    How are the Clippers winning this poll? If Sully is as good as he's looked in preseason, you could argue that the Celtics are better at every position.

    How is the Clippers bench even close to being as good as Boston's?

    Celtics bench is more explosive and balanced than the clippers.

    The way I see it..

    Bledsoe > Bradley
    Crawford >= Terry
    Barnes/Hill =< Green
    Odom ??? Sullinger
    Turiaf/Hollins =< Milicic

    Bradley is better than Bledsoe and Terry is better than Crawford.

    Bradley's defense alone makes him better than Bledsoe, not to mention he's completely superior to him offensively makes it over the top how much better Bradley is than Bledsoe

    And Terry is really just better than Crawford, the numbers don't lie.

    Sullys looked good in preseason, but eh, preseason. Odom was terrible last year.

    Milicic/Wilcox > Turiaf/Hollins
    The only reason Hollins was even playing last season was because Wilcox was hurt and Stiesma was hurting.

    Celtics. Green is no more of a question mark to me than Odom is really. Also I think Melo can contribute this season who isn't listed.

    First off I get a kick out of you comparing 1 freaking season as evidence a player is better than the other. LOL

    Secondly, i'm going to just go ahead and assume you have never seen Eric Bledsoe play. He was coming off surgery last year that saw him miss a huge portion of the season and had to play his way into shape. His offensive game reflects that. If you just look at his post season numbers offensively and defensively its a completely different story.

    It's also convenient that that Crawford had statistically his worse year ever last year. However, both he and Terry finished with the exact same 15.80 per. I feel an argument can be made either way for these players hence the = sign I displayed. For one to argue one is clearly better than the other is somewhat laughable considering they nearly have identical career numbers.
