View Full Version : Skip Bayless and Rob Parker top 5 NBA Players List (At the Moment)

Skip Bayless:

1. Dwyane Wade
2. Dirk Nowitzki
3. Kobe Bryant
4. Kevin Durant
5. Carmelo Anthony

Rob Parker:

1. Dirk Nowitzki
2. Dwyane Wade
3. Derrick Rose
4. Kevin Durant
5. Zach Randolph

First off having Dirk at 1 or 2 isn't wrong. Dirk is definitely top 3.

Having LeBron out of your top 5 let alone top 3 just because he choked this season is still wrong.

Neither one of these guys had Dwight freakin Howard in their top 5...

For someone to have Zach Randolph and Carmelo Anthony in their top 5.... Parker said Z-Bo because he averaged 22 and 11 on 45% shooting. Howard averaged like 28 and 14 on like 60% shooting vs ATL even though he lost.



These guys don't know much about basketball... I'll give a pass to Skip on LeBron because we all know no matter what, he will always hate LeBron and never give him credit.

Thoughts?

Who are your top 5?

Nothing wrong with those guys being top 2 this year based on the season and playoffs. After that I disagree though.

What a difference a post season makes. 3 weeks ago, Dirk did not break the top 5 and nobody left Rose or LeBron off the top 5. Despite the playoff woes, LeBron is still a top player in the league.

My list:

1. LeBron
2. Wade
3. Rose
4. Dwight
5. Dirk

Honorable Mention: Durant, CP3, Kobe, Melo

Dirk is not number 1 overall.

He might, though, be the best closer.

sorry if no one has rose in there Top 5 as the best players in the world and Rose was MVP of 2011 so he should be in the Top 5. People should be ashamed of theirselves if they don't have him in the top 5. Rose should replace CP3 in some of your post for the Top 5 player on some of you guys list.

I agree that Kobe is still top 5 if you look at the season. He's still averaging about the same pts rebounds assists etc with less minutes. I dont think anyone realizes that haha. But Im pretty sure they were referring to the playoffs and as of right now.

I think next year kobe will drop a lil still be a beast but not as good as say durant, d-wade, and Rose, his prime is over and he is dwindling down, he is getting old, he may have one or two good seasons left at most, However unless the lakers get howard, I don't see kobe winning another title with the lakers, unless he is an older player riding the bench and like 40.

LOL @ LeBron and Dwight being out of top 5.

And lmao @ Dirk is being a top 3. He was a borderline top 10 or top 12 even before this post season. Now all of a sudden he becomes a top 3 just because he has a ring with a superior and balanced team? WOW. Stop living in the moment kids.

My top 5:

LeBron

No way cp3 is in the top 5 id say top 10 but not top 5, he did very little during the regular season and is always injured. A great player but not top 5. Dwight howard I would say is a borderline 5 or 6 spot, he played well but was a terrible leader for the magic.

1. D-Wade
2. K-Durant
3. D-Rose
4. L- James
5. K- Bryant
6. D- Nowitzki
7. D-Howard
8. A-Stoudamire
9. R-Rondo
10.M-Ginobli

Thats for last season, Sorry no melo he had some high point games, but every time he did his team lost and no cp3 because he was not very healthy this season, he played great in the playoffs though.

06-15-2011, 03:24 PM
All those putting Durant top 5 needs to stop. Until he actualy winS an playoff series against an top ten player he dosent crack the list. Last year vs Lakers star Kobe was an fail. This year beat starless Denver, and Zach played great but the star of that team is Rudy Gay(out with injury), and against Dirk flopped. Also as much as i like the kid he has to do more than just score, and get rebounds. To be an star you have to atleast have the ablity to make plays for others. For all the Kobe haters 25 5 and 4.7 is what he average after knee surgery at age 32. To put that in perspective

Wade 25 6 4 (29)
Rose 25 4 7 ( 22)
Anthony 25 7 3 (27)
Drunat 27 6 2 (22)

An tired and healing Kobe has the same averages as some of the younger stars being picked ahead of him. Difference is to some we realize he was tired this year after three straight finals appereances and to others he's old news and their using his age against him and his supposed wear and tear. Truth is he's an top five player PERIOD. Another thing is Kobe could win the championship and be the MVP, and people say he's number 2 or 3 in the league. Yet Lebron lose in the Finals and chokes for all the world to see with two franchise players on his team that outplayed him along with the opposing star outplaying him, all while having the biggest drop off in NBA history in points from regular season to finals production, AND STILL BE CONSIDERED BY MANY AS THE BEST THE WORLD HAS TO OFFER IN BASKETBALL :speechless: WHAT???!!!!!!!!!!! That dosent seem off to anyone. That being said here is my list.

