I don't think Monta Ellis is

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 Melo is the best

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.

@flybobbyguy Just because

@flybobbyguy

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.

1. I'd put Lamar Odom over

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

Lamar Odom is the best 6th

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.

i think jason kapono has to

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

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

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

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

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.

I think the most interesting

I think the most interesting list is....

Fastest With the Ball:
Ty Lawson
Devin Harris
Rajon Rondo
Derrick Rose
Aaron Brooks
T.J. Ford
Brandon Jennings
Monta Ellis
Roddy Beaubois
Russell Westbrook

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

im not gonna lie, chauncey

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

Like the lists, just a couple

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.

- I don't like LeBron, but

- 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.
