Wait..... Are the players listed in order from best to worst? If so, how can you possibly justify having Derrick Rose over Russell Westbrook? Decent thread subject, but that really threw me off and definitely inhibits this threads potential.

That is a pretty impressive list, at it's still early in their respective careers, but I don't see any top 10-20 players in that list. I do think Durant has a chance to make the coveted top 20 all-time list, though.
