I must say with those two not at 100% then Kobe has to be in the top 5

Derrick Rose & Dwight Howard would usually replace the last two

Howard is also shooting .580%fg and almost 2 blks a game. Have you forgotten that most Lakers win are with Howard playing? Maybe you think he's not healthy because Kobe doesn't pass the ball.

You don't need athletic ability to rebound, look at Kevin Love/Zach Randolph. Dwight is averaging 12 rpg, when healthy he is a 14rpg player, and if you watch the Lakers on a regulr basis you would see that his back/shoulder is not right, the way he runs and his jumping ability is not the same as his Orlando days.

This is a cakewalk right here

im going to use the mediahype version to determine top 5

I don't know off top but im guessing that team with the 5 best w-l records are

MIA
SPURS
OKC
CLIPPS
GRIZZ/KNICKS

so don't they say the league MVP usually goes to the best player with best record/team right? so take the best player off each team and bingo there ya have it

MELO-BRON-ZACH-PARKER-DURANT-CP3

even players like GASOL-DUNCAN-GRIFFIN and others are helping those MVP candidates out to make it easier for'em, but based on mediahype standard that's about right

i'd throw HARDEN and a couple others in MVP race talk to spice it up,new blood

1st & 2nd picks... Lbj and KD are with out a question the two best players in the league.

3rd... What GM in the league if they had the choice to pick a starting sg to add to their team, would pick Harden or Kobe over Wade? When everyone knows that he is saving himself for the playoffs and he is letting Lbj handle the load, which he should ( Maybe the Lakers pick Kobe, but I know if they could switch players they would... their is know loyalty anywhere ).

4th... look at what this man is doing for the Clippers, if he leaves them at the end of the season, everything changes for that franchise.

5th... I know Parker is playing crazy good this year, but I can't believe, if a GM had a choice and they needed a pg and or sf, they would pick Parker over Melo.

I've been a Wade fan since he's been drafted, but him and Kobe play at basically equal strengths with Kobe being the better scorer/better passer(at times) and Wade being the better all-around player. I only added Kobe ahead of Wade because he is adds up to a much bigger impact to his team than Wade does as of currently, skill levels definitely arguable tho.

I remember when you had a Orlando avatar... How are the Laker fans treating you, do you go inside their forums and post?

Do you regret joining the Lakers ban-wagon instead of just being a D12 fan?

So... If Howard goes to another team after this season is over, are you going to be a fan of that team next? Do you favor one team over another for Dwight?

Thats b/c he has a ridiculously high IQ, and a very good handle...and he's also crafty and is very good at telegraphing his shots, whether on a floater, or a banker. Wade is not all athleticism. That's a myth.

Duncan

Harden


I just don't know why, but I think Harden will slow down. I also think Kobe/Wade would outplay Harden in a playoff series

Kobe is not top 10. Top 5 player must be good on both ends, even Lakers fans can't argue that Kobe is good on defense this season but somehow his jump shots make him a top 5 player.

LOL Howard top 5.

Duncan is 8th at worst. Why did you rank him so low?

You said top 5 players, no? Not top 5 players that have other players that actually help win games on a consistent basis.

Lebron had much less help on Cleveland and won 60 games twice and got to the NBA finals. If Kobe was top five, hed have that team in the playoffs. Lebron would have that team with the best record in the nba. Chris Paul would have them here the clippers are now. Kobe is an awesome individual talent but he makes players around him worse. And if thats what you do, then even when your as skilled as Kobe your value goes down. If your great but you somehow make everyone around you considerably worse, then your really not that good. Every player in the NBA needs to play a style that still allows teammates to thrive so that team success can be maximized. Kobe, especially at this point in his career needs to learn a whole new style of play for the sake of whatever team he is playing for.

Yeah he has only upped his scoring and efficiency lately, totally slowing down. Guys who are slowing down always lead the last month in scoring.

If I'm doing a fantasy draft at this moment for who I get to have on my team for one season starting tomorrow, I want:

1. Lebron
2. KD
3. Cp3
4. Irving (blue crazy-hair surprised dude!) <-- If I get to fantasy draft a cast around him in yr. 3, yes please.
5. Harden (close with him/Kobe/Westbrook/TP/Wade/Melo next year, but that's who my gut's going with)

Sorry Rose/Love/Howard. We need to see you back and healthy.

I feel you, but Id go

Lebron
Durant

That'd probably be my top 5 currently in the NBA, off the top of my head. Top 2 are a guraunteed lock, it's somewhat of a toss up after those 2 tho.

Confused why Parker isn't in everyone's top 5, and why Duncan isn't in people's top 10 when they expand it there.

Parker is easily a top 5 player this year, Duncan easily top 10. It's the Spurs, they never really get the recognition/love they deserve by the casual fan.

Wade is still a top 5 player, it's just hard for him to showcase his talent when he has Lebron on his team.

You are delusional if you think that Bryant is still a top 5 player in this league. His defense is close to nonexistent and he's still inefficient compared to the other guys you just listed.

Or because people are stat-junkies and Duncan leaves a lot to be desired because of his limited minutes.

I for one didn't list him because while I'm sure the top 10 talent is there, I'd like to see more production from a top 10 player.

I'm also confused why no one has listed Brook Lopez in either length of list.
