- NBA: The head of LeBron James in the Cavaliers: "What we did was miserable"
- Carmelo Anthony. "Do I really have no place in 30 teams?"
Even in the month of August, when everything is calm after the movements of free agents, the most important basketball league in the world continues to generate information. This time, several analysts and experts consulted by NBA TV have chosen the three best quintets of this decade that is nearing its end. The only rule to follow was that the teams should contain two exteriors and three of a more internal profile. The main criteria to follow when making this selection in addition to the individual statistics have been the presences in the All Star Game and the appearances in the Best Quintets of the Season,
The first team is made up of Lebron James, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Kawhi Leonard and James Harden. Little to object to this selection, except for the inclusion of Harden. The escort of the Rockets is the only one of these five that has no title, but their numbers during these last ten years (24.3 points per game, 5.2 rebounds and 6.2 assists) and their election as MVP of the NBA in 2018 guarantee their choice
Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, Anthony Davis, Blake Griffin and Carmelo Anthony complete the second best team chosen by the experts. The former Thunder base is the only MVP of this team and has also averaged a triple-double in his last three seasons. Draws attention to the presence of Griffin, a player very depleted by injuries in the last five years, and Anthony, who despite his great individual performances, has not been able to take any of his teams to fight for a title throughout his career.
In this third team is the most controversial election of all. Kobe Bryant, the legendary Lakers escort has had no place in any of the first two teams, for many a decision that does not match his performance between 2010 (year in which he gets his fifth ring and his second MVP of the Finals) and his retirement in 2016. The rest of the quintet is completed by LaMarcus Aldridge, the recently named best player of the last regular season Giannis Antetokounmpo, Paul George and Dwyane Wade.
In addition to the controversial relegation of Kobe Bryant to the third team, the absence of players like Dirk Nowitzki, champion and MVP of the Finals in 2011, Klay Thompson, a key piece in both defense and attack in the three rings achieved by Golden State Warriors, or Kyrie Irving, one of the most dominant bases in the last decade
