KG shunned from top 30

They have John Wall ranked above him even though rondo's a better defender, rebounder, passer, more triple doubles, more efficient FG%, and has done more in the playoffs.

  • You ain't the boss of the freakin' bedclothes.
John Wall is peaking, its an over-reaction.

Just like they rank Kevin Love and Derrick Rose behind Rondo, overreactions. You could say, "Well what about Rose/Love's injury", but then it is literally the same thing with Rondo.

These rankings are pretty much hogwash anyways.

Are you sure Garnett was snubbed? I was assuming that he made the top 15

Reading the reactions to Rose's rank is disturbing. "Come on, he was the MVP!" say people who have forgotten that his MVP award was a travesty.

Isn't the list for this season? If so while I like Derrick, he should not be on the list especially since he played 0 games this season. I don't care if he was MVP in the past, he shouldn't be on there if he hasn't played a game this season.
Rondo at least had some games before he went down to even be on it.

Meh, I don't pay much attention to it. Rondo and Rose are ranked too low, probably due to injuries, and Wall is only ranked that high due to his play in the last month or so. Definitely overrated at the point in time.

It's kind of hard to rate a guy who hasn't played for a few months, but okay.

Actually, these aren't the this-season rankings, the overall rankings, or even the future rankings. These are just pointless rankings. Kyrie Irving clocked in at 12.

If defense counted for anything, I'm not even sure Kyrie Irving would be the twelfth best point guard in the league this year.

OMG it's my 1o0th tommy point. I'm overcome with emotion. I'm welling up. I'm happy but I'm sad but mostly happy.

Yeah they didn't want to give it to LeBron.  The only way LeBron lost and will lose for the next few years is if people get tired of voting for him.  MVP awards are mostly crap anyways.

Speaking of crap, these rankings!  ESPN... yuck.
