    The best overall player is

    Kobe Bryant

    #1: he is the most clutch player of the last 3-4 years. In the close games, regular season and play-offs, everyone knows the ball goes to Kobe. Even Shaq acts as a decoy. And the most IMPORTANT part: Kobe makes the big key plays during clutch time.

    Remember the game he had in NBA Finals 2000 against the Pacers in their first title win (I think it was game 4), when Shaq fouled out and Kobe absolutely took over to win that game

    Or the 2000 West Conference Finals, when the Lakers destroyed the Spurs 4-0 (despite the Spurs having homefield advantage and having beaten the Lakers 4-0 in the playoffs in the previous year)? Spurs double teamed Shaq, and played Kobe straight up.
    Kobe shot at will from the perimeter and penetrated at will for dunks and layups.

    Or how about the 2001-2002 West Conf playoffs vs the Spurs, in game 4, when he came out of nowhere, grabbed the offensive rebound against Duncan, Robinson (well-timed jump), and quickly got back up to score in the last few seconds. That gave them a 3-1 series lead, and series was basically over

    #2: he is a tremendous defender -- very quick, great lateral movement, and reacts quickly to passes and shots by the opponents. Averages 2.3 steals a game, blocks 0.8 shots a game, and just plain nasty defender.

    #3: he is a great mid-range shooter, great at penetration, fairly good three pointer, and great foul shooter.
    Some players are great three point shooters (Antoine Walker); great set shot shooters (Wally Szerbiack), great free throw shooters (Reggie Miller)....but very few players pose a weapon inside, outside, and on the free throw line

    #4: his desire to win and to be the greatest leads him to spend his summers working daily to improve his game (he shot the 3-pointers better last year than any other year). Unlike Shaq (who uses the first 41 games to get into shape while partying all summer), Kobe comes to camp in tremendous physical condition.

    #5: he will NOT go on the injured list. Kobe has played through ankle, knee, wrist, back pains. Vince carter sprains an ankle, and he misses half a season. Kobe misses 1 quarter on an ankle sprain.


    Yes, he screwed up with this rape allegation....but that doesn't deter from the fact that he has shown he's the best overall talent, and proven it with his play in the regular and in the post-season.


    #2 best player: Tim Duncan (he's not #1, b/c in clutch situations, someone has to give him the ball. Kobe, with 4 seconds left, can dribble-penetrate and create his own shots; Duncan needs to have someone give him the ball)

    #3 best player: Shaq (if Shaq worked out during the summer, and came to camp in tip top condition, he'd be #1 overall, b/c no one has the size, power, and quickness to stop him).

    #4 Kevin Garnett

    $5 Allen Iverson

    Kobe is good, but Duncan is the ultimate player with tremendous fundamentals on both the offensive AND defensive ends of the floor. This guy does the dirty work and does not want any of the glamour and fame that comes from winning. Overall, no player compares to Tim Duncan, though Kevin Garnett comes awfully close.

    I agree that no one is more fundamentally sound than Duncan.

    But he's at least the 3rd best player in the NBA, behind Shaq and Kobe

    most valuable to his team, allen iverson hands down. not the best overall, only because hes barely 6 foot, but its kinda the same thing in boxing, you cant say a middleweight is the best fighter, but pound for pound AI is the best player. kobe, t-mac, duncan, kg, and a healthy shaq are probably more dominating.
