    Default 2012-2013 NBA Discussion thread

    Making the thread a bit early this year, but training camp is about to begin and I'm pumped. To hold us over, ESPN's player rankings are about to conclude with the last 10 (Not in any order from my end) Lebron, Durant, Rose, Paul, D. Williams, Love, Howard, Kobe, Westbrook, Wade. So how would you rank the final 10?

    You can insult, but you also must rank!

    By the way these rankings are bunk anyways. Dirk has a slightly worse year and drops from #5 to #11, Dwill hasn't been nearly as good in NJ as he was in Utah and only drops from 9 to 10.

    These idiots ranked Ricky Rubio ahead of Ty Lawson, which makes literally zero sense.

    Ranking systems are very subjective and therefore kind of useless...but I can say I find it funny that they have DRose on there...last I checked that guy had a major injury and shouldn't be on any list right now.

    I kind of figured the top 10 would be pretty damn bad, but Kobe being ahead of Wade and Westbrook is hilariously bad.

    Rose being ahead of Wade and Westbrook is just as bad, nobody has any idea how he will comeback from his blown out knee.

    It makes perfect sense. He's a better player and will only continue to get better

    Better at what? Passing the ball to Kevin Love? His 1.6 assists per game somehow make up for his 6 PPG disadvantage and 13% disadvantage in shooting % or his 5 points in PER?

    Lawson's assist to turnover ratio is better too.

    Lawson is a better player right now and has only had the shortened season as the starting PG. Just the fact that one can actually shoot a basketball is all the proof you need, shooting just over 35% is downright laughable for a NBA player.
