Breaking Down The Top Scorers In NBA
Who are the top offensive players in the association? Inside you will find a small list of the top players in the game right now.
We’ve got five stars that we will be talking about in this piece.
Firstly, we’ll start with Kobe Bryant, who currently leads the league with 27.7 points per game. He’s also chipping in with 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game, while shooting 50.2 percent overall and 42.1 percent from three. Despite getting up there in age, the Black Mamba remains one of the elite and will go down as one of the best players to have ever played the game. He can still score at will against any team.
Next on the scoring list is Kevin Durant, who’s putting up 26.6 points, 9.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists a game. He’s shooting 50.5 percent overall, 44.1 percent from three and 89.9 percent from the line. Those rebounding numbers are a career-high for Durant, and he continues to just get better and better. Durant’s only 24-years-old, so it’s scary to think how good he may become.
Third place belongs to Carmelo Anthony, who has re-invented himself as a dominant scoring power forward for the Knicks. Averaging 26.5 points and 7.1 rebounds per game, Anthony has guided New York to one of the best starts of any team so far this season.
How can you talk about great offensive players without mentioning LeBron James? LeBron is averaging 25.2 points, 8.8 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game and has been good for a PER of 28.58. Ridiculous stuff. There’s been no signs of slowing down for the superstar.
Finally, there’s a new scoring stud around town and that’s James Harden. The bearded one, who recently was traded to the Houston Rockets, has quickly emerged as one of the best players in the league. He’s averaging 24.5 points, 5.3 assists and 4.2 rebounds a contest.
