Default The Best Player in the NBA is . . .

I have no clue. I was thinking about this a little while ago and I couldn't come up with any clear names.

Shaq definitely isn't the Shaq of old.

Kobe might be the best perimeter player, but I have reservations about annointing him until he stops jacking up crazy shots at ill-advised times. (I'm a huge Lakers/Kobe fan btw.)

Tracy McGrady is pretty good, but disappears a lot.

Steve Nash is the reigning MVP and he's fun to watch, but there is no way he's #1.

Allen Iverson is awesome, especially now that he's learned to pass effectively. But he doesn't feel like the one.

Lebron is a beast . . . who plays zero defense.

Dwayne Wade needs a jump shot.

Tim Duncan can do it all, but he's just so boring.

Who is the one? And why?

This can't be a legit argument against Tim Duncan being the best player in the league, can it?

Miami without Shaq- still a playoff team probably

Lakers without Kobe- pretty bad but as it is with him they are borderline playoffs

Rockets without Tmac- ugly as hell, but last year proved they need a lot of production from the PG position as well.

Suns without Nash- probably ugly, but this year proved how much of a big impact Amare, Q rich, and Joe Johnson had, but mainly Amare

Lebron- needs to produce in the playoffs first

Dwayne Wade- cant be in this conversation yet

Spurs without Duncan- from the best team in the league to a very average team

Im going with Duncan right now.

Are you guys purposely not mentioning Kevin Garnett?
Does the title say "besides Kevin Garnett" in white letters or something?

I knew I'd forget somebody. I feel sorry for him since he seems to be so off the map in Minnesota.

It wasn't really meant to be. I really like Duncan's game. I guess the reason I'm hesitant to say he's the best player is because he just does everything right but nothing incredibly well. That could be a good argument for why he's the best however.

This seems pretty easily Duncan to me but I don't [censored] about the NBA, really.

Last year's "On/Off" numbers if you want to go that direction, put Duncan, Kidd, Manu, Dirk, and Nash as the most important to their teams.