Kobe
Wade
Dirk
Lebron
Rose

CP3 was on my list until Dirk did his thing.

Skip is an idiot but i will agree with Dirk , D Wade , and Kobe
Disagree with Durant and Carmelo

Mine would be
1. Dirk - Champion and no one can stop his shot only a fever can mess up his game wait not even that guy was hungry and got his ring
2 . Kobe- 5 rings probably the closest to MJ plays through injuries summer to rest and heal
3. D wade - Champion leader needs to tell lebron look you want a ring and live up to your name king james well shut up and i am going to get me another and you one .
4. Dwight Howard just needs the right pieces around him and maybe get better at free throws
5. Tie between Paul and Rose both had good seasons rose MVP

06-15-2011, 03:55 PM
People giving skip credit for "knowing" something about LBJ and acting as though the guy knows basketball is absurd. His picks were constantly off and his double standards are embarrassing.

How is Melo ahead of Lebron? He says he drops Lebron out of his top 5, yet Lebron and Durant are in it? He says Lebron isn't clutch and Melo is, lol. Melo has been out of the first round once in eight years. Lebron >>>> in terms of regular season player and has accomplished much more in the postseason in his eight years then Melo. Melo was even on better teams in Denver then James had in Cleveland.

How can you talk, debate and follow this sport day after day and be so clueless? Skip Clueless.

So many FanBoys and Not enough Basketball Fans...But ill play along heres my 5

1.Kobe: Sure he's a lil banged up, Sure he got swept out of the playoffs. But at the end of the Day he's Still this Generations Best Player. yes he's getting old and the Torch will be passed but its still his league.

2.Dwade: When its all said and Done we'll look back years from now and Will Agree that Jordan, Kobe, and Wade were the best 2guards to play the game. Lebron cant do the thing He does on court. Flash is The Truth.

3.Lebron James: I hate this dude so much, But he's a Beast on the Court. Sure his methods can be questioned. Sure his Character Sucks But With a Few Tweaks to his overall game. He very well could be that Great Player that Everyone Dick Rides him to be.

4.Kevin Durant: Enough is Enough, He's here to stay. we can stop saying he's too skinny or too Young. Its only a Matter of Time He Rules The West and Possibly the league.

5. Is a toss up. Dirk/Howard/Rose/Melo/ With CP3 as an Honorable Mention U can in insert any of these guys in the Top 5 and people (Real Fans) would Respect it....

All this other nonsense needs to stop. People Stop being FanBoys and Call it like it is.

CP3 is more efficient than Rose ..Rose is a super athletic scoring guard that's it

And CP3 is nothing more than an injury prone 1st round exit

that is a horrible list. as much as i hate Lebron, he is still easily top 3 if not the best. i will say that if Dirk can continue his great shooting, he will be a top 2 player imo. but what do you expect from Skip Bayless or anyone on ESPN First Take. anyone that ever goes on that show has no idea what they are talking about.

Lebron
Dirk
Wade
KD
Dwight

that would be my list. Kobe is getting too old at this point and its showing. hopefully he can go relatively injury free and have a great year next season.

Carmelo anthony is the most overrated player in the league ny made the most awfull trade in years. It ruined there chemistry and amare is much better, he is more of a team guy, carmelo ruins teams, look what happened to denver they played so much better once they got rid of him.

:confused::confused::confused:

they were already sitting in the 5th seed while melo was there?
and they also made a western conference final while he was there?
so can you tell me how the nuggets played SO MUCH BETTER once they got rid of him? because i'm pretty sure they lost in the first round

Rose will crack the top 5 soon, he's only 22 and barring injuries, will mature and improve on his overall game by the time he reaches his prime.

BTW, the gap between Bron and the other players just got a lot smaller with the Finals he had, you can't be the best if you continue to no-show in the biggest stage, IMO.

I want a true winner I am so tired of this 'true pg' argument Rose is better than cp3 and it isn't even close. Rose destroyed him 1on1 and Rose's team went further. STATs do not matter winning does ask lebron.

