    It's the guy who scores the most in a basketball game, not necessarily a star. The best translation would be scoring leader.
    Example:
    Jason Kidd puts up 15 points, 14 rebounds, 11 assists and 3 steals. Dirk Nowitzki scores 20 points (the most among all players) and that's it. The former is the cestinha, while the first could be probably considered the best player on court.
