How do you not love the NBA right now?
The 1980s and 1990s may often be referred to as the golden age of professional basketball, but the last decade has pumped forth one entertaining player after another. Now, the league is just overflowing with exciting standouts who can fill up highlight reels and leave us in awe. In fact, the vast majority of the dozen featured players here are still contributing to their various teams, throwing up one memorable play after another and providing plenty of entertainment.
To be clear, these are all going to be unquestioned stars of the post-Michael Jordan era. There have been plenty of entertaining players who filled lesser roles in the modern era—Gerald Green, Nate Robinson, Jamal Crawford and plenty more—but we want the ones who made both headlines and highlight reels on a regular basis.
Of course, this is purely subjective, so feel free to make cases for the players who turned you into hoop-heads.
