Default Top 10 most skilled NBA players

Alright, just to clarify, this isn't about the 10 best players in the NBA, this is based on skill only.

For example: Lamar is more skilled than Marion, but Marion is a better player.

Baron Davis is more skilled than Nash, but Nash is a better player.

T-Mac is more skilled than Lebron, but Lebron is a better player.

Don't quote me on any of these comparisons, I just used them as examples of how this works since some people are bound to get better player/more skilled player mixed up.

I'll add my top 10 later. List your top 10 and analyze them if possible.

What can the Matric do that Odom can't do?

What can LeBron do that McGrady can't do (healthy)?

That's hard to say. We don't get to see these players in practice or playing freely. Thier NBA game is more or less controlled within an offense that's more than likely preventing them from freestylin'.
For example, Rafer "Skip to my Lou" Alston has got some mad skills but I'm pretty sure his name won't be mentioned here.

On the top of my head I'd say(not in any order)

Kobe
Carmelo
AI
Nash
B. Davis
Vince
Ray Allen
Antawn Jamison
Grant Hill

Default Re: Top 10 most skilled NBA players

to make a list of top ten most "skilled" players is a hard ask, its highly debatable, yopu could probably have an arguement for most players...

but yerr, id have baron in there somewhere,

maybe deng?
maybe francis?
maybe ray ray?
maybe joe johnson?

kobe/tmac/pierce/carter?

maybe arenas?
maybe paul?
maybe dorel wright?
maybe rudy gay and foye?
maybe charlie bell?
maybe artest?

its way to hard to judge someone on raw skill...

not that hes shown me anything to belive this...But every team that Darius Miles has been on, his teammates say that he is amazingly talented.

Just never had the head or passion for the game.

"hes been quoted as saying "basketball is a job for me, everyday at training is like coming to work"

It's hard to say, really.

Obviously, it's Kobe. However, I also enjoy watching T Mac.
There are some other very skilled players as well.

Default Re: Top 10 most skilled NBA players

Since I work with younguns in AAU and other Bball leagues let me say this is how we define skills:

Ballhandling
Passing
Penetrating
Scoring in the paint
Scoring on the perimeter
Free throw shooting
Rebounding
Offensive Awareness
Defensive awareness
Man defense
Help Defense
Leadership

we do not define 3 point shooting as a skill

it's not about talent. it's about fundamentals. so I wuold say whoever has the most of those basic fundamentals and can execute them to win games

BTW for any looking to coach youth players this is an excellent site to get you started:

Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett. They are also 2 of the top defensive players so there goes the Kobe, T-mac, Baron Davis, Nash, Dirk etc argument

i don't understand why baron davis is considered more skilled than steve nash. he's bigger, stronger, and more athletic, but in terms of skills i don't see where he'd be considered better. am i missing something? are we weighing post skills double?
