Nice .... fair enough where Moon's ranked and deservedly so.

1. Kevin Durant, Sonics (1)

4. Jamario Moon, Raptors (4)
5. Sean Williams, Nets (5)
6. Luis Scola, Rockets (6)
7. Daequan Cook, Heat (7)
8. Juan Carlos Navarro, Grizzlies (8)
9. Mike Conley, Grizzlies (NR)
10. Joakim Noah, Bulls (8)
He has a good point regarding hitting the "rookie wall" and that its less likely.

How the hell does Noah make ten? Because he got his name in the news?

Moon should be infront of Horford after tonight. Theres no question who has a bigger impact on the floor for their respective teams.

Nice to see Conley starting these past couple weeks, I've always liked his game since watching him at OSU. Very solid, very smart. Once he gets more freedom out there hes gonna be a terror for opposing teams to guard on the pick and rolls. Him and Lowry will be where our PG tandem is right now in a year and a half tops.

Yup, he's just been flat out horrible. My guess is the only reason why he snuck into the Top 10 this week was because he had his first NBA double-double this week and Thorpe.
