NBA Talk #72: Top players that Deserves more Recognition
Image Source What's up basketball fans! I am here again @dwin0603 to give you another exciting basketball discussion for another episode of NBA Talk, and today we will talk about the players that deserve more recognition than they actually have. Let's start! In the NBA, the best basketball players all over the world are playing in this league and there are a lot of guys that play at a very high level but don't receive much praise or recognition. Because of the huge volume of great players in the league, sometimes, those players are just being taken for granted by us fans but the truth is they deserve more recognition from us. Today, I am going to break down the top players who deserve more credit. Nikola Vucevic Image Source Vucevic has been playing the best basketball of his career with the Orlando Magic this season and he's about to be a free agent but nobody is talking about him when it comes to free agency talks. He made his first all-star appearance and he's currently on his prime. His offense has grown a lot and that can help contending teams big time. Kemba Walker Image Source When talking about the best elite point guards in the league, we always forgot to include Kemba Walker in the conversation. Westbrook, Irving, and Curry may be better than Kemba but there are times that he can match up against them especially when he is in the zone. Kemba is also the main reason why Charlotte has the chance to be in the playoffs this season. Kyle Kuzma Image Source Kuz is a little underrated in my opinion. When talking about young stars, people were getting over hyped about Brandon Ingram and Jayson Tatum but the fact is, Kuzma is outplaying them all season long. He's one of the biggest steals of the draft in NBA history and the Lakers should keep him for their future. He's getting even better as he gains experience from playing. Blake Griffin Image Source We know Blake Griffin is one of the most athletic and explosive players of all time. He's known for his thunderous slams but at this point of his career, he's now mastering his mid-range and outside shooting. Griffin is the Pistons' best offensive weapon and he's also the one who's making the plays. But despite all of his contributions, the Pistons are still at the bottom of the playoff picture that's why Blake is not getting a lot of attention he deserves. Stephen Curry Image Source Stephen Curry is the best point guard in the league today no doubt about it. He's famous all over the world but the reason why I include him in this list is that he's not been in the Top MVP candidates conversation. Curry is the top scorer in Golden State and he's the best player there in my opinion (sorry Kevin Durant). So, I think he should be in the MVP conversation, top 5 at least. That is all for today folks! I would love to hear your opinions about this article so drop your comments now and let's have some basketball talk! 😁
