Who are the best scorers currently in the NBA? Certainly, this list includes some of the best offensive players playing right now, and potentially some of the top NBA players of all time. Check out these lists of best current shot blockers and best current defenders, along with the best (worst) NBA floppers playing today. Having an awesome scorer gives any NBA team a huge advantage.

The top scorers who are currently playing in the NBA are certainly among the overall top current NBA players, too (Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Stephen Curry, and LeBron James come to mind immediately). 

The highly skilled NBA players on this list can make or break a team's performance on the court. They are high output scorers who can shoot from behind the three-point line and drive in the paint. Usually also considered for MVP, these offensive players are experts at scoring from anywhere on the court regardless of how many defenders are guarding them. 

Vote for the current offensive players who you think are the most important, key players for their respective teams, and if your favorite player isn't listed, add him. You can also re-rank this list of NBA scorers in any order you want.
