Best of the best

1. Best Player Now… Wade. Handles, athleticism, defense. Turns it over a lot, but I'd rather have him than anyone else in the league right now.

2. Underrated………. Aldridge= Should have been an all-star.

3. Most Overrated......Brook "no boards" Lopez.

4. Best In 5 Years….. Griffin/Durant = Toss up. If Griffin gets a solid 15-18ft J (which he flashed), look out!

5. Best Young Player...Griffin

6. Best Rookie………Irving. By default. He will get more opportunity than any other rook.

7. Most Athletic……. Still has to be Lebron. But Blake could easily be in this spot.

8. Best Leader……….Kidd. Defense, court vision and and a cool head. The definition of leader.

9. Best All-Time……. c'mon= MJ. No reasons need to be given.

dude awesome threads,

shame its about to come to an end lol

1. Best Player Now… LeBron James - Haters will hate but you don't have to like him to recognize his talent

2. Underrated………. Eric Gordon - didn't mention him when I did 2guards but looking at this list, he doesn't get enough credit for being a great scorer but also a great defender

3. Most Overrated......Jameer Nelson - Boozer was close but at least he does put up monster 30-15 games once in a while. Jameer isn't getting it done for Dwights game and he needs a new team

4. Best In 5 Years….. Kevin Durant - He'll figure it all out and have a couple of rings in this time period. He should also lead the league in scoring in those 5 years too.

5. Best Young Player... John Wall - will put it all together and become arguably the best PG in the league if he improves his shot selection and stays healthy.

6. Best Rookie………Derrick Williams - I really wish votes had him at PF cuz I believe Jan Vesley is the best rookie next year but hey, whatever. Williams will hold his own in the NBA

7. Most Athletic……. Blake Griffin - yes his dunk contest dunks were overrated but he the regular season dunks were enough for me to say WOW... I do believe that DeMar DeRozan is the most athletic plaer though.

8. Best Leader……….Jason Kidd - He's probably #2 all time as far as a leader and as much as Kobe has won titles as the "leader" of the Lakers (had some help with Fisher IMO) but Kidd is best leader of the names listed.

9. Best All-Time……. Michael Jordan - Not sure why but he is REALLY good in 2k11. So I guess he must be pretty good ;-)

best player now- wade- I

best player now- wade- I honestly believe that if he was 6ft 8in and 260 like LBJ he would be 10x better than LBJ

underrated- aldridge-should have been an all-star over tim duncan(sorry timy)

overrated- I would say brook lopez because he can't get rebounds(and he's on a bad team so I don't think its possible he can be overrated), but Johnson has to be the most overrated and overpaid player in the NBA

best in 5- it's close between rose and durant, but i'll have to say Durant because he has already mastered scoring, so once he rounds out his game(which he already has started) he will be the best player in the league.

best young player- Griffin

best rookie- Derrick williams, he won't be the rookie of the year because he is stuck behind love and beasly, but he is defanitly the best player in his class.

most athletic- as much as I hate the guy LBJ is the most athletic....that might be changing though

best leader- Kobe, I don't like him either but it's hard to argue with 5 rings

best all-time-Michael Jordan.......although it was close between him and Brian sclalabrine

Wade will be the best SG in 5

Wade will be the best SG in 5 years? He turns 30 in January, has struggled with injuries and relies very heavily on his athleticism. I know the NBA is extremely weak in terms of young SG, but I would take 27-year old Eric Gordon or 26-year old DeRozan over the 34 and mileage-heavy Wade. Shabazz Muhammad is also a dark horse.

My vote

1. Best Player Now… Wade - Proved to be the leader and most effiecent player this past season. Narrowly edges Dirk after he also had a tremendous season.

2. Underrated... Gortat - Showed that he is capable of contributing much more then he has then when he was with Orlando.

3. Most Overrated... Joe Johnson - Came away making more money then anyone else in last years free agency craze.

4. Best In 5 Years… Durant - Already a Multi time scoring champ with his team a few years away from leading the West.

5. Best Young Player... Cousins - Although he isn't the player that Griffin is his ceiling is higher and he is also a few years younger.

6. Best Rookie... Williams - Exceptional athlete that can play in the league right now.

7. Most Athletic…LeBron - 6'9 point forward does everything well.

8. Best Leader… Kidd - I think after this past season Kidd demonstrated a will to win along with the rest of the Mavericks. His PG play in the playoffs shouldn't go unnoticed.

