This year's too early to say and players will go through peaks and valleys.

The top 2 are clear. It's Lebron James and Kevin Durant, then everybody else.

But as of RIGHT NOW,

1) Lebron
2) Durant
3) Chris Paul
4) Tim Duncan
5) Kobe Bryant
6) Carmelo
7) Chris Bosh
8) Rondo
9) Westbrook
10) Harden

Too early in the season to say, we have to wait and see how a lot of things shake out.

Are we really comfortable dumping DWade out of the top 10 already? Maybe it's just a slump.

KLove was seeming like a top 10 player but got hurt. Maybe he'll get back there soon.

Melo is GOING TO fall off. He's not a top 10 guy, I don't care what anybody says. He's a low level all star, not a superstar.

Leaving Dwight out of the top 10? If you look at team records and his stats you might, but I don't buy it. Once his back gets right he'll be a top 5 guy again.

You think you know Melo well enough that he can't evolve?
Give him a chance
Top 10 does not matter ... I think he will be close

1. Lebron
2. Durant
3. Chris Paul
4. Kobe
5. Dwight Howard
6. Russell Westbrook
7. Carmelo
8. Harden
9. Tim Duncan
10. Andre Iggy

As of right now. I like igodula cause he's physical, fast, athletic and can shoot. He's been doing well for Denver and he's made improvements to his game. That's why he's my #10. I dont like rondo, so this is my own biased list

Denver is a very interesting team. I absolutely love the iggy/galinari combo. They really need to get a low post presence to really set this team off.

Pau would do wonders for this team. Pau/Iggy and Gallo with faried as the rebounding workhorse, would be VERY interesting.

2. Kevin Durant
3. Dwight Howard
4. Chris Paul
5. Kobe Bryant
6. Kevin Love
7. Dwyane Wade
8. Russell Westbrook
9. Deron Williams
10. Rajon Rondo

I think Rose would definitely be a top 10 player but, alas, his injury occurred and I fear he will go the way of Penny Hardaway. Hopefully I'm wrong.

But perhaps Daryl Morey’s greatest move was when Daryl Morey locked up Daryl Morey to a long-term extension before Daryl Morey got Dwight Howard. Typical buy low Daryl Morey move and now Daryl Morey is stuck on a below market deal.

Anderson Varejao, CLE
Chris Paul, LAC
Carmelo Anthony, NY
Russell Westbrook, OKC
Dwight Howard, LAL
Chris Bosh, MIA
Goran Dragic, PHX
James Harden, HOU
Brook Lopez, BKN
Al Jefferson, UTAH
Kenneth Faried, DEN

#5 in scoring
#2/3 in assists by non-PG(behind Lebron and if you count him, Hinrich)
#2 in FT attempts
7-8 record as the only star on the youngest team in the NBA and without training camp.

By any traditional measure, he has as good a case as anyone for being top-10. Players definitely better than him, in no particular order: Lebron, Durant, Howard, CP3, Bosh, Melo, Kobe, Duncan, and maybe Westbrook for those who ignore Westbrook's crappy shooting. Anyone else, I'd take Harden over him even if it's just for this season.
