Best NBA Player From Each State?

I have seen plenty of threads on the site, asking who has the most or best NBA players by state. Now I'm going to ask you who is the best NBA player per state, & can you list all 50 if there are, but I doubt it's 50?

I have to say....You either took this list off another site OR you forgot Micheal Jordan ( Who I would count for NC. He lived in NY for like 2 years) . As the Forum Villian, I'm saying you did the 1st one in which: NEGATIVES ARE IN ORDER.

Why would I get a -7 for simply listing who had the most amount of points in each state? I never said they were the best?

@cap777

My bad cap777. I have to admit that I gave you a minus because I thought you you meant best players from each state. I don't know how I missed you saying highest scorers from each state. It was right there. But don't worry, I made up for it by giving you a plus.

Danny Manning is easily the best basketball player born in the state of Kansas. No disrespect for Alvan Adams, but not even close.

@Rudeboy1000

Actually I was stuck in a boring motel in the middle of nowhere waiting to move into college. But your guess was close.
