Here is 34-30 of our top 100 NBA players here at UTSN. 34. Chris Bosh (Miami Heat) Chris Bosh is one third of the of the Miami Heat trio. Once looked at as one of the top power forwards in the NBA, Bosh is now a two-time champion. His ability to shoot the basketball makes him a bad matchup for most 4′s and 5′s around the league. Bosh definitely isn’t the player he used to be, but he’s still a very good veteran player and finds himself 34th on our list of top 100 NBA players. 2012-2013 Stats: 33.2 MPG, 16.6 PPG, 6.8 REB, 1.1 BLK (Postseason) 32.7 MPG, 12.1 PPG, 7.3 REB, 1.4 AST   33. Josh Smith (Detroit Pistons) Josh Smith is one of the most versatile players in the league today. He can play two positions and defend three of them if asked. Josh’s offensive game has always left much to be desired and while he has improved, you still don’t want him shooting jump shots if you are his coach. Josh is looking for a new start in Detroit after spending his entire career in Atlanta as a Hawk. They’re building a good team in the motor city and Josh has a chance to be a part of the resurgence of a historic franchise. 2012-2013 Stats: 35.3 MPG, 17.5 PPG, 8.4 REB, 4.2 AST, 1.8 BLK (Postseason) 33.2 MPG, 17.0 PPG, 7.5 REB, 3.5 AST, 1.8 STL   32. Luol Deng (Chicago Bulls) Luol Deng is a _ year veteran out of Duke University. Luol is a good defender who has developed some good offensive skills over the years. He has expanded his shooting range to the three-point line which spreads out a defense and opens lane for Derrick Rose. Luol has been hindered by injuries the past few years but he looks to stay healthy and help get his team a championship. Deng is a veteran player who does not get much credit for his game and he is 32nd on our list. 2012-2013 Stats: 38.7 MPG, 16.5 PPG, 6.3 REB, 3.0 AST (Postseason) 44.8 MPG, 13.8 PPG, 7.6 REB, 3.8 AST   31. Al Horford (Atlanta Hawks) Al Horford is one of the most underrated big men in the sport in my opinion. He can shoot, he can pass, and he has a few effective post moves he can go to when he needs a bucket. I think he doesn’t get much recognition because he plays for the Atlanta Hawks. If Horford played for a franchise like the Lakers or a team of note, he’d be a top name on the league. I have always felt he played better at the power forward than center. He just seems a little undersized for the center position. Either way, the former Florida Gator is a quality big man in the NBA and should be for years to come. 2012-2013 Stats: 37.2 MPG, 17.4 PPG, 10.2 REB, 3.2 AST, 1.1 BLK (Postseason) 36.3 MPG, 16.7 PPG, 8.8 REB, 3.0 AST   30. Kevin Garnett (Brooklyn Nets) Future hall of famer Kevin Garnett is one of the most respected players in NBA history. The fire inside KG burns in very few players. Garnett plays with a passion that is contagious to his teammates. Over the years, Kevin had lost some of his freakish athletic ability but he is still a defensive anchor and can knock down mid-range jumpers. Kevin helped restore greatness in Boston and he hopes to do the same in Brooklyn. One of my favorite players of all time, KG finds himself at 30 on out top 100 NBA players list. 2012-2013 Stats: 29.7 MPG, 14.8 PPG, 7.8 REB, 2.3 AST, 0.9 BLK (Postseason) 35.3 MPG, 12.7 PPG, 13.7 REB, 3.5 AST, 1.0 BLK   If you enjoyed what you read look for more articles.