9. Best All-Time…Jordan - He played basketball with Bugs Bunny.

1. Best Player Now - Dwyane

1. Best Player Now - Dwyane Wade - Miami is Dwyane Wades team.

2. Underrated - Luol Deng - We're not talking about the best underrated player but the Most underrated player. Everybody and anybody can say Lamarcus Aldridge is an All-Star, he gets the credit he deserves but that position was just full with Griffin,Love,Gasol etc.. Luol Deng is Underrated, this guy has been putting up 17,18 points, gets 6 rebounds while shooting at a high percentage and being the 2nd or 3rd option in a contending chicago team. Think about that.

3. Most Overrated - Jameer Nelson, The only reason he was ever an all-star was because he was a starting point guard in a championship contending orlando team with Dwight Howard in it. Dwight makes him look better and these past two seasons he has been an average starting point guard at best.

4. Best In 5 Years - Kevin Durant - Will be scary good, i see shades of the Iceman George Gervin in durant. Silky smooth scorer. If he learns to have a more all-around game he will be a longer, taller version of Tracy McGrady in his Prime. Add in being more assertive and maturing as a leader he will be scary good. With him as Batman and Westbrook as Robin the thunder, with the right pieces could be the best team in the league for years to come.

5. Best Young Player - Blake Griffin - Will be the best Power Forward in the league in the Near Future. As he develops a better post game and improves his defense he could be the next coming of Karl Malone, with even better rebounding. Get him a good point guard he will dominate. He is the most explosive player in the league and is already well known and considered a superstar by many. If the clippers build the right pieces through him, they could finally get out of the Lakers' shadow.

6. Best Rookie - Kyrie Irving - With a Weak draft class, i see Kyrie Irving as a borderline all-star at best.

7. Most Athletic - Blake Griffin - Most explosive player in the league. Hustles at every play, has heart and is very fast. Great Hands and Instincts.

8. Best Leader - Kobe Bryant - Even NBA Players say it, Kobe is a cold hearted killer. A silent assassin. His will to win is equal to none.(Unless you include Michael Jordan). He is a closer. Clutch player. Sure sometimes he will take bad shots but thats because he has an Alpha Dog attitude. A swagger. He knows that Its on HIM whether the Lakers win or lose. Its on him to take the lakers to another lever. He is a Great Leader that expects alot from his teammates.

9. Best All-Time - Michael Jordan - do i need to say anything? Michael Jordan is the best. Do you need proof? How about his 6 championships? His 5 Regular season mvps?14 All-Star Appearances? His 6 Finals MVPs? HIm leading the League in scoring 10x? The list goes on and on for MJs accomplishments. He is Simply the BEST.

I really like how the O.P.

I really like how the O.P. has failed to mention Kobe on either the best now or the best ever yet the man has 5 titles and 7 finals appearances. But yeah, Duncan deserves to be a best of all time finalist over him.

1. Best Player Now- Lebron

1. Best Player Now- Lebron James. He provides everything on the court.

2. Underrated………. LaMarcus Aldridge. He should have been an all-star Kevin Love.

3. Most Overrated......Carlos Boozer is the most overrated of the 5 IMO. He came up incredibly small in the playoffs and has never been a very good defender. On top of that, he's injury prone and super highly paid.

4. Best In 5 Years…..It's a tough choice between Rose and Durant, but I'll go with Rose. I just would feel more comfortable with Rose in this discussion if I had to choose.

5. Best Young Player...Has to be Blake Griffin. Scary that he still is scratching the surface.

6. Best Rookie………Irving is the best rookie. Most ready to be a leader as well.

7. Most Athletic…….Lebron James.

8. Best Leader……….Kobe Bryant is the best leader to me.

9. Best All-Time…….Michael Jordan

It actually blows my mind

It actually blows my mind when people say Wade is the best player now. I don't like him either but anyone who says Wade is better than Lebron is just hating on Lebron.

Oh and NO EZ BUCKETS its very hypothetical to say 'I honestly believe that if Wade was 6ft 8in and 260 like LBJ he would be 10x better than LBJ.'

Imagine if Steve Nash or Chris Paul were 6ft 8in and 260 with their abilities. Deal in reality

1. Best player

1. Best player now..................Rose. He's scary good. Just imagine if Booz had actually showed up for the playoffs. The Bulls may have won it all

2. Underrated........................Aldridge. He's really turning inot quite a nice player. EGordan was a close second. He's a gifted scorer

3. Overrated.........................JJohnson. I wanted to place Booz here but i can't find a way to justify paying JJ 20 million per year for what he gives

4. Best in 5 years..................Tough call. I'll go with Rose because he is a killer out there. Durant is very tempting though. If he ever developes that killer instinct, look out

5. Best young player..................Wall. I like Griffin a lot but Wall could be a terror. If Griffin ever developes a reliable mid-range game, I'll have to pick him.

