#1 LeBron James(He carried his team again last night and they needed the push from Mo Williams and Daniel Gibson. I have been watching the “Z Man”(Ilgauskas) off and on for nearly 15 years and this guy has been with the Cavs forever and he still contributes. How do you play “D” on Howard?????)
#2 Kobe Bryant(He is always there and if Lamar Odom can co-exsist with Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol then the Lakers can win it all. Bynum is the biggest head case on the team.)
#3 Dwight Howard(This guy is the up-and-coming superstar. He is built like a brick outhouse and when he gets deep in the lane the only thing that can stop him is the whistle.)
#4 Carmelo Anthony(He has the vertical shape, but to me does not have the power of James or Howard and his glide to bucket is not in the same neighborhood as Kobe’s.
*****The only difference in Kobe and LeBron is that Kobe is not as strong as LeBron and nobody is as strong as Dwight Howard, but he is still on the rise and probably will never possess the ball-handling skills of a Kobe or LeBron…..*****
