If Gerald Wallace or Capt

If Gerald Wallace or Capt Jack had the same skill level as KD, they would put up similar stats.

I would put him there, but

I would put him there, but look who's before him. Rondo deserves to be number one. Kidd deserves number 2. Maybe at number 3 it's arguable.

Where is Anderson Varejao?

Where is Anderson Varejao? lol. He would at least be on the honorable mentions. I just hate seeing him play against my favorite team. He's a pest. Like one of those bugs buzzing in your ear that when you swat at it, it goes away for a couple of seconds but comes right back. lol

Kobe should be first team

Kobe should be first team over Wade if your talking about hard worker but if your talking about guy's who have to do the most there teams in order for them to win then it's Wade over Kobe. But no love for Iggy?

Kobe no doubt

This guy is the hardest worker in the Nba I mean dude if he calls "the dream" to work on his game u know he wants to get better... If he studies videos of previous stars and try to learn a bit from each of them and add it to his game he is the hardest worker... If he plays with a broken finger the whole freakin year and still won a title he is the hardest worker

nate robinson

you can't put him on any of the 3 teams since he doesnt play enough but he has to be in honorable mention, he hustles his ass off all the time, and always gives his all on offense and defense. He is erratic at times but it can't be argued that he never gives less than 100% when he's out there

Stars

There isnt a single superstar that should be on this list. Kobe, Wade, and Kd all coast alot of the time. First halves especially, because they are all good enough shooters that they can take it slow, net a few, and see how the game flows. Not that its wrong to do that, but for a list like this I tend to think more of the guys who are specifically there to bust ass and bring energy.

Pg Kyle Lowry Nobody watches his game but that kid is balls to the wall, I really like him.
Sg Tony Allen Has some of the best feet in the league. Always active on both ends. He just cant shoot at all.
Sf Grant Hill The guy is a warrior. Has fought through injuries, is old, and has really conceded to a role even though he was one of the most talented guys in the league during his prime. Wants to guard the other teams best player
Pf Lou Amundson I give him the nod over Verejao, who i think is a little underrated as far as bieng a good player. Not that Verajao is the best, but he is 6'11 with a good motor, good passing skills, and great touch around the rim. Amundson is a total junk player that creates opportunities off the havoc his energy creates.
C Joel Anthony This guy has literally next to no NBA skills but has stuck around because he plays every night like he is fighting for his spot. Lets see if he keeps fighting now that he has his contract.

Reggie Evans? 100 % effort, and blue collar lunch pail mentality when playing.

Based on effort from what

Based on effort from what i've actually seen not just talent,
1. Rondo-(see getting owned by pump, then blocking fisher from behind)
2. Ray Allen-(shoots like 200 J's every day, takes effort)
3. Wallace-(plays D and rebounds likes his 6 inches taller)
4. Amundson-(have to have effort with no skill)
5. Nick Collison(leads league in drawn charges)

Jeff Green?

Jeff Green?

He's undersized because he plays out of position every night. Everything he does has to be all effort.
