George doesnt deserve to be in top 5.

Just because the knicks are terrible Doesn't mean that Melo isnt top 5, it's not his fault that he is playing with a bunch of scrubs, except T. Hardaway jr. of course, if anything he is having a better season than he did last year, and he finished top three in Mvp.

CP3/CURRY/Insert any

if CP3/CURRY make a WCF/FINALS push then they would be in that same tier in my book but then again I still fell those players can do more on the court on both sides but its nothing to be shamed of if i'm CP3/CURRY who can flat out ball, its just different levels to it

I agree. I think Melo any other year would be overrated but this year really showed how he has to deal with so much. The team is very bad without him. It's really not his fault but I don't think many people will see it that way. Also, him being top three in MVP last year doesn't really say much. It was pretty much evident that LeBron and KD were light-years above the 3rd-final MVP spot.

Mind explaining how George is top 5 right now, let alone "clear" top 3? I think you're outdated with that because for the last 6 weeks he's been pretty much garbage in comparison to how he was the first 6 weeks.

Anyways my top 5 are...

1. Durant
2. Lebron

3. Griffin
4. Curry
5. CP3

After that it's Love, Davis, Alridge, George in debatable order.

I'm sorry but stars on lotto teams like Davis/Love aren't going top 5. It's easier to put up monster numbers on less talented teams. Great players no doubt but until they start winning it's hard to consider them MVP guys. Blake put up 22/12/4 as a rookie and everybody was outraged ESPN ranked him the 10th best player. Now we are having no problem putting other stars from bad teams in the top 5 in an even more loaded league than 2010?

I'm a Knicks fan and Melo is NOT top 5 this season.

That said, to all of the haters out there not even putting him in the honorable mentions...c'mon.

Melo is what he's always been: Top 5 talent and a top 10 player.

According to fantasy rankings, he's #7 right now.

Durant
Anthony Davis
Chris Paul
Kevin Love
Stephen Curry
Lebron James
Carmelo Anthony
Dirk
George
Ibaka


Yet people have him ranked as a top 30 player instead.

Insane NY Fans (there's like 2 or 3) that belief Melo is top 5 are delusional.
Insane NY Haters (which there are a ton of) that believe Melo is a #15-#30 player are delusional.



You can easily make an argument for getting Davis out of the top 5...but he'd just be replaced by Lebron.



And looking at the top 10 by TOTAL (meaning that if you missed time, you'll drop some):

Durant
Curry
Love
Dirk
James
Davis
Melo
Ibaka
George
Aldridge


Fantasy rankings are not the end all or be all, but c'mon, not putting him in the top 5 (again, reasonable) and then putting 4-8 other guys on the "honorable mention" is insulting.

I love How Melo was top 8 before coming to NY and the second rumors started flying that he'd be traded (in 2010), I saw this new influx of hate towards Melo.

And on that note:

Damn, Dirk is BEASTING!

Too bad they weren't able to get another high profile player these final 3 years. They could have had a shot at the finals again with another legit player.

02-15-2014, 07:48 PM
Htown that's because 6'0 PG's are easier to shut down. When teams put players like Iggy, Pondexter, Sefalosha, Lebron etc on CP3 he struggles badly. With Blake he's become unguardable. Put a bigger, slower guy on him and he blows by them in faceup. Put a smaller guy on him and he posts up all day. Even previous arch nemesis guys like Chuck Hayes and Dwight can't consistently lock up Blake anymore.

If we win a title it will be on his shoulders, not Paul's.

Also I agree with Dubs Curry>>> George and it's pretty clear to me. Sure George is a great defender, but Curry is so much better offensively.

And where do u rank Melo? Even better question, if George was on the knicks, what do u think there record would be, and if Melo was on the pacers, what do you think there record would be?

I think knicks are worse with George, and with Melo on the pacers would be a little better

If I hadn't watched like 80% of the Rockets games this season, I'd agree with you. But Dwight is the reason they've been so good this year, and he's been killing it lately. He's averaging 22/12/2/1/1 over his last 10 and 26/13/3/2/2 in his last five. Combine with the fact that he's the only reason the Rockets' defense isn't the worst in the league, and I think he certainly deserves mentioning in the top 10.

