3) Lebron James

There is nothing to be said about Lebron that has not already been said. Love him or hate him, there is no denying that he is without a doubt on the short list of the greatest players to ever play the game, and may very well be the best of them all. Lebron represents everything a franchise hopes to land in their number 1 overall pick.

From the moment he entered the league as an 18-year-old, he has done nothing but represent the league in a positive manner. He has delivered a championship to all three franchises he played for, and even returned to Cleveland for a second stint to fulfill his promise to the franchise that drafted him.

While Lebron is not quite the dominant force he was throughout his prime, he is still one of the best players in the game at 39 years old. Even in year twenty-one, Lebron is good for just under 25 points a night, and his usual 7+ rebounds and assists. Not to mention he is shooting 39.7% from three, his best total since 2013. Not bad for the oldest player in the league.
