ESPN’s Top 100 ranking of NBA players has been the hottest topic in NBA news (with the exception of the lock-out). Food for thought – one team has #1 and #3, while another has #5 with his best teammate coming in at #37. Who wins in a series? The NBA is a league of superstars, but NBA champions are determined by teams, and while LeBron James and Dwyane Wade were placed #1 and #3 overall (respectively), Dirk Nowitzki, who led the Mavericks to a championship in just six games, was ranked at #5. The controversy surrounding ESPN’s rankings should keep NBA fans busy for some time, but the players themselves have kept busy with work-outs and scrimmages (as well as making plans for the 6-game world tour); #1 (LeBron) and #6 (KD) were recently spotted in Akron shooting some hoops, with LeBron wearing the Air Max LeBron VII ‘Kentucky’ PE and KD wearing the Zoom KD IV (releasing in December). They were also spotted pool-side, with LeBron wearing a pair of low-cut, mid-foot strapped Nike Trainers.

lots of people have been saying that Lebron has got too big.. but on the second picture it looks like he's in pretty good shape right now!
The last pic is too funny. Two large brothas between a small white chick as if we haven't see that before. lol
I think Lebron has tremendous talent, but ESPN raking him number #1 really? Doesn't surprise me ESPN is the same network that had a "Heat Index" in the beginning of the regular 2010-11 season. ESPN has always favored Lebron over other deserved NBA players especially when Kobe caught that case in 2002.
Word, we only get 1 picture of them in the gym and they not even playin. Looks more like Lebron tossed the ball up in the air like a trick shot with Durant and that other cat lookin to see if it makes it in and then a random akward pool photo. Were there no more gym photos?!
I'm not sure getting big works for every player, I remember Darius Miles getting bigger and his game suffered afterwards.
um if he's big enough to avg 30 in the league at age 21, i thinks hes big enough. 2-time scoring champ and only 23yo is wild-style.
I agree, but Durant apparently hits the gym really hard. He's probably a true ectomorph, as some guys in the NBA just can't seem to gain mass, like Jermaine O'Neal.
hahahaha w/o tht girl they look MAD suspect lmao look at lebron smh his hairline is pushed back more than the nba season lmao
2 of Nowitzki's bitches. Durant cool but he keep hangin with Lebron and the bisexual from Lebron might rub off/on him.
and also you cant say that he's better because he has a ring a ring that not make a player better from another. Thinka about lebron in cleveland all those years he was a big fuckin part of the team that team is not nothing without him. He got that far with nobody on his team he had big names on his team from time to time for example shaq and jamison but there were all washed up when they came to cleveland. now lets talk about wade this dude had zo,shaq,payton,haslem,walker, posey and who every else was shittig on the tea back in 06 that seem like a good ass team to me and shaq was still productive then he averaged about 20 a game. no when wade lost all those fags he was nothing by himself they won 14 games in a damn season thats sad lebron won in the 50's with nobody on his team wade won 14 now u tell me whos better and like i said earlier wad has no fuckin left when have u ever seen he nigga finish with his left compared to lebron bagnin on ppl with his left. way better player in my opinion
