point guard: Chris Paul / Nash

Shooting guard: Kobe / Wade

Small forward: Lebron / Melo

Power Forward: Duncan / Bosh

Center: Dwight Howard / Yao Ming

Honorary mention to Dirk and KG.

I think that covers all the bases.

Edit: ^ Read the thread as "since" the playoffs, so those would change a little. That's my overall best players since '05.

LOL Bosh! Dirk & KG (let alone other PF's) have had way more success (both personal & team) than Bosh in the Playoffs.

And Tony Parker has arguably been the best PG in the Playoffs since 05.

Durant hasn't even ever played a Playoff game in the NBA! Do you idiots even read the thread question???

Totally missed the "in" the playoffs part. I read it as "since" the playoffs for some reason. I think Bosh has been the second best power forward overall over the past 5 years, obviously not in the playoffs. My bad.

Same goes for all the other players I listed above, though most of them actually work for playoff success also.

my list would be
1. Wade
2. Billups (Just Knows How To Win)
3. Tony Parker/ Tim Duncan (Both Know How To Turn It On In The Playoffs)
4. Kobe Bryant (Got Him This Low Because Until He Got Pau He Was Getting Knocked Out In The First Rounds)

^Can use the left side to tab down over the last 5 years or so. As far as pure numbers go in the realm of self production vs. opponents production in the playoffs (and reg season) then LBJ is ahead by a wide margin.

Being that James playoff numbers/clutch numbers/game winning shot numbers are consistently higher than anybody else in the NBA, along with the fact that he is arguably the best in the game period, and he has to be the #1 choice here.

Beyond that, I'll scratch Bosh and keep the rest of my list the same I suppose.

even in a losing effort averaging 37 against the great tim duncan in the WCF's deserves some recognition right?

Well done. I agree, but your evidence is much more convincing. Nice find.

Lebron James has averaged around 28 ppg I believe in the playoffs since 05, so he should be on the list.

Billups should be the number one PG imo

Paul

Anthony

Pierce



I think Kobe is the clear cut #1, with Duncan #2

Why Yao over Mcgrady?

Because Tmac has still never made it past the 1st round and the year he wasn't in, Yao took them to the 2nd round and challenged LA (while he was healthy they had a chance).

Really Melo over Dwight?

Melo got out of the 1st round for the first time last season and got eliminated in the WCFs. In comparison, Dwight got to the playoffs in his 3rd season, 2nd round two seasons ago and made the Finals last year.

And why is CP3 so high up?

4. Kobe Bryant (Got Him This Low Because Until He Got Pau He Was Getting Knocked Out In The First Rounds)

And Wade has gotten out of the first round how many times, and with who else on his roster when he did make it out? Billups knows how to win, but he hasn't since 2004?

Went to the Finals twice, won a championship once, Every other year he has made it to the conference Finals... No one else did that, & Im sure that when he says he knows how to win he means win in general and make his team a competitor no matter what team he is on...

3 times in 5 playoff trips...

both times he lost in the 1st, he was on a team that was a big time underdog...

I can agree with you on the wade not getting out of the first round but the two times wade had another big star he won the championship lost in the ecf, i say wade could do the same thing kobe did had he been on the roster kobe is on, and kobe would have lost to the hawks last year if he was on his roster

Billups got upset twice in 2006 and 2007.
