Top 10 Best Basketball Players – Known for their unique skills!

Only basketball lover will get the true essence of this article. Did you know? Back when peach baskets were used as the hoop, every time someone scored, a referee had to fetch the ball by climbing a ladder. The game was invented in 1891 by Dr. James Naismith. Now this game is among one of the most famous games in the world. Today, we got a list of best basketball players that are known for their unique abilities.

There are lots of Best Basketball Players in the world but we had put our best effort to create this list so please enjoy the list to the end.

10.Oscar Robertson:-

He was born on 24 November 1938. Oscar is the only player in NBA history to average a triple-double. His career averages are insane. Top rebounding for a point guard and about 9 assists to go with 20+ points. Robertson was born in poverty in Charlotte, Tennessee, and grew up in a segregated housing project in Indianapolis. He was ranked as the 36th best American athlete of the 20th century by ESPN.

9.Shaquille O’Neal:-

This guy not only showed that people need to upgrade their hoops, but it also showed that there is no such thing as “limits” and I think that Shaq showed this.

O’Neal was born on March 6, 1972, in Newark, New Jersey, who played high school basketball (he was an All-State guard) and was offered a basketball scholarship to play at Seton Hall.

He currently I think the most experience pro-basketball player on the NBA Roster being on currently 15 years.

O’Neal is, without doubt, the best center in the history of the game.

8.Bill Russell:-

Bill Russell is simply amazing. During his career, his team won 11 championships in 13 years, and that is pretty much the best achievement ever in the NBA.

Bill Russell was born on February 12, 1934, in West Monroe, Louisiana.

He has 11 NBA rings more than anybody and won 11 championships in 13 seasons. I personally think Bill Russell should be higher on this list. He is the big man of all time and had no ego.

7.Kareem Abdul-Jabbar:-

Kareem was not just the greatest NBA player all time, but he was the best college basketball player of all time. He went to a school where he was the only good player on his team and led them to 4 championships. His statistics were stacked! This guy was impossible to cover

He was born on April 16, 1947, in New York City. This guy scored the most points and is the coolest and most unique player ever. He invented the 1 arm hook shot!

6.Wilt Chamberlain:-

Most dominating player ever. Holds 71 NBA records with 62 by himself. 65 or more points in a game 15 times. 50 or more points in a game 118 times.

He was born on August 21, in Philadelphia, 1936 but unfortunately, he is no more. People say Wilt Chamberlain only dominated because he played in a weak era, but I don’t see anyone else do the things Wilt did playing in the same ‘weak era’.

He almost averaged 30 RPG per game and 50pts in the same season how isn’t he the best. He was one of the best post players of all time.

5. Kobe Bryant:-

Kobe Bryant can control a game, he is a great player and also a great leader.  I know MJ is a Super Star but Kobe is the next big thing. He can defend team’s best players, he can shoot from anywhere and he has five championships.

He was born on August 23, 1978, in Philadelphia. Kobe is blessed with more natural talent than any other player ever. He has done things on the court no other player at his position has done including Jordan. Kobe is the most beloved NBA player in the world especially in Asian countries like China, Philippines, Taiwan, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and other Asian countries.

4.Larry Bird:-

He was very good at shooting too. He is an inspiration to young players of today. He still is involved in basketball because he sees it as a valuable sport. He should be at number 3, because he was a great shooter with few dunks, unlike Jordan who had many dunks to increase his shooting percentage.

He was born on December 7, 1956, in West Baden Springs, Indiana. Bird received a scholarship to play college basketball for the Indiana University Hoosiers in 1974.

The bird was the best player because he played smart basketball. At his peak, the best overall player of all time: Scoring, Passing, Rebounding, Team Defence, and making his team better. He is at number #4 in the best basketball players list.

3.LeBron James:-

LeBron is amazing from any spot on the court. He’s not the next MJ, he’s LeBron James making the game he loves his own. No one has ever done it the way he has. He’s an outstanding person & basketball player. He goes above and beyond to help his team.

He was born on December 30, 1984, in Akron, Ohio. LeBron is a really good basketball player and he has won a lot of MVP awards.

LeBron James is the best basketball player ever because he can play every position and can shoot anywhere, post up, drive, and every other aspect of the game.

2.Magic Johnson:-

Magic was the only player besides Bird to make his team better. He played in the hardest era and was the best at that time. He is the only player who can play every single position with perfection in NBA.

He was born on August 14, 1959, Lansing, Michigan. Not as good scorer as Jordan or Kobe and not as good driver as James but no player has ever had his passing ability, his shooting ability, his driving ability and his defensive ability.

He is the only player that can play all five positions with an outstanding performance. Just that!

1.Michael Jordan (Among One of the best basketball players):-

Michael Jordan is not just the best basketball player but the athlete ever he was the strongest pound for pound non-injury prone because of his fitness. Michael Jordan is the best player ever. He was so dominant, so good, so amazing; nobody has reached his level. 

He was born on February 17, 1963, in Brooklyn, New York. His name is enough to describe his potential.

Without a doubt the best player/athlete the sports world has ever seen. And there is a good reason for it. Because every time when a new rising star is born (basketball), people will compare him to Michael Jordan but Jordan always comes out as the best till this day and forever.
