As we all know, there are many great NBA players. Here we have a look at the top 6 ranking NBA athletes right now.
The 36-year-old is Guard/Forward for The Los Angeles Lakers and ranks at number 1. For the first time in his career, he led the league in assists last year at 35 years of age. He has got 9 finals appearances and 4 championships. This all in 10 years of playing basketball in the NBA. When it comes to a game where a team needs to win, he is a must-have player.
Kevin Durant plays Forward position for the Brooklyn Nets. He is 32 years of age and ranks at number 2. One of the toughest injuries in basketball, ‘Achilles’, hit Kevin Durant and made him miss a full year of playing basketball. By only playing 19 games this last season, fans are concerned for his health as his overall condition is still in question.
Kawhi is only 29 years of age and plays for the LA Clippers at Forward position. His rank is 3. The Clippers team fell short on their game last year. Now with Leonard back on the floor, they are playing a great game. It is expected that Kawhi will be improving in the stretch run and postseason.
Giannis plays Forward/Center for the Milwaukee Bucks at only 26 years of age. His previous ranking was at 5. With this past season, the team has not done too well, although he still has a great outside shot and he still possesses a great defense.
This 26-year-old plays for the Philadelphia 76ers at Center position. His previous ranking was 12. Now is the time that most fans are saying is his peak time. He is playing his best games in years. He is in the best shape of his life and scoring more than ever.
Nikola plays for the Denver Nuggets at Center position and went up from rank 7 to 6. The 26-year-old averages a triple-double with a 50-40-90 shooting line, which has never happened before. Definitely one of the most dominant offensive players in the NBA right now, Nikola is more aggressive than ever.
