Kuroko no Basket #5 by Tadatoshi FujimakiOnce upon a time, the basketball team of Teiko Middle School rose to distinction by demolishing all competition. The regulars of this team became known as the Generation of Miracles. After graduating from middle school, these five stars went to different high schools with top basketball teams. However, a fact few know is that there was another player of the Generation of Miracles, the phantom sixth player. This mysterious player is now a freshman at Seirin High, a new school with a powerful, if little-known, team. Now, Tetsuya Kuroko, the sixth member of the Generation of Miracles, and Kagami, a naturally talented player who spent most of middle school in America, are aiming to bring Seirin to the top of Japan, taking on Kurokos old teammates one by one.

What if there was a starting five players worth of talent that went up in the draft at once? Obviously there will be plenty of creative liberties taken here- ranging from the draft order of teams and where free agents end up going.
I know you've already made my top ten favorite KNB characters, but this is my opinion on who I think are the best players in the Kuroko Universe. So here you go:. As much as I dislike him, I'll admit he's an underrated player. He's easily one of the best non-GOM defenders and even shut down Kise in middle school.
