Have you ever had inspirational players of basketball? A player who influence your playing style, and/or a player who simply give you different perceptive of the game? Mine is Steve Nash. His assists and his cutting move is very amazing. Also his 3-pt skills are just as great as the sharpshooters. As an added info, Nash assists can only be compared to the likes of Magic Johnson. No less. In fact, Suns may be not like today, the run and gun style of Phoenix Suns is supported by Steve Nash play and now has been the trademark for Phoenix.

I liked an old teammate of Magic Johnson named James Worthy he did not seem to have A lot of inspirational style of being a verbal motivator,But he was one of those rare type of players indeed earning him the Nickname Big Game James. I believe that moniker was given to him because he usually played well during the regular season averaging about 20 to 24 points a game.He was also an excellent defensive player as well when it got to playoff time his game would get even better. It did not matter what round was being played rather it was in the first round of playoffs or championship finals. Maybe just 2 or 3 points more,one or two rebounds more,one or two more steals or asisits so that is what I thought was unique about his game and value that he brought to his team and teammates by being the best team player he could be. Yes sir his game was not just an upgraded in points or rebounds just his overall entire game he would crank up to a higher level his combined stats would increase and this was done consistently year after year. Keep in mind he is already scoring a significant amount of points going into the playoffs. Could you imagine how nice it would be to have reliable teammates like that on your favorite team and in the playoffs year after year?

The player I like was Bo Outlaw that played with the Orlando Magic and I liked him because of his great hustle and defense. He did not score a lot of points but you did not have to question how or why he made the team roster. He was a player that had a rare characteristic of a basketball player that all the fans could love for his work ethics and the blue collar worker connectivity in his style of play and hustle. Why just watching him hustling all over the place makes a blue collar fan instantly picture him as another blue collar worker that is working hard and the fan have to remind themselves that they work hard and they have came out to watch an enjoy a relaxing game of basketball. The fans could see that their is an element of work that is associated with the game of basketball.It is rare that you watch a basketball game and see it as anything more than fun and entertainment. When Bo Outlaw entered the game instantly your outlook,mindset and perception of the game transformed just from seeing all that constant hustle from one guy makes you thirsty just watching him work so hard.

My player is Manu Ginobli. He does things with his muscles that very few other players can do. Tony Parker did a lot of that kind of playing when he was younger. George Hill is an excellent player, although his techniques are different. Steve Nash is an excellent player. I think every team has at least one top player, it just depends on how the team plays how he impacts the team records.

I think Kevin Garnett is also a good choice. With the way he plays, even in the aging part of his career, he has that vigor and pride. Leadership and sacrifice is also what set Kevin Garnett from the rest.
