1. Irving is a problem child. Replace him with Giannis and Luka
2. inconsistent because coming back from injury
here's all you need to know
Dallas Mavericks might be the best team of all time
Real NBA starts at playoffs, now its just shooting contest.
Lillard definetly has the potential to be a top 10-15 player this year, and jokic is having an mvp season.
The top10 players are probably (in no specific order):
Lebron James, Anthony Davis, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kawhi Leonard, Luka Doncic, Steph Curry, James Harden, Kevin Durant, Damian Lillard and Nikola Jokic
Then there are players that are just outside the top 10 like:
Joel Embiid, Kyrie Irving, Paul George (even though he choked hard in the playoffs), Jayson Tatum, Russel Westbrook
The league has more possessions now because the shot clock now resets to 14 seconds instead of 24 when a team gets fouled or when they rebound their own missed shot. So that results in more scoring. Triple doubles aren't even THAT exceptional nowadays, even though they are still very hard to achieve.
And to answer your second question, Curry was injured last season and so he's a still a bit inconsistent, he will return to his normal form eventually.
1. Add Doncic and Giannis there and maybe remove Kyrie if you want to count best of the best.
2. Some players average 35 points with ease. Of course, these stats are the average score their best performances can be double their average. Plus Steph Curry is a 3 pointer beast, he literally doesn't miss.
Oh, and Harden got traded to the Nets.
check new kids, herro, doncic, jokic, tatum, antetokumpo
thank you all for answers, love you guys
Jokic (MVP so far this season), Lillard, Tatum, Giannis, Kawhi, Paul George, Doncic and Embiid are all better than Kyrie.
Because players get hot and cold, depends on their matchups, how their teammates are playing etc.
U really forgot the best one in NBA Luka Doncic and he is also from my country :D
In last 10 years:
Everyone shoot 3s
Most players soft and floping
Refs handing out technicals and fouls too much
Rookies play no defense anymore
Some people think LeFraud is GOAT
Dont use N-words in title ffs.
There are also another good players but in weaker teams: De'Aaron Fox (Kings) ,Donovan Mitchell (Jazz),DeMar DeRozan (Spurs),Joel Embiid (sixers),Gordon Hayward (hornets),Trae Young (hawks),Jimmy Butler (heat), Zach LaVine (bulls),Bradley Beal (wizards), Derrick Rose (Pistons), Devin Booker (suns), Damian Lillard (trail blazers),C J Mc Collum (trail blazers),Luka Doncic (mavs), Nikola Jokic (nuggets) ,Jamal Murray (nuggets),Shai Gilheous-Alexander (thunder), Zion Williamson (pelicans), Brandon Ingram (pelicans),Ja Morant (grizzlies),James Harden and Jhon Wall (rockets)
to me basketball is sooo boring to watch =/ I wish I liked it
to have one more good level sport to watch as entertainment
10. Luka (hasnt proven yet)
