Ball handling: nash
3-point shooting (open): Ray Allen

Close-ranged shots,driving (not layups,dunks,midrange): Tony Parker
Close-ranged shots, posting up: Pau Gasol / Duncan
Driving: Devin Harris
Slasher: Wade
Creating his own shot: Kobe
Help-defense: was AK47 there is more team help D not player help D. If anyone one person would get this probably D. Howard /A. Bynum because they help everytime in changing and blocking shots on all layup/dunk attempts
On-ball defense: This depends on position....PG's are a lot harder to stay in front of than C's I think D. Williams has great on ball D.
Perimeter defense:
Post defense: Sounds ridiculous but K. Brown
Court vision: CP3
Playmaking: LB23
Rebounding:D. Howard
Blocks: D. Howard
Steals:CP3
Boxing out:

lol...thats exactly what I was thinking

Like, Nash will create some pretty good plays. He's great at it.

But amazing playmaking (and im using Laker examples because I watch the Lakers more than any other team) would be like the Farmar to Ariza Alley-oops or the Odom to Pau passes that make you go "WOAH!". Basically, AMAZING plays.

Just because he is injured doesn't mean he can't knock down a game winner when healthy ....

I have never seen a guy better at rotating then KG other than MJ and that is saying a HELL of alot for a PF. He is also one of the best all-around defenders in the league and has been for some time. I thought for sure I would have seen his name appear atleast once in everybody's picks but I guess not. I know there aren't many players that have a better fadaway or midrange than KG. Just seemed a little weird that's all.

wow a Laker fan defending a Boston player. :speechless:

I've seen it all....


and by the way, as great as melo may be in game winners and outlaw, wade, LBJ, etc., I guarantee you that Kobe is better at it. And I love all the players I just mentioned, but Kobe is known for it for a reason. Every coach and team in this league would want Kobe shooting the final shot. He's the most successful player at it.
