Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers (4) Kobe Bryant is one of the greatest basketball players ever to play the game.

Durant won a franchise-record seven championships with his Thunder in 2015.
Carmelo Anthony, New York Knicks (5) Anthony was named to the All-NBA First Team in 2013, the first time he ever was on the first team.
The All-Stars have won two NBA titles and three championships with their franchise.
The Knicks are currently 6-1 in their last seven games, but Anthony has struggled.
They’ve lost five of their last six games, including a season-opening loss to the Miami Heat on Saturday.4.
Chris Paul, Los Angels Clippers (6) Paul is the most decorated player in the NBA, having won six NBA championships.
He is also the highest-paid player in NBA history.

The Cavaliers are currently 8-2 with a chance at the playoffs.
Carmel Anthony, Los Linceos (6-) Anthony is one-and-done with the New Orleans Pelicans, but the former All-American is a lock to make the All of NBA.

Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma Thunder (8-) Westbrook is a three time NBA All Time scoring leader and two time All-Awards winner.

Wade is the fourth-leading scorer in the league with 4.3 points per game, which is tied for the second-highest scoring average in the past 15 years.
Wade also has one of, if not the, best playoff streaks in NBA annals, with consecutive playoff series wins.

The reigning MVP and All-time leader in career points scored is now just one step away from becoming the all time scoring leader in NBA.
Carmine Sabonis, Indiana Pacers (8+) Sabonis is one among the greatest point guards ever to wear a uniform and is the all Time leading scorer in NBA History.
The Indiana Pacers are currently 9-2 in their past 10 games, which could be their best record since 2008, when they went 6-4.
LeBron Jr., Cleveland Cavaliers (-) LeBron is one day away from breaking the record of career points (9,082) by a Cavaliers player.
He ranks No. 3 on the NBA all-timers list with 9,742 points, a mark that would also tie the record set by Kobe Bryant.
