    1-3 and 4-5 are interchangeable. After that it gets kind of tough to really slot players because in most cases they have different skill sets. For instance: CP3 is VERY productive and is big part of NOs success but Howard does the same thing for ORL.

    They both get it done in different ways. Blocks vs Steals, Rebounds vs Assists... points cancel each other out.

    IMO G Wallce is better than J Johnson. I'd give GW the edge simply because he can shut you down defensively. I'd also put Gasol above Bosh because he's a better defender and rebounder. They can both score about the same.

    If Lee puts up ~20-10+ and a block n steal a game, at elite efficiency, and at his best position, will people still say he's so overrated? It's a big if, I suppose, but it'd be interesting to see.

    Aldrige and Bogut don't have Lee's numbers from last season..

    And Lee isn't as good as Tim Duncan. Doesn't mean that he shouldn't be in a top20 discussion, if you're basing it off the assumption of him replicating last year, or just basing it off last years' performance. Which I assume Paul and a lot of people are working under.

    You are also comparing him to arguably the greatest PF of all-time, known for his otherworldy defense and intangibles. A rare player, with rare skills, who's game transcends box lines in a way that most don't.

    And it's not TOO laughable or remote a concept that Randolph would be a top20 discussion type player, anyways. He has elite skills, and if he had the mentality and mindset to replicate seasons like he just had, I don't see why he wouldn't be hovering around ~20.

    Zach obviously isn't, but its just as much due to his inconsistency and dumb personality. Even with his flaws, if he duplicated seasons like last years, and one or two others' he has had through his career, he'd be right in the discussion, as well.

    I also don't think Lee is top20. But he's pretty close, and he's not too far off from being able to cement himself firmly in that upper range.

    Factor in his age and durability, and that gives him a boost in overall "franchise"-like rankings, "who'd you rather have now and for the next 5 years you run a team".

    N8 (WunderDirk) is a great player, but he will never win anything as a leader..i see him as a Pippen style of player, a super n2 to a Superstar.

    N18 (Scola) some of you will laugh at this, but i feel he is the most underrated player in the league...i would love to have him in my team, even in a pickup game, 100% hustler, good hands, IQ, pity that our Lord did not give him 5 more inches...he would have been a heck of a player at 6'11 or 7'.....

    Why are you even posting or making threads? Your list should get you banned from this site.

    Dwight Howard is the best defensive and rebounding big man in the NBA, along with his 20 ppg and his unlimited potential. He's in my top 3.

    LeBron and Wade are better than Kobe right now. Wade/LeBron are entering their prime. Kobe is leaving his prime.

    Carmelo Anthony is a great scorer, nothing else.

    and anyone who puts Bosh and Amare over Pau and Tim are morons who don't know about two way basketball. Gasol and Duncan are high IQ players offensively and defensively, where as Bosh and Amare are just scoring big men.

    Westbrook is better than Rose right now.

    Luis Scola isn't better than Al Horford David Lee or Zach Randolph....he shouldn't even be in the top 30.

    Lee was a throw in but his offensive game and rebounding is amazing. His defense sucks but he has played with bad Knick teams. I think he is vastly under rated.
