My fifth favorite basketball player is Nate Robinson. Nate Robinson has played for many NBA teams in his career these teams include ; New York Knicks, Boston Celtics, Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors, Chicago Bulls, and Denver Nuggets. Nate Robinson was born in May 31, 1994 at Seattle, Washington he grew up to be a twenty first  pick of the NBA. He was the first basketball player to be a three time slam dunk champion ad why this is so amazing is because he is only five nine compared to all the other players who are like six five or six eight. One of the reasons he is one of my favorite players is because he doesn’t let his height get to him. For example one time he had a jump ball with one of the highest players in the NBA so when the ball went up he ran behind the player and the ball got tipped  to him.

My fourth favorite player has one of the longest name in the NBA, is name is Giannis Antetokounmpo. Giannis Antetokounmpo is known for his aggression and has won many awards but one of his best awards was his NBA most improved players. Except for Lebron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo was the only player in the history of basketball to select a team for the NBA all star game. When Giannis Antetokounmpo isn’t on the court he is really funny and nice and he is known for having a heavy accent.

My third favorite basketball player is Lebron James. Lebron James is arguably the best basketball player. He was drafted in two thousand to the Cleveland Cavaliers and then went to the Miami Heat. Then after a bunch of hate and threats Lebron came back to the Cavs. Lebron set out a goal and said he will end the drought and win Cleveland a championship and with the help of his teammates he fulfilled his goal. Lebron James now plays with the Los Angeles Lakers.

My second favorite player is Kyrie Irving. Kyrie Irving was drafted in 2011 to the Cleveland Cavaliers. He is one of the best dribblers in the NBA. He hit one of the clutchest shots in the finals. He also came back three to one in the NBA finals which has never been done before. Kyrie Irving is my favorite player because he is really funny and he not only can dribble really well but he is really good at shooting three pointers. There is also another thing Kyrie Irving is known for and this is his layups. He has one of the nicest most stylish layups in the NBA. Unfortunately Kyrie Irving left Cleveland and is now with the Boston Celtics.

My favorite basketball player is Kobe Bryant. Kobe Bryant is an amazing basketball player and went out as a legend. My dad showed me Kobe Bryant when I was young and he bought me a lot of his jerseys. Kobe was drafted in 1996 to the Charlotte Hornets and went to the lakers for the rest of his career. He is arguable the best basketball player in the NBA and he had one of the best retirement games in the NBA dropping 60 points.
