For me it's Kobe. He adds some drama to the game, while Lebron or Durant are more like basketball machines, which can be a joy to watch, but it lacks that 'something' extra that others players bring to basketball. Jordan excelled at doing this while being a winning machine too.

I'll never get tired of watching these players do what they do.


Plays like these make Manu Ginobili the most exciting player to watch

I'm also a big fan of watching Ginobili on offense. He's extremely intelligent and deceitful with his movements. Almost Barry Sander-esque when he drives, to be honest, like his hip separates from his body. And a terrific passer with elite vision to boot. Probably the sexiest part of his game is his pace. He looks out of control and never really is. Not sure how that works, but it's awesome.

Anyone who can orchestrate an offense like both teams on the court are puppets is great. I'm speaking of the Rondo's, Nash's, and CP3's of the game.

Bigs? Scola has a beautiful post game. Even more impressive that he's not that great of an athlete and is smaller than many of the PFs he's defended by. Then there's Al Jeff, who probably has the most polished post moves in the game right now.

Lastly, of course the silky players: Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Durant. Heck, I still love watching McGrady play. The guy moves like a Barry White song, even still at his current age and crippled body.

I am a fan of creative passing (nash, lebron, rondo, cp3, kidd etc.) and pure shooting (ray allen, dirk, nash, durant etc.), so i find those guys the most entertaining

I don't understand why some people are disagreeing with others. That's why it's in your OWN opinion. Let's not ruin it with baseless arguments about who's good and what not. I just want to see people's opinions. I've been able to look at some highlights from the players mentioned above, and man I guess I don't pay attention much to these players cause they're all pretty amazing.

My favourite players to watch:

Rose: His drives are a thing of beauty, and when he gets his floater/pull up going is so good to watch. Combine his speed strength and athleticism and he may have one of the most aesthetically pleasing play styles in history.

Dirk: When he has a set jumpshot it really is quite goodlooking, and you just know its going in.

Dwight: I like watching a real big go to work in the paint, sealing for position, putbacks and catching lobs. His post game is also quite pleasing to the eye, its just his touch is rather average and those sweeping and spin hooks hardly ever drop for him. I believe by the time he hits 30 that his post game will be polished and he'll eventually hit the 25ppg mark.
