- 1LeBron James, SF, MIA- Love him or hate him, LeBron is far and away the best player in the game today. LeBron finally got his first ring this year, and after years of being scrutinized for his play in crunch time, LeBron was outstanding late in games. He is the only player in the game today who can guard every position, from the 1 to the 5.
- 2Kevin Durant, SF, OKC- Durant has won 3 straight scoring titles, and at the age of 23 has gotten better each and every year, since he was the #2 pick out of Texas. Durant has established himself as the top scorer in the NBA currently and for the foreseeable future.
- 3Chris Paul, PG, LAC- Chris Paul can do it all. From setting up his teammates for easy shots to getting easy shots of his own, he is the best PG in the league. In addition to his offensive skill set, he is incredibly skilled on the defensive side of the ball as well. Paul led the league in SPG this year and made the All NBA-Defensive First Team.
- 4Dwight Howard, C, LAL- Howard is coming off one of his worst seasons, but he is still the best center in the game today. Howard has been on the All-Defensive 1st team 4 straight seasons, and has won Defensive P.O.Y. 3 times. Even swirled around constant trade rumors, Howard still averaged 20.6 PPG and 14.5 RPG. Howard will have a fresh start this year with the Los Angeles Lakers, and looks to help bring a title back to L.A.
- 5Kevin Love, PF, MIN- Kevin Love is a walking double-double. He is the best rebounder in the game today and gets buckets. He can score in a variety of ways including the 3 ball, he even won the 3 point contest during the All-Star break. Love does not get as much attention as he deserves due to his lack of supporting cast and the small market he plays in. Due to some of Minnesota’s offseason moves, that should change and Love will definitely be in MVP talks this coming season.
