Michael Jordan
LeBron James
Mike Scott
Curry normally gets to cook Kyle Lowry, an All-Star offensive force but a mediocre defender vastly inferior to VanVleet in both pluck and technique.

Ex: don't include Jordan if you just saw him play on Youtube.

Who are the top 3 players that repeatedly gave you jaw-dropping moments since becoming an NBA fan?


-
Here's mine:
1. Kobe Bryant - 81 points, Kobe62-Dallas61, 60pts in his final game... Kobe was always amazing!

2. Stephen Curry - video game Curry was unbelievable. Out of this world shooting ability.

3. LeBron James - his ability to carry a team, efficiently does everything on the court, Game 7 monster.


Why does watching live on tv matter vs watching the full game replay?

But peaks MJ, Shaq, and Curry. Honorable mentions to KG, Lebron, and Duncan.

Gonna have to go
1. early 2000s Shaq
2. God Mode Playoff Lebron
3. 2011 Dirk

these aren't my favorite players, I root against Lebron HARD. but watching the playoffs runs of these guys was just awesome.

honourable mention: Terminator Kawhi in his last 5ish playoff series, 7 seconds or less Steve Nash in the playoffs when he was forced to score

Watching game 5 of Lebron 07 against Pistons just blew my mind. 29 of the last 30 points etc. Although in my 20s by then I hadn't followed the NBA a heap until the season before.

I remember thinking, is this how people felt when they saw MJ? I was in awe.

Duncan had the biggest carry job to a chip ever in my opinion.

Bird/Shaq/Mj without a specific order after him.
