The 9 NICEST Players In the NBA TodayMay 30, 2021
With all the fame money and worldwide exposure NBA
playersget, it's easy for some of them to forget where they came from, but that's not the case with all the
playersand these nine, especially since these nine players never they let other successes go to their heads and never let them forget that they are ordinary people and most on this list have seen the importance of giving back to children and families who are in a similar situation to what they were when they were growing up and that's something that helped them become known. Like nine of the greatest players in the NBA, now I have to say that we'll bring up how players have given away money and donated things and that obviously doesn't make someone a good guy instantly, but it does play a part, so let's see. at number one in Damian Lillard, you can tell by the way Damian Lillard carries himself that he's a good guy, he's humble, keeps to himself and has never had any questionable moments to honor off the court.
I mean he did a diss track on Marvin Bagley and waived the OKC Thunder out of existence but that was just him doing his job and the story that always comes to mind when I think of good NBA players happened a few years ago. years ago, he was talking about how Dean was shopping at the store and a fan approached him and asked for a photo. Lulu told him to wait until he finished shopping and then she went home and forgot about the fan, so Damian posted a tweet saying that he felt bad that the fan replied to him. and said he was fine, but instead of it ending there, Willard texted him so he could come back and meet the fan for a picture and not many guys in the league would think twice about doing the same thing. and it shows the kind of character he has and then there's the viral video going around recently where Lillard randomly approached two kids in an Adidas store and bought them both five pairs of shoes and these are just two small cases that were shared about On the internet, they didn't even mention that he donated an entire gym weight room and music studio to his old high school or the time he convinced the entire Blazers team to give their postseason bonus to the staff of the team.
Damian Lillard struggled as a kid so he knows what it's like and he does his best to help as many people as possible who might be struggling too and number two goes to Donovan Mitchell and along with Lillard Donovan another guy who is naturally a nice guy and there are countless real life people. instances where he showed it instances where no one was looking and where he wasn't doing nice things just to get his name out there, like when he found out his former fourth-grade teacher's daughter couldn't continue college because they were short of money, so with the help of your charity, give them a check for $25,000 or when you show up at random local events like barbecues or smaller basketball games to hang out with the fans and enjoy the community or ev in the two cases where he paid for the guys ahead of him in line when he didn't have enough money and the time he overheard someone at the Apple Store not having enough money to fix their phone, so that he stepped up and paid to get it fixed himself or even the other time Donovan saw a car wreck pulled over, called 9-1-1 and went outside and waited to make sure everyone was okay. in.
These are all everyday acts of kindness that he's done because he chose to help someone and things that you don't hear about all the time from players who have the ability to do these kinds of things, but Mitchell did them because he said he wants to impact as many lives as whatever way he can because he's in a good position to do it, so number three goes to Pau Gasol and Gasol's not as interesting as some of the other guys that will be in this video, but he still deserves a spot, It has always been one of the best. players in general in terms of how he treats fans teammates and the media a few years back, he even spoke about the fact that he might be too nice for his own good, saying: "I'm so nice that people take advantage of me. that and it's a problem, sometimes it's a tough business." but that never stopped him from continuing to be who he is in recent years.
It's become a cool thing to try to make members of the media sound silly when the time comes, but when asked why Powell was always so nice to them, he said I just tried. be helpful and help them do their job well too, even if i don't feel great or upset about a loss, it's both of our jobs so i tried to make it as easy as possible for everyone and also that the PAOK assault may be too good because earlier this year the spurs bought out his contract so they owed him $6.7 million this coming season but he paid them back $2.5 million to help them and his salary cap for the year like who does that the number 4 spot then belongs to t or Kevin Durant and Katie are not your usual nice guy because he spent the last few years being or at least trying to be the villain of the NBA because since joining the Warriors he lost respect from a lot of people and just like when LeBron joined the Heat Durant he tried to play into that villainous thing after being known as one of the
nicestand most humble guys in OKC he even said the guy you see now is the real me , the type of OK C was a faker, which led Charles Barkley to say that Kevin was actually, a really nice guy, he was just trying to be a bad guy and I agree with him on that because Katie really cares what people think of him and he does everything he can to try to get people on his side, like playing with an injured calf and you can't tell me after that MVP tearjerker speech that this guy is a bad person on top of that he also does his fair share give it back he still does charity work in oklahoma he spent ten million dollars to open an educational center in his hometown and has built over 13 basketball courts around the world for underprivileged kids and now that he's on my nets and he's officially Outside of that villainous role I think it's good for him and good that he can get back to acting like the good guy that really is number five is Mike Conley and his colleagues another guy who is very involved in his community ad and he's always been known to be a good person on and off the court, I mean, even on the court in his 788 complete games, he's never gotten a technical foul that he's tied with.
