List RulesVote up the top NBA southpaws.

Who are the best left-handed players currently in the NBA? Certainly, this list includes some of the best lefties playing right now, and potentially some of the top NBA players of all time. Check out these lists of best current dunkers and best current scorers, along with the biggest NBA floppers playing today

The best active left handed players who are currently playing in the NBA are actually among the overall top current NBA players, too (James Harden, D'Angelo Russell, and Zion Williamson come to mind immediately). 

Vote for the current NBA left-handed players that you think are the most important, key players for their respective teams, and if your favorite (or most hated) player isn't listed, add him. You can also re-rank this list of NBA southpaws in any order you want.
