Tim Duncan, hands down. Three NBA Titles since 99, AVERAGES a double-double/game. Not very flashy, but then, none of the Spurs are.

Not much else to say here. The Spurs'll prolly win the title again this year, jes cuz TIMMAH is here!!!:)

Even though he's a scuz, I gotta go with Kobe. The man is having one of the best statistical seasons ever.

Best ball hog in the game who has the uncanny ability to make players worse like Lamar Odom. Awesomely selfish, arrogant and no one in the NBA seems to want to play with him.

The question is not who is the best teamate, the best player is Kobe Bryant! It's not his fault that Lamar Odom is a perennial underachiever and that the Laker's squad as a whole is not much better than a college team. Everyone acts like the team being mediocre is his fault. Who's the coach of the team again??? Why is it Kobe's responsibility to not only put up 40 pts a night but also keep the team motivated? It's laughable! Kobe is the biggest offensive threat since Michael Jordan and all you haters can't deal with the greatness.

Michael Jordan made all the players around him better. So did Magic Johnson. Does Kobe? :icon_shrug:

I didn't say Kobe was the best of all time, MJ made a great team the greatest. Michael could allow his team to make plays for him because he trusted them. Honestly I can understand why Kobe doesn't pass much, his teamates are just simply not to be trusted. If Kobe launches a three in tripple coverage he still has a better chance of making it then Kwame dunking it. It's sad to say, but it is true. I'll be the first to admit Kobe is not the great all around player MJ was, but he's the best there is today.:icon_evil:

You may be right. I'll be honest, I haven't had the time to watch as much NBA the last few years. I know my dad never misses a Lakers game. Kobe has been putting up some crazy totals this year. I know he's had talent around him in previous seasons, but I don't know that much about this years team.

Gotta go w/ CRM, while Kobe isn't my favorite player, I think he is the Best player in the league. Look at the individual numbers. Unfortunately I have been able to watch quite a few games this year. Kobe gets his almost every night.

If the question was best teammate the answer would be different (Nash, Duncan, D Wade, to name a few).

Who's the most overpaid, overated, self-important person in the game? (hint: apparently, also the only person involved in the league that still hangs out with Luc Longley)
