    Rondo is the a product of the system where you have a freakishly athletic point guard with freakishly long arm and a vision and creativity with the ball that few can match.

    Knock him for not being a shooter/scorer and I'd agree, but product of the system? No other player in the league has his skillset.

    Jajajajajajajaja 3 time first team defense and a career average of 7 assists, says otherwise. And you try to make it sound like he's not even good at scoring, please kid, sit down, the guy has a career scoring average of 28 a game. Deuce is a masochist. :)


    And I wonder... where exactly do you rank Lebron in your top players? This should be fun.

    Top players? He's around 3 or 4.

    He is good at scoring. His scoring only consists of cherry-picking dunks, layups, and free-throws though.

    Most of which come after he has picked the ball up, taken 5 steps, charging like he's Brandon Jones.

    Kevin Durant would be numero uno, of course.

    Durant.
    Kobe.
    D-Wade.
    Rose.
    Dwight.
    Lebron.


    But Dwight, Rose, and Lebron are all a close 4 there.

    And yeah, I know Kobe is old and not as athletically gifted as Lebron.

    But he's harder to defend than Lebron. Close the lane and Lebron is useless. Kobe can score from anywhere within half-court. Plus, he's got the killer instinct that Lebron lacks. Wade has the same killer instinct. So does Carmelo and Durant. He looks like he's even improved his passing. And... you can't argue with his jewelry. 5 rings beats Lebron's 0 automatically... Champs count.

    1. LeBron - A tiny notch above Durant because he defers to Wade for late game heroics, but Durant's playmaking and defense doesn't come close. Most dominant player in the game right now, like Shaq who would defer to Kobe for late game heroics.

    2. Durant
    3. Wade
    4. Kobe.
    5. Rose
