It’s not a guard thing. It’s not a post thing. It’s just the main thing.
Being the best player on any NBA team is the type of rare air that only the game’s elite will ever get to breathe. And once you get there, that’s when things start to get really fun.
Some of these guys tear out the other team’s heart by raining 3-pointers. Some of them bring opponents to their knees with rim-shaking authority. Some of them have been around for over a decade. Some of them are already carrying the load for their team in just their first or second season.
What do they all have in common? They all ball. Full stop.
These are the best individual players on each of the NBA’s 30 franchises.
