Over the years, the NBA has been home to some of the most talented basketball players from all around the globe. The league features a lot of amazing players, but even among them, some players are simply the best.
With each decade, the said players get replaced by another set of fabulous players in the NBA. For the 80s, it was Larry Bird and Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon in the 90s, Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan in the 00s. You get the idea right?
Now, with the 2010s decade over, fans have been debating which players truly dominated it. While the names of LeBron James and Stephen Curry will be the first ones to come to any fan’s mind, what if we are talking about the 2010 All-Decade NBA Team with 5 players?
Well, The Associated Press unveiled their list of the 2010 All-Decade NBA Team. The said team featured Stephen Curry (G), James Harden (G), Kevin Durant (F), LeBron James (F), and Dirk Nowitzki (C).
Considering how the 2010s went down, the team looks pretty accurate to be honest. But the level of talent in the NBA is at an all-time high right now. So it is understandable that some of the players have been subbed from the list.
Players like Kawhi Leonard, Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, Anthony Davis, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryant, Paul George, and Giannis Antetokounmpo. These are players that fans believe could have gotten a spot on the list too.
Honestly, all the players that were snubbed from the list have had a great decade. But when we compare them to the players that actually made the cut, it is quite obvious the list is pretty accurate.
Unfortunately, like many other debates, not all fans will agree to AP’s list. But I for one, definitely agree with it.
