LeBron James (LAL) OVR 97

The King still has an intense desire to make it work at the Lakers, after losing a third of the 2018-19 season to injury and not making it to the Finals. Having never missed so many games in a season, LeBron James is edging to get back on the court to exert his dominance. 

To add insult to injury, the addition of San Antonio’s power forward Anthony Davis to the Lakers squad will make them one of the most dominant offenses in the western conference.

Kawhi Leonard (LAC) OVR 97

Kawhi Leonard is now officially with the LA Clippers, joined by his fellow Southern California native and six-time All-Star, Paul George. Leonard’s Game 7 buzzer-beater, sending Joel Embiid’s 76ers back to Philadelphia, was one of the most incredible moments to witness in recent years of basketball.

After achieving such success, his decision to leave the Raptors came as a shock to NBA fans around the world. That said, he should not be knocked for his desire start the next chapter of his legacy in his hometown.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (MIL) OVR 96

The Greek Freak Giannis Antetokounmpo was named MVP this season, with his emotional speech humbling the entire NBA community. Being awarded this title came as no surprise, as he had yet another dominant season with the Milwaukee Bucks. 

Antetokounmpo’s athleticism, length and aggressive style of play around the paint make him impossible to defend, and allowed him to average 12 rebounds, 6 assists and 27 points a game this season. Dominance.

Kevin Durant (BKN) OVR 96

Kevin Durant put his body and career on the line for his teammates, returning prematurely from a calf/Achilles injury in the Playoff Finals before fully rupturing his Achilles tendon in the first quarter. 

Easily one of the most criticized players in the NBA (notably for his decision to move to an already-dominant GSW team in 2016), Durant has decided on a move to Brooklyn with fellow superstar Kyrie Irving.  Expect to see the young Brooklyn Nets team flourish under their leadership.

Paul George (LAC) OVR 93

For an organization that has never really had a top 10 talent choose them over the Lakers, the LA Clippers should consider themselves spoiled this season. Paul George could not resist a move to the club he supported as a child, especially with Kawhi Leonard encouraging the idea of a superstar team. 

Having forced this trade, we expect to see the 6-time All-Star performing at his best. He is arguably the best two-way player in the league, leading the NBA for steals in the 2018-19 season and averaging a staggering 28 PPG.
