Top Players At Each Position
Tell me you top 10 at each position(pg,sg,sf,pf,c,6th,coach)
6.Stan Van Gundy
I don't agree with Yao over Howard and Manu over Iggy and Ellis. Ellis scores 25 a night while Iggy gets 20 5 and 5.
Okay, i'll simply make some changes(yawn, just don't have the time).
Rose will never be a Nash and Nash is better(at this point) than Williams.
You screwed Chauncy at #6 and Devin Harris at #9. You must be a Westbrook and grey haired Kidd fan beause both of those players don't hold a dime to Chauncey and Harris. I like Rondo too, but his innability to hit the outside shot places him below Chauncey and Harris.
I still think Pierce is better than a #10 at this point in his career. Sometimes a players ability to make a big shot despite a dip in numbers automatically places him above other youngsters.
I always expect Dirk to get smacked. He is beter than Bosh, Gasol, and Stoudemire. Dirk is the best shooting big man in NBA history. He's developed an inside game as well. If I took those four they would rank like this: Dirk, Bosh, Stoudemire, Gasol. Also, just to note something....Duncan is still classified a PF though he moves between PF/C each and every season. He would still be the best PF in the game and the best of all time.
How is Yao still the best center in hoops? Are you his brother? his cousin? His injury problems void any ability the guy has. You can't be great sitting in street clothes on the bench. D-How is the best Center in the game. Duncan at Center is far superior, as is Al Jefferson(upside mixed with health), and I think this years Shaq is as good as Yao has ever been. Shoot, I would take Horford over Yao.
I don't argue "coaches". Red Aurbach will forever be king of pro hoops as is John Wooden to College Hoops.
Alright some comments:
I think Rondo is a tad too high, I would prob place him behind KIdd. And Rose would be at #4 for me after Nash.
A healthy Kevin Martin definitly deserves a spot here over Jamal Crawford.
I also think Ellis should be higher. IMO he is better than Mayo.
Don't know how you can have Trevor Ariza on this list over Gerald Wallace, I think that's a major oversight.
Maybe someday Love will deserve that #10 ranking but right now I think Zach Randolph deserves it. 20.8 ppg, 11.7 rpg and he is far more efficient offensively than Love. Yes Randolph is a poor defender but Love is just as bad.
Yep I obviously agree with everyone else that posted about Howard being without a doubt the best center in the league today.
Also I think Bogut is too low. 25 years old, 15.9 PPG, 10.2 RPG, 2.5 BPG and a defensive force in the paint. Right now there is no way I would place half those guys over him. Obviously a history of injuries has affected him but if you place Yao at #1 I'm going to assume that you're not putting too much weight on durability.
I think you made another huge oversight here as well. No Anderson Varejao? But Zydrunas Ilgauskas makes it from Cleveland? Thats just weird.
I'll just put up my top ten list as well. For the sake of simplicity I used the same positions the OP used for certain players (Duncan as a C, Stoudemire as a PF, Ginobli as a SG but not as a 6th man etc) and I also didn't place much emphasis on durability in these rankings.
10. Shaquille O’Neal
9. Mike Dunleavy
