Lance is no way second best but would be nice to see him get there. Hard to believe sg is that weak, but... All the studs are sf these days.

Excluding old and injured Wade and Kobe, one could make a STRONG argument for Lance being the 2nd best SG. 

 

Anyone that disagrees please list your top 5. Guarantee you Lance will be a better ball handler, passer, rebounder, defender, etc. etc.

Zero problem with Al and Lance being in the Top 5 of their respective positions. Center is top heavy, SG is weak in general. Kemba unfortunately is playing at a time when there's a ridiculous amount of good to great PGs in the league, so he's outside the Top 10 even IMO. 

 

Now, if we can just find a SF and/or PF who could even be considered Top 5-10 in the league

Honestly, you could make the argument for Lance to be number 1, James Harden doesn't play a lick of defense. Again, this shows how weak the 2 guard position is.

Punctuation and verbage were lol worthy. Lol. But I agree with all besides the first Red homer alert. I'd slide him down 1 or spots right now.

When you can score like Harden can no one cares about the D. 

 

He is gonna outscore the opposing SG every night.

(2) Klay Thompson
(3) Lance Stephenson
(4) Demar DeRozan
(5) Monta Ellis

SF:
(1) Lebron James
(2) Kevin Durant

You guys are killing me here.

LS second best SG in the league. Kemba in top ten. MKG going to be dynamic once he learns to shoot.

All good players. All vastly overrated by Hornets fans.

Lance was at least the 3rd best SG last year. He could really solidify himself as the 2nd best SG this upcoming season by being in a bigger role. Al is def the 2nd best Center.


Now, I agree with you on Kemba and MKG. Kemba is no where close to be in the top10. I think he's probably the 15th and that's really me just being nice. Kemba is the most overrated player in CLT.

MKG could be better if he ever develop a jumper, but that's "better", not great. Again, he's another overrated player by homers. His defense is solid right now but fans are acting like hes Kawhi Leonard good. No, no, no.

PG:
(1) Chris Paul
(2) John Wall- might be #1 if he keeps improving. 
(3) Stephen Curry
(4) Russell Westbrook
(5) Tony Parker

 

PG position is DEEP- tough to leave off Lillard, Lowry, and Lawson (who was quietly spectacular last year in Denver)

 

SG:
(1) James Harden
(2) Klay Thompson
(3) Goran Dragic- defended SGs for PHX in their 2 PG lineup, so I'm gonna cheat and put him here
(4) Monta Ellis
(5) Lance Stephenson/ Demar Derozan- Derozan was better last year, but I think Lance surpasses him this year

SF:
(1) Lebron James
(2) Kevin Durant
(3) Carmelo Anthony
(4) Paul George
(5) Kawhi Leonard

PF:
(1) LaMarcus Aldridge
(2) Blake Griffin
(3) Kevin Love
(4) Anthony Davis- hard to place him.  May be #1 next season
(5) Dirk Nowitzki

C:
(1) Dwight Howard
(2) Joakim Noah
(3) Marc Gasol- passing and defense gives him a slight edge over Big Al (though Big Al is a much better fit for CHA)
(4) Al Jefferson
(5) DeMarcus Cousins

Lance is better in every aspect of the game over Klay with the exception of shooting. 

 

Lance is better than Derozan in every aspect of the game besides athleticism.

Is this As of right now or as of last year? I know Paul George is probably a top 5 SF. What about Kevin Martin as a top 5 sf? Deng could be a top 5 sf it all depends on health. Chris bosh is a top 5 PF or center which ever position you chose and Wade has still been a top 5 SG despite injuries. Monte Ellis and Dirk could be on the list and so could Al Horford.


I don't see no love for Rondo. He is top pg. Conley could be on the list as well. Pg is deep and it depends on your preference, do you want a scorer or playmaker pg?

Also no love for Gortat as top center ?

I don't see Beal or Waiters as top 5 SG as of yet.

Both Gasols are top 5 in my opinion.

Also what about Drew Bledsoe?