Grant Hill received the NBA Sportsmanship Award a record three times and even won Teammate of the Year Award last season, he doesn't have too many particular stories like Damian Lillard and Donovan Mitchell, but still easy to watch. the kind of guy he is and then off the court he received the NBA community outreach award last season for all he did for the city of Memphis and it's something he's done his entire career. he honestly said giving back and being rooted in my community is one of the most important things in my life i mean man with Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley your city says it's one of the happiest cities on the planet number six Dirk Nowitzki we're talking about current players and Dirk has recently retired, but I'm not ready to stop talking about his videos and show what a great person he is.
Here are some quotes from NBA people who know what a great person he is. Dirk is Charles Barkley said Dirk is the
nicestman there ever was then Steve Kerr would say there are fees just one of the guys everyone loves I don't think you can find anybody in the league who doesn't then when asked the Nuggets coach Mike Malone said he has no ego and would do anything to bring a smile to a child's face, while current Pistons coach Dwayne Casey was quoted as saying he is one of the human beings. most beautiful you can be with, very rarely do you find a Hall of Fame type player as humble as and grateful as the Turk, while finally Luca da-a-ate said that I have never heard of anyone hating him , even if you want to try to hate him you just can't and it has always included the fans who just even saw him on tv he is naturally a good guy and all this praise from his former teammates and peers backs up that guess number seven LeBron James LeBron is an easy choice for this video as he has easily done more charitable work than any player in the league and I think he has easily done more than anyone in NBA history.
I mean, through his foundation, he opened an entire school for the kids of Akron to help combat the dropout rate and get kids off the streets and keep him from converting. he took the wrong path and even got to where any kid who graduates from his school can attend the University of Akron for free and in the amount that cost him almost 42 million dollars and that's definitely the biggest but there are many more ch remarkable things he has done to even list but even away from charities through all the fame and money being arguably the most recognizable athlete in the world for years he has never had any personal issues he has been a great advocate for major issues politicians family man and supports the Suncor team in almost every game he can and one would think it's easy to give back and be a role model since James has been given his position but you can easily look at a guy like Michael Jordan. and how bad he is a guy who is considered to be off the court and hopefully makes you realize that it's just not that easy to be a good person in that position.
Another role model type player is number eight with Steph Curry. he earned his reputation and while he's strangely disliked by many fans or even NBA players, former teammate Andre Iguodala says it's because other players are jealous of what he has, he said Steph is a nice guy and a great type. to be around and I've never seen such a good person get such a backlash because of the jealousy over him that vouch for him Warriors writer Marcus Thompson a second has said that of all the NBA players he's been around he has worked for FF has certainly been nicer and was his behavior on and off the course is nothing more than a networking campaign and his annual golf tournaments to raise money for kids erudite chibs there has never been a bad thing to say about the guy as a person there's not really that many interesting stories about things and it's kindness, but when I was doing research for the video, he was easily one of the players that fans said they had to include and eventually number nine, Dwayne Wade, we had spent most of his career in Miami and helped him win three NBA championships and more. career quickly became the best overall franchise player for the heat lebron was probably the best player to play for the heat but overall as a team member dwyane wade is a guy the point is as much as d-wade did in on the court for the Miami Heat to earn respect he did off the court to earn the respect of the entire city and some of his best contributions were highlighted in this Budweiser video that came out a couple of months ago yes they have No I've seen it, I would recommend it, and it's linked in the description, but I warn you, it's a tearjerker movie.
Five people who helped him throughout his career reached out to Wade. One was the sister of a Parkland victim who was buried at Wade's. Jersey because she was her favorite player and soon after Dwyane found out, she wrote the boy's name on a shoe that night for the game and eventually got together with the family to help them out. Another was a mother whose house burned down before Christmas, so Wade flew out. he went out and took his whole family on a shopping spree, then a third was a girl who graduated college on a scholarship Dwyane Wade had given her, the fourth was the boy Dwayne talked to and really helped change his life and finally the last one was his mother, who he didn't know for much of his childhood because she had addiction problems and never really knew her until he got to the league, but he never held a grudge against her for her personal problems and never left for that to happen in the way he bought her an entire church to help her turn her life around in 2008 and it worked, she's been a new person ever since and they have a better relationship than ever to this day and these are just five little examples of guys of things that Dwyane Wade does and the man that he is and what, without a doubt, makes him one of the best players in the entire NBA, nothing on this list was an order, so based on the video commentary to then let me know who you think. he is the best player in nba dont forget to leave a like subscribe and i will see you next video
