    I think Love's got a legit cause to be considered better than Melo.

    He was monstrous last season. Don't think he had a cause to blame Minnesota for a losing season, mind you. Winners take it upon themselves.

    Bynum, on the other hand, is a great centre, but is yet to prove that he's a game winner. He'll get that chance away from Kobe, though, but another injury isn't exactly unlikely with this guy.

    Right now, I'd call Love and Melo on par, but Bynum, aside from the fact that he had some enormous games last season, is not there yet. Perhaps not even top 15.

    Love is the epitome of empty stats.

    I think Bynums right on that edge, against most teams he makes a big impact with his defense and offense. Carmelo hasnt consistently shown he can make a big impact on defense, i think he does really good at times in spurts. We'll see what he does next year but as of right now i see an argument for Bynum. At the same time Bynum really needs to focus harder mentally and not let weaker centers like McGee, Perkins and Ibaka get the better of him. He still has alotta potential even at this point, still hasnt reached his prime in my opinion.

    As for Love, I dont even know what to say about that dude. Hes a beast statistically and the Twolves proved they coulda been a playoff team if Rubio didnt get hurt. I hate him, he always sh*ts on us.

    Love is not better than Melo and Bynum is not even close. At this stage of his career Kobe is not better than Melo. Rose is not even gonna play next year so I don't think he should be on the list at all.

    Totally agree with you! He's a helluva fantasy basketball pick because he's a stat stuffer. His defense is sub par & he doesn't make anyone better on his team. The jury is still out on him whether he's an elite player.

    Wade not top5? Rondo at 14? Dirk is over Bynum/Love definitely.

    Melo, offensively, maybeeeeee at 10. Melo, defensively + offensively, I would say 18 or so.

    He`s the best offensive player in the league imo. Durant is debatable but I can`t put him in front of Melo until he develops a post game and plays more physical

    Wade's jumpshot fell off, where have you been?

    Rondo is the Celtic's best player, I hate the guy, but defensively he's the best PG in the NBA, and he leads the league in assist every year. Recently developed a mid range shot and he's a triple double threat. Don't be foolish.

    Dirk isn't the same player he was in his championship season. If he comes back to that form, then maybe. Dirk is a great shooter/scorer, one of the best in the history of the league, but he lacks in every other department. Bynum and Love are more well rounded and currently are better players.

    Melo is 10-15 for me.
