    Ranking your teams players

    By one of the following:

    Past their primes- A player who is not as good as it once was.

    In their primes- Still in, or close to, their prime.

    Upside- Still young and likely growing.

    Eternal bench-warmer- A player who has never really been any good.

    You can do all 12-15 players on the team or just a few. Judge each player as an individual.

    I added another, "Most Consistent"


    In their primes - I'm going to put one name here, David Lee. You could argue his last season with the Knicks was his "peak" but I feel he's just as good on offense and in comparison is slightly better defensively (I'm not saying he's a good defender, not by any stretch, just slightly better than he was in previous years). In terms of overall/being well rounded, he's definitely in his prime.

    Upside - 1. Stephen Curry, 2. It's a tie, Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes, 3. Draymond Green, 4. Festus Ezeli, 5. Marshon Brooks, 6. Jordan Crawford, 7. Kent Bazemore, 8. Nemanja Nedovic, Ognjen Kuzmic.

    Eternal bench-warmer - 1. Ognjen Kuzmic 2. Kent Bazemore

    Most Consistent - 1. David Lee, you know what you're getting from him every single night, 2. Stephen Curry, 3. Andrew Bogut, 4. Andre Iguodala.

    Past their prime - JRich

    In their prime - Thad, Hawes (although both are young and should still develop some)

    Upside - MCW, ET, Moultrie, Wroten

    Eternal Benchwarmer - Allen, Anderson, Brown, Dedmon, Thompson, Williams (all are young and should grow somewhat, but probably not into much. Moultrie and Wroten could end up here too).

    Past Prime - Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Andrei Kirilenko, Alan Anderson, Reggie Evans, Jason Terry.

    In Prime - Deron Williams, Shaun Livingston, Andray Blatche, Mirza Telectovic

    Upside - Brook Lopez (still think he has room to grow before he hits his prime), Mason Plumlee, Marquis Teague (he's only 20 and his brother was a late bloomer...).

    Past their primes: Francisco Garcia, Ronnie Brewer, Aaron Brooks

    In their primes: Dwight Howard, James Harden, Chandler Parsons, Patrick Beverley, Omri Casspi, Omer Asik

    Upside: Terrence Jones, Jeremy Lin, Greg Smith, Donatas Motiejunas, Isaiah Canaan

    Dwight was the hardest decision of this group. I definitely think he's past his peak, but I still think he's in his prime. Brooks was tough, but he's not the player he was before he went to China. Beverley and Lin could have gone either way, but I think this is probably about as good as Beverley's going to get, while Lin has shown glimpses of brilliance that he may not have yet reached.

    Past their primes: David West, Luis Scola, Rasual Butler, Danny Granger (due to injury)
    In their prime: Roy Hibbert, George Hill, Ian Mahinmi, CJ Watson
    Upside: Paul George, Lance Stephenson

    Not sure how much better Lance and Paul can get, but they're both only 23.

    I totally agree. Although I think Greg Smith is just flat out mediocre.

    He didn't want to say it but I'll say it.

    Wade is past his prime with the ability to turn back the clock on some nights.

    Wade is just so beat up. I'm interested to see what happens with the Heat the next few years. I think Lebron stays, but no way they can keep playing the guessing game with Wade.
