i went with yao since a dominant center is hard to find and he plays both ends. i didnt account for the injuries though.

I have to go with Melo. He made strides this year on the defensive end and is already considered a top 3 offensive player in the league. He was also instrumental in the success of the Nuggets this year.

No offense, I like Bosh, but he has been in the league 6 years and hasn't made it out of round 1. It's not like his stats are off the charts either. His stats are not even close to Dirk's when you compare impact and efficiency.

why would rose be on the list? he wasn't even the best player on his team last year.

To me this comes down to Garnett, Dirk, and Roy.

Garnett directs the Celtics defense like a point guard directs an offense. He's an elite post defender, a great leader, and he makes his teammates better. He doesn't know when it's time to take over the game like he's capable and as his athleticism begins to decline, he can't create his own shot as well as he used to.

Dirk is basically the complete opposite of Garnett. He can put the Mavs on his back and he has. He can score from anywhere on the floor, get his shot off on any defender, he's a solid rebounder, and he indirectly makes his teammates better simply by being on the floor. His defense is average at best.

Roy is a great leader, has great composure, is a good playmaker and makes his teammates better, and is also capable of carrying a major offensive load. His defense is also solid.

Dirk is in his prime right now and this is about the 7th best player in the NBA Today, so I'll go with Dirk.

Because fans don't know half as much as they like to pretend. :)
We don't play against any of these players, let alone all of them.
Most NBA fans don't own League Pass and those that do still don't watch every team every game.

As of right now, anyone who says they would take Garnett over Dirk is either a complete homer or a complete fool.

I have been saying that for years around here. Majority of the fans here dont see players they claim to know so much about more than a couple times a year when their team plays them, and they spout crap like they are experts on their game.

I especially agree with the bolded part. Dirk has been better than KG the last two seasons, but because everyone has this "soft" image in their head of Dirk, he always gets disrespected. After Lebron and Kobe he is the most dangerous offensive player in the league, and he has really turned into a solid defender.

I find it hard to believe that Dirk is ahead by a pretty large margin, but was voted as the 3rd best power forward about a month ago.

I feel you he's one of my favorite players, but still isn't a top 10 player in this league.

Why is Al Jefferson on this list and Kevin Durant but not Derrick Rose?

Because rose did not even finish top 5 at his position, Jefferson and Durante did. Rose was not ahead of Parker, Williams, billups and Nash, why would I include rose if some of those other pg's are getting no votes?

I swear if I hear one more Bull fan overrate Rose. OKay, we get it, he's your savior, he's your Jordan, but relax he's not even top 5 at his own position, frankly I don't even think hes top 7. He'll be good in the future, but its his
2nd year...relax.

Rose has only played ONE season. That doesnt say much about him. Rose has all the potential etc... but right now, with his game, he is no where n ear a top 20 player...which is essentially what this list is composed of.

GET IT? GOT IT? GOOD!

It's ridiculous how Dirk is easily beating out KG for this #7 over all player, yet he lost to KG for #2 over all PF? PSD is fickle.

Maybe PSD thinks Garnett is a better PF but Dirk is the better player. I realize that doesn't make much sense, but just a thought.

I also voted Dirk.

Umm agreed, except one thing, I'd take Bosh over Amare, Amare is too injury-struck and even if he recovers he is still slower than he once was, with no where near the same athletic ability. Bosh has a sweet jumper also, btw IMO Al Jefferson is still unproven, but I'd probably still take him over Bosh.

Jefferson unproven? 23 and 11..21 and 11 two years ago? Wow, that proves alot to me

AJ...More blocks and boards than Bosh..people like you are stuck on bosh because of his draft position, college hype, and media attention..which is dumb

amare had an eye problem last year, not a knee or leg problem...I dont think the eye will slow his quickness...He has only averaged 20+ points for about 6-7 years...before and after the injuries...Slowing down was good because it developed his outside jumper..Which is top 2-3 amongts bigs

amare is barley top 15 for me. He's got no defense, just dunks, Occasionally shoots an mid-range shot and can get it going once in a blue moon, but he is also injury prone. Don't really like him that much.

the people that voted bargs as a top 5 center are the real morons :laugh:

08-08-2009, 04:33 PM
I'm not sure why Dirk is winning this, Statistacally he may be a little better but KG's leadership makes his team better and therefore makes him a more important player. I think he is better. Dirk is a great shooter, but he has no post game, all he has is that fadeaway jumper. I think KG is a better player and he has the hardware to show it.
