Curry isn't the 6th best player in the NBA

I personally think Steph Curry is a little too high.

One of these guys doesn't belong, and it's not because he's white

NBA.com polled all of the NBA GM's about a bunch of stuff in the NBA and one of the questions was "who excels despite their lack of natural ability"...............all white guys.

James Harden is a little too high. He relies on the refs way too much, and that was evident watching last year's series vs the Thunder. And you add in his questionable defense..

IMO he is in the 7-10 range.

..and lets not forget the epic choke he had in the finals.

This list is a joke.

Slams Top 50 is much more legit IMO.

I guess their justification is that the addition of Dwight will help spread the floor a bit for him, but yeah 4 seems a bit too high.

I'm a huge fan of Harden/Kyrie but they are way too high. Curry is completely reactionary as well.

It's the weakest position in the NBA so it shouldn't matter. Wade is still better when he is healthy, but I'd rank Harden over him.

If I had to draft my 1st guy on a team to play 1 season this year, i'd take DWade over 4 or 5 of those guys.

Howard isn't overrated at all IMO.

Gasol is a bit high, as well as Curry.

Rest of the list isn't bad unless there's a guy I'm forgetting about.
