    You would have Steph above Harden after last year's playoffs?

    When it comes to winning, I would take CP3 over Irving or Lillard without hesitation.

    I'm very surprised Kawhi is making everybody's list. We only saw him play in 8 games last season and he looked bad. What if he never returns to form? I'd like to see him play a healthy season and return to form before I put him back in the top 10. I'm also taking Chris Paul over guys like Irving and Lilliard because he doesn't give up a whole lot to them offensively but he's an elite defender and those guys are defensive sieves. Same for Butler.

    1. Lebron James
    2. Kevin Durant
    3. James Harden
    4. Steph Curry
    5. Anthony Davis
    6. Giannis Antetokounmpo
    7. Russell Westbrook
    8. Joel Embiid
    9. Chris Paul
    10. Jimmy Butler

    lol so many ppl having durant over the beard when the beard is the best...perhaps only lebron is on the beards level..

    being finals MVP doesnt mean a thing when you needed refs and other 4 allstars to get there

    I think Oladipo has to be in the conversation for those last few spots in the Top 10. Complete two-way player. Extremely clutch too. I'd definitely take him over the likes of Lillard, Irving or DeRozan and it's not even close. Maybe it's just me, but in order to be a top10 player without being a two-way player you really need to be an all-time great offensive player like Harden. For example, Irving is extremely flashy and is a good finisher, but he's definitely not in the same tier as The Beard.

    Tier 1 Superstars
    - 1. LeBron
    - 2. KD
    - 3. Harden
    - 4. Steph Curry

    Tier 2
    - 5. Anthony Davis
    - 6. Kawhi
    - 7. Giannis
    - 8. Westbrook

    Tier 3
    - 9. CP3
    - 10. Kyrie
    - Embiid
    - Lillard
    - Paul George

    I tried to break it up into tiers...I think Embiid/Lillard/Paul George could be argued into the top 10 depending on what you value.

    I just don’t get rating Westbrook as a top 10 guy after the years of evidence that he brings guys around him down. Don’t think Irving or Lillard deserve top 10 consideration either.

    I don't either. The guy is entertaining to watch and obviously leaves everything on the court. That does not mean though that he could lead a team over a great one while making his teammates better.
