To the casual fans Kobe was a top 3 player of all time two or three years ago in an ESPN poll. No, really. After ring #5 they ran this poll and Kobe was behind Jordan and Magic. I think he would be down at #5 on that list now if the poll was to be taken tomorrow, but I actually think the casual fan has LeBron as #1 and Kobe as #2 in the NBA today.

1) LeBron
2) Durant
3) Kobe
4) Wade
5) Melo
6) Paul

They did an ok job, outside Kobe in Top 5 and Parker further than Duncan, and Melo behind Harden/Kobe/Parker.

Everyone is going to judge ESPN on their own opinions. That doesn't make much sense after one has seen enough such lists. It's far more interesting to me to think about whether the list is a 'good one' for the general audiance or a good one for ESPN itself.

A list is good for the general audience if the end result reflects a hypothetical poll taken by 'everyone' who reads the lists. A list is good for ESPN if it creates controversy among the fanbase, because controversy sells. But how much controversy? By no means huge, because they have to remain 'experts' in the eyes of the general public.

A think ESPN does a good job if at the end of the day we say: well, this is an OK list, I'd give it 8 points on a scale of 10. That's a lot better than 9 or 10. A messge board is no message board if everyone agrees. The same is trus for such lists.

Generally accepted facts are not much fun to have a discussion of.

yep

if every poster here did a top-30 list, not too many of them would be the exact same

for them to make a list that even 50% of people here agree with is mathematically impossible

it can only create controversy, no matter how the list reads

Can't be mad with Wade at @ #6. Would be higher if he had a bigger role, but still a solid placing. I personally think he should be top 5, but Kobe's been on a tear all season despite the mediocrity of his teammates, 'Bron and Durant are absolute monsters, along with CP3 just owning. The last one Westbrook I feel should be switched with Wade, however Westbrook has been great this year, averaging what, 23ppg and 8asts? The dude's a stud either way.
