Perfect Player: Help NBA TV create the ultimate NBA star

From Staff


What qualities and traits would comprise the perfect NBA player?

* * *

Kyrie Irving's handles? James Harden's offensive mind? What intangibles from NBA players would make the perfect player?

In an eight-part series airing Wednesdays on NBA GameTime Live, you can help us create the NBA's perfect player. Using skill sets and attributes from current players -- narrowed down through a survey that NBA GMs, coaches and former players took part in -- you will have the final say as you vote for your favorites.

The categories to be determined are: vision, handle, shot, athleticism, body and size, intangibles (which includes leadership, heart and being "clutch"), basketball IQ and defense. 

The players available for voting will be revealed in weekly polls on the @NBATV Twitter handle. From there, fans can vote and the results will be revealed each Friday.
