Not surprisingly we can find at the top of the Top 10 LeBron James, the quadruple MVP and double champion with the Miami Heat. The franchise in Florida has two members of its Big Three in this ranking. Besides the best sportsman of the year 2012 (according to the same magazine), the Heat is represented by Dwyane Wade. The appearance of Flash in the Top 10 is not shared by Kevin Durant, Dolphin to King James. The Thunder winger believes that James Harden deserved more than D-Wade therein.
The recent Eurobasket MVP, Tony Parker, European champion with France and finalist with the NBA Spurs is also included in the podium and raises debate. The new Rockets center Dwight Howard ranks seventh and his former Los Angeles Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant appears in ninth place, ahead of Carmelo Anthony.
