Kobe- his scoring ability was amazing and when he got hot it was so impressive to watch. But, I don't like chuckers, don't like the way it was all about him and he was a shit team-mate imo, the way he tried to be like jordan, demanding better from them- jordan himself admitted he had to mellow out.

KG- amazing, intense player. Great two-way player, one of the best locker-room guys ever, great personality.

Ray allen- amazing ice-cold shooter. Loved him till hebwent to miami, will still miss him. The 3 to save miami is one of the best big-time shots ever in the nba.

Dirk- awesome player. Will miss him just for the one leg fader!

Pierce- love him. Big-time player, made himself one of the best without being an athlete. So smooth, love the way he'd look slow and still somehow beat his man to the hoop.

Nash- huge fan of nash, who isn't!? Will miss him a lot.

Duncan- there's my vote. One of the best big-men to ever play the game. Great pro, amazing player, great team-mate, winner. Model nba player.

Kobe had that special aura around him. Even when Lakers sucked, we all still had to watch Lakers because of him. Very few players on that list have that
Kobe for me.. had the MJ like presence... where you believed he would go off and put on a show

Lewis shouldn't be on that list though lol...

Tim Duncan
In my opinion, he is the greatest PF ever to play this game. Say whatever you want about Charles Barkely, Kevin Mchale, Karl Malone and whoever you want, Duncan is far better than anyone of those.
Nothing flashy about him, but great fundematals and a pattern you design based on it.

KG and TD. Growing up, my favorite individual matchup to watch was those two, they'd both put up huge numbers but in such a different fashion, it was awesome to watch. KG is my favorite player, but I've always had a great amount of respect for TDs game.

After those two, I think I'll miss Dirk the most. It's so fun to watch him toy with defenders. His and Nash's skill level is just off the charts, and they beat you with their skill, angles, and smarts.
