Lebron

Howard (when healthy)

If I had to throw in one more to make 10, it would be Griffin.

I forgot Melo. My mistake. But Love? Dirk? Love isn't even an All-Star this season, much less a superstar. He has utterly stunk it up on the court. Cousins has a higher TS% than Love, for crying out loud. Dirk has also struggled, and given his age, it would be hardly surprising if he never goes back to a superstar again.

Good list, but WB's jumper needs to return. I would add Harden. I now believe it's doubtful he tails off late in the season. Wade is slipping but might still belong. His knack for efficiency serves him well.

Next year, Kyrie Irving should be on the list.

Oh, almost forgot. Definitely have to include Rudy Gay. Can't forget his stellar 18/6 on 41%.

Well yeah, I was thinking about Harden and he may be on that list, I have no problem with that.

With Westbrook, I don't care about his jumper which btw is improving. He has a missmatch every possesion on the court. You can't even say that about Durant. Westbrook is just so quick, fast that he has to be on that list. And hell, he is the most athletic guard in the NBA.

Irving? Love his game but he is too inconsistent at times and of course his team loses.

The word "superstar" gets thrown around way too easily. I would define superstar as an MVP-caliber player that has proven the ability to put a team on his shoulders and lead them to title contention. Love, Griffin and Harden are not on that level yet.

Super-Duper Stars:
LeBron James
Kevin Durant
Kobe Bryant

Superstars:
Chris Paul
Carmelo Anthony
Dwight Howard

Fading Superstars:
Dwyane Wade
Dirk Nowitzki
Tim Duncan

Injured Superstar:
Derrick Rose
