Default The League has very little Superstars left

Soon Kobe will be gone, Bron's getting older, You got Durant and Westbrook on the same team blocking each others shine. But after that, nothing, none of these other guys have that superstar quality like players had back in the early-mid 2000's.


Kidd
Nash
Starbury
Steve Francis
Mike Bibby
Iverson
Bryant
Tmac
Pierce
Ray Allen
Vince Carter
Shaq
Duncan
Garnet
Dirk
Webber
Yao
Billups
That whole Detroit team
Baron Davis
Many more... sure I'm missing a few

Such a GOAT time for basketball.

Well if you're gonna count guys like Billups and Bibby then you could say Curry and Lillard are superstars too, no?

If these are what you consider superstars then there is a whole lot more current players that would fit that mold.

Duncan, Shaq, Kobe, Garnett, Dirk, maybe Kidd, T-Mac and maybe Webber were the only real mega-stars back then.

Today we only have LeBron and Durant.

And then there were tons of superstars compared to today, and they were all better.

Dark time for star players.

That's why I didn't mention Nash either.

Although Iverson would have to be mentioned in that group as well

Dude named a bunch of dudes that no one really considers superstars and then had the nerve to say it's only Durant and LeBron. The nostalgia and irrationality is hilarious.

My dude said Mike Bibby
