Default Re: Who's game is the most aesthetically pleasing?

I like watching the players with unique games- the ones where if you could only see their silhouette you'd know who it was from their moves.

Being an OKC fan my two are KD and Russ. KD because of his crazy length and lankiness- I swear sometimes when he dunks it looks like the ball is carrying him up to the rim.

I'd have to say Westbrook is my favorite just because of the sheer reckless he brings to his game. Anyone who has ever accused him of not caring about a team or being a stat padder is effing insane- nobody hits the hardwood as often as he does if they only care about themselves. Westbrook has this strange kind of herky-jerk athleticism that makes it seem like he's always ready to explode.

Even though the Lakers are kind of our nemesis I admire Kobe's game just for the drama of it. I was in awe when he hit a three and held up his finger to shush the crowd during the 2008 olympics gold medal round. Kobe has a certain kind of ruthless to his game that doesn't seem to recognize anybody else on the court but Kobe.

Nash. Kobe when he's not chucking. Chuck mode Kobe is painful to watch. Westbrook is another guy.
I wish we had more top tier back to the basket centers. I miss watching Shaq play.

wade

when it comes to creativity going to the basket, and shooting acrobatic shots around the basket, only jordan did it better.

Baron Davis also used to be fun to watch!

Rose, you know he's coming and he's going to put some dynamo in it. Its like watching a great running back. Is fluid like water and lite like air.

Lebron, power, flair, speed and versatily are a rare combo. Great Bball sense can morph into any other position.

Chris Paul, he creates options with great execution and clear thinking. I love the way he kind of hovers into a situation and then figures a way to make it explode.

KG, plays all out and with crazy intensity. Very rare in any sport to see intensity and versatilty together in one of the best defensive executors in the league. KG makes more right defensive plays than I ever seen in the sport. He's like a great linebacker (Lawrence Taylor) with his decision making.

Will like to see more of Rubio.

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

haha... who wuda thunk.

I'll make a homer pick, too, then. I like Deron's game the most because he seems to always be in control. He seems like he can dominate people from the PG position in a way other players can't.

Nobody else has Deron's skill set and intelligence.

Definitely Rose,
And no one is close
Maybe Kobe
When his shots scream "Can't guard me!"

Forget Lebron
Now that his athleticism is gone
Don't listen to pauk
Lebron's ring is a fluke

If you say Wade
I'd ask why your brain is delayed
He is a charlatan with bells and whistles
And he's got nothing on Kobe's missiles

Return of the Rose
Coming soon this June
When the Bulls make the Finals
And shock the world in its final hours

I was expecting a flood of LeBron votes.

Not sure if he can still deliver like he used to, but i always liked Brandon Roy's game. It's pretty to watch.

his crafty handles, driving, cutting, inside game, mid range, 3's, delivering in the clutch, passing abilities. One of my favorite player to watch.

Did I see someone say LeBron's game isn't exactly pretty?



He produced arguably the most beautiful play of this past season.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CCAQx7VS6k

Plays the passing lanes like an ARTIST, and it's a joyous sight to see a runaway freight train of solid steel gallop across the court like a striding gazelle. And, when he's got his jumper falling, his game looks so amazing... watching all that brute strength with a feathery touch from beyond.

Other picks:

Kyrie Irving
Derrick Rose
Russell Westbrook
Dirk Nowitzki (avant-garde)
T-Mac (those vintage flashes)

I love to see some great passing, so guys like CP3, Rubio, Nash, LeBron, Rondo... Also enjoy to watch guys like Kobe or Durant.
