These guys change their opinions every week. Don't take anything they say seriously. Melo's moved up alot with this playoff run, now probably in the 6-8 spot, but he's not the 3rd best player in the NBA.

He probably just said that for the attention. I doubt he even believes what he says, there's still a lost list of players better than Melo. Chris Paul, Wade, howard, healthy duncan and yao.

Yet people tend to forget that Wade LED his team to the title and brought it home.

While, Kobe, Lebron, Melo etc. have yet to do so.

So people clowning my list need to look at it again. Maybe Chris Paul was reaching at the number two spot, but tell me one person from the 2003 (Lebron, Wade, Melo, Darko, Hinrich, etc.) draft that has LED their team to a title.

Only one person has done so.

Dwyane Wade.

That gets him the number one spot in my book.

Kobe has done nothing but cry and complain and demand trades then rescind them only to make the finals and lose handily and Lebron made the finals and got swept out, I don't know which is worse.

Melo hasn't sniffed the finals.

So how they are ranked above D. Wade is beyond me.

Oh sh!t D Wade sucks yo!

Who cares who's first or second or third? I know I'd rather be in Melo's position though. It's all about your team winning.

Dwight Howard's been more impressive than Melo.

Wade is top 5. Melo is top 15 at best.

Forget about that #3 rank. During the regular season, would anyone have ranked Melo higher than, at best, #13?

So set aside how Wade may feel about Kenny Smith saying that he's lost his #3 spot. How do Chris Paul, Dwight Howard, Tim Duncan, Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Garnett, Brandon Roy, Yao Ming, Paul Pierce, Deron Williams, etc. feel about the fact that Kenny has suddenly vaulted Melo in front of all of them as well?
