    Wade at #1 is right. He's freaking amazing. His only issue is health, and that comes from just playing hard and giving it his all.

    Look at Granger, he's already admitted he doesn't play hard all the time to play longer. Not something I want or want to hear from the leader of my team.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    Kobe's athleticism has all but left him, and he's still probably the best pure perimeter scorer not named Durant right now. His use of angles, shot fakes, and pace is fundamental to a Tee.

    Wade has relied on his strength and athleticism for years, and it's finally starting to catch up to him. If he doesn't make some changes to his game, his scoring numbers will fall off as he continues to age and his athleticism erodes.

    Also: I don't think Ginobili has "it" any more. Can he get up for a playoff game or two? Sure. But during the reg season, and over the course of a series, he wears down. Maybe he was still recovering from his injuries the times I saw him last year, but he definitely didn't seem like Manu of old.
    I'd still take Manu over Harden (albiet, for now), Johnson, and Iguadala. He's as broken down as Kobe but he's similar to Kobe in that he doesn't need to be healthy to be good.

    Next year I think PG is pushing the top 5 of this list, but suprised he made it based on last year. He was solid, no doubt, but too inconsistent, I think he was just on the outside of this list looking in.

    Next year though, if he gets 15+ without suffering in efficiency and keeps up his reputation as a defensive stopper I see no reason why him vs. Iguodala, or him vs. Manu with another year of age on his back couldn't at least be entertained.

    I'll take this slot as making up for Roy being so low in their lists.

    I didn't think they would put PG above Shumpert. Not that he doesn't deserve it, but with all the hype Knicks and their players get, its a nice surprise.

    Also, good heavens SG's are awful... I thought DeRozan was pretty good?

    Shumpert was horrific offensively and Derozan was horrific period last season a "scorer" posting 16.7 ppg on .503 TS% not a good defender rebounder, passer or shooter. Just bad bad bad.

    What has EJ even done period to be top 10?
    it's not Hall of Fame, you don't have to have done anything. If Tim Duncan was ranked as a top 10 PF a month into his career, would that be wrong? He played like it.
    I don't see why Gordon wouldn't qualify, unless you think Gordon's going to miss most of the season from now on. He is a very good, near complete player.

    Yeah, Shumpert got hyped up pretty badly. Is he even better than Ronnie Brewer yet? New York has always loved their defense/energy guys. Especially ones with solid upside like Shumpert.
    Ronny Turiaf was everyone's favorite role player two years ago, last year it was Shumpert, this year I think it will be Ronnie Brewer, and I think he's actually an upgrade as an overall player right now.

    1. Kobe
    2. Wade
    3. Ginobilli
    4. Harden
    5. Iguodala
    6. J. Johnson
    7. Ellis
    8. E. Gordon
    9. P. George
    10. T. Evans

    That's my top 10. IMO, Monta Ellis and Iguodala are underrated.
