You know that with Layer 1 you get the chicken or the egg argument and that he has no problem putting everything all on him and can steal a game or two by himself.

With Layer 2 you get guys who you know you can count on who will rise to the occasion but not lead the battle.

Layer 3 has players who will always bring the effort and energy but sometimes won't get the result as that effort and energy can sometimes do harm.

Layer 4 need not be mentioned as they are what they are and hurt more than help especially in large doses.


Layer 1 - Leader and Superstar : Kobe
Layer 2 - Reliable Support : Pau/Drew/Ron/Lamar/Fish/Luke
Layer 3 - Pendulum Players : Shannon and Sasha
Layer 4 - Lost Causes : Josh/DJ/Morrison/Farmar

How would you break your team, down using the format above?

Wade
Beasley, Haslem, JO, Qrich
Mario, Wright, Arroyo, Cook
Diawara, Quinn,

JO and Q could very easily be group 3. Arroyo could be 2 as well. Cook could be 4 as well.

I abstain from ranking Joel Anthony and Magloire as they don't fit this ranking system. Joel consistently brings shotblocking and not much else. Magloire rebounds and defends and produces, but doesn't get minutes.
