Kevin Love at 7 is the only surprise to me, and maybe with Rose at 5. Im not saying that he isnt top 5, but with him having that major injury makes me a little skeptical hippo until I see him play post-injury

Best PF in the league, proably should be between 7-10 someplace I would think.

Agreed, Rose is nice but they ranked him at 8 after his MVP year...how can he go up 3 spots after this past, injury-riddled season?

Out of all the flaws on their rankings, this is the one you choose to point out? Seriously?

How about the fact Ibaka is ahead of Amare Stoudemire? Or Kobe is BEHIND his teammate Howard. I read the whole top 100. The list is honestly very insulting to me as a basketball fan and really compromises the integrity of the writers responsible for such an awful list.

Carmelo Anthony at #17 is a fukking joke. Melo could have raped your mother and decapitated your father and you would still have to have him in your top 10.

Love, Westbrook and Williams in top 10 over him? I honestly don't see Griffin as a top 15 player. LOL @ Bosh being below him.

No one will ever take you seriously again after this quote. Might want to edit it before embarrassment ensues

Amare doesn't even belong in top 50 after his performance last season.

Melo has top 10 talent but barely top 15 IRL. He is kind of the Jay Cutler of the NBA. Maybe not quite that bad but you know what I mean.

TBH a Healthy Amare first half on the Knicks Amare should be placed over Ibaka but Post Melo trade Amare is not worthy of being put over Ibaka

What I mean is people seem not to like him and he's over rated.

Not as bad as Cutler though, not by a long shot.

Melo is undoubtedly a phenomenal talent and one of the best regular season performers...but he's been bounced out of the first round 8 of 9 times in his career. Since his acquisition, the Knicks have won 1 playoff game.

The franchise's first in a decade.

In 2011 vs Celtics he was playing w/ Amare & Chauncey both out, no one that was starting in that series other than Carmelo is on the Knicks atm
2012 Amare had a terrible year and was playing with a fragile back and took himself out of the series by punching glass, Tyson was playing with the flu, Shump blew his ACL, Lin/Baren Davids both out and they were up against Miami

Playoffs 9 years in a row

bounced out in the 1st round 8 times

Whether it's fair or not that is the reason he's placed where he is on the list.

Rose was just learning how to walk again a week ago, let's put him in top 5 then lol

not happy with Love being in top 10 (stat-wise he's in top 10 but actual player-impact wise he's not)

also I hate to say this but Rustled Westbrook had a better season than Wade (and I think, again I hate him, but he will be better than Wade in 12/13)

How do you think Durant is better than Lebron? Durant is a better shooter, but Bron can take it to the house. Bron is GOAT defense, Durant is All-Pro NBA Live defense

Because LeBron can never be the best player in the NBA.

I've come to realize that whether its Kobe or now Durant, there is a segment of the population who refuses to embrace LeBron as being the best player in the NBA and refuses to believe he's on a different level than everyone else.
