't fit in their running system at all, he's a half court player.

I wouldn't call Shaq the best TODAY, but he is very valuable to have on a team. Yes, eventually he will get slower and won't be able to run (it's already happening), but he still has what it takes to be dominant, easily. He just needs to work a bit harder nowadays to keep up with his team.

shaq was probabaly the most DOMINANT player to ever play the game. And he was the best in the world for quite a few years. But, hes not even top 15 in the league now.

And oh yea... Lebron > kobe.

lmfao, Shaq? are you kidding me? That was funny man. In the past, yes he was the most dominant force, but now he's playing just to say he stayed in the nba till 40. Best all around player is Kobe or D-Wade period

you are entitled to your opinion but when you say kobe's spped is overrated and then you call shaq the best player in the world you lose all credibility with me. if you came out and made a good arguement for lebron james i wouldnt think too much of it. lebron is the one player in the nba who is almost on the same level as kobe. you dont watch kobe. he gets to the lane.. proof of this is he shoots around 10 free throws a game. 2nd his mid range jumper is what makes him so amazing ala michael jeffrey jordan... he is an all league defender. proof of his amazing "d" was in the olympics this summer. who guarded the best player on the opposing team every night???? you guessed it: kobe bean bryant.look at how many times he made the all league defensive team... kobe elvated the play and inspired a group of young inexperienced players... ya lebron took just an ok team to the finals but he had a team of veterans. kobe took an ok team to the finals but had all inexperienced and young players... only kobe and fisher had ever really done any damage in the playoffs...

A quantitative analysis of the best players in the NBA last year can be found here. (http://www.wagesofwins.com/MVPAllNBA2008.html) Based on Wins Produced (WP), Chris Paul is the best player in the league. There's a complicated formula to figure wins produced, but basically the number respresents the wins that player is responsible for that year. Should you add up the WP's of all the players on a team, you get approximately how many games that team won for the year, so I think it's fairly accurate. You can read an explanation of Wins Produced, and the simpler Win Score, here (http://dberri.wordpress.com/2006/05/21/simple-models-of-player-performance/).

If you are comparing their careers then it's Shaq or Duncan. Right now, it's between Kobe and Lebron.

Shaq is definitely not the bet player in the NBA.

and i agree, the best player is LeBron James, and he isnt even as good as he's gonna eventually be.

hockeypro68
09-12-2008, 05:37 PM
Lebron is going be SO much bettter than kobe. LOOOK what he did last year.. 30/8/7/2/1 ?????????????????? At the age of 23. He's already taken his team to the finals. And guess what, with Mo next year, they're going back.

Lakerfan32
09-12-2008, 05:38 PM
Easily Lebron. The guy works on his shot and defense and he may be best ever.

PurpleJesus
09-12-2008, 05:53 PM
did this dude seriously just call shaq the best player in the world? I dont even think i could conisder him a top five C anymore.

Chris Pauls name should be thrown out there as potentially being the best.

But its probably Kobe, and no, I am not a Lakers fan at all.

09-12-2008, 06:03 PM
I'm a suns and Shaq fan man and I'm not even gonna vouch for that. The Diesel was once the best in the world, but now Kobe is much better than him... definitely. Just check the stats. I'm not saying Kobe is "the best", but just better than the Big Cactus.

I'm convinced this is a troll post. It's your FIRST post and you spout out absolute nonsense and talk like you know these forums and have been posting here for while. Lame bait.

Lebron can't be the best until he stops shooting airballs from the line, learns to shoot from range, get's to NBA first defensive team and can be clutch...


Kobe is the best. then Lebron will take it from there, But I agree Shaq was the best for a while...

The first sentence makes no sense by any means. And if we are basing something on who is the best than it would be Duncan as he actually has both finals and league mvp's and multiple at that.

I believe he meant how can someone be the best when they shoot airballs from the FT line. Still, not much sense there...

D Wade was the best in the World Showcase known as the Olympics.

I can agree with that. Also Lebron looked great as well in the Olympics. But I'm pretty sure that once the NBA season starts Kobe will rise to the top once again. The thing about Kobe that is so impressive is his longevity. Honestly, he does it year after year after year. Lots of good players come and go and lots of players have banner years spread throughout their careers............but what sets Kobe apart from everyone else is that he's great EVERY year and he's up at the top producing each season for the last 10-11 years and is showing no signs of slowing up. And if you ask me, he still seems to be getting better each year and comes into each season with a new bag of tricks.
