    Good for Hibbert.

    If we feed him the ball in the post more and play him 32 mpg or so he could edge into the top 20 next year. I expect big things from Hibbert, and I think he'll justify his big contract. He's our most important player, and he's shown flashes of being one of the best bigs in the league, he did well in avoiding much of a huge slump like he had previously had once a year last season, now to eliminate it and raise his game 1 notch, and he'll be in the ASG year in year out.

    Generally Hibbert, George and Hill should rise next year, while Granger and West stay the same, or West may rise due to being healthy all season.

    I expected Hibbert to be a little higher then Granger. For all those saying Granger isn't in the same league as Joe Johnson, here's another list showing them very close.
    I really think Granger deserves to be above Gordon, Deng, and Iggy. He's simply a better player then Iggy or Deng and Gordon has been injuryed too much to be ranked this high. I know everyone loves Iggy and it seems like everyone takes note of how much Danny's game has dropped but Iggy's game has dropped off at a much faster rate. In 07/08 Danny averaged 19.59 ppg while Iggy was at 19.88. It seems that everyone takes note when Danny's scoring dropped to 18.69 last season yet Iggy's scoring has dropped every year since to the point where he averaged 12.44 but he made the all star team with that, if his scoring drops a little more he may be an MVP candidate. I don't think Iggy's ranked yet so I gues he'll be top 30 on this list. He's a good defender but I don't see an all star level defender in Iggy like I did in Artest in the past. He's a good player and I know there's more to the game then scoring but I think Iggy kind of gets a pass.

    I think Mahinmi will be a big help to Hibbert as well, when West is out he won't be out there all by himself, plus other teams bigs won't get as much of a break when he is out.

    Good rank for Pierce.
    Iggy at 28 is a joke. I could see 48.

    I like Tyson Chandler,like, alot, probably more than the rest of the Knicks combined, but he's not a top 25 NBA player, he never has been.

    I don't think Ryan Anderson is even a top 100 player. We will see him drop like a rock in water after this year.
    Ryan has Anthony Davis to cover for him, much like Howard always did, and Gordon/Rivers to attract defenses. Compare that with the Orlando playoffs team and there isn't even a comparison possible. The talent on the Hornets blows the talent on the Magic out of the water. Not that I like players like him, but he will be allright statistically spoken.

    15 Pau Gasol
    14 Blake Griffin
    13 Bynum ( I think that's a little high)
    12 Rondo
    11 Dirk
    10 Deron
    9 Westbrook
    8 Wade
    7 Kevin Love ( I think this is also a little high)
    6 Kobe

    That leaves in no particular order: Lebron, Durant, Howard, Chris Paul, and Rose.

    And I think that will be the order 1 through 5. Maybe Paul ahead of Howard.

    agreed about bynum and love. both overrated.

    top 5 should be:

    lebron
    durant
    paul
    rose (yes i think rose is better than howard)
    howard

    Surprised that Rose is that high. Where he's at right now with injuries I'd have him around the 8-12 range.

    Well that was it.
    With 2 players in the top 5 yet to return from surgery's. Players returning 100% has became more common but I don't think you can just assume that Howard and Rose will be the same players once they return.
    I don't want the competition but I hope Rose returns to form.
    Not that I'm officially wishing him any ill will, but Howard hasn't done anything to boost his Karma.

    I wonder which one of the panelists voted LeBron a 9.
