- No. 10: Dwight Howard
Howard's presence in the paint simply turns opponents -- and shots -- away. The three-time defensive player of the year ranked top 10 in defensive real plus-minus last season.
- No. 9: James Harden
One of the most dynamic and efficient scorers in the league, Harden uses a variety of jaw-dropping moves to put the ball in the basket from anywhere on the court.
- No. 8: Kevin Durant
Durant will be sidelined with a foot injury to start the season, but used his multifaceted game to earn his first MVP award and lead the league in scoring (again) last season.
- No. 7: Kevin Love
Love's ability to clean up the glass and knock down 3s makes him a double-double machine like no other in the league ... and a perfect fit for the King in Cleveland.
- No. 6: Stephen Curry
The NBA's record holder for the most 3-pointers in a season, Curry has a shooting form that is among the most admired by basketball fans all over the world.
