Every summer in the NBA microcosm, the mainstream media launches into rankings to determine the best players in the league, and quite often, they are at the origin many controversies. For example, one of the most dominant players is not going to please King fans.
Every summer the major American media have fun classifying and prioritizing players. Some journalists even embark on all-time choices, this is particularly the case of Nick Wright, who created controversy by placing Michael Jordan in 3rd position of the best players all time. In this period when the news is quite rare, nothing better to engage fans in exciting debates.
On the side of Bleacher Report, one of the references across the Atlantic, we had fun establishing the ranking of the most dominant stars on each position, which gave rise to many disagreements among readers. As a symbol after the Lakers’ failed season, LeBron James falls lower and lower, while Stephen Curry remains at the top:
Rudy Gobert among the most dominant pivots in the NBA!
Bleacher Report’s most dominant players at each position:
PG| 1. Stephen | 2. Luka | 3.Trae

Tatum in front of Kawhi? You forget so easily
Although he did not receive a new title of defender of the year, Rudy Gobert is still considered one of the NBA’s most dominant players, which justifies the enormous price the Timberwolves put up to get him back.