Eh.... Aldridge over Curry or Love? He's been phenomenal this year, don't get me wrong. But he's still far too reliant on perimeter jumpers, and it's killing his scoring efficiency. I wouldn't question seeing him in the top 10, but I think top 5 is too damn high.

I agree. Even a prime Chuckwagon or Dwight would have difficulty slowing down Blake and that's not because they weren't great defenders.

It's because Blake has become great on the block. He can post up if he's bigger or face you up if you're smaller.

He's really impressed this year and for me is top 5.

Why would I? I rank players year by year from what they produce. LeBron was the best player in the game from 08-13', but Durant is outplaying him this year.

We have 28-30 games to go and playoffs. That being said, Durant is the runaway MVP this season.

Replace Harden with Melo and swap Howard and Davis and your list is good.

Melo is a better pure scorer, but Harden is far more efficient and better at running an offense and playing within that offense. It also doesn't help Melo that he's the No. 1 guy for a horrible basketball team, while Harden is arguably the No. 1 guy for the fifth best team in the league.

Melo would likely be right behind him on that list with Aldridge, Westbrook, Parker and Dirk. Behind them, I think would be guys like Lillard, Dragic, Lowry, Horford and Cousins. Off the top of my head, that's probably my top 20, without guys being in any particular order. But I'm sure I probably left a few guys out, because that was off teh top of my head.

Obviously if Kobe and/or Rose came back and proved themselves to be nearly as proficient as they were pre-injury, they would crack that list.

I don't think it's really been close, honestly. Dwight has been the better player for the Rockets this year. You can't disregard his defensive impact.



Also, I maintain that KD is having the better season but I'm not revoking LeBron's crown as the best player yet. It takes more than half a season. I do think "Top 5 NBA players" and "The 5 best NBA players so far this season" are in ways significantly different questions. Inferior players can have better seasons than superior players. It happens all the time.

People can change.

yes they can. I can't say I am interested to see if you have, but it will be a fun experiment I suppose....

Long story short, I don't believe you. We shall see

I just think Curry is overrated. Definitely top 10 this year, but definitely not top 5. Couldn't believe so many have him top 5, but that's what hype does. I figured at least one Warriors fan would have an issue with me not including him, and I was right.

Well, explain to me how your players you have above him are better. Give a case to support.

Lebron
Durant

Love
Curry

If the season ended today, Durant is MVP. Lebron is the better player, but Durant is having the greater season.

Who are your top five players in the league?

Mine are:

1. LeBron

2. Durant

3. Paul

4. George

5. Curry

Honorable Mention: Griffin, Harden, Love, Westbrook, Aldridge, Kobe (respect)

Number one and two are backwards.

My thinking was like a few others in this thread. Durant is having the better year no doubt, but I would still choose LeBron over him when starting my team.

Based on this year:

Durant
LeBron
George
Aldridge
Blake Griffin


Eh.... Aldridge over Curry or Love? He's been phenomenal this year, don't get me wrong. But he's still far too reliant on perimeter jumpers, and it's killing his scoring efficiency. I wouldn't question seeing him in the top 10, but I think top 5 is too damn high.

First, I value winning very highly... The Warriors are talented but a #8 seed and the T-Wolves are currently on the outside looking in... Aldridge's efficiency may have dipped but to me that's partially expected the first time you take on an elite usage. Plus his ability to both work the block (significantly more post-ups than any other player on the team) while also stretching the floor (mid-range game) has opened things up nicely for his teammates to flourish. Throw-in the fact that he's significantly more valuable than Curry/Love on the defensive end and to me that gives him the final edge.

George is really good, but people are overrating him so much.

Top 5 player? http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/167/571/Abandon-Thread.gif

Still funny that people think Lebron is better than Durant. In the month of January, he led the Thunder to a 15-2 record in the competitive west while averaging 35, 8, 7 on Larry Bird like efficiency. Lebron has never a a month like that in his career and even if he led the Cavs to glory in the old days, he was in the east so it doesn't really matter all that much.
