NBA players have taken up a variety of pastimes to keep themselves occupied while waiting for the season to begin. To pass the time, many gamers have resorted to the realm of gaming. Over the last two months, Call of Duty Modern Warfare has been the game of choice for many NBA players, and several of them have progressed to become excellent players in the game.
I'll go through the greatest NBA players who have competed in Call of Duty Modern Warfare since the NBA season was interrupted in this list. Some players have the potential to compete professionally in Call of Duty, and I'll break down their game.
5. Josh Hart
Since his arrival in the league a few years back, Josh Hart has been vocal about his passion for video games. He's spent time playing games like PUBG and Fortnite, and he's now moved on to Modern Warfare. Hart is one of the most dedicated basketball players in the league, for both good and negative reasons. Hart smashes his keyboard in the video below after losing a Warzone competition.
In the midst of combat, Hart is renowned for more than simply his anger and exhilaration. When it comes to video games in general, he is one of the best players in the NBA. He's one of the few NBA players that use a keyboard and mouse, and he has some of the greatest aim of any player in the league. Hart was on the losing team in the Slam event with Jackson, although he was not the deciding factor in the team's failure. Hart often broadcasts Warzone, where he consistently records games with double-digit kills. Hart has a lot of gaming expertise and will continue to dominate in the virtual world just like he does on the court.
4. Ben Simmons
Ben Simmons may struggle with his shooting on the basketball floor, but he is a military sniper. Simmons is one of the greatest snipers in Warzone, regardless of whether or not he is a Call of Duty pro. Simmons has incredible centering, which enables him to win a lot of bouts he doesn't deserve to win.
Despite losing in the Slam competition against other NBA players, Simmons was a superstar. With a KD of 1.4, he had the second-best KD in the tournament and led his side to a competitive finish. He is always playing Warzone and spends his time with NBA players such as Devin Booker and Meyers Leonard.
Simmons frequently broadcasts late at night and has a sizable Twitch following. He's played with members of the professional Call of Duty squad the Toronto Ultra, and one of them, Classic, believes Simmons has the ability to compete at a professional level in the game. Simmons has said that Warzone is his favorite video game of all time, and it is obvious that it is also the one in which he excels.
3. Devin Booker
On and off the court, Devin Booker is a superstar in everything he does. Since the season was paused, Booker has started streaming Warzone in his spare time and has shown to the world that he is a force to be reckoned with on Verdansk as well. Booker broadcasts every night and proves to the world that he is one of the most aggressive and skilled Call of Duty gamers around.
On-Call of Duty, Booker often teams up with NBA players like Ben Simmons and De'Aaron Fox to create an NBA superteam. He also collaborates with big broadcasters like Cloakzy and Tfue on a regular basis, resulting in a massive rise in his Twitch viewership.
Booker, along with Simmons and Grayson Allen, lost in the Slam competition, but he demonstrated why he is one of the greatest Call of Duty players who is also an athlete.
When you consider Booker's NBA deal, it's not surprising that he gives all of the money he earns on his Twitch broadcast. He spends so much time on stream that you can learn a lot about Booker just by watching him, and the most important thing you will discover is that he is a vicious Call of Duty player who loves the game.
2. De’Aaron Fox
De'Aaron Fox has been a Call of Duty fan since he was a child, and while the NBA season was stopped, he has shown his skill in Modern Warfare and Warzone. Fox said before the start of confinement that he had spent more than 14 days in the game since its release and that he has more than quadrupled that time since isolation started.
Fox excels at playing fast in Warzone, which is similar to his NBA style. He consistently scores 20+ kill victories on Twitter, and when he plays alongside NBA streamers like Devin Booker and Ben Simmons, he dominates on stream.
Fox, together with Meyers Leonard and Josh Hart, was a part of the winning team in the Slam event both weeks. Fox regularly produced winning plays for the club and had a positive KD of 1.1. Fox is one of the funniest streamers, which makes me unbiased towards him as a player, but his talent backs it up as well.
Fox will have to take a vacation from intensive gaming for the NBA playoffs next month, but he will be able to show off his skills to the other players in video games in Orlando.
1. Meyers Leonard
Meyers Leonard, at the top of the list, is the best Call of Duty player in the NBA. Leonard has a lengthy history with video games and devotes a significant amount of effort to improve his broadcast and gameplay. Leonard has said that he wants to make streaming a profession both while playing and when he retires from playing, which is quite possible given his incredible talent in any game he attempts.
Leonard has a professional Twitch account with over 25,000 followers, as well as a gaming setup that matches that of many other elite gamers.
Leonard took his team on his shoulders and carried them to victory in the Slam event. Leonard finished the tournament with a 2.67 KD, which was more than twice as high as the next best player. He shoots as straight as any Call of Duty expert and has a thorough understanding of the game that may propel him to the next level.
Leonard regularly hits insane snipes in Warzone and defeats opponents in tight gunfights with his secondary. Watch Leonard's broadcasts to learn how to play Warzone correctly from one of the greatest. He believes he is the greatest NBA player in Call of Duty, and his performance on his Twitch channel proves it every night.
