Here we go, kicking off #10. Remember, this is based on RIGHT NOW, not necessarily who was the best this past season, or who will be the best. It's a tricky debate, how much do you factor in the playoffs? Injuries? Team-fit? Etc. Here's what we have so far:

1. Lebron James
2. Stephen Curry
3. Kevin Durant
4. Russell Westbrook
5. Kawhi Leonard
6. Chris Paul
7. Anthony Davis
8. Paul George
9. James Harden
10. ????

Dwyane Wade should be added. I went with Kyrie the dude outplayed the league mvp in the finals and hit the game winner in his face.

Cousins
Lillard (he did superbly last season)

those two should be next.

Hmmm...19/4/4 isn't bad. But even Lowry was better than that...and I'd consider Lowry to be in the low end of the players on this list.

Not even the best PG left.

For me, Draymond goes here (i've been voting for him since the 7th best player thread); after him, I'd go Cousins/Butler in some order, and then there's likely gonna be huge debate after those two

Draymond
Butler
Cousins
Lillard
Griffin

I'm ok with this one, just swap Blake with Cousins and I'm fine.

Went with Cousins. Probably would pick Griffin after that.

No other PG would have outplayed Steph like Kyrie did.

I still don't understand how anybody picked Harden over Klay.


This is a hard pick. Given his season last year, it's hard to put Blake here, but he is amazing. Klay is the best scorer on the list, and is no slouch on D. Dray is the best all-around player. And DMC is likely the best rebounder on this list and has added a 3-pt shot to his game. I would argue with anybody who picked those guys here. I went with Klay because he hasn't been getting enough love.

I understand that Kyrie had a strong showing in the finals, and had a couple of great games, but I that was not a reflection of the level he plays at on a nightly basis, and that is more important to me.

Lillard for me. I think the guy breaks out even more this year.
