Default Re: ESPN top 30 rankings

DAAAMN ESPN moved Westbrook, into Top 5? They were/are his biggest haters. Guess they are not nearly as blind and bashful as I thought.

But cmon when you take all around game, defense and team record into account, Paul and Kobe have no case over Wade. One guy missed 12 games on top of getting torched by every elite PG he faced and losing to every playoff rival past few months. The other is fighting for an 8th seed with that roster while giving 0 effort defensively.

But I guess their reputation is worth more than actual performance and wins, watch Kobe and Paul get 1st team All NBA and All defense again.

It was expected. They had him at 17 in the preseason. It's widely known ESPN is biased against NY teams.

Anthony and Duncan, should be higher IMO.

I'd say Westbrook has been better than Wade for the last 2 seasons now.

I expect this too.

Watch Westbrook actually be #2, instead.

Let's try something different. ESPN wants to be original and tell us how wrong they were, so they will go:

1. James
2. Kobe
3. Durant
4. Westbrook
5. Paul

They can push the Durant vs. Westbrook agenda (whose team is OKC) and the Kobe is back (he has never been away) agenda this way.

I love Westbrook but whoever puts him above Paul is crazy. And Kobe above Paul, Durant, Westbrook when he is fighting for 8th seed is beyond insane.

5) Kobe
4) Paul
3) Durant
2) LeBron
1) Westbrook

Is the obvious answer.

Hey, it's not my opinion. It's just a scenario I can see happening. It's great for pushing agendas and selling some advertising time later on discussing 'the validity' of their own opinions, with so-called experts taking sides, etc.

Not even ESPN is that crazy, but then again if the Kobestan army on this forum is any indication, Kobe at #2 wouldn't be crazy to the majority aka casual fans.
