I'm OK with this.

I might personally slip Melo in to 10th after he's shown what he's still capable of the last part of this season.. but that 10th spot could be a few players.

My list is similar, all those players you have are on my list too but changed around in a few spots. I don't think CP3 deserves to be called a top 3 player in the league in my opinion. Kobe is having a great season despite his age and injury. Overall, solid list though. Oh I don't think Wade can be a top 4 player considering he has missed 1/5 of his games.

I assume this list is for who the top 10 players are at this point and not the top 10 players of this season...that's a lot harder. Nowitzki and Nash would still be on my top 10.

I don't see how Deron is top 10....or Rose for that matter.

I don't see how averaging 22/8/3 and shooting 43.5% from the field while missing 26 games is good enough to make the top 10.

Bynum has been better than Rose this year in my opinion. Dirk as well.

This list definitely is more of a representation of who had the better season imo.

Dwight Howard is top 3. With him, his team was a top defensive one, without him, is one of the worsts (with the sacramento queens)

That means some of these picks are crazy.



1. Lebron James
2. Kevin Durant
3. Tony Parker
4. Chris Paul
5-9, in no order:


Kevin Love
Kobe Bryant
Dwight Howard
Russell Westbrook
Josh Smith


10...Between Nash, Griffin...Rondo and Wade (especially Wade) missed too many games. Gasol and Bynum are not quite top 10. LMA missed games and his team fell hard. Paul Pierce is arguable. Those are the guys competing for that 10th spot. I find it hard to make an argument for any other player. In fact, there really is no argument for anyone else...unless I'm just forgetting somebody.

There is no way on God's green earth that Kevin Love is a top 10 player.

LeBron
Durant
Paul
Howard
Wade
Melo
Kobe
Westbrook
Rose
DWill
