PG:

1.Chris Paul- he will start to be labeled as a player that never accomplished anything if he doesn't do something in the next 2 years or so.

2.Tony Parker- and at the other end of the spectrum^^^

3.Russell Westbrook- is he really a PG? well that's what he is labeled and he's probably in the Top 5 in the league so he better be in the Top 5 PGs

4.Steph Curry- he could be #1 if he leads them to the WCF or NBA Finals

5.Damian Lillard- the force is strong with this one. Sky is the limit.

 

Honorable mention: D.Rose's injuries have kept him off the list. He has to prove he can play more than a handful of games to crack the Top 5.

 

SG:

1.James Harden- defense is atrocious, but man can he fill it up.

2.Lance Stephenson- CODE RED 'HOMER' ALERT - but is it..?? ...IS IT!?!

3.Klay Thompson- doesn't hurt when you play opposite Steph but hey, he still can ball

4.DeMar DeRozen- have the Raptors ever won a playoff series with DeRozen?

5.Bradley Beal- see Lillard^^

 

Honorable mention: Kobe & D.Wade are the vets that will go down in the Top 5 SGs of alltime, but not for what they do in 2014-15.

 

SF:

1.LeBron James- GOAT SF???

2.Kevin Durrant- NBA MVP

3.Carmelo Anthony- I couldn't put the next 2 above him. And you couldn't either. Try, I dare you!!!

4.Kahwi Leonard- see Lillard and Beal^^^

5.Paul George- would have been #3 if it wasn't for the 2nd half of the season.. and playoff run..

 

Honorable mention: Gordon Hayward & Loul Deng suffered from down years last year. Look for them both to bounce back this year.

 

PF:

1.LaMarcus Aldridge- The Top 3 at this position change on a nightly basis.

2.Blake Griffin- The Top 3 at this position change on a nightly basis.

3.Kevin Love- The Top 3 at this position change on a nightly basis.

4.Anthony Davis- see Lillard, Beal and Kahwi^^^^

5.Chris Bosh- I wanted to put Dirk/Ibaka in here, but Bosh's all around game kept him in.

 

Honorable mention: Dirk, Duncan & Ibaka don't make it because the first 2 players are in the twilight of their careers and Ibaka's offense couldn't put him over the top.

 

C:

1.Dwight Howard- Don't you wish he didn't Always automatically get the top spot..? Me too..

2.Al Jefferson- CODE RED 'HOMER' ALERT - but is it..?? ...IS IT!?!

3.Joakim Noah- playing along Pau Gasol might make his game even better.. possible?

4.Marc Gasol- no one wants to bang with this pear-shaped bruiser.

5.DeMacus Cousins- see Lillard, Beal, Kahwi and Davis^^^^^^

 

Honorable mention: Brook Lopez & Drummond are both great, but Lopez has been hurt and Drummond needs another year of work to make the Top 5 cut.

 

Dishonorable mention: Roy Hibbert

So the hornets have two of the premier players at their respective positions in the league?

Yeah, offseason optimism is still alive and well.

Al Jefferson definitely is top 5. No homerism in that.

I mean, they do. Maybe not where he has them ranked but Al is a top 3 center and Lance is near the top among SGs

SG position is probably the weakest in the league. 

 

Lance is def a top 5 SG when you talk about a complete game. I think after this season as a main option this wont even me a question.

We definitely have 2 of the top 5 players at their position, it's hard to argue against it. It just happens to be at the 2 weakest positions in the league.

Good list, BP.

 

If you expanded it to a  top 10 at each position, Kemba would surely be in there.

Bosh is a natural 4 but he has been playing the 5. Drop Gasol for him in that top 5 then replace Bosh's vacated spot with Timmay.
