The problems with this list are endless. My favorites:

-Nash in the top 7

- Bosh ahead of Rondo and Rose

-Westbrook #30

Glad someone who obviously doesnt watch basketball came up with it.

This is a pretty bad list.

This is a pretty bad list. But Shaq as the 35th best player in the NBA is what's most laughable.

lol

I am guessing it must have been done before the season. Also, the guys who voted are more than likely close to the game. But, as for the future, you can only guess what happens. I am sure a lot of people's lists pre-season were somewhat similar to this, minus maybe Shaq and with Chris Paul being slightly higher. It is a bad list, but making an accurate list is incredibly difficult.

A lot of people hate on Monta

A lot of people hate on Monta Ellis. Apparently, he isn't as good as his numbers suggest. Not even in the realm of being a top 50 player. This isn't unusual at all really, and not to mention the other billion things that are retarded about this list...

It seems like some of the voters are living in the past a bit.

A few changes I'd make:

- Shaq shouldn't be on the list.

- Nash should be 15-20 at the highest

- I'd put Kobe at #2, but it's a fairly distant #2 so far.

- Switch Gilbert Arenas and Ray Allen. If Ray Allen is having an off night he is might as well be on the bench. He is too one dimensional these days. I still think Gilbert has something in the tank, he just needs a fresh start.

- As much as I love Tim Duncan, he should be closer to #20.

- CP3 should probably be #5.

- Wall is too low. He should be at around 40 in my opinion.

- No Blake Griffin? He deserves a spot around #25 based on the season so far.

Of course, who knows how long ago some of these surveys were completed. It can take a while to get almost 80 replies from reputable sources. A lot can change in a few weeks, especially with a rookie like Griffin. I thought it was amusing to see Jefferson and Boozer side by side.

The fact Hedo is on this list automatically makes it fraudulent. Sporting NEws should stick to baseball

Blake should be on this test

Blake should be on this test he is proving to be one of the top big men in the league. In my opinion he is just as good as Dwight and I'm an Orlando fan. He looks like a top ten player already and the more he plays the better he gets.

K-Mart at 45? haha this is a joke. And saying Shaq is better than Boozer and Al Jefferson is hilarious. nash should be closer to 15. Paul is obvious. Westbrook is obvious. Boguts a little high. No Blake, No Monta, No J-rich, Wall at 50....... Wallace is more like 25-35, not 49. This is terrible.

Wow no Tyreke Evans, Andre Iguodala, Monta Ellis, Eric Gordon or Stepen Jackson. They must really hate guards.

Shaq no one really wanted to

Shaq no one really wanted to sign him in the offseason so why would he be 35th.

This list is a joke Jamison, Turkoglu over Iggy, Ellis, Evans thats odd.

Watch Durant win another scoring title and be #2 on this list give me a break.
