Welcome to Yardbarker's All-Decade team, an exercise where we take the All-NBA team concept and spread it out over the 2010s, effectively answering the question: "Who were the 15 best players this past decade in the NBA?"
Players are ordered from most deserving to least. Positions were not factored in (e.g., each team does not have to include two guards, two forwards and a center). Regular-season points, rebounds and assists per game are displayed as a quick reference point. Various accolades are also highlighted such as All-NBA Selections, awards and championships. A player's impact on winning was rewarded over individual statistics and accolades (sorry Carmelo Anthony and LaMarcus Aldridge) and sustained excellence was favored over peak performance to break ties between players (see Russell Westbrook vs. Kawhi Leonard). Hope you enjoy!
