With just four NBA teams remaining with a chance at winning an NBA title. I decided to take a look at the top 10 players in these conference finals between the 1-seed Denver Nuggets and 7-seed Los Angeles Lakers out West and the 2-seed Boston Celtics and 8-seed Miami Heat in the East.
Some up-and-coming players are looking to capture their first rings to help kickstart their careers. Some stars are looking to finally get over the hump.

Honorable Mentions: Aaron Gordon, Austin Reaves, Marcus Smart
