When you hear the phrase ‘top ten players’ in any sport what do you think of? You usually start with the number one player, which usually isn’t very debatable, and then you can interchange the next nine however you want/feel like. Here’s my ranking of the top ten players in the NBA today.
#10 DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento Kings
DeMarcus Cousins can do it all. He can pass, he can hit mid-range jumpers, he can rebound, and he can block shots. That is everything you want from an ideal big man in the NBA, and that’s just part of the reason why Cousins is the best center, and a top ten player in the NBA. A point-center, averaging 24.1 points and 12 .7 rebounds during the season, Cousins rose some eyebrows as he was able to be more mature this season, giving the Kings one less problem to worry about while he rose to being a top ten player.
