How about a top 5? Ugh.
J-MAC is right there with Tyler though.
I love most of our players.
1. Hibbert (Leadership)
2. Tyler (Hustle)
3. Collison (Speedy young Point Guard ... I like his potential)
Hibbert, George, Stephenson.

Narrowing it to 3 is hard, which is a far cry from not too many years ago when FINDING 3 would have been hard.
Going with the guys I like how they APPROACH the game (rather than just the talent), I end up with a pool of Hibbert, Dunleavy, Foster, Hansbrough, McRoberts, and George.
Picking 3 from that pool, gotta go with Roy, Jeff, and Tyler. Dun is squeaked out because of recent injury, but only just...
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
Or throw in a first-round pick and flip it for a max-level point guard...

In no particular order:
Just missed the cut:
"Freedom is nothing else but a chance to be better." - Albert Camus
"Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well." - Voltaire
"Everyone's values are defined by what they will tolerate when it is done to others." - William Greider
I think these guys get the most out of their athletic abilities. Though all flawed, I don't ever wonder if they care.
I don't feel too strongly about any of them at the moment, to be perfectly honest. I've gotten behind various players over the past several years, only to be more or less underwhelmed.
So while I'll list three, I can't say it's a strong, passionate favorite in any instance:
Jeff - Not just for his history here, but his general veteran reliability in defense, toughness, rebounding, and knowing what to do within the team's offense/defense.
Josh - This one goes back and forth. His quieter games don't cut it for me, no matter how many picks he may or may not set. But the more he touches the ball, the more I tend to appreciate and like him. Love his court awareness and passing, his ability to finish, and his general ability go provide a little of this, a little of that.
Tyler when he doesn't look pathetically out-matched.
