I'll

I'll play.

Gobert
Westbrook
Porzingis
Durant
Whiteside
Leonard
Curry
Wall
Thomas
Bledsoe
Green
Jordan
Irving
Nurkic
Jokic
George
DeRozan
Griffin
Paul
Bradley
Gasol
Simmons
Lowry
Anthony
Favors

Some of these were blatantly obvious (Cousins vs. Westbrook!), some were just tossups where I couldn't really make an argument for one over the other, just went with my gut instict (Nurkic vs. Noel), and some were total apples and oranges (Bledsoe vs. Drummond).

This is my opinion.... Davis

This is my opinion....

Davis > Gobert

Cousins > Westbrook

Porzingis > Embiid

Durant > Antetokounmpo

Towns > Whiteside

Leonard > James...he's LeBron's nightmare match up

Curry > Harden

Turner > Wall...a lot would probably disagree but I think Myles has much more room to grow.

Thomas > Butler

Bledsoe > Drummond

Green > Aldridge

Ball > Jordan...think he'll more than likely win rookie of the year.

Irving > Capela...I like Capela's potential though

Nurkic > Noel...Nurkic is like a Bosnian Shaquille O'neal

Batum > Jokic...extremely close

George > Ibaka

Howard > DeRozan

Griffin > Vucevic (though he's underrated)

Paul > Gasol...both future hall of famers

Bradley > Bazemore...was hoping so badly the Pelicans could somehow end up with Bradley he'd have been a perfect fit.

Gasol > Adams

Simmons > Fultz...Simmons has the better all around game while Fultz is definitely the better shooter.

Lowry > Maker

Hollis-Jefferson > Anthony...Hollis-Jefferson will end up being one of the best defensive players in the NBA and has potential left in him.

Fox > Favors...Sacramento has their point guard of the future.

Confusing

The question was who is better but put Hollis-Jefferson ove Melo because Jefferson MIGHT be one of the best "defensive player" in the league. Melo is already one of the best scorers in the league. Jefferson hasn't made any defensive teams and no one fears him defensively so makes no sense.

Myles Turner of John Wall cause you think he has more potential down the road. So the question should be who will be better in 5 years lol not who is the better player cause Turner is not better than Wall as we speak.

Then you put Howard over Derozan. Howard has been on the decline for years so he not better than derozan now nor will he be in the near future.

Steph Curry

IMO Harden is way better than Curry. Everyone overrates him just because hes such a great shooter. I think James is a great shooter and can do more things on offense. I guess thats just me.

Well its a tough question to

Well its a tough question to awnser because Harden cant really dissappear in games and still end up with 35 the way Curry does. Steph really sees the floor and understands the game well. Harden brings such an amazing blend of strength and skill that he is literally unstoppable but he hasnt proven to be as effective off the ball. This year will be interesting as Paul joins the Rockets. For the record I think Harden is a better player and always have but will still put Curry higher on my rankings because of his teams success and abillity to win.

I'm in Houston and watch a

I'm in Houston and watch a ton of Rockets, and I can say without hesitation that James Harden is the most overrated player of the last decade and it's not even close. If he didn't average almost 11 ft's a game we're looking at an 18ppg scorer on almost 20 shots who shoots low 40% from the floor, low 30% from 3, plays ZERO DEFENSE and has broken his own record for to's in a season 4 consecutive years. If this were literally any other era in basketball he'd have been banished to the minors.

Is it who has Produced better right now or who would I choose if

I was putting a team together today?

Davis

Westbrook

Embiid

Antetokoukempo

KAT

Kawhi

Steph

Wall

Butler

Bledsoe

Draymond

Lonzo

Kyrie

Nurkic

Batum

PG13

DeRozan

Blake

Paul

Avery

Gasol

Simmons

Lowry

Carmelo

Fox

I know some of my picks can been seen as ridiculous but I was picking as if I was Building a team for Future success that's why I chose Fox, Ball, Greek & Kawhi for example,

If the question is who would you choose to win the Championship This season or Right Now (Ahora Mismo) Then obviously I'd take players like Lebron, Favors, DeAndre Jordan,