Stop it..chris paul has rose beat in every category including scoring because cp3 knows when and when not too. Chris paul makes EVERYONE better on his team. Rose does not. Notice how when boozer was in utah with a true pg like deron, he flourished, but when he teamed up with rose, he had to create for himself more since rose couldnt set him up the way williams could. Back to my argument, cp3 made d west an all star. He wont be the same w/o cp3. Rose is as dynamic as it gets but when it comes to playmaking and making others better, i'd take cp3 and williams before rose. I'd take rondo too but his lack of ability to create for himself made me change my mind.

Actually when the nuggets were in 7th or 8th when Melo was traded, they moved up to 5th when they got rid of him. he is a good player, I just think he is a stupid player, he is not smart when it comes to decisions, he takes bad shots, when he should make the extra pass, he is a little to selfish at times, I think it really hurt the knicks towards the end of the season, they could have had a higher seed if they didn't make that trade and waited the season and then signed melo as a free agent. billups was the only thing good in the trade, and he was injured so they did not get the full affect. I think denver got the better end of the deal.

But anyways, I put D wade as number 1 because of consistant play and I think he is the best player in the league at taking over games. it used to be K bryant but I think d wade is the best player in the league at turning that switch on to really take over games he has a high mental toughness, something that lebron lacks and melo. Him and Kobe and D will as well as D Rose are proabally the most mentally tough superstars in the league with Dirk up there as well, they mostly always keep their compsure and can really turn it on when they need too. they have a extremely high focus level, and mental toughness is something u can't teach u have to learn it on your own.

I was kinda agreeing with you til you added this gem:facepalm:Rondo is nowhere close to Rose, he can't hit the side of a barn and a PG needs to at least have somewhat of jumper, he can't even hit FTs.

Rose is the youngest of the 3 PGs, he is more of an offense threat than CP3 or Williams, Rose needs to work on his playmaking skills to get others involved, I agree with you on that.

I mean when he playe in Cleveland he had an excuse for not winning rings and now the 1 and 2 players on a lot of peoples list are playing together and they didn't win and last time I checked it wasn't Wade's fault that they didn't win! So shouldn't that knock him out of peoples top 5. I mean let's be honest that team as far as on paper is one of the greatest teams ever constructed and they lost to an injury bugged team in the Mavs in 6 games. I mean yes so did everyone else because Caron didn't play but coe on now Lebron, Wade and Bosh lost to a team with only one superstar on it u have to be kidding me. I'm sorry but Lebron should officially be out of everyones top 5 after that series. The man has to earn the right to be called the world's best again because now that title officially belongs to Dwight!

I dont care if Rose got the MVP, anyone who watches basket ball will know that rose is not better than kobe. People are clearly living in the moment. Dirk had an excellent playoff run, but people forget that dirk has been a one dimensional player for most of his career. Outside of Howard, Lebron and Wade there's no player in the NBA who is better than Kobe. If you know anything about Basketball you should know this.

ESPN SportsNation is holding a poll that currently has over 39,000 votes. The Question: Who is the best basketball player in the world right now?
The players to choose from are Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Dirk Nowitzki, Derrick Rose, or other.
Kobe Bryant leads the vote around the nation, and around the globe.
Here are the results as of Tuesday evening:
Kobe Bryant 32%
Dirk Nowitzki 28%
LeBron James 17%
Derrick Rose 16%
Other 7%
After Lebron James failing to play up to his capabilities in the NBA Finals its seems as NBA fans across the world believe that LeBron was “crowned” to early, staying with the 5-time champion Kobe Bryant.

If LeBron had been swept in the second round there'd be people saying he isn't top 10 in the league.. The double standards on these forums is unbelievable. I'm not sure if we'll ever see a sportsperson as hated as LeBron James. The guy's made a few mistakes, but the **** he has to put up with... WOW.

Yeah I know, it astounds me. Although it is true that LeBron does come off as arrogant at times and is not the perfect individual in front of the media, that is far from unique. People need to stop being so biased against LeBron, dislike him if you want, but at least evaluate objectively and admit that he is the greatest player in the game today and will most likely be an all time great.

3) Dirk Nowitzki (showed clutch to go with his offensive game this year)
4) Dwayne Wade (turns the ball over more than he should but still a stud at
both ends of the floor)
5) Lebron James (you can't put Randolph, Carmelo, or just anybody ahead of someone who has that well rounded of a game) Is he a closer??? Not yet but he still is easily a top 5 player.

Tell me how many gm's would take Zach Randolph over Lebron James???

