    i usually dont make it out of the chargers forum, but i kinda follow the nba... my list...
    1) Allen Iverson
    2) LeBron
    3) Wade
    4) Tracy McGrady (when healthy)
    5) Carter/Kobe/Shaq

    -Shaq was downgraded due to his health and lack of effort in the regular season. Nash was bumped too bc of lack of scoring, and a good team. what do yall think?

    Tim Duncan has been a huge help in the Championships the Spurs have had.

    My opinion is he is always going to be on top of the list. Atleast a top 5 on the list.

    yea your right, duncan has his mvps i think... most would probably argue him over mcgrady. i just prefer skill players over players with a lot of value (ex. centers and such). plus i think shaq is better than duncan, at least when hes healthy and trying...

    I agree to a certain extent.

    McGrady is a beast out there on the court but the same can be said of Carmelo Anthony and Joe Johnson respectfully.

    If you were to have a list then it would have to have melo on it.

    Melo is just a scoring monster and can give the clutch basket when it comes down to the tenth of a second left on the clock.

    Melo and Duncan are on my list of top five.

    In no particlar order my list.

    Melo
    Duncan
    Nash (scoring is down but he is still gets double teams every game).
    AI
    Wade/Bell/Lewis
    Artest (just because of his defensive play)

    is that raja bell and rashard lewis? idk, raja can play defense and rashard can score, but im not sure about vice versa...i think lewis is a leader on the team in blocks in steals, but seattle isnt really known for their defense imo

    Like you I go for skill but I am also a person that likes a lot of DEFENSE from players that is Why I said:

    Artest
    Raja
    Lewis

    Defense that is hard to accoplish in a scoring on seconds at a time in a game. That takes skill to play Defense.

    I am also for game changers like Duncan, Nash, AI and Melo.

    That is just my opinion.

    yea i gotta give you props for bringin up melo. im very ashamed for forgetting about him, as he is currently leading the league in scoring (i thought iverson was). plus i was surrounded by cuse mania when i was livin in western ny about 4 years ago. but the nuggets dont get much publicity anyways for some reason...

    Do not worry about it.

    The reason Why I put Melo is that what a Scoring beast he is. Godzilla could not defeat him in scoring.

    The west Coast very rarly get any coverage from the East Coast.

    I always have to get East Coast news Hoops related from Friends who lives in Philly and he gives me all the scoop for the East Coast players and that is Why I like AI. King Kong Has nothing on AI.

    yes - one of the most efficient scorers and has improved his all around game.

    Top 2 in the league i think are Kobe and Dirk.
