    Yep.

    My top 10 in order:

    1. LeBron
    2. Kawhi
    3. CP3
    4. Westbrook
    5. Harden
    6. Davis
    7. Wade
    8. Melo
    9. Cousins
    10. George

    Then you got guys like Butler, Giannis, Gobert, Griffin, Irving, etc.. to fill out the rest.

    If you look at the parts of the list that have been released, their rankings are pretty laughable. Clearly it's a ploy by ESPN to get clicks and stir up controversy so they have something to talk about over there.

    Here are some that I plucked out cause they made me laugh in comparison to Melo. (Mind you, I've been critical of Melo and am very aware of this deficiencies.)


    #62 Eric Gordon -- bench player and almost always injured except for last year, on a team that's tailor made for shooters
    #60 Devin Booker -- he's a young mold of Melo who hasn't reached that level yet, same flaws to his game as well (defense)
    #58 Harrison Barnes -- no way
    #54 Gallo -- really? try staying on the court for a full season
    #53 Drummond -- jokes ... hit a free throw and then we'll talk
    #48 Ricky RUbio -- great passer, but for a facilitator who is supposed to make his teammates better, his team has always been bad
    #43 Iggy -- bench player in an ideal situation. not taking anything away from him, but could he still be a starter on another NBA team?

    If ESPN were to defend this list, it seems like they're putting more weight in potential than actual production. I'm sorry, but rookies have to prove their worth in the NBA before being listed above future HOFers. Also, is team success indicative of a player's talent? If Melo were on the W's how high would he be ranked?

    Obviously this was a cheap *** marketing trick to get these sports shows a topic to talk about. There's nothing to talk about right now because the pre-season is still weeks away. Like please #38 Jae Crowder #39 DeMar DeRozan.

    Melo is still a top 30 player.

    Crowder is finally getting the respect he's earned with his hustle plays.

    I like this list. I would probably put Wade at 1 and have everyone else move down a spot and would put Jimmy in Cousins spot, other than that great job!

    And that's nice, he's definitely a tough solid player but he's not better than Derozan.

    Is that what they say? Because that begs the question why the heck not.

    don't take the bait.

    Anyone who doesn't think it was intentional to rank those two side by side will never understand marketing
    I can buy that. Like maybe they had Melo at 61 and Ball at 66 and were like let's change them to 63/64.

    I don't believe you actually implying something larger than that

    I like Melo, and think that he's stangely overrated by the media and underrated by general fans. Although this article would show otherwise, I guess.

    Melo is not top 10. He's also not #63. Honestly, he's probably somewhere right in the middle.
