Kevin Garnett, Jason Kidd,

Kevin Garnett, Jason Kidd, Kevin Love are all much much too high I think. the rest of it looks good to me. Good job.

EDIT: Yao at 8 is a little high for a guy who hasn't played in a year and most likely won't ever be the same again.

There is no reason Vince

There is no reason Vince Carter should be on your list. Jason Kidd is way too low.

Also I find it interesting that no L.A. Clippers players are on this list and the list is fairly accurate, people seem to be overrating the Clips this year. They are still the same old unharnessed talent L.A. Clippers.

Al Jefferson and Stephen

Al Jefferson and Stephen Jackson should be rated lower. Why is Al Horford number 49? I'm not being biased, but no way Jennings is above Curry. And where is David Lee?

Isnt Yao Ming a Bit High For

Isnt Yao Ming a Bit High For Somebody That Didnt play Last Season?
Put Russell Westbrook In
I Dont Like Amar'e At 15 i still think Duncan is better than him
I Dont Think Curry is Better Than Ellis Yet
I Dont Like Rashard Lewis There
Kevin Martin Averaged 20.6ppg and aaron brooks 19.6ppg and 5.3apg
Not Trying To Overrate Rockets Players But I think the two of them are better than some players there
I Think Gay is Better than Josh Smith
But Then Again These are just my opninions ^_^

I gave a point just because there had to have been a great deal of thought put into something like that. The top 20-25 had to have been brain rattling

list

Players that should be on here
1. Russell Westbrook-
2.Chris Kaman- averages better stats than Brook Lopez, top 3 center based on stats
3. David Lee- 20.2 and 11.7, 54 double doubles
4. Ray Allen- Still a great player in my opinion, may be old, but still produces and is the best shooter in the game. Continues to be underrated.
5. Aaron Brooks- I can understand all the hype behind Jennings, But Brooks has better stats and will likely average more assists with the return of Yao

I think that Bogut is way too high, considering Kaman is not even on the list and that Rashard Lewis should not be on there at all.

But overall, great list Iggy, people need to realize how difficult it is to make one of these!

It is hard to say the top 3

It is hard to say the top 3 or 4 are pretty much locked with Durant, Wade, Lebron and Kobe but after that it is just a matter of preference or opinion, everybody's top 50 will be different some way or another I guarantee it,

Ellis and Curry should be low

Ellis and Curry should be low 40's to mid 30's and Lee should be there. Jennings isnt that good yet either and Gay isnt that good ether

Even though John Wall hasn't

Even though John Wall hasn't played a game, some of the PG's you guys are putting ahead of him are not as good. Wall is better than Aaron Brooks, Jameer Nelson, and Brandon Jennings. A lot of people sell Wall short on this site and I'm not sure why. I would assume it's b/c he turns the ball over too much and isn't the greatest long rang shooter. Those are probably two of the easier aspects of a players game that can improve upon entering the NBA. I don't see any problems with Wall averaging 18ppg 7-8apg 4rpg 2stl's in his rookie year, along with all of his intangibles he is in the top 50. His ability to get into the lane at will and draw fouls could actually allow him to average up to 20 his rookie year. This kid is going to be a superstar and has to be mentioned in the top 50 already even without playing a game. Stop selling him short.

Rashard Lewis is a one

Rashard Lewis is a one dimensional player now and shouldn't be in the top 50, didn't you see his performance in the playoffs? At this point in his career he is only a spot up shooter who is a defensive liability.

I'll just be patient. I'm not

I'll just be patient. I'm not going to put a rookie in my current NBA players list before the season starts. I also didn't include Jameer Nelson or Aaron Brooks in my list, so maybe that was directed at someone else.

Also, I have a hard time believing Wall will be better than Brandon Jennings next season. Wall's rookie numbers will probably look about the same as Jennings' rookie numbers, with less accuracy from 3-point land, more turnovers, and better FG%. I think Jennings will make a leap to elite level status next season though, so I don't think Wall is better right now or at least for the next 2 years.

Rashard Lewis struggled in the Celtic series, but I personally believe he's at least a top 50 player in the NBA. The guy could be around 20 ppg and 7 rpg player if he played on certain teams I'd say. And that team would be a playoff team too. He's a capable 2nd option, on a contending team

It isn't easy to complie a list

It isn't easy to compile a list of the best 50 players in the NBA. It's easy for people to say "This guy is too high" etc etc but it takes time to research the information and then to put one guy over the other takes even more time. I don't think anyone would have a list everyone would agree with, but it's interesting to see people's opinion on these kind of topics.

Something called.....the

Something called.....the playoffs my friend. I have come to the realization that Lebron is better in the regular season, but Kobe has the killer instinct when it matters. For now (I think Kobe will decline in 2 years or so) Kobe Bryant is better than Lebron IMO, since Kobe will rise and be a champion.

@JNixon's

I would put Durant ahead of Wade,

KG, CP3(I think Kobe-LeBron-Wade-Durant-Carmelo round out the top-5) are too high.

I also still think I'd put Duncan ahead of every PF except Gasol.

I think Durant is a little

I think Durant is a little too high.

Based on quarters 1-3, he's the 4th best player in the league... However, he's not nearly as good in the 4th quarter.

I'd put Paul, Howard, Williams and Dirk above him until I see his improvement next season. And has he really passed up Melo as a player? I'm not sure...

I think so...He's 21 and lead

I think so...He's 21 and lead the NBA in scoring. And he's good for 7 rpg too. Durant deserves top 5 mention, and I think he has become the 4th best player in the NBA. He's only going to get better too. I think he will lead the NBA in scoring next season too. He's better than any SF not named Lebron James right now.

Those things are true about

Those things are true about Durant, but you can't ignore how much he drops off in the 4th quarter. Look at the numbers... They don't lie.

He drops in almost every category... Points, FG%, 3-PT%, etc. He's not the same player in the 4th quarter, but he'll get better. That's why I said I have to wait and see how improves there this upcoming season.

I also think he's someone who can still be taken out of his game with physical play (see Ron Artest in first round). He still needs work on creating for his teammates (at least being respectable there) and on the defensive end.

Did Eric Gordon fall off the

Did Eric Gordon fall off the face of the earth??? I mean people O.J. Mayo at 33 and Gordon is not even in the top 50? are you kidding me? And Brandon Jennings is ridiculously overrated. After his great start he cooled down tremendously and shot a terrible percentage. How is he better than Gordon? And Kaman getting no mention on the first list on here? are you kidding me? Its not like he was just an all-star last year...
