24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
Everyone in the media and every fan has an opinion on who the best basketball players in the world are these days. Some fans will have their bias and some “journalists” will always say something for shock value. It’s always an interesting read and debate, so it’s only fitting that the fastest growing basketball media outlet in the world gets to share their opinion on this topic.
Below is the first ever NBA player ranking we’ve done. This year we countdown the NBA’s Top 10 Players heading into the 2015-16. When the the season tips off on October 27th, these are the 10 best basketball players in the world according to Ball Don’t Stop.
Forget the fact that Kobe Bryant has played just 41 games in the last two years. When he steps on the floor for his 20th season on opening night, he will still be the most skilled basketball player in the game today. The jumper is still wet, the IQ is higher than ever, but people often forget he is arguably the most skilled perimeter player of all-time. As long as Kobe can keep his lungs healthy, he can stay grounded and still be on this list for the next five years. He is still one of the best scorers, shooters, playmakers and post-up players in the game, period. Bean is still the most fundamentally sound player on the planet. Kobe would probably be disgusted by this #10 ranking as well, because to this day the Mamba still believes he is the best player in the world. He’s going to prove a lot of people wrong if he can stay healthy this season.
