Welcome to the Baller’s Chamber—where I will be posting highlights, stats, rumors, memes and anything related to basketball. Just like any sports fanatic, you always have a favorite team or athlete. In this first post I want to share with you my top five favorite basketball players in no specific ranking but in position/role order. Because of them, I love watching and talking the game of basketball. Of course, MJ should be on everyone’s top players list but in my lifetime, I only watched him in his last years repping the Wizards so I won’t pretend like I saw him in his prime.

The Mavericks have always been one of my top teams. Steve Nash and the greatest PF of all time and 20-year veteran, Dirk Nowitzki are responsible for that. Dirk showed us that perseverance is the key to winning championships. His ability to shoot the 3 as a big man made me love the game even more. Lastly, the big man. Shaq is the most dominant big time of all time. He impacted the game with his brute strength and made a
In a matchup that featured two top-7 draft picks from 2018, the Mavericks downed the Bulls 103-98 at the United Center on Monday.
