Default NBA player rankings by position

To help me get started, post who you say the top 5-7 players are at each position in the NBA, for the 2009-10 season.

Again, make it for next season. So, if a guy showed his age slightly this season, assume he'll be slightly worse next year.

And, think offense and defense. And remember, defense isn't just shot-blocks or steals, it's a lot more than that.

And, consider whether a guy helps make others better, or is really just a scorer who isn't too good at anything else. Etc.

Aim for at least 5 at each position, and if you feel like going as high as 10, or even higher, go for it.

And, if you feel like it, add an insightful comment about some or all of the players next to their name.

Just to get started, not official:

POINT GUARDS
Chris Paul
Deron Williams
Tony Parker
Chauncey Billups
Devin Harris
Steve Nash
Jason Kidd

SHOOTING GUARDS
Kobe Bryant
Dwyane Wade
Brandon Roy

SMALL FORWARDS
LeBron James
Carmelo Anthony

POWER FORWARDS
Kevin Garnett
Tim Duncan

CENTERS
Dwight Howard
Yao Ming
