Default Who are the most artistic players in the league?

By artistic, I mean on-court artistry/creativity.

Here's my first mix that I made of some, i repeat SOME of the most creative players and plays in the NBA. (feat. D-Wade, Ginobili, Rondo, Kobe, J.R. Smith, and T-Mac among others)

Please comment, rate, and give me suggestions for other players/plays to add.

Thanks!

Dwyane Wade, Manu Ginobili, and Rajon Rondo are the craftiest.

Brian Scalabrine honorable mention

Jason Kidd and Allen Iverson are/were pretty crafty as well.

Nice mix by the way

Ricky Rubio is my favorite 'SHOWTIME' player. His passes are just too fun to watch. Imagine his skills in 7 years....

Normally I would say Kobe but he hasn't been the same this season. Likewise with Wade because of injuries.

I gotta go with Chris Paul. And yes, I consider flopping an art.

How does nobody mention D Rose?

He's the most artistic by a mile.

D Rose's moves are on another level and he's silky smooth.

Excellent video. Thanks for sharing/uploading.

Most artistic and creative player.... has to be Steve Nash.

Nash, CP3, Rondo, Manu, Rose, Kobe (his footwork is in that category if you ask me) and sleeper pick, James Harden, I love his game.

Default Re: Who are the most artistic players in the league?

Kobe (footwork, fadeaways, pumpfake-spin-jumpshot)

Lebron (court vision & passing, fadeaways, weaving/slashing/driving/finishing/vertical/dunking, cross/pivot spins, fastbreaks)

Wade (weaving/slashing/driving/finishing, body control, finesse layups, windmill cross)

Jamal Crawford (most extreme artistic/creative ballhandling)

Rose (weaving/slashing/driving, ballhandling and most importantly finishing, agility/body control, athleticism and finesse)

Nash & Rubio (court vision & passing)

Ray Allen (jumpshot... working without the ball/screen tricks)

Dirk (his fadeaway of one leg...)

Default Re: Who are the most artistic players in the league?

Anyways, great mix... but i feel like missing out on some of the best passing NBA has ever seen from Lebron/Nash was a huge mistake... would have made that video as good as it could have ever been...

here is some footage you might have missed:
