One thing many sports fans will not agree on is who the best player of a certain sport is. While debates can be fun and entertaining, the making of all-time lists can have many people divided. ESPN recently put out a list that answered: “who is the best NBA player of the decade?” The network tweeted out the top five players in their ranking, which was organized by a group of their experts.
It may come as no surprise to anyone, but LeBron James finished first, while Steph Curry came in second and Kevin Durant third. James Harden and Kawhi Leonard were tied for the fourth spot, which is reasonable considering their respective MVP runs and title contentions.
Of course, as with any list, people had something to say.
