Miami Heat star given another gong by team bosses in annual survey.
The annual NBA general manager survey is out again which means one of two things, controversy is set to abound and the season is days away.
fanatix will break down all of the important information from this year’s survey which includes several surprising results.
All 30 GMs responded to 56 different questions about the best teams, players, coaches, fans, and off-season moves.
General managers were not permitted to vote for their own team or personnel. Percentages are based on the pool of respondents to each question of the survey, rather than all 30 GMs.
Who is the best small forward in the NBA?
1. LeBron James, Miami — 86.7%
2. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City — 13.3%
Last year: LeBron James — 73.3%
fanatix says: Having already been voted most likely to win the MVP title for another year it should come as no surprise that Lebron James will be the best small forward in the league as well. James has proven he is the most dominant player in the world today in the past two seasons as he has propelled the Miami Heat to two titles. Kevin Durant’s came in a distant second in the poll, but his career is following a similar arc to that of James’. Supremely talented team leader and scorer who finishes close but fails to win a title early in his career with lingering questions arising about his ability to finish games off when they matter.
