How to select the best player in the NBA draft?
We are at a point in the game where a lot of people are trying to be the next LeBron James, and a lot are trying be the most athletic player in their league.
But what about the best players in the draft?
What about the most dominant players?
How can we find out which players are going to be dominant in the future?
Here are the five most dominant NBA players in 2017, and how to draft them.
Kevin Durant – Kevin Durant is the best point guard in the league, and he can also score.
He is one of the best passers in the world, and his ability to score is one the NBA has not seen since Larry Bird.
The best offensive player in basketball, Durant also leads the league in rebounds, steals, and blocks.
Durant is currently averaging 28.2 points, 10.2 assists, and 2.3 steals per game.
Durant led the league with 8.8 rebounds per game last season.
Lonzo Ball – Lonzo is a point guard that can shoot, defend, and pass.
He has been a player in this league for over 10 years and he is still one of our best point guards.
He scored a career high 33 points against the Chicago Bulls in the playoffs last season, and is averaging 27.4 points, 12.7 assists, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.8 steals per contest this season.
Ball leads the NBA in assists with 14.3 per game, and steals with 1.9 per game per game this season, making him one of, if not the most, effective rim protectors in the modern era.
Draymond Green – Drayton is an elite point guard who can shoot from deep, but he has also shown flashes of his offensive potential.
He had career highs of 27 points, nine rebounds, four assists, four steals, three blocks, and two steals in the playoff win over the New Orleans Pelicans.
Damian Lillard – Dr. Lillard is a player that is almost impossible to stop and has made an incredible leap this season from being a low-level prospect to being one of just two players in NBA history to average at least 20 points, five assists, seven rebounds, two steals, one block, and one steal per game in a single season.
Lilliputian and the Blazers are going all-in on Dray, and the team has made it official that they are going with him in the lottery.
has averaged 23.6 points, 11.5 rebounds, five rebounds, three assists, two blocks, one steal, and three assists per game for Portland this season; Lillard will likely be one of three players selected in the first round, along with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
Klay Thompson – Klay is a big man that can also play the two, and in a crowded NBA, Thompson can fit in well as the two bigs that are needed on both ends of the court.
Kley is averaging 18.4 ppg and 10.8 rpg on a career-high 28.5% from the field this season for Golden State, which has not had a player with at least 24 ppg per game since Russell Westbrook in 2009.
