sure. we aren't talking trade value here though. otherwise obviously Nash is nowhere in the same 'tier' as Rose. Or Kidd and John Wall.
And even Calderon being in a higher 'tier' than Chalmers is hardly true in that case. I don't think Miami would give Chalmers for Calderon when you consider all those variables. Their on the court impact isn't far apart WHEN both are healthy, before you account for huge difference in health, age, salary.

I just think you need to make some compromises in order to get more people on board with however you're ranking these players.
fair enough. i simply don't think that getting a ranking more liked by fans (esp fans in a single team's forum) necessarily makes it better.
