Default Who's game is the most aesthetically pleasing?

We all know that Lebron and Durant are two of the best players in the game. Lebron is the most complete basketball player today, and Durant is a helluva player. But, in your opinion, who is the most fun to watch out of all the hoopers today?

I'll start it off with Kobe. He's inefficient, yes, but when he's on fire the stuff he does on the court are amazing to watch. Some of the best footwork in the game. I also like Paul Pierce. These two are creative when it comes to getting shots off.

Let's stay on topic, yes?

Rubio, Rondo, and Nash. The pass first point guards are much more fun to watch than Rose and Westbrook.

Chris Paul and Derrick Rose far as how likely they are to do something id call beautiful on any given play. I also love watching Nash and Tim Duncan. Id watch the highlights of a 30 point game from Duncan over perhaps anyone in the league Rose aside.

I agree that Tim Duncan's game is beautiful in the classical sense of the word. No movement is wasted. It's like watching the Parthenon. The polar opposite of Dirk, who's more like a weird contemporary art piece.

Nash has an incredibly fluid, aesthetically pleasing game, like Rubio (though Rubio's shot looks horrible).
Derrick Rose is the ultimate "wish fulfillment" player. You watch him and wish you were able to do what he does.

Then you have pretty much the entire former Celtics Big 4 - Rondo for the moves, Pierce for the footwork, Allen for the way he moves without the ball, Garnett for the sense of purpose in everything he does.

Ginobili, Scola.
KD and Tmac for the smooth effortlessness.

Lots of different styles that work for me.

Batmanu. The way he plays gives me thousand fanboy orgasms. It's not just pleasing to watch him.. it's beautiful.

Rose is awesome as well. This shot is pure awesomeness. http://youtu.be/OJAcu6JtU2I?hd=1&t=35s

Wade. His circus shots are something else.
