If you're including consistancy I don't see how you put Paul ahead of guy like Westbrook, Rondo, Nash, Bosh, etc. Seems like people always judge Paul by his best games only and ignore the rest. Probably because he only shows up to games that are televised. He just doesn't put the effort in vs the Wizards and Cavs of the league for me to include him in the top 15. Top 15 players respect the game and even Lebron you don't see him take the night off so to speak just because they are playing a bad team.

I wanted to put Westbrook but you're exactly right. Paul's best games automatically elevate to top 10 for me, its a shame I know.

but he's that good when playing with effort.

7. Dwyane Wade
8. Kevin Love
9. LaMarcus Aldridge
10. Blake Griffin


Just through those up quick without too much thought. I'd stick with Kobe at number one with thought. The way the guy is playing right now offensively AND defensively is just amazing.

This is an excellent list if you're factoring in Rose's injuries. I'm not a big Lebron fan but I have to admit he's always been pretty good for 3/4 of the regular season.

Default Re: Top 10 Players in the NBA Right Now

1. LeBron James
2. Kobe Bryant
3. Kevin Durant
4. Derrick Rose
5. Steve Nash (only reason most of you guys aren't including him is because he plays on a terrible team)
6. Dwight Howard (so many 20-20 games already! Damn!)
7. Dwyane Wade (came back from that injury strong)
8. Russell Westbrook
9. Kevin Love
10. Jeremy Lin


Maybe it's not fair to place Lin in the top 10, but he's been playing at a top 5 level. Only reason he's not higher than 10 is because he just started. If he can keep it up for a few more games, he'll easily surpass most of the guys on the top 10 list.

1. Lebron

4. Durant
5. Rose
6. CP3
7. Blake
8. Westbrook
9. Love
10. Wade

If Lin performs like he has been for an entire month, which would be impressive given the condensed season. I would definitely move him into a Top 10 player.... but only if he's able to keep up what he's been doing in the past 5 games. The dude has been that good.
