My Overall Top 10 in the NBA right now:

1 - LeBron James
2a - Stephen Curry
2b - Kevin Durant
4 - Russell Westbrook
5 - Kawhi Leonard
6 - James Harden
7 - Chris Paul
8 - Paul George
9 - Anthony Davis
10 - DeMarcus Cousins

11 through 25 - The other 15 guys out there who have a legitimate top 10 argument.

2) All of the other busters.

I think there would be a pretty good consensus on who the top six are, just not in which order. Here they are in alphabetical order.


Curry
Durant
Harden
James
Leonard
Westbrook


But 7 through 10 I think would be up for debate. There are a bunch of guys such as Towns, Butler, Antetokounmpo, Davis, Chris Paul, Kyrie, Klay Thompson, and others, for whom a case could be made to put as 7 thru 10.

Only 2 games in but Griffin is averaging 29/10/4...if he keeps it up maybe the TNT crew are right that he could finish top 3 in MVP voting.

It’ll be interesting to see how the Clippers do without Paul...perhaps Beverly isn’t that much of a downgrade?

He's definitely an upgrade on defense, and I doubt will be as much of a whiner (i.e. makes for a better leader). With Blake the question is always his health and mental fortitude.

This is mostly based on last year, since we're just 9 days into the new season. As the season goes along injuries are gonna play a huge role in shaping this, already has:

1. LeBron
(small gap)
2. Durant
(small gap)
3. Curry
4. Kawhi
5. Westbrook
6. Harden
(small gap)
7.Giannis
8. Davis
9. Wall
10. Kyrie
(small gap)
11. Green
12. George
13. Paul
14. Griffin
15. Klay
(sizable gap)
16. Butler
17. Conley
18. Thomas
19. Hayward
20. DeRozan

This Top 20 is going to have a major shakeup by even New Years because Kawhi, Paul, Thomas, and Hayward are all missing considerable time, and within a few months we'll see whose maintained elite play...

Sidenote: I was listening to Broussard yesterday on FS1 talk about how the game is undergoing a cultural shift to a more suburban style and following. Basketball was a "street" sport by the 70s, the majority of the biggest stars came from hard luck backgrounds, and that street essence peaked in the late-90s/early-00s and lasted until maybe a few years ago...

Now, if you look at the Top 20 players in the game, the only guys who come from rough backgrounds are Lebron, Wall, Green, Butler, and DeRozan. The stars are becoming more relatable to the larger American conscious that is suburban, middle class, multiracial, etc. I guess you can count Durant if you want but he's really soft for a guy who grew up where he did with a single mother...

Just thought that would be interesting to note!
