Blake Griffin

Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant, like Anthony Davis, is another small player in a big man’s body. Durant shoots 3-pointer like no other because at 6’11” – he’s impossible to stop. Durant is the leagues third best scorer at 25.4 points per game.

LeBron James

The King is not longer the King, as he comes in at #2 on this list. Nevertheless, LeBron James is perhaps the closest thing to Michael Jordan we’ve seen when it comes to dominating a game. When his career is all said and done, despite coming in at #2, LeBron may still go down as the NBA’s best player ever.

Stephen Curry

Dethroning the King for the #1 spot, Stephen Curry is the NBA – and world’s – best player, When you watch Curry, you’re watching history being made because not only is his team on pace to break the NBA best win-loss record, but never before have we seen a player score like him. He’s just like watching a basketball video game character with his ability to score the ball.
