consensus top 5

I have been skeptical in the past about making NBA tiers for instance whether kobe and lebron are on MJ's tier, etc. but after watching melo's unspeakable game against lebron, and durants unreal 27 game streak of 25 + points i've decided to make this tier and i think everyone will agree that this is starting to make a LOT of sense

NBA Tier 1:
LeBron James
Kobe Bryant
Dwyane Wade
Carmelo Anthony
Kevin Durant

Tier 2 is like bosh, paul, williams, howard, dirk, etc.

the top 5 seperate themselves because they absolutely can carry their teams..lebron and wade in the past have had horrible surrounding casts and both have found ways to win, kobe has had a good cast but we all know he could still win if he was surrounded by mediocre players, durant is young but hes already averaging 30 and 8 at 21 years old...melo is an absurd scorer, he has so many attributes

you guys agree with what im saying?

I'm hesitant to put Melo and

I'm hesitant to put Melo and Durant up their because the other three literally do everything. Score, assist, rebound, defence. Melo is probably the best scorer in the nba followed by Durant and both rebound at a decent clip but neither are good passers and are slightly above average on D.

Tier 1:
Lebron James
Kobe Bryant
Dwayne Wade
Tier 2:
Carmelo Anthony
Kevin Durant
Chris Paul
Dwight Howard

i disagree with you on that

i disagree with you on that especially on Carmello...you know why because he is a leader on that team with chauncey of course....they have been around the top of the standing for a couple of years in a tough western conference..can win a big games for you and his defense is improving...ands better then stats...
Kevin durant this guy is already worth a max contract...took his team from lottery and maybe to the second round if he can get the 4th or 5th seed in a tough western conference...and this guy is still getting better..

i understand when ppl say

i understand when ppl say james is the best player on the planet...but kobe is either sharing that title or right behind him..and he can argue the same for mello, wade, and howard...

I agree with Adi

I agree with Adi Joseph

LeBron James is probably the best basketball player I have ever seen..clearly leaps and bounds ahead of everyone

Other than that Id probably put Dwight Howard in the 2nd tier.. and possible Melo..I like the new found leadership nowadays from Melo and Dwight Howards offensive game has really come along...except the jumper that he shot off the top of the backboard vs Cle. Haha