6. Best rookie...........................Kanter. I've been very high on this guy for a while and i think he could become an all-star. Think of a Pau Gasol with balls

7. Most atheltic.......................Josh Smith. Griffin is super athletic but J-Smoove is one of the most athletic players i've ever seen

8. Best leader.........................Pierce. Former finals MVP. Kobe still seems a bit stand-offish and Garnett...well, in my opinion Garnett is a biotch. He's a great player, but he is a total &$#%#&@! when someone his own size gets in his face. I don't know about the rest of you, but i wouldn't want my leader to run away at the first sign of confrontation.

Best all-time..........................Russell. Anyone else have 11 rings? I love Jordan and he was HUGE, but Russell still has 5 more rings than him and he won those rings as THE MAN. Numbers are great but championships are better.

Best

1. Best Player Now… Wade. he really is just doing it all for the Heat and even made up for LeBron in the Finals. best SG and best player in the league

2. Underrated………. EGordon. he isnt getting any recognition. he averaged like, what? 23 something points a game this past season? as a Warriors fan i wouldnt mention another divison SG but this kid is probably a top 10 SG right now and could be top 5 in the next 5. he is only 22

3. Most Overrated......this is a huge tie between JJohnson, Boozer, and BLopez. but id have to say Lopez. he has been talked about maybe a top 5 center in the NBA? but hes just too damn lazy on the boards. i honestly cant see him average a double double on a nightly basis, and hes primarily a scorer, so him.

4. Best In 5 Years….. Durant. all hands down

5. Best Young Player.Wall. this dude will lead the PG for years to come. he was one of the best playmakers ive seen this season, and his TOs are really a big difference from the others. idk about MVP in 2013, but hes on righht track with the Wizards team

6. Best Rookie………Irving. he will have a lot of opportunities to get better and will most likely be the starting PG this season so he will have the keys to the franchise

7. Most Athletic……. James. he has the leaping ability of Dwight and insane athleticisim of Wade. hes just under 6'9 and 250 guys.

8. Best Leader……….Garnett. hes already shown leadership in the TWolves as a franchise player and brought leadership as an aging veteran, but he has what a lot of teams would want in their locker room: a stron veteran prescence who knows how to win and has reinvented the definition of defense when he came to Boston

9. Best All-Time……. lets just say this: Jordan, Wilt, Magic, Duncan, Bird.

1. Best Player Now…

1. Best Player Now… Paul...... Wade........ James...... Dirk......... Howard

Howard is the most dominant defensive player in the league and a total game changer, James is right behind.

2. Underrated………. Lowry... EGordon..... Deng....... Aldridge.. Gortat

Took over for Roy, should be an all star for a while at only 26.

3. Most Overrated......Nelson.. JJohnson.... Granger... Boozer.... BLopez

Paid like a star but hes more like an undersized pf 3rd option with no defense.

4. Best In 5 Years….. Rose.....Wade......... Durant..... Griffin...... Howard

He should have a ring by then and his defense and leadership will only improve.

5. Best Young Player.Wall...... Harden...... P George..Griffin...... Cousins

Wall will be a superstar too but Ill take the great PF over the great PG almost every time.

6. Best Rookie………Irving.... Burks......... Williams... Kanter..... Valanciu

Wont put up the best rookie numbers but I think he'll be the best player.

7. Most Athletic……. Rose..... Wade........ James...... Griffin....... Howard

He's just a straight up beast at 6'10 250 and he was coming off knee surgery.

8. Best Leader……….Kidd.... Kobe......... Pierce...... Garnett..... Noah

Would have said Duncan but Kobe is a straight killer.

9. Best All-Time……. Magic... Jordan....... Bird......... Duncan..... Wilt

Could write a book on why he's the best but it's not necassary.

1. Best Player Now-Lebron

1. Best Player Now-Lebron (Anyone who watched the regular season and the entire playoffs, not just the finals, realizes he is still the best player in the league night to night.)

2. Underrated-Eric Gordon (The guy is a beast and I expect him to take that step next year along with Blake Griffin and possibly make a playoff appearance.)