1) Derrick Rose (he put the Bulls on his back and almost made the Finals)
2) Dwight Howard (the most dominant big in the league today)
3) Dirk Nowitzki (showed clutch to go with his offensive game this year)
4) Dwayne Wade (turns the ball over more than he should but still a stud at
both ends of the floor)
5) Lebron James (you can't put Randolph, Carmelo, or just anybody ahead of someone who has that well rounded of a game) Is he a closer??? Not yet but he still is easily a top 5 player.

How isn't he a closer? Two and a half weeks ago there were none Miami fans saying he has become the best closer in the game. For some reason however he was microscopic in the 4th quarters in the finals but is that enough to say that he isn't a closer after what he did to the Celts and the Bulls?

just to make you lebron fanboys happy.

Skip Bayless:
0. lebron james
1. Dwyane Wade
2. Dirk Nowitzki
3. Kobe Bryant
4. Kevin Durant
5. Carmelo Anthony

Rob Parker:
0. lebron james
1. Dirk Nowitzki
2. Dwyane Wade
3. Derrick Rose
4. Kevin Durant
5. Zach Randolph

i already put him on top but don't expect me to give him another number since he disappears, goes from hero to zero, has no ring and plays like gilbert arenas in the playoffs. lol.

Irk & Wade #1 & 2 just cause they play in the finals?

I dont care if Rose got the MVP, anyone who watches basket ball will know that rose is not better than kobe. People are clearly living in the moment. Dirk had an excellent playoff run, but people forget that dirk has been a one dimensional player for most of his career. Outside of Howard, Lebron and Wade there's no player in the NBA who is better than Kobe. If you know anything about Basketball you should know this.

I think Rose is better than Kobe :shrug:

I don't think Rose is in the top 5, but at this stage in their careers I think he's better than Kobe.

People are already dethroning LeBron after he was the consensus best player in the NBA after his series against the C's and the Bulls. He has one bad series and he's out of people's top 5's? And Kobe's back up to #1? After being swept in the second round?

If LeBron had been swept in the second round there'd be people saying he isn't top 10 in the league.. The double standards on these forums is unbelievable. I'm not sure if we'll ever see a sportsperson as hated as LeBron James. The guy's made a few mistakes, but the **** he has to put up with... WOW. I'm sure he'll be appreciated when he retires with a handful of rings and a place in the top 5 of all-time, but until then looks like he's gonna have to deal with all this hate.

I hate people like you when it comes to this subject.. Deal with the hate? Its because of you that he gets hated on. Youve already concluded that he was gonna end up with a handful of rings and a top 5 player... Why dont you let that man earn all that **** before you tell us whats going to happen. Lebron has never had to earn anything. He feels entitled. Soon as he starts winning things besides MVP's, then lets talk

Wade is better than Lebron.. The fact that Lebron just got exposed on national television for all the things ive been saying about the man should be enough.

5. Kobe/Durant/CP3
6. Kobe/Durant/CP3

Dirk is 7th and I know I'll hear it from Mavs fans, but shooting under 42% from the floor in the Finals yet closing it out in 6, that has a lot to do with your team as a whole.

Durant gets blown out by Dirk in the WCF, Dirk goes to the Finals and shoots 42% yet still scores 26 a game and Durant is still higher on your list?

And you rag on Dirk for shooting 42% in the Finals. When has Dwight Howard gone to the Finals? First round elimination?

Keep dreaming. So on your list Kobe would be around # 10. Rose isn't even the best at his position, so what exactly are you saying? Name one category that rose is better than Kobe in, besides the obvious which is passing?

Same way the FIBA team lost in 2006 or the Olympic team in 2004 despite maybe having the best 10 guys on the floor.

I genuinely believe LBJ isnt #1, never have. But he is either 2 or 3, and that isnt very debatable.

Want to know who the best player in the NBA is. Go to my blog http://therisebegins.blogspot.com/ It is a rather long post so skip to the end to see what I think. I feel like there are so many criteria to try and decide who the best 5 in the league are. Do we go by regular season, postseason, who you would want to start a team with, in the fourth quarter, or after currently seeing the 2011 playoffs. I tried to combine them all and figure out who the Top 5 in the league are. I used statistic based analysis, but as you know, everything is debatable in this argument. Comment away, I'd really like to see your opinion!

Durant is hype

I agree with them both in that LeBron doesn't belong in the top 5. Don't care about his skills or talents. Top 5 players don't perform like that in the finals. That matters more than anything, and he was worthless, when it counted.

Dirk
Wade
Rose
Durant
