Chris Bosh is the tallest player in the Miami Heat his position is Centre and he is also a fantastic dunker.
Dwight Howard and James Harden team up to trick one of the good players on the other team. Dwight Howard is a good 3 pointer shooter but he is all right when he dunks.
Paul George is number 24 and played for Indiana Pacers, he is also a good defender.
Steven Adams is a New Zealander and he is the youngest brother of Valerie Adams. Steven Adams is a good steeler and a great blocker.
Tim Duncan is my 2nd favourite player because he has been playing Basketball for over 4 or 5 years, and he has got player of the day many times.
Miami Heat, L.A Clipper, Indiana Pacers, San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder.
