Basketball gambling handicappers can have such Western weapons as Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Tim Duncan, and Steve Nash on their side with the NBA odds. Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers rivals Cleveland’s LeBron James as the top player in all of basketball gambling.
Bryant is a three-time winner of the All Star Game Most Valuable Player Award with the NBA odds including last year. Bryant will enter action this year with the All Star Game odds as the top scorer on the Lakers. Bryant was averaging 28-points per game so far this basketball gambling season along with 4.6-assists per game.
Carmelo Anthony is the main reason for the basketball gambling resurgence of the Denver Nuggets over the past two seasons. Anthony led the Nuggets to the Western Conference Finals in the 2009 basketball gambling playoffs and was averaging almost 30-points per game this season.
Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs is a basketball gambling machine that continues to crank out excellence in all aspects of the game. Duncan was averaging 19.7-points per game along with 10.8-rebounds per game to remain as one of the top big-men in all of basketball gambling.
Speaking of basketball gambling machines, how about Steve Nash of the Phoenix Suns? Nash is one of the greatest assist-men in the history of the game and is having another stellar season with 18.4-points per game along with 11.1-assists per game as Phoenix is back on track for the playoffs.
Nash’s Phoenix teammate Amare Stoudemire completes the Western Conference starting lineup. Stoudemire was averaging 21.2-points per game along with 8.6 rebounds per game.
The top reserve on the West has to be Devin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder, who are in playoff contention after a horrible 2008-09 season.
Durant has led the OKC turnaround by averaging almost 30-points per game along with 7.3-rebound per game. Durant is only in his second NBA season but should become an All Star Game regular in the years to come.
