Worthy, James:

I wanted to compile a pretty complete list of each player's best individual season. Taking into account everything overall, including the regular season and playoffs, stats, awards, etc.

It's obviously not complete yet. If anyone has corrections or new players to add, post 'em. I need help finishing the list, and I want it to be pretty comprehensive. I'd like to be able to just search for a player's name and find their best season played so far, according to general consensus.

Yeah, I was considering 2005-06. But I felt like AI's MVP season was overall his best, even though not his best statistical year. He led his team to the finals that year and also made All-NBA First and won the scoring and steals title.

Thoughts from anyone else? Change AI's to 2005-06 or keep 2000-01?

Dirk was a beast in 06, but I would argue 2011 was a prime. The man was unguardable for everyone in the league. You couldn't cheat and put a small forward on him anymore to get under his skin. Kind of the same thing for Lebron. You could argue 2009 was his prime, but 2012 is the season he really put it all together (posts moves, confidence, etc.)

Good points. Maybe I'll list a runner-up year for ones that are really close. He did go off in the 2011 post season.

Some of them are pretty tricky. Stats help, but some of these seasosn you really have to take into context. Like Big Z, I would say his prime was in 99. He was more mobile and efficient. His 02-03 season was just him and Ricky Davis putting up numbers on a bad team. And he shot 44%, which is pretty bad for a center.

Chris Webber - 01-02
Dennis Rodman - 91-92
Peja Stojakovic -03-04


And I would change Alonzo Mourning's prime to 99-2000. But both seasons are really close.

I'd say rays best yr was 04-05 and not because it was statistically his best yr but the success he led the sonics too considering that pretty much every analyst said they would finish last or near last in the western conference along with the fact that he took the spurs to the limit in the second round without their second and third leading scorers (lewis and radmonovic)

also pierces best yr has to be 2002-2003 because even though 06 might have been a better yr statistically he led the celtics to the conference finals and was a straight beast
