The 90s belonged to Michael Jordan, but supporting cast members in the best basketball decade of all-time included Patrick Ewing, Reggie Miller, Scottie Pippen, Larry Johnson, Kevin Johnson, Shawn Kemp, Charles Barkley and many others. Now we live in an era where the next Jordan is spotted in Middle School gyms and touted on Rivals from the age of 12. This is of course, the era of King James. Lebron James and other athletic phenoms such as Kevin Durant. Yet, it is still the Michael Jordan emulated, methodical Kobe Bryant that reigns as the best players of 00s and continues to bring home championships for his Los Angeles Lakers.
