Default Top 10 Players in the League (12/13 update)

There were numerous threads about this at the beginning of the season, but they have died off.

Who are the current top 10 players in the league?

Lebron and Kobe are probably the consensus 1 & 2 (in any order), so how 'bout the other 8?

Here is my top 10, in no order.

Kobe Bryant
Lebron James
Dirk Nowitzki
Chris Paul
Dwayne Wade
Steve Nash
Deron Williams
Carmelo Anthony
Pau Gasol
Brandon Roy

Honorable Mentions:
Kevin Durant
Dwight Howard
Tim Duncan

thoughts...opinions?
what does your top 10 look like?

I'm not sure if your list is some sort of joke, but Howard should be a consensus top 5. Gasol and Anthony have no business being in the top 10 and Nash being anywhere near a top 15 is laughable. I'm not too high on Roy, either. He's a hype machine.

interesting.

Dwight is a glorified, lottery winner's Kendrick Perkins. Good defender, elite rebounder, plays with a lot of energy... but I can't help but feel he is greatly overrated. yeah, his rebound numbers are off the charts... but its not like he is fighting Vince Carter and Rashard Lewis for the boards... I'm just sayin

Gasol is the most well-rounded big man in the game, and probably the most efficient. he is a good, underrated defender, a good rebounder, an efficient scorer with a wide array of post moves, great hands, and excellent passing skills and court vision. Best big man in the game.

Brandon Roy, while struggling this year, is the type of player I'd want to build a team around. smart, good ballhandler, solid shooter, good passer, and a leader. sure, he doesnt score at the clip of potential 'top 10 replacements' like, say... Joe Johnson or Danny Granger, but it is clear to me that he brings more to the table.

I like it. I havent seen Bosh play much, but his numbers are really good. What is his game like?

Based on this year only, Nowitzki should be top 3 and Nash top 5 at least.

My top 10 would look like....

Lebron James
Dirk Nowitzki
Steve Nash
Kobe Bryant
Carmelo Anthony
Dwight Howard
Dwyane Wade
Kevin Durant
Chris Bosch
Pau Gasol(would be higher, but only 11 games played)

Offensively, like a better younger version of KG, but not as good passing. Defensively, he is horrible. He literally back pedals as players approach him and limbos out of the way of dunk and lay up attempts. It is kind of weird. I guess he's afraid of foul trouble or afraid of getting hurt or something. I'm not sure.

I like this list only thing I would switch is maybe Durant and Roy if you look at what Durant has done this season with the Thunder it's more impressive than what Roy does with Blazers right now.
