i'm actually surprised lebron was picked. i know his fourth quarter play is a little over done, but it's still a huge concern. i'd pick durant. i used to say dwight, but i don't like what he's doing in orlando.

Snooch 03-08-2012 08:15 PM

id put rose at number 1.

SomeDPlease 03-08-2012 08:28 PM

I'd probably put Rose or Paul at #1. With an edge for Paul.

More than a little overdone I'd say. For every clip of him failing in the 4th there's one of him dominating and leading his team to the win.

Only if Jeremy Lin isn't available.

i see durant dominating as well, and i don't ever see him afraid. :)

it's not like i wouldn't take lebron on my team, we just all have our preferences.

Durant doesn't defend anything close to how Lebron defends.

Rose listed 5th is crazy. I'd have him 2 and Durant 3.

I wouldn't even put griffin on that list or gordon

I'd put Griffin on there before Bynum, Gasol, Rondo, Rubio and yes Gordon.

if bynum was relatively healthy over his career than I would pick him over griffin but right now I would pick griffin over bynum too. Where is kevin love though? I would pick him way before griffin

edit just re-read your post

you would pick griffin over rondo? the hell lol and I fuckin hate rondo

LOG 03-08-2012 09:06 PM

1. Lebron (i think he is most dominant player at the moment at both ends of the floor even if he is not great in clutch)
2. Rose
3. Durant
4. Paul
5. Kobe
6. Nowitzki (yes i think he deserves to be here)
7. Deron
8. Howard

Brain fart...

1. Lebron. 2. Durant. 3. Rose

I'm kind of surprised that players like Gordon & Rubio are on there instead of Love. Rubio is 40 games into his career and Gordon has had injury issues.

RaptorsandBuckeye FaN 03-08-2012 09:10 PM

Irving should be on the list before Rubio & Gordon. Bynum higher also. Irving doing work in Cleveland. Perfect piece to build around.

right but same could be said about griffin he hasn't much more experience either, plus rubio plays a more significant role/position

I wouldn't. Its easier to build around a show, rather than a down and dirty kinda guy.

people who aren't putting lebron first, are you forgetting what cleveland was? their record, with that supporting cast, i'd put lebron first by a mile. Hell, 100000000000000 miles. he's special, now if only he could learn how to breathe in fourth quarters of the NBA finals.
