Here are my top 5 player lists for NBA, FIBA, Euroleague, and in the world overall:


Top 5 Euroleague players:

1. Vassilis Spanoulis

2. Juan Carlos Navarro
(when healthy, he is not healthy right now)

3. Dimitris Diamantidis

4. Milos Teodosic

5. Bo McCalebb


Top 5 NBA players:

1. LeBron James

2. Kevin Durant

3. Kobe Bryant
(he's not as good as he used to be, and he might drop down next year)

4. Dirk Nowitzki
(but he looks like he might be getting old now)

5. Dwyane Wade
(his game seems to be regressing though)


Top 5 FIBA players:

1. Kevin Durant

2. Vassilis Spanoulis

3. Juan Carlos Navarro
(when healthy, he is not healthy right now)

4. Luis Scola
(he's always been more important to Argentina than Manu, but does not get the credit due to NBA marketing schemes)

5. Manu Ginobili/Pau Gasol
(I can't choose which one, so I give them a tie)

Guys like Kirilenko, McCalebb, and Teodosic are up there too.

A lot of NBA players are overrated in FIBA basketball (Kobe, Paul, Williams, Dirk, Howard, LeBron, Melo, etc)


Top 5 players in the world:


1. LeBron James

2. Kevin Durant

3. Vassilis Spanoulis

4. Kobe Bryant

5. Juan Carlos Navarro
(when healthy, he is not healthy right now)

Kobe is my favorite player ever, and I had him at #1 up until last year, but he's getting a bit old now, and he's not the same player he used to be. Sorry Kobe.

Are you secretly Spanoulis? I mean. LEBRON, DURANT, SPANOULIS.

One of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn't belong...
