    I don't see why not. I wouldn't give an injured player the benefit of the doubt to such an extent that he would be in my top 5 right now. He has to prove that he's a top 5 player. If he's not there, too bad for him, I guess he's not eligible. You have to prove yourself every season. You can't coast off what you did the year before.

    this should be it.

    You gotta have Garnett on that list somewhere. He's just too good to not have him included.

    read the text under your name. maybe then you'll get a clue.


    wade > shaq and dirk right now.

    whole careers shaq and dirk > wade but he's what 4 years into the league. give players time before you start comparing them to veterans.

    I am not talking career wise...I am talking about currently.
    Well of course Dirk > Wade, right now. Wade isn't 100%.
    Kobe didn't spend last season in a wheel chair...he led a group of nobodys to the playoffs without shaq, just like lebron.
    Lol. Kobe led a group of scrubs to the playoffs? Cool. Now actually get into the second round. *Crickets* Lebron? Good for him. And you keep bringing up the wheelchair issue as if it's a crime to get injured.
    Wade was in the playoffs this year because of Shaq, and we he came back he lost.
    Not true. Wade did a lot before and after he was injured. Shaq just had a bigger role than he did the year before, because Wade was injured. What's so hard to understand?

    yes it does...being injury prone does make you less of a player....injuries have ruined many careers.
    Is Wade 35? No. You can't predict his career right now.
    Wade dislocated his shoulder and has gone through knee surgury...Dirk stays healthy....in my book that is a big PLUS for Dirk.
    Not a big enough plus for Dirk to be better than Wade.
    Wade plays with Shaq.. Wade isn't even the best player on his own team.. let alone better than Dirk..

    Huh? Shaq played damn near half the season, how is he responisble for the Heat being in the playoffs? And Wade being injured doens't make him a bad player, he suffered a freak injury, one that he will more than likely recover from. Not to mention he was averaging crazy # prior to his injury (29/8/5, 2 stl and 1.3 bl).

    Just look at the complete package. Wade--more athletic, has a ring, clutch player. Nash--also clutch, but not as clutch as Wade, team leader for Suns, great passer, better shooter. Just weight out those diff. things.

    He has to prove that he's a top 5 player.
    I hope you're not implying he hasn't proven he's top 5 worthy.
    You have to prove yourself every season. You can't coast off what you did the year before.
    Well of course right now Dirk > Wade, because Wade's injured. That's easy. But when Wade is healthy, he's the better player.

    I could be wrong but I seem to remember that the Heat had a losing record when Wade got injured....and then Shaq brought them back up.

    Because it was based on when he's healthy, of course.

    Kobe
    Duncan
    Wade
    Lebron
    Garnett
    Nash
    From here on out it gets confusing... Dirk isnt that great to me. He is nice offensive weapon thats about it. He has too many limitations to his game to consider him top 5.
