Hey guys, how was everyone's New Year?

2009 should be a really big year for ALOT of NBA teams especially my Knicks with Walsh, Summer of '09, and mad salary off the books.

Anyway, I was wondering everyone's favorite basketball players since there has been a ton of player threads made.

I was just wondering who everyone likes?


MY favorite basketball player is CHRIS PAUL.

I don't know if he's my favorite, but you have to love Dwight Howard.

19.7 PPG, 13.8 REB, 3.6 BLK. He's a beast... Just has to get that FT % up.

Outside of him, Manu/Pierce/LBJ are my fav players

^^Its all about CP3 son.

I see Allen Iverson still gets love. AI was my favorite player for a long time, but Chris Paul took that spot now. Allen Iverson is still Top 3 and im happy he is getting voted in the AllStar game.

Even though im a huge Cavs fan I have to go with Chris Paul.

He may be the most respectable player in the league.

1. Paul Pierce has always been my favorite. And after he took a dump on Kobe and the Lakers in the Finals, he's a God IMO.

2/3. Jameer and Rashard are my other two favorites.

4. The King. No one is more fun to watch. No one makes the game look so effortless and easy. He'll go down as the best if he ever gets a legit #2 player (done so much already without one).

5. I love Brandon Roy too...class act off the court, even better on it.

Chris Paul....And not because of basketball but because of the person he seems to be....After he put that kids name on his shoe last year in the playoffs, it just touched me....The kid was about to die, and I think his only wish was to meet Chris Paul, and I think the kid died before he could meet him, and even Chris Paul showed emotions....Thats real....



J.R. Smith is my 2nd favorite, mainly because of basketball. :cool:

those are pretty stark contrasts....jr smith is a kinda a POS when it comes to being a person...while chris paul is a all around good dude.

MY favorite basketball player is CHRIS PAUL.


Couple things need to happen for lebron to be in NY.

1. Knicks some how need to put a winning team there. lebron WON'Tgo to NY just to be there. He wants to win.

2. some how have the NBA get rid of the larry bird rights so the knicks can offer lebron the most money. right now the cavs can offer over 20mill more.

3. Get a coach who can offer defense. Lebron likes to play it from time to time.

Good luck... Lebron james is the best player in the world. No other player can do what he does. NOBODY!!! When the cavs trade wally for a all-star the cavs will win the championship and lebron will most likely resign.

But my fav player has to be big Z. nobody has more heart then this guy.

Outstanding players, wel rouder players with few or no flaws , pass first, team oriented low profile dudes.

Win is first "me" is second.

And of course the spanish nbaers except for Sergio.

Kobe he does everything right! he can pass, He can hit 3's,Mid Range Jumpers, He can Dunk, play 1 on1 like no other, amazing foot work, he can post, he can defend, he is clutch, he is a fierce competitor, a leader, he can hit free throws, he has respect 4 the game, and is extremely dedicated to it, he mastered the game. He has no weakness. zero!


Wade He is a great competitor and uses his advantages really well.

Nash is great for being old. that guy really did make his teamates better and plays with intesity.

Dirk he looks like he play really hard everytime and it looks like he hates losing and I like that about a player.

Ginobli I love his style.

Garnett He Plays really hard he may be an ******* but he has game.

I know I missed alot more.

I like all players that have swagger. like Joe Johnson, Tim Ducan, Lebron, players like that are amazing players and I repect their game a lot but are not the most fun to watch.

01-03-2009, 12:31 PM
Kobe he does everything right! he can pass.


When did that happen?

Anyone who has gilbert arenas, tracy mcgrady, sheed, artest, nate robinson and a few more should be checked in to a hospital. I cannot respect injury prone players. I cannot respect thugs either like artest, sheed, nate. These guys got no respect for hte game and just play for the money.

garnett use to be on my list until he started picking on PGs, then running from them.
