JNixon-Iggy9's Top 50 CURRENT NBA Players
I personally believe if O.J. Mayo was on the Clippers, he'd average 20 ppg. Kobyz has him 33, which is a reach, but I do believe O.J. Mayo is a better player than Eric Gordon though
Brandon Jennings is going to be better than Gordon next year too.
Chris Kaman isn't all that great to me. I probably would replace him with l Horford if I could (at #49), but Kaman isn't an elite big man. He's above average, but nothing to get terribly worked up about. I wouldn't be upset if Kaman was left out of anyone's top 50.
i would take kaman over rashard lewis in a heart beat.
I advise yall not to sleep on jennings dude is a beast and he has a very good work ethic
I'm not high on Kaman either, but he's definitely a top 50 player.
And I highly doubt Mayo would average 20 on the Clippers. He'd be in the same exact situation as Gordon... Stuck behind two veteran players in the pecking order... A ball dominant point guard in Davis and a center, who slowly became a blackhole last season, in Kaman.
Jennings is a good young player, but to say he's the 34th best player in the entire NBA right now is crazy... The same goes for Stephen Curry.
Mayo plays with Rudy Gay and Zach Randolph, 2 players that average more ppg over Davis and Kaman repsectively, and are ball-dominant as well, and still was better across the board than Eric Gordon. Chris Kaman and Baron Davis aren't as ball-dominant as those 2 by any stretch. I think Mayo could average right at 20 ppg in that offense.
And look for Jennings and Curry to make leaps. I think they will be the #'s they are right now by the end of the season. This isn't based directly on their performance last season. Where they are right now is how I think they will be heading into next season until the end of the season. If you think conservatively, don't make a list like this. That's all I can say.
well when mayo and gordon play against each other, why does gordon always out play him? both on offense and defense...
Tell you the same way I told butidonthavemoney.....You can't base whether a player is better than another player off of a single individual matchup. There are 28 starting other SG's in the NBA besides these 2, and Mayo was slightly better at everything cumulatively last season. So, I think Mayo is better.
Man Yao Ming at 8 is a travesty. I totally agree with that 2 years ago, but he even said himself he won't be the same this year or anytime real soon. So as far as top players right now. I think maybe, MAYBE he should crack 50. Think about it.
What does LeBron do better than Wade?
Wade's shot is better, not even close. maybe one day Lebron will learn how to shoot...probably not...hasn't developed in 7 years very much.
Wade has a better handle/crossover....LeCrab is too busy takin 5 steps every play and crab dribbling all over the place.
Wade has a killer instict, LeBron doesn't and is a quiter.
Wade is clutch, LeBron isn't obviously...
Wade has better one on one defense....LeBron's defensive is horribly overrated because of his chase down blocks....he's ok 1 on 1.
I just think the media puts it in your heads to think he's better and up there with Kobe. and now guess what....Lebron is going to be Wade's sidekick. Real basketball heads take Wade EVERYTIME! He will play on WADE's team. Who takes that game winning shot? Wade....Eric Spoelstra will get the shot before LeBrick.
Lebron will never have the ability to do something like Wade did vs Dallas.
