The top 10 NBA players for this next year will be the following:
10- Carmello Anthony
Very hard to guard and so talented yet he’s one of those guys that the team just seems impossible to win a title with. (yes I remember Syracuse). Carmello will be very good as always and be in the top 3 in scoring but his team will fizzle out as usual.
9- James Harden
I think Dwight will change a lot of what Harden does and honestly might hold him back a little. Then again with Harden’s driving skills he might average 10 assists just to Dwight a game.
8- Chris Paul
Wait Chris Paul at 8? But the Clippers are going to compete for the title this year! Wrong, not happening and CP3 won’t take them there.
7- Deron Williams
Deron at the first half of last season wasn’t even in the top 100 of NBA players and then he remembered how to play and played as well as anyone after the all-star break. With a solid cast this year D Will has the keys to take them over Miami and into the Finals.
6- Russell Westbrook
Awful way to end last season and this year he will be mad. I just hope OKC destroys Houston in every game cause I am not a fan of Dwight or of that dumb play by Beverly.
5- Steph Curry
Wow did he come on strong in the playoffs! That measly contract he signed will allow Warriors to compete in the West for years to come. Best shooter to ever play the game possibly.
4- Derrick Rose
Adrian Peterson will have a follower this next season as D Rose will take his game to a new level after missing all of last season. Watch out Miami cause a 3-peat will be very difficult with Indiana, Chicago and Brooklyn in the way not to mention the West.
3- Kevin Durant
Wait KD at 3? KD is phenomenal but every year he just can’t quite get there. Is this year any different? Absolutely not, letting go of Harden killed their title hopes in my opinion.
2- Lebron James
The best player in the world right now is number 2? Yes in fact he will be. He will play out of his mind again but so did MJ in losing two MVP’s to Karl Malone. Oh and the Heat will not 3-peat… did I mention that already?
1- Kyrie Irving
Bold? Stupid? Not going to happen? We’ll see, bt everything I’ve seen of Kyrie in the past year makes me think if he’s healthy he will put up ridiculous numbers and make Cleveland a threat as well. MVP, MVP, MVP!
