Best Answer

The most famous basketball players would definitely be Lebron James, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, and Kobe Bryant. There are many foreign popular basketball players, too, and players that are popular because they are foreign, including Yao Ming, Dirk Nowitzki, Pau Gasol, Marc Gasol, Ricky Rubio, Peja Stojakovic, and Vlade Divac.

Kobe Bryant won 10 National titles with the Lakers, won 3 dunk contests, Cinderella story basketball career: cut from high school team and went on to play only a freshman year at the Saint Mary's college, then was drafted into the NBA. Julius Erving-played for New York and then the 76ers. Incredible dunker revolutionized the game of basketball as we know it. Larry Bird-played for the Boston Celtics, The white boy could only shoot 3's, he could knock down a jumper! Erving (Magic) Johnson-played for the LA Lakers in a short career, revolutionized the game's positions, he showed that a 5'8 player could still shine in the point guard position. Tracy McGrady who I think is the Most cock-eyed player in the NBA to watch today, explosive dunker and great shooter.
