Anyone who appreciates skill, fundamentals, leadership and players who have a complete mastery of the game would naturally be a fan of those two. In fact, I see more Kobe/TD fans than any other combination (team biases aside). It's just good taste.

why do you guys like those players and when did you first watch them play?

I like nate robinson because he is a small under rated player. Kind of like how i am. He proves a lot of people wrong and i love the energy he brings to the game.

The first time i ever heard of him was in the 2006 nba dunk contest. I watched him jump over spud webb and ever since that, i became a fan.

I started watching around 2001 or so.

I discovered the NBA via NBA Live 01, I digged the game so much that I decided to give the league a go.

The first player that caught my attention was Kobe. The Lakers were the team of the moment, and despite Shaq being the most visible player, I just wasn't a fan of him. Kobe was a young player then (22 year old), he had a lot of talent and was one of the best in the L, but he wasn't a perfect player and wasn't as dominant as Shaq, but I liked his game, his determination and all. He's been my favorite player since that day.

As my interest was growing, I got to explore other horizons. Tim Duncan instantly hit me as an amazing athlete. I didn't like the Spurs and I still don't, but he was quite a player, I loved watching him anchor that defense, dominate offensively with his wide array of post moves, and that shot with the glass

Melo...part of the new era of basketball...is arguably the best in the league when it comes to offensive onslaught nxt to the kobe...game is so smooth...and is also arguably the most clutch player in the league....besides his game he is the outcast of the 03 draft class which is why i root for him....and he is a badboy in a sense..he is constantly the source of controversy (whether its fair or not) which is remnance of a time when attitude and non conformity stood out for stars
