    True pro's, maturing pro's, enigma's and knuckleheads.

    Let's try something different...let's categorize NBA stars by attitude as opposed to skill set. It's a huge gamble to take given the volatile nature of these forums at times...but it fun to see how people view players inhow they conduct themselves publicly.

    I'll start.

    True pro's. Guys with class, modest guys who are willing to sacrifice for team success. These guys have good attitudes and are generally likable guys.

    Tim Duncan
    Steve Nash
    Chauncey Billups
    Yao Ming
    Dwyane Wade
    Shane battier
    Deron Williams
    Pau Gasol
    Dirk Nowitzki
    Jason Kidd
    Brandon Roy
    Derrick Rose

    The following guys are still maturing and show a willingness to carry themselves professionally on the court. However they have times where they struggle containing their ego's, which comes with being young and earning your stripes in the league. They are still maturing.

    Chris Paul
    Chris Bosh
    Carmelo Anthony
    Kevin Durant
    Rudy Gay
    Dwight Howard
    Kevin Martin
    Danny Granger
    OJ Mayo
    Andre Iguodala
    Al Jefferson
    Monta Ellis

    These are guys that really have a "you either like them or you don't" attitude, but their games are certainly to be respected regardless of your opinion. The enigma's as I call 'em.

    LeBron James
    Paul Pierce
    Kobe Bryant
    Kevin Garnett
    Vince Carter
    Shawn Marion
    Josh Howard
    Carlos Boozer
    Rasheed Wallace
    Ron Artest
    Tracy McGrady

    Hopelessly immature and selfish guys who refuse to adapt their game for the good of the team. To say it more bluntly: The knuckleheads.

    Allen Iverson
    Baron Davis
    Zach Randolph
    Ricky Davis
    Al Thornton
    Stephon Marbury
    Stephen Jackson
    Gilbert Arenas
    Nate Robinson
    Josh Smith
    Al Harrington
    Amare Stoudemire

    Now can you name 12 players you believe fits these 4 categories?

    1. True pro's.
    2. Maturing pro's.
    3. Enigma's.
    4. Knuckleheads.
