#NBArank 1: LeBron James

ESPN.com and the TrueHoop Network are ranking every NBA player -- and counting them down on Twitter (@NBAonESPN), from No. 500 to No. 1. As the rankings are announced, you can also find them here on the pages of ESPN.com.

S/O @NBAonESPN and many thanks to the journalists for that blessing! I'm very humbled and I strive and try to be the best every time I take the floor. Gotta keep working though. Nowhere near satisfied.Wed Oct 19 00:46:12 via UberSocial for BlackBerry
