    Okay I'll give you a list (in no particular order) and a short reason explaining why they make the cut.

    Active:

    1. Derrick Rose - Great young player with heaps of potential, fun to watch and plays for a team I like.

    2. Andrew Bogut - He's Australian, I'm Australian. Enough Said.

    3. Dirk Nowitski - Really great player and tremendously talented. I'm so happy he finally got his ring.

    4. Kevin Durant - Another good young player. Durant will be a great scorer for years to come.

    5. Kobe Bryant - When I was growing up and knew nothing about basketball, the one player I knew was Kobe. He's pretty much the reason I picked up a basketball.

    6. Chris Paul - In my opinion, Paul is the best point guard in the game. I love watching him play. Plus, he plays the same position I do and I try to play like him.

    7. Dwight Howard - The best center in the game. Has a great personality and can throw it down.

    8. Tracy McGrady - In his prime, was electrifying to watch.

    9. Vince Carter - Same with McGrady, Carter was one of the most exciting players ever.

    10. Patty Mills - Another Aussie. I'm admittedly biased in this area.

    11. Ray Allen - Watching him shoot is poetry in motion. A good, fair player who is a tough competitor and whom I have utmost respect for.

    12. Blake Griffin - In just one year, Blake has cemented his place in the NBA and has quickly become a fan favourite. I have to admit, I'm caught up in the hype.

    13. Lamarcus Aldridge - I really like the Trail Blazers and when Roy was out injured, Aldridge stepped up and I think he deserved to be an All-Star .

    14. Tim Duncan - I have a lot of respect for players who simply play the game with no nonsense. Duncan epitomizes this.

    15. Steve Nash - As a point guard, it's a lot of fun to see a guy like Nash play his game.

    16. James Harden - The man possesses the best beard in the NBA. What's not to like?

    17. Kevin Garnett - Some people call him dirty, I call him passionate. As a really competitive person myself, it's fantastic to see someone who plays the game with such ferocity.

    18. DeMar DeRozan - A phenomenal dunker and very exciting player to watch. I predict a breakout season from DeRozan imminent.

    19. Dwyane Wade - Wade has always been one of my favourite players. He attacks the rim with such energy and it's hard not to like him.

    20. Brandon Roy - As I mentioned, I like the Blazers. Roy unfortunately had his career stifled by injury but he was a solid player in his prime.

    21. Amare Stoudemire - A very exciting player who has put several people on posters.

    22. Jimmer Fredette - He hasn't played in the NBA yet, but I love his demeanour and the way he plays the game.

    23. Kyrie Irving - Irving was born in Melbourne, Australia.

    24. Grant Hill - He had so much potential and it's such a shame to see his career hindered by injury.

    25. Jason Kidd - I was really pleased that Kidd got his ring. I felt he deserved one for the fantastic seasons he had in Jersey.

    26. Eric Gordon - A good, young player with lots of promise. He's also good to watch as he can throw it down.

    27. Tyreke Evans - He hit one of the biggest shots of the year against the Grizzles. That alone gets him on this list.

    28. John Wall - Just a fun, energetic player with a bright future ahead of him.

    29. Rudy Fernandez - Friends with Patty Mills and is an exciting player when he's on.

    30. David West - I like the Hornets and West is a good, solid player.
