I mean are they serious? Do they have ulterior motives for doing this?

I guess the creator of this was some Ty Lawson homer.

It's probably a way for people to tell other people about and get his links some views.

Its a gimmick man, I think it would more interesting discussing his 1-30 ranking of PG's

I actually laughed when I saw all 15 or so pics had Ty in them. There must have been some kind of joke that we don't know about.

I am not even going to take that list seriously I mean Lou Williams at 18. I am a sixer fan and even I can admit how foolish that is. If Lou is there then why isn't Gilbert and Tyreke.

I noticed that too earlier. It's a blog, they do funny and odd things just for the hell of it. Not really a big deal. The bigger deal is his rankings, and Devin Harris being so high ;)

Saw this last night, I was cracking up at all the Ty sightings (I'm sure it was just a joke by the editor). The rankings and explanations aren't the best, but what can ya do.

edit: When I checked last night 1-10 wasn't out yet - seeing the 1-10, I am on board with most of the choices (they are arguable at the least).

When CP3 finally slows down and Derons physical advantages actually offset the edge in technique

Harris is right where he should be. He's top 10 easily as of right now.....

Westbrooke over Parker? Other than that the top 10 is sort of solid I guess, weird how Kidd isn't in the top 10 either. And I guess Lawsons' D is bad???

haha I guess Yahoo agrees with me that you can't rank a combo guard.

Also, Nash > Rose > Rondo

Reke's only played one season (I guess they want a second year which I don't think is a bad idea) therefore he has not solidifed himself as a true PG?

neither has Stuckey, Lou Williams and to this day also Gilbert Arenas. Tyreke is more of a PG than both Stuckey and Lou Williams.

Pretty sure dude is a portland fan. He was saying he hopes Andre Miller will make Greg Oden an all-star. Would explain all the Lawsons

It gave me a good laugh. Dude must either really like Ty Lawson or hate him. I'm going with the later for some reason. As for the list, I agree with most of it. I thought Nash had a better year than rondo and also thought Harris was a little bit too high for a guy who missed most of the season. But that is if this ranking is based on last season only.
