These are in order too
Selfish/Least Likely to Pass:
Fastest With the Ball:
Joakim Noah (looks like a prematurely hatched dinosaur)
Pau Gasol (that guy looks like ostrich)
Al-Farouq Aminu (looks like one of the hyenas off the Lion King)
Mike Dunleavy Jr.
Yao Ming (he gets dunked on alot for a 7'5 man lol)
couldnt have made the lists better myself, well done.
Lebron James, should be in the Ugliest.
iggy Marquis Daniels is ugly too
"Lebron James, should be in the Ugliest."
He does have that Crimson Chin off the Fairly Oddparents feel to him huh?
I like Rudy Gay but he should also be on least likey to pass
Chris Kaman should be on the ugliest list. He looks like a caveman.
Michael Ruffin has gotta be up there too.
Dirk Nowitzki looks like the caveman from the geico commercial
I don't think Monta Ellis is a better pure scorer than anyone I put on that list honestly. Look at the gimmicky offense he plays in. He's a top-notch scorer, but over the guys I listed? I don't see it.
I think you should make a "most clutch" top 10 list too
these lists would have been tough to make granted, but i can still think of guys you missed on almost every list. heres some
and bosh wont even get 20 this year
mike miller, micheal pietrus
I like your list but D-will belongs at the top
I think Melo is the best scorer. Durant has a way bigger role offensivly with OKC, than Melo has with the Nuggets. Durant has more range, but Melo has better post game and is more of a bully. I would put Kobe second, simply for the fact that that was Durants first real good season, while Melo and Kobe have proven themselves for several seasons and less of a role offensivly because they have better 2nd-4th options.
Monta does not belong in the top-scorer list. He is one of the most overrated guys in the nba.
Al Thorton should be higher on the list for players that are least likely to pass... The guys literally shoots the ball every time he touches it..
Are you blind billyk?
billyk never said he wasn't on the list, he said he should be higher on the list, You're the one who's blind.
Just because Bosh won't get 20 a game next year doesn't mean he's not an elite scorer. Look at who he'll be playing with. He's a top-notch scorer in the NBA, playing with 2 top 5 ppg scorers doesn't change that to me.
Deron Williams isn't a better passer than Steve Nash, so he doesn't belong at the top. Anything below that is a matter of opinion.
Mikael Pietrus isn't a top 10 6th man. And Mike Miller is going to start next year.
Josh SMith isn't an elite man-to-man defender. I live in Atlanta, go to Hawks games, and watch them play on most nights that I don't go to games. He's a shot-blocker and rebounder, but he doesn't defend that great man-to-man.
Nick Young should be on the "least likely to pass" list. He shoots the ball everytime he gets it.
1. I'd put Lamar Odom over Jason Terry on the 6th man
2. Is Derrick Rose really a 2nd option? He's the best scorer on his team. I would rather him score more than Boozer
3. You're right about Joakim Noah lol
anyone who calls lebron a second option is a piece trash and doesn't know jack
Lamar Odom is the best 6th man. Yeah Crawford scores more, but Odom rebounds, passes, and scores. he can take over games without even scoring, can't the say the same about Crawford.
Man i honestly think that Dwight Howard is an ovveratted defender he gets alot of blocks and defends the besket well but in actual mam to man defense he doesnt play good defense he just relies on his athleticism to make great plays but doesnt have good techinal defense
"anyone who calls lebron a second option is a piece trash and doesn't know jack"
Yi Jianlian should be on the list of "most softest", but overall your list is pretty good. +1.
"anyone who calls lebron a second option doesn't know jack"
agreed. that sounds dumb.
Dwight is not an overrated defender lol. That is just crazy. He is by far the best defensive player in the NBA.
hes a second option for being selfish or least likely to pass wouldnt you rather have him 2d team then first team lol
Derrick Rose second option??
That gum wall in seattle's pretty nifty
i think jason kapono has to be in top 10 shooters. I saw a video clip where he went around the arc with the 5 balls at 5 stations like in the 3 point shootout, and he hit 24 of the 25 shots. He gets his feet set, and there might not be a man in the league i expect to go down more then him.
Lebron will be a 2nd option in Miami because he will be more of a facilitator. Wade will score the most on the Heat. Lebron will score around 23 and 8-9 assists, maybe 10. He'll also give Wade the reins at the end of the game when they need a big shot, so technically he's a 2nd option now. Doesn't mean he's not the best player on his team
i also have to really disagree with some of the second options. How are rose and DWill second options? They have the ball, they decide who shoots and when they want to shoot and they will lead the team inscoring. They are first options. ANd Rashard lewis hasnt been the number 2 option in orlando for a while. Hedo was better 2 years ago and last year vince and jameer were both ahead of him.
Jason Kapono does deserve a spot on the shooter list.
I think they will be 2nd options because I think:
Al Jefferson will be the leading scorer for Utah, with Williams being the 2nd leading scorer, and I think Rose will be the 2nd leading scorer behind Carlos Boozer. They both are the best players on those teams, but they are 2nd option scorers.
i guess to me first option does not necessarily mean who leads the team in scoring. It is the guy who is the man with the ball who makes the plays and will either score or set everyone else up.
either way, wasnt trying to nit pick overall great pciks and those were just a few that i disagreed with.
Oh its cool. I understand what you mean. I just was thinking 2nd option in terms of scoring, that's all.
Greg Oden should be in the top half, at least, for the ugliest. This dude looks like he's about 50 years old..
How the HELL, did I forget Greg Oden for the ugly list. SMH
could you consider hedo for the ugly list
and sasha for the softest?
Good list, I just think there should be two categories for defense, perimeter and post...
I think the most interesting list is....
Fastest With the Ball:
I would LOVE to see a race with the ball... I know everyone is overwhelmed with Ty's speed, but I think Drose, Monta, and Russell can put up a hell of a fight...
I would also love to see a top 10 clutch list
Top 10 clutch:
Jamal Crawford is more clutch than Joe Johnson, and Turkoglu is very clutch as well. But I like that list
Where's Mr. Big Shot... Billups?
im not gonna lie, chauncey WAS mr. big shot back in detroit...i think his numbers were overrated this year, he played quite a few games without carmelo and had to shoot the ball a lot more
very nice call on jamal crawford...he is very clutch
Like the lists, just a couple of things; Kobe should be in the top 10 shooters and maybe Barbosa should be in fastest with the ball? They do call him the Brazilian Blur after all. I love that Von Wafer just got signed again and is already back on the ball hogging list haha.
Mayo should be on that shooters list.....his j is as pure and pretty as it gets
+1 for that picture of Oden, Steroid lol
Rondo is not faster then Rose. No way. I think Thabo should be a little bit higher too, other then that looks great.
wow all the fastest are pg
- I don't like LeBron, but he's a first option. We all know he is, despite his flaws.
- Monta Ellis is one of the top ten scorers in the NBA. I think Amare Stoudemire is too.
- I think JR Smith is ranked too high on the 6th man list. I'd take Hinrich, Battier and Young over him. Maybe even Ibaka, despite him not being a scorer. Smith is too one dimensional for me and takes too many bad shots... Poor decisions.
- I think Dwayne Wade is a top ten passer in the NBA. I'd put Deron Williams over Rondo as a passer. Jennings was ranked 17th in the NBA in assists, so I don't know how he's in the top ten.
- Steve Novak and Jason Kapono should be on the shooters list.
