In your opinion, who are the top 5 players in the NBA? Order/out of order,your choice. Going by everything they've shown THIS season and post season. Even if some made it further than others, who ya got?

My list:
Wade(a little bias but he's definitely up there)
LeBron(Hate to admit it <_<)
Dirk
DWight
and Im not suer on number five. Too many options

I'd say Rose, Durant, and Paul are right outside the top 5.


Lebron, Dirk, Rose, Kobe, Dwight

Rose over Wade?

Laughable.

To each his own, but before the playoffs started no one put Dirk in the top 5

Although I might put Dirk over Kobe at this point.

Well I said that everything they've shown in the reg and post season. And if you don't rank Dirk on your top 5 then you're just flat out biased. His playoff performance alone is too much. Its not newfound love, he just showed impressive games. Giving credit where its due.

Just because you copy what I said doesn't make your argument any more valid.

I'd like to hear your argument as to why Deron is even top 5. He isn't even a top 2 PG (Rose and Paul)

I know this isn't 2007. If it were, I'd have Kobe #1.

Even if his game has slowed from his peak, Kobe still has a far more valid case for top 5 than Deron does.

Deron on the other hand, has never been top 5.

Without Rose= bulls are 8th seed, lose in first round

there is a reason why he got voted MVP

According to what? His subpar postseason results? His lack of leadership? His willingness to get "CHOSEN 1" tatooed on his back and then run to Dwade in order to make an NBA finals?

Good player, great even.

Definitely not the best in the world.

Kobe just got swept from the playoffs.

So if we are ranking players right now, you can't just exclude Kobe's recent performance and at the same time completely ignore anything LeBron has done this postseason.

lol at Kobe fans. Shaq got Kobe 3 rings check the season/playoff numbers 1999-2002

With lebron cleveland 60 win seasons. Without lebron 19.

Kobe with loaded teams has failed and with scrub teams couldnt get out of the first round.

Honestly Kobe isnt on the same level as some of the young guys anymore. Its a compliment to even still be talking about him considering hes logged more mins than MJ at the age of 32. Hes going into his 15th year, while some of these young guys are entering their prime. Kobe in his prime was scoring 81, 5 games of 50 or more, averaging 30-35 points a season.

I don't know who is 4-5. I'd say any two of Durant, Dirk, and Kobe.

1-3 is easy because those are the only current NBA players who can dominate on both sides of the ball consistently in the playoffs. Rose will probably get there one day, but his 40% shooting in the postseason ain't going to cut it. Yeah he has no help, but he had more help than Wade had last year against the Celtics and Wade shot over 50%.
