With the playoffs officially ending in a dominant fashion, and as a change of pace from the draft and free agency talk that surrounds our waking moments, I'd like our forum to give their own perspective on the top players in the league. We're going to skip #1 and #2, because those are a consensus. With that let's start with the 3rd best player in the league.
