Where would you put Derrick Rose, Mike Beas and O.J. Mayo next to guys like Rudy Gay, Kevin Durant and Andrew Bynum?

We think they're gaining quickly on those guys, but not quite there yet.

Nobody has an opinion about Beasley vs. Durant? Or either of those guys vs. Rudy Gay? Or Rose vs. Sessions? Or Mayo vs. Iguodala?

Hard to believe.

I like Beasley of the two and I'm absolutely dumbfounded about Thaddeus Young being ahead of him. I take both Beasley and Durant over Rudy. Rose is much much better than Sessions and I like Mayo> Iggy although Iggy's D blows Mayo's out of the water. I also think Beasley should be ahead of Mayo when you factor in rebounds etc.

I don't understand why you used the word "dominate". There are three of them and none of them are in the top 15.

Good to see Spencer Hawes in there. He's so skilled for a 20 year old, especially a 20 year old Center. He has such great touch all the way out to the three point line and has some great post moves as well. He is already more talented than Brad Miller, who is also a very solid Center. If Hawes keeps improving at this rate he has the chance to be a top 5 Center in this league...yes I said top 5.

I think Thaddeus Young will be an all-star before he hits 22 years of age...

Can someone explain why Thaddeus is ahead of Beasley? His numbers are worse across the board and Beasley is younger.

Because Thaddeus is shooting roughly 10 percentage points higher than Beasley and carrying an otherwise stagnant Sixers offense. Beasley gets to play off of D-Wade, which gives him more open shots.

Also, Beasley will be the same age as Thaddeus in just two months. So really they're only about 6 months apart in age.
