Default Is LeBron the only superstar without a current top-50 teammate?

If we go by a top-ten chart of each position, do any other Cavs UNEQUIVICALLY fall into these categories?


PG

SG

PF

C



Interesting, huh?

And if this is true, please name another superstar that plays with the same deficient situation, please.

Z averaged 12 points a game, 7 rebounds, on 46% shooting, and he's 7'3.

Not top 10 to me.

LeBron may not play with a "top fifty" player ... but the collection of the talent around him, equal a pretty good supporting cast. I mean, you got Big Z, Gooden, Vajero, Hughes ... that isn't anything to sneeze @.

Oh, and who was the dumb ass who says Dirk doesn't play w/ a top fifty player? Josh Howard ring a bell? He was in talks for being the ASG, and the only reason he didn't get in is because the West is STACKED with forwards. J. Ho is easily a top 50 player. Jason Terry? Jerry Stackhouse? Devin Harris? All great starters. And Stackhouse is a former All-star and 20 ppg+ player. Terry, he's @ an 15 ppg - 20 ppg player.

Some of you have no ****ing clue what you're talking about. I mean, really ...

How the **** is Josh Howard (allstar) not a top 10 SF? He has an argument for top 5. I'd take him over Artest right now, maybe even Odom. Dallas fans are dilusional

i dont know how people can claim that he has a good supporting cast. he doesnt. its lebron and a bunch of mediocre players. Z might be top 10 in his position (maybe), but he isnt top 50

Name 8 centers better than Z. It's not possible for him not to be top 10 unless you include PF's.

Camby
Yao
Shaq
Dwight?
Curry?

Z might be top 10 at his position but I'm not sure he's a top 50 player.

honestly, having a top 10 center these days means absolutely nothing.

Ok I'll start with the guys you listed, that's five, add JO, Pau, Duncan, Amare, and Okur. and we haven't even started with the PFs. Randolph, Boozer, Garnett, Dirk, Brand, Odom...

Plus we got Oden coming into the league.

It doesn't look good for ol' Z.

Yes it is, and even further, it's got more holes than this guy.
