Current: LeBron, Melo, CP3, Kyrie

All-time: LeBron, Shaq, Dirk, Carter, T-Mac, Wade

In terms of one player in one season, 2012-13 LeBron was the closest thing I have seen to a perfect basketball player. Watching him that season was just ridiculous.

something annoys me about steph, some of his shots reminds me of someone on nba 2k cheesing it from the 3pt line.

anyways fav player to watch is lebron, probably a lot of guys favorite but they rather not admit it lolz.

You could make an argument for 12-13 LeBron having the best regular season in the history of basketball.

I love watching Chris Paul That guy is like a cross between Stockton and Kidd. Obviously not as many rebounds as Kidd, or assists as Stockton, but his court vision is as great as Stockton's, and his hustle is as intense as Kidd's, and he's such a consummate leader on the court, driving his teammates. But on top of that, he is an amazing defender and great scorer. Stockton was the better shooter, but CP3's can drive the lane so well.

Other than him, I love watching Duncan play and the Spurs in general. The ball movement is just fantastic.

As for back in the day. I LOVED the Bad Boys and the Celtics/Lakers (though I caught the tale end of the Celtics Lakers when they were slowing down a little), and I had a major hate-on for Jordan as a Detroit fan, so I loved watching his games to root against him, but also because that Bulls team was so intense to watch. Though I was always frustrated with the calls they got. I mean, Jordan could decapitate and run own the ball and dunk the guy's head in the basket and he'd be given an 'and one' because the guy got blood on him, But still... so many great games and intense moments.

Hakeem and D-Rob were AMAZING to watch. The athleticism, especially D-Rob on defense. He made a lot of 'mistakes' on defense, and he'd recover and just swat the ball away I'm not sure if he was lulling them into a false sense of security or not), and Hakeem on offense.... he was so quick and fluid. I miss that. Haven't seen it ever since. Closest to him in terms of post moves is likely Jordan and Kobe. Even though they play shooting guard, when they went to the post, they had some Hakeem-esque moves.

lol i remember on 2k13 you could cheese from the 3pt line with any good 3 pt shooter. i once scored 70 points with steve novak on myteam (did lose that game though)

Kyrie Irving. I mean the guy can pull any move he wants to although I will admit sometimes he does it too much and its not all that effective. He can also get really hot and make tough shots. The only thing he cant really do is dunk but I much rather see a tough layup than a dunk these days - theyre all the same dunks.

Yeah, I agree. Although I hope he goes home this round, I really like watching Steph Curry but sometimes it just seems like he's playing around out there. They go in, though which is even more impressive then your average three point specialist.

And call me a homer dope, but I actually like watching Harden's unrelenting drives with the ball out from his body, his cold blooded step backs, his tight threes and his passing out of a drive to set up someone else.