3. Most Overrated-Brook Lopez (He's one of the best centers in the league, but problem is he does not get that many rebounds and when he is the best player on the team the team doesn't tend to win many games.)

4. Best In 5 Years-D. Rose (Look how far he led his team this year and he continues to improve every year I see him leading a few championship teams in the future.)

5. Best Young Player- Blake Griffin (Right now Blake Griffin is one of the best young players in the league and will only improve)

6. Best Rookie-Kyrie Irving (Love his potential and see him becoming an all star in the future)

7. Most Athletic-Lebron (I'd still go with Bron, that combination of strength, speed, and leaping ability is incredible)

8. Best Leader-Kevin Garnett (His leadership ability on and off the court fires up his teammates to give it all out on the court)

9. Best All-Time- Michael Jordan (The best all time and noone has gotten close to his level of accomplishment on the basketball court)

1. Best Player Now - Lebron

1. Best Player Now - Lebron James

2. Underrated - Eric Gordon - side note: Lemarcus Aldridge has been "underrated" so vocally this year everybody knows he really good

3. Most Overrated- Carlos Boozer

4. Best In 5 Years - Derrick Rose

1. Best Player Now..... Dirk

1. Best Player Now..... Dirk in a VERY CLOSE race. Coming off a sublime playoffs. Unstoppable on offense, clutch, and also gives you rebounds and blocked shots.

2. Underrated………. Marcin Gortat-- other than Dwight Howard, Gortat's best is as good as any center.

3. Most Overrated...... Carlos Boozer -- a regular season stat stuffer who is also vastly overpaid

4. Best In 5 Years......... Durant (his size and length gives him a slight edge over Rose). in 5 years could end up being a 6'9 Jordan at his peak which is incredibly scary for the rest of the league. Blake Griffin and Dwight Howard will be just behind those two with LeBron James being the league's best elder statesman by then.

5. Best Young Player. ... Blake Griffin with Tyreke Evans giving him a run for his money if he returns to form.

6. Best Rookie……….........Derrick Williams. I think a lot of rookies will do very well in spurts, and it will come down to consistency.

7. Most Athletic……. ...... Blake Griffin -- best combination of size, strength, explosiveness, and athleticism.

8. Best Leader……….Jason Kidd -- super high BBIQ, sees the floor, hits clutch shots, makes others better

9. Best All-Time……. Michael Jordan -- best all-around offensive weapon in league history. Most clutch player who played GREAT defense too. If you are having a draft of all-time NBA players, Jordan is the first pick. Magic's unique blend of passing, ball handling, size, vision, and leadership would make you think about taking him with the 2nd pick. Wilt is great, but Russell, Kareem, Shaq, and Hakeem can give Wilt a run for his money, but Jordan is in a league of his own with Magic being the 2nd best non-center ever and the best point guard in NBA history.

All Players Considered

1. Best Player Now-LeBron James

2. Underrated-LaMarcus Aldridge, who is awesome

3. Most Overrated-Carlos Boozer, I overrated the heck out of the guy, especially after his play-off performance.

4. Best In 5 Years-LeBron James, I do not see anyone catching up to him. Durant has the best chance, but right now it is looking like LeBron has it on lock. LeBron is going to be all of 31 years old. Still think he will be the best.

5. Best Young Player (2 years)-John Wall. Blake Griffin is fantastic, but I think Wall might be even more special. It will be more interesting than you think, I will tell you that much.

6. Best Rookie-Kyrie Irving. He was my favorite prospect in the draft and I think he will justify being the first pick.

7. Most Athletic-LeBron James. Still has to "lose athleticism" at much more of a rate before someone else takes the title.

8. Best Leader-Kobe Bryant. No one is more focused and prepared to play than Kobe. Say whatever you want about him as a person, but his leadership has been top notch for a long time. People indeed step up their play with Kobe leading the charge.

9. Best All-Time- Michael Jordan

2. Underrated- Eric Gordon. kid was unbelievable before injury.

3. Ovverated- Carlos Boozer. easy choice

4. Best Player in 5 Years- Lebron. He will be 31 and possibly still in his prime.

5. Best Young Player- John Wall. I think he has all the tools to be special.

6. Best Rookie- Derrick Williams. I still think Cavs should of took him.

7. Most Athletic- Lebron James. Griffin, Rose, Wall, J Smith, and Dwight are right behind him.

8. Best Leader- Chris Paul. He has to be for his team each and every night. Jason Kidd has Dirk and other players who are capable of leading.

9. Best Player ever- MJ.
