We are now a couple of months into the new NBA season and some things are becoming abundantly clear.
For example, Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets is still playing amazing basketball.
There are so many astounding players dominating the league right now that it’s hard to figure out who is the greatest.

However, that is what The Ringer tried to do as they compiled a list of the 20 best NBA players in the game right now.
The top five consists of Durant of the Brooklyn Nets, Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks, Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, Jokic of the Denver Nuggets, and finally Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks.
Overall, there aren’t too many surprises on this list although a few things do stand out.
Anthony Davis is within the top ten, which is impressive considering the last few ho-hum seasons he’s had.
Additionally, Tyrese Haliburton of the Indiana Pacers has made an appearance on the list in 20th place, powered by his incredible breakout season.
The fight for the top spot is certainly very close but few people could argue with Antetokounmpo doing so well.
All season long, people have said that he was just one of the few stars who had the best chance of being MVP.
In the next few months, you can expect to see a lot of attention being paid to Antetokounmpo Doncic, Jayson Tatum, and others.
