Now/All-Time

speed: (Now)Aaron Brooks/(All-Time)Allen Iverson
3pt: Kyle Korver (As a specialist)/Ray Allen (As a consistent shooter)/Steve Kerr (Best of All-Time)
mid-range: Paul Pierce/Larry Bird
dunking: Top 5, no order: Vince Carter, Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Dominique Wilkins, Kobe Bryant (for their ability to do filthy dunks and dunk in games)
ball handling: Chris Paul/Isiah Thomas
passing: Steve Nash/LeBron James All-Time: John Sotckton, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird
rebounding: Dwight Howard/Dennis Rodman
steals: Rajon Rondo/Alvin Robertson
shot blocking: Dwight Howard/Greg Oden (if he stays healthy, he will be)/Manute Bol (as a specialist)/Dikembe Mutombo (as someone who was given consistent playing time)
toughness: Kobe Bryant/Charles Oakley
athleticism: LeBron James/Michael Jordan
defense on the ball: Ron Artest/Sidney Moncrief/Gary Payton
