The Most Valuable Players in the NBA Right Now

Salary: $13,604,188

With a team consisting of offensive weapons like Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith, it could be difficult to see the value of Tyson Chandler. But the 7'1'' center does the type of things that don't show up in the box score. On the offensive end, Tyson shoots 67% from the field, the highest in the league, while on defensive, he's a force in the paint that steers many smaller players away from the basket, and he constantly taps offensive rebounds to his guards for extra possessions. In addition to all that, when Tyson is on the court and out of his trademark jorts, there are few players as intense as him.
