Top 3 Current 6’11” NBA Players

Here are my picks of the three best 6’11” players currently in the NBA (in no particular order):

  • Kevin Durant
  • Nikola Jokic
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo

Don’t agree? Let me know in the comments at the bottom of the post.

Kevin Durant, Phoenix Suns

Kevin Durant, a.k.a. “KD”, is one of the greatest pure scorers of all time, and one of the most unique players in NBA history.

His guard-like agility, ball-handling skills, and perimeter shooting abilitiy has never been seen before in a player that is nearly 7 feet tall. He is basically unguardable.

Durant is currently in his 16th NBA season (2007-present), and 4th NBA team (Seattle / OKC, Golden State, Brooklyn, Phoenix).

In his career, he has never averaged less than 20 points per game in a season!

Some of his NBA achievements include: 2x NBA Champ, 2x Finals MVP, Regular Season MVP (2014), 13x All-Star, 2x All-Star Game MVP, 10x All-NBA Team (6x First, 4x Second), Rookie of the Year (2008), 4x Scoring Champ, and member of the NBA 75th Anniversary Team.

KD is also a 2x member of the exclusive 50-40-90 club (i.e. 50% fg, 40% 3pt, 90% ft). Only 8 other players in NBA history can say they have achieved this type of shooting efficiency. He is the ONLY player of the club to shoot over 55% on field goals. So, KD is in a club of his very own… the 55-40-90 club.

Durant also has three Olympic gold medals with Team USA (2012 London, 2016 Rio, 2020, Tokyo).

Durant is currently 35 years old, and should be entering the tail end of his career. He is still performing at an elite level (nearly 30ppg, 6rpg, 6apg) though, so he may still have many years left in the tank.

In any case, we should enjoy watching one of the greatest players/scorers ever while we still can.

Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets

Nikola Jokic, a.k.a. “The Joker”, is arguably the best player in the NBA right now. He has won the MVP in two of the previous three seasons (2020-21, 2021-22).

Despite not possessing elite speed or jumping ability, Jokic is still able to dominate games with his incredible court vision, passing ability, rebounding, and ultra-deft “touch” around the basket.

He is regarded by some as the best passing big man, ever. He holds the records for most “triple-doubles” by a center in NBA history.

Some of Jokic’s other NBA achievements include: NBA Champ (2023), Finals MVP, 2x MVP, 5x All-Star, 5x All-NBA Team (3x First, 2x Second), All-Rookie First Team (2016).

He also won an Olympic silver medal with Serbia at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Jokic is currently 28 years old and in his 9th season (2015-present). He is in the prime of his career, and seems like he will be a perennial MVP candidate for at least the next few seasons.

👉 Jokic was drafted 41st overall (2nd round) in the 2014 NBA Draft. He is probably the best 2nd round pick of all time. GMs around the league are all kicking themselves for not drafting the Joker.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks

Giannis Antetokounmpo, a.k.a the “Greek Freak“, is one of the most dominant, physically unstoppable players in the NBA today.

His freakish athleticism, agility, and strength, combined with unmatched effort make him a nightmare for opponents.

Giannis is not really known for his elite skill level (i.e. shooting, dribbling, etc.), but has shown continuous improvement every year of his career. He is one of most versatile players ever, and can technically play all five positions on the court.

Some of his NBA achievements include: NBA Champ (2021), Finals MVP, 2x NBA MVP, 7x All-Star, All-Star Game MVP, 7x All-NBA Team (5x First, 2x Second), Defensive Player of the Year (2020), 5x All Defensive Team (4x First, 1x Second), Most Improved Player (2017), NBA 75th Anniversary Team.

Giannis is currently in his 11th NBA season (2013-present), and still just 29 years old. He is in the prime of his career, should be dominating the league for at least a few more seasons.

📊 Giannis is the only player in NBA history to finish a regular season in the top 20 of all five major statistical categories: total points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks
