At 36, LeBron James continues to be one of the best players in the NBA with the LA Lakers. He's continuing to score at will and is averaging 24.6 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 7.8 assists so far.

In his eighteenth season, he is showing no signs of slowing down and leads the Kia MVP ladder.

After the San Antonio Spurs snapped a four-game winning streak for the LA Lakers, despite a marvelous performance by the king, he led them to a win against the Bulls with 28 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists. The sixteen-time All-Star will be a must-watch in tonight's game.

Power Forward - Anthony Davis (LA Lakers)

While his status tonight is uncertain, Anthony Davis is certainly an integral piece for the LA Lakers. One of the best defensive players and big men in the league, he is averaging 22.4 points and 9.1 rebounds for the LA Lakers this season.

Something that makes Anthony Davis a deadly threat this year is his vastly improved three-point shot. He is currently shooting 40% on three-pointers, a 7% improvement from the last season.

Center - Christian Wood (Houston Rockets)

Christian Wood has been one of the biggest positives for the Houston Rockets so far, and the 25-year-old is an emerging star. Averaging a terrific 23.3 points and 10.8 rebounds, he has been an excellent replacement for Clint Capela.

After his second 15-rebound game in the blowout win against the Orlando Magic a few days ago, he continues to be the brightest prospect for the Houston Rockets this year.
