Are Yao and Tmac along with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce Top 10 in the NBA as individual players?

as duos? or as individuals?

b/c as duos they are both probably close to top 10...but as individuals only KG probably is...but Pierce is close...

i voted just KG and PIerce because there was no option for Just KG lol. KG i think is the only one out of them thats top 10. Pierce is close...id rank him anywhere from 10-14.

I'd say KG is for sure in top 10. Pierce is borderline. Same with Yao, actually I think Yao might be in the lower top 10. McGrady definitely not in top 10.

Are Houston fans going to make a poll or thread everyday asking how great their players are? Only top ten on that list is KG.

KOBE, LEBRON, WADE, PAUL, NASH, DUNCAN, IVERSON (NOT IN ANY ORDER BUT THESE ARE THE 7 OTHERS FOR ME.

GARNETT(HIM AND DUNCAN THE TOP PF's IN THE GAME)
YAO(POSSIBLY THE BEST CENTER IN THE GAME WITH HOWARD)
PIERCE(THIS YEARS PLAYOFF PERFORMANCE PUT HIM IN THE TOP 10)-MCGRADY TOP 10-15 RANGE FOR ME.

take out iverson and i think thats pretty accurate... however im one of those who believe mcgrady when healthy and wade when healthy are at the same level... i give edge to mcgrady... but thats just me

I don't get it...for some reason whenever I come to the NBA forum I see a thread that has to do with Yao and McGrady...these guys are all right but neither one is a proven winner. Why do people care so much?

Before this year people were saying the same thing about Pierce and KG. Winning is a matter of perspective, you can still be the best player in the league and miss the playoffs. The only guy I never expect that to happen to in his prime is Shaq. Yao and Mac are great talents who will make believers out of everyone now that they have a team good enough where they dont have to do everything for them.

If you want to complain then you make up some topics to talk about.

I'm not trying to offend you and I'm not saying it's bad you make topics to talk about... but if you make a topic about a team or about certain players it's nearly 90% of the time about the rockets... and that gets quite annoying.

I do appreciate the effort you put into these forums... might've overreacted a bit.

Unquestionable top 10 players IMO:

Lebron
Kobe
KG
Duncan
Nash
Paul
Wade

Thats 7 players

people contending for the last 3 spots IMO

Pierce
Yao
Iverson
T-mac
Melo
Dwight
D-Will
Amare
Dirk

Pierce over Tmac? Are you kidding me? Pierce all of a sudden becomes a top 10 player because he got Garnett and Allen on his team? I call shenanigans on that one. Give Tmac a healthy Yao and Ray Allen and Houston would of done the same thing Boston did. Tmac > Pierce any day.

Before KG and Allen went to Boston, no one would have put Pierce over Tmac, so I don't see why he would be above him now. Sure he's got a ring, but as individual players, Tmac is better. He's a better scorer, passer, and can be just as good, if not better defensively. I've never seen Pierce really make his teammates better like Tmac does, and don't say Tmac doesn't, because even in his Orlando days he's been passing the ball around getting guys easy shots. Only problem is, his teammates just never make the shots for him.

u ppl cant be serious in saying yao is better than Pierce.

wat the hell has yao done? besides lose in the 1st rd every yr with t-mac. and besides by really tall.

Pierce put the Celtics on his back and thats why they won the title. obv everyone helped, but Pierce was the main engine of the Celtics.

Pierce is a better all around player than t-mac as well. Pierce plays A LOT better defense and is a LEADER.

Pierce is no where near the top 10 so it would have to be Yao and Tracy. There should be a choice of just Yao, Tracy, and KG among other variations to make the voting easier.

As duos- sure since there aren't that many

as individual players, KG is with Yao as a close second.. the rest are top 20

Kobe, James, Howard, Garnett, Pierce, , Iverson, , Paul, Stoudemire, Duncan, McGrady, in that order.

are you crazy, pierce and AI over CP3 Amare and Duncan...those r the worst rankings ive eveer since

now to the topic...KG is 100% top 10...yao i say is just on the outside followed closely by Pierce (im not gonna let 1 good season put him higher) and then finally Tmac who squeaks in the top 20 (look at his numbers, ud be surprised.) i thought thered be a consensus on this topic but i guess no1 ever agrees on anything on this site

Just to posed a question to the person who made the thread. Why are we evaluating players individually but voting for them as pairs? Makes it very confusing.

Doesn't appear that he indicated that his list was in some sort of order.

As far as the choices, people may need to explain how they are rating these players. Is it by wins, indiviual stats, all-around play? Personally based on all-around play, I don't think McGrady or Pierce are in the top 10. Yao and KG could both be.
