No Giannis? I don't know what position to put him at, but he's top 5 somewhere. BR had him at #1 for SG.

He's a small forward, i have him at number 6 right now but i think he can become number 4 next season.

I just had a PG discussion with a guy yesterday who told me Kyrie is the best point in The League. Kyrie, at best, is the #4 point--John Wall is a much better player. I'm not a Kyrie guy, to be honest; it's hard to be a fan of a guy who can't win. He couldn't win as a #1, he can't win when Lebron sits. He is a great player but he's not a true #1 and that's a definitive knock on him. If probably also place Paul still over him, so to me it's Kyrie, Thomas, and Lillard fighting it out for the #5 spot. Kyrie is good, but he's not a Top 3 point at all...

The only point guard better than John Wall is Curry. Wall is a better player than Westbrook. Wall is an outstanding player, and I can guarantee this would be a much bigger challemge for the Warriors if Cleveland had Wall instead of Kyrie. Wall is bigger, puts more pressure on the D (faster, more dynamic), is a MUCH better defender than Kyrie and could handle the task of Curry or Klay better. Wall's playmaking abilities is elite, and he'd be a tough cover for Golden State. About the only thing Kyrie does better than Wall is he's a more prolific scorer, but Wall wouldn't hold the ball, he'd move better off ball, and he'd be the perfect complement to either slowing down or playing Golden State's pace. With Kyrie, you take away his scoring and what can he give you? With Wall, he can score and is improved in that department, but if his shot ain't falling or you eliminate his ability to score, he can still impact the game in other areas...

John Wall is probably my second favorite player right now. I'd take him over Kyrie on any team and I hope he gets a ring before he retires...

Giannis is considered a stretch 4 on his team and is reminiscent if a young Kevin Durant. Going strictly by listed position on his team's depth chart, the only Power Forwards I'd list over him is Davis and Green, but he has an argument over both. Davis is good but has never lived up to the billing. Just two years ago everybody said he was a year away from being the best player in the game. Two seasons have passed, and it's debatable if he's even Top 10. He's the Andrew Luck of the NBA: great player who leads bad team, came your of college with high expectations, but is yet to hit those lofty expectations as it stands now...

Giannis A is listed as a small forward. I would put him over Blake in the power forward group.

I actually meant to do that - I have him at #4 which pushes Drummond out.
