Default Top 5 Team Leaders in the NBA?

This is based on unselfishness of a particular player. A player that carries the load when the team is in despirate need. A team leader would indicate whether or not to give up. A player that would keep playing until he dies and a guy that motivates his team on every given game night. List yours.

1. Tim Duncan - His affection to the game is like no other. The guy is a pure leader and get's his teammates involved every game. Has an explicit sense to the game. A lock for number 1 on this list. Well, should be.
2. Steve Nash - Steve Nash is one strange mofo. The guy does practically everything, a guy that fits in to every category in the game. Get's his players involved in every game possible. Trusts his teammates down the stretch to knock down shots. Rely's on a healthy Amare Stoudemire to keep them fueled. Plus, one of the most dangerous human beings alive with his ridiculous sense of passing. Motivates teammates as well.
3. LeBron James - Young and Talented with a must-win sense. A player with much motivation to his team. A guy that would step it up when your team needed a score. His unselfishness is extraordinary for a big man. Team Leader for years to come.
4. Kobe Bryant - He has a must-win routine every game. Carries the load every trip down the floor and trusts his teammates knocking down shots. An excellent teacher to his young fellows. A player that would never give up, a player that would keep going until the clock runs out.
5. Baron Davis - Guy showed what he can do in the playoffs. Lived up to the expectations as being the captain to his team. A team motivator with exceptional hype to the game.

1) Tim Duncan - Best teammate in the league, excellent leader.
2) Steve Nash - Clutch player, playmaker, leader, motivator.
3) Lebron James - Easily best player on his team, leader, takes the blame.
4) Kobe Bryant - Easily the best player on his team, leader, take-over mentallity.
5) Dwyane Wade - Dominant in the 4th, never gives up, showed he can carry a team.

Baron Davis? Most leaders don't begin a season overweight as it sets a bad example.

I think Jason Kidd should be in there. The guy never seems to give up and the mavericks are seeking him this off-season mainly for his leadership.

Trust me, Eu, I thought about it for a while. Baron just seemed to have that hype, the motivation to win, the motivation towards his teammates. To me, Deron probably falls in 6 or 7.
