(Our sister site 'BASKETBALL 24/48/82' just counted down the 'Top 10 Players Of 2010'. Check, for the full list but look who made the cut and who came out on top.)

June 21, 2010 - Los Angeles, CALIFORNIA, United States - epa02215233 Los Angeles Lakers player Kobe Bryant gives the thumbs up, as he holds the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy, during the Lakers Victory Parade in Los Angeles, California, USA, 21 June 2010. The Lakers defeated the Boston Celtics to claim their second consecutive NBA championship title. Over 500,000 fans lined Figueroa Street as the Lakers players road in flat-bed vehicles through downtown Los Angeles.

NUMBER 1: KOBE BRYANT: Leading his Los Angeles Lakers to a second straight NBA Championship Kobe Bryant once again cemented his status as best in the NBA, furthering his legend as one of the best ever to do it. Sure Kobe had a lot more help than usual but still number 24 looked more and more like number 23 in his dominance of the game. Kobe put on his fifth championship ring (one less than Jordan) but he couldn't even fit it on his swollen finger. Kobe didn't just carry his team he carried injury after injury as he played through the pain en route to comfortable victory. Where else can you put the best but number one? Said and done!

June 17, 2010 - Los Angeles, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES - epa02208477 Los Angeles Lakers player Derek Fisher gets beer poured over his head in the locker room after their win over the Boston Celtics in game seven of the NBA Finals at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, USA, 17 June 2010. Los Angeles leads the series 4-3 for the best of seven games. The Los Angeles Lakers won 83-79.

NUMBER 10: DEREK FISHER: Shouldn't this spot be reserved for Blake Griffin? John Wall? Someone else maybe? NAH! The greatest players of the year aren't necessary the youngest, biggest scorers or Youtube guys. Basically put the greatest players are winners and just like Vin Diesel said winning is winning and even if it isn't by miles boy does our tenth best player of the year win. The new Bobby Horry, Kobe's oldest NBA friend. The Fish that saved L.A. time and time again. Today's Mr. Clutch from 0.4 to two more championships in all the time that's left before the backboard goes red. Derek Fisher should be named as one of the best in any season. Derek Fisher should have his jersey retired. The guys even got an online campaign by fans going to get him in the All-Star game this year. Before you fill out a ballot Google this guy if you don't think he's deserving of that or this. Just when your done make sure you sign his name for February. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
