Not necessarily the best player, but definitely the most fun to watch at every position. My list is:

PG- Derrick Rose
SG- Monta Ellis
SF- LeBron James (As much as I am not a fan)
PF- Blake Griffin
C- Dwight Howard
6th-Man- JR Smith

I think that's a solid list. My favorites to watch, however, are...

PG: Rondo- I just love how smooth and flashy of a offensive player he can be.
SG: Manu- Hands down, easiest choice of the bunch. So much passion, so much flare, so much effort. He's so gutsy too.
SF: LeBron- Unlike anything ever.
PF: Blake- This better be unanimous.
C: Dwight- Especially with some offensive moves and some mid range shots.

I don't know why you keep saying Dwight is the most entertaining C in the NBA. I get do frustrated watching this guy. The only moves he has are a crappy rolling hook shot and garbage putbacks.

SG - Kobe - i love it when he just goes off and theres no way of stopping him
SF - Bron Bron - may hate em, but the dude can still ball
PF - Griffin - highlight dunk after highlight dunk after highlight dunk...

these are my favs for each position:

PG: rondo/deron williams
SG: wade/MANU!
SF: Lebron
PF: Griffin
C: Bogut (homer pick I know...definately not the most exciting player to watch but I love watching his hustle and complete all-around game)

EDIT: I would also add earl boykins to the PG list. seeing him put up 22 pts in 26 mins against the lakers was epic.

That train of thought is so last year bro...

His offense is far more complex than just that now. Defense alone is worth the price of admission, and now he does seriously have some legit offensive moves, including a surprisingly accurate Tim Duncan bank shot.

Rentzias

PG - Steve Nash - Incredible court vision, and non-stop engine on the court, and most creative PG in the lane.
SG - Kobe - I think you measure this by if one SG made you stop what you were doing to watch what he MIGHT do, then Kobe.
SF - Bron - Exciting to watch defensively as well.
PF - Josh Smith by a hair over Griffin just because he does stupid things that are just as exciting (i.e. "Why TF did you do that?")
C - Dwight over Horford.

I know I haven't seen too many of his games this year, but I've been frustrated every time I watch him. Maybe cuz it was against Atlanta 2 of the times where they shut him down. Regardless I'd rather watch Amare (even though I hate the Knicks.)

PG: Chris Paul
SG: Dwyane Wade (anyday of the week. Never seen an exciting player like him after MJ retired. Seeing him attacking the basket is a blessing. He is the hands down most exciting player since Jordan.)
SF: LeBron James
PF: Amare
C: Shaq

I definitely understand. As a Magic fan, sometimes watching Dwight is beyond frustrating. This year it's just been a lot better.

I'm more concerned with hyping Manu. I love everything about his style of play. I'd watch him any day over anyone when fully healthy.

I like this list a lot, but substitute Rondo for Russell Westbrook. I think Josh Smith is underrated too, but Blake is just a monster.

C- McGee - just something about a tall lanky ****er running the floor is great.
PF - Griffin - crazy dunks
SF - Lebron - all around fun game to watch
SG - Richard Hamilton/ Ray Allen. those guy are fun to watch running around barely leaving their feet and they way they get open/ get screens is great
PG - Nash - enough dunking for a bit, this guy just runs and throws the ball everywhere. great smooth shot as well.
(hon. mention - earl boykins. that guy is great)

PG: Derrick Rose (the most exciting PG in the league period)
SG: Dwyane Wade (I love Flash)
SF: LeBron James (Not a fan but this guy is the most physically gifted athlete in the NBA)
PF: Amare Stoudemire (STAT has been dunking on dudes since 2002 and is still doing it despite microfracture surgery)
C: Dwight Howard (with out question the most exciting player at his position and its not even close. You want defense or powerful dunks watch this guy)
6th man: Steve Nash(the most unselfish at his position he will make any player better)

PG: Russell Westbrook (this guy is alot like Rose and plays like Rondo defensively)
SG: Ray Allen (I love watching this guy shoot the ball just not against the Magic though
SF: Gerald Wallace (plays reckless but always gives you effort)
PF: Blake Griffin (surprisingly the leader in dunks he a highlight every nite)
C: Pau Gasol (the most skilled big man today)
6th Man: Dirk Nowitzki (this guy is unguardable he can make tough shots look easy and love watching him shoot)

I guess most of your definitions of "exciting" means dunk? Thats what it seems like from your posts.

A good dunk is nice, but I care about all around skill and get more excited seeing a nice play then a big dunk.
