Fun watching: Kobe, Wade, Rose, Griffen, Roy, Dirk, Melo, Nash, Dhoward

Not fun: CP3(too slow and no enthusiasm), LeBron(Drives to the basket like a running back on most plays looking for a foul), Durant(No excitement), Tim Duncan(too slow)

Everyone you named is actually fun to watch, except for Tim Duncan.

Kobe and Rose are the most fun to watch. Carmelo is fun to watch as well.

Chris Paul doesn't really make the game exciting for me anymore. He was fun back in 06-07 though. And Durant isn't that exciting, Westbrook is more fun to watch than him

Blake is very fun to watch. Monta Ellis is too. Kobe is fun to watch but not as much as he used to be. 2008 and before it was a show to watch him go to work. Rose and Westbrook are great with their explosiveness and sick layups.

Good list I watch Paul play to count the number of screens he gets. But yes he's definately boring to watch...same thing on every play...Go over the screen its an easy floater, go under the screen open jumper, a flop here and flop flop there.

Durant for me is very exciting to watch. take guys off the dribble, one dribble pull up, curls, just nice fundamental mixed with some flash.


Nothing excitng about Lebron unless he's slamming the hammer on someone, so i gotta agree about him being boring.


I'd add deron williams, Monta Ellis, John wall westrbook and afew other i cant think of right now to the list of exciting players, when i think about it, i'll re-post.

LOL...he draws a ton of fouls, but he's still fun to watch. Melo gets mugged alot with no whistle on the blcok it's criminal the way he doesnt get deserved calls.

Surprised that Duncan is still not yet on the list?

I thought people here find fundamentals skills boring
