The Basketball player in the world is Lebron James of Miami Heat.
There is the best guard, forward, center, passer, rebounder, shooter, etc. So best is just an opinion. You could say who is the best overall and even then you would get at least 10 names on the list. The very best I ever say in my 64 years is Pete Maravich.
There is best forward, best center, best guard. No one player is best at every position. Which position are you asking about?
It is a toss up between Lebron James and Michael Jordan
This is a very debatable question but I'm sure most people would vote Micheal Jordan.
