#1 - Lebron James - Arguably number 1 this season, and arguably number 1 all time. James has turned back the clock in his 15th season in the league. He is lofting in a career best 3-point percentage and near best career free throw percentage at 76.1%. LeBron continues to find ways to improve and the fact he can do it all makes him number 1 on the list.

#2 - James Harden - As strong a contender as any for the #1 spot, Harden has led his team even in the midst of key injuries around him. Harden controls his team with his amazing ability to get to the hole in a variety of fashions. He's found a team and coach that suit him and he's playing phenomenal basketball. Opponents should definitely Fear the Beard.

#3 - Giannis Antetokounmpo - 'wipes tear' my little boy is all grown up. Giannis is having a coming of age party this season and almost nobody can stop him. The young Buck is wrecking the league with his 7-foot wingspan terrorising teams on the defensive end and his long strides carrying him to the cup from halfway in a heartbeat.

#4 - Kevin Durant - Durant has always been a top two player and I have no doubt he still has that talent. But as of right now, Durant is working in a system which asks less of him that it does the others on this list. Durant is still tearing it up and with Curry's absence he has the opportunity to shine brighter. Being surrounded by the stars of Golden State takes some opportunity away.

#5 - Kyrie Irving - An improved defence led by an increase in steals and deflections, the same killer finishing touches leading to improbably buckets and less iso-plays. I would call Irving's move from Cleveland to Boston a wild success. Irving has flourished in Brad Stevens' system and his increased efficiency is a direct correlation of Irving playing smarter not harder.
