      Worst list of the bunch.

      Curry BETTER than Lebron. Cmon man…Lebrons better than ever. 30yo or not. 

      Durant at six! He’s #2. And then there’s a gap.

      PG13 at 7? Did you guys see what happened to the guy! Im highly skeptical he will be back to his best so soon. See Shaun Livingstone re: same injury. 

      And if Damien Lillard is better than Jimmy Butler…Im watching the wrong sport.

      Damn now I gotta make the definitive list…..

         I realize that Lebron & K.D. are #1 & #2 & the "Brow" is coming on strong & will most likely be a future #1… We all basically have the same 25 players in that top 25… I Luv Lebron & K.D. I just wanted to give Curry some love for the Historic year he had leading Golden State to that Title – I’m not a Warriors fan, I wasn’t trolling, I would never do that – I have too much respect for the Basketball knowledge that all you guys (&girls) possess… I just decided to give the guys who really had amazing years in 2015 (Curry, Harden & Westbrook) some respect… I didn’t mean to get anyone angry – I hope you all can forgive me… Super psyched for the Season! good luck to everyone & their Fav teams & players!

        I have to correct you about what you wrote about Paul George and Shaun Livingston having the same injury. Their injuries weren’t the same nor are they even in the same universe in regards to severity. 

        Not only did Livingston dislocate (he didn’t break it) his tibia-femoral, he also *TORE* his ACL, MCL, PCL and his lateral meniscus. He also dislocated his patella. 

        George didn’t tear a single ligament in his knee, do any damage to his meniscus or his patella. No damage to any tendons or his ankle. No infections of the wound. No setbacks during recovery (he returned in 8 months). It was basically only a clean break (compound fracture) of his tibia-fibia. George’s injury was serious, BUT it’s not as serious as it looked. 

        There’s no doubt he’ll make a 100% recovery. He’s probably already 90% now.

      I believe Carmelo Anthony and Paul George will both be better than Jimmy Butler this year. I do believe Jimmy Butler will take another step this season and be more of an all around offense player. You can make a point that Jimmy Butler should be ranked higher due to the fact that he’s contributing on a more competitive team, plays both ends of the court, and is the lead dog on a top end playoff team. But, I just believe that Paul George will be better than ever and Carmelo Anthony returning to form to when he led the league in points per game.

     I don’t think the top 3 are really arguable, but Curry should be #4 and Kawhi is better than LaMarcus.
