The 2019 nba finals are over. I have to say that the playoffs are the stage for superstars.
First of all, we would like to congratulate the Toronto Raptors for winning the team’s first championship.
However, although the Golden State Warriors were defeated, he showed us the tenacity of the defending champion. Although KD and KT were injured, they never gave up.
We just updated this list last month, but after today, I think this list has to be updated.
Some players have performed well in the regular season, but the performance in the playoffs is not good, so the rankings have changed. Let’s take a look.
Top 10 best NBA players in 2019:
1. LeBron James
Although many people don’t think LeBron is the first person in the league, we still believe that he is the best basketball player in the world!
Although the Lakers have not made the playoffs this season, LeBron is still able to average 26+8+8.
Of course, we know that the data doesn’t tell everything, but the data can prove that LeBron can still control the stadium.
If the reason why the Lakers failed this season, we believe that there are two points:
2. Kevin Durant
KD was injured and was enough to affect his career, but we still ranked him in second place because he was too strong, both offensive and defensive.
In this year’s playoffs, KD can average 35+5+5 before the injury. He can score in front of anyone and no one can defend him.
Although KD is unlikely to come back next season, we really hope that he will return to the pre-injury level after he returns from injury.
3. Kawhi Leonard
Kawhi is FMVP, genuine!
Whether it is offensive or defensive, he is a nightmare for opponents.
What we like the most is his leadership temperament. When the team is in trouble, he will always come forward and save the team.
4. Steph Curry
Although failed to lead the Warriors to win, Steven showed us the strength of an MVP and the determination to never give up.
In fact, I hope that this man can lead the Warriors to win this year and win their first FMVP trophy, but we all know that the Raptors have won.
Stephen, although failed, in the eyes of the fans you are also a warrior, a real man!
5. James Harden
Needless to say, James Harden is the best shooting guard now.
Although the Rockets have not been good at the beginning of the season, the Rockets’ record has improved in the second half of the season, which is inseparable from James Harden’s unsolved offense.
This season, James Harden broke a number of historical records, such as 30+ points in a row, 60+ points in a row.
Do you still like him when you see these wonderful performances?
6. Russell Westbrook
Russell has scored three double-doubles in the regular season for three consecutive seasons.
Maybe we are used to his greatness, but for a point guard, it is very difficult to reach such data.
So why is this list only in the sixth place?
I think this is related to his ability to control the course and the stability of the team’s record.
7. Giannis Antetokounmpo
Giannis’ courage and determination are admirable and he is a true contender.
But his ability to project in the middle and long distance really needs to be improved. Can you imagine the defender defending KD and LBJ with a few feet?
If he can improve his shooting ability during the offseason, I think he will become very scary.
8. Anthony Davis
Anthony Davis’s ability is undoubted, he can even enter the top 5, but this season he suffered from injuries, leading to a decline in rankings.
Most importantly, in the middle of the season, he filed a trade application, which led to the breakdown of his relationship with the team management.
Therefore, after the All-Star Game, he can only get limited playing time per game.
But we believe that his ability has not been reduced, and will be able to give us wonderful performances next season.
9. Paul George
If it was a month ago, Paul George might rank better.
But in the most recent month, his performance has declined, which is the main reason for the recent poor record of Oklahoma City Thunder.
10. Joel Embiid
The healthy Joel Embiid is definitely a nightmare for other teams in the league!
He can not only get the demand in the paint, but also can shoot 3 points on the outside.
What we like the most is his dreams at the rim, often making the opponent unable to figure out the direction.
