Kobe Bryant no. 1 according to experts.
 
http://www.sportingnews.com/nba/feed...50-nba-players

1. Kobe Bryant, SG, Lakers (1)
2. LeBron James, SF, Heat (2)
3. Dwyane Wade, SG, Heat (3)
4. Kevin Durant, SF, Thunder (21)
5. Dwight Howard, C, Magic (4)


Kobe got 49 1st place votes to James' 22.

It seems that people who watch the game and live in the NBA circle still think Lebron isn't quite the clear cut best player in the league?

Of course the stat geeks, haters, and Hollinger freaks are gonna flip out.

Kobe got 49 1st place votes to James' 22.

Not surprising. Jordan, Magic and Bird have all been quoted saying that Kobe is the best in the game.

They must have voted before the season, because as I scroll down the list there, it's quite obvious this season didn't start before their voting.

Chris Bosh 15th?

Joe Johnson 18th?

D. Rose 19th?

Ginobili 23rd?

Russel Westbrook 30th?


Clearly those votes came in the offseason. It sure as hell isn't based on this year, because JJ and Bosh should both be much lower, and Manu, Russel, and Rose should all be much higher.

A thread already on this. The list is garbage. Durant above Howard, Antwan Jamison and Lamarcus Aldridge over Griffin, Billips, Tony Parker, and JASON KIDD all above Westbrook? Seriously?

At least 22 of them do. What makes those 22 wrong and the others right?

Besides...

They also said Kidd is better than Westbrook, Blake isnt top 50 but Hedo is, and would anyone right now take Joe Johnson over Rose, or Antawn Jamison and his 11ppg on 40% shooting over Gerald Wallace and John Wall? Chris Paul is the 13th best player in the league and not a top 2 point?

We gonna call all those correct because we agree with some?

"Experts" like everyone else...have opinions that are all their own.

If Oscar robertson implies that Lebron and Jordan are equals or Lebron is better(He said that Lebron is on a level all his own after scoffing at the notion that Lebron isnt as good as Jordan) does his legend status mean im wrong if I say Jordan was better?

Do legend opinions only matter when you agree with them?

People are quick to point out that "____ thinks what I think" until it turns out that "____" also thinks Bob Petitt is top 6 all time. Then hes an old idiot.

In the end people only care what they think. Other peoples opinions are only worthwhile when they share them.
