Nene seems too high & too low. Few have his post game & efficiency, but he does not change games like Bogut & Chandler. #NBARankMon Oct 10 22:30:24 via Twitterrific




Joe Johnson
Atlanta Hawks | SG | Age: 30
Drafted: 10th in 2001 (by BOS)


Joe Johnson. The most anonymous five-time All-Star in history. #NBArankMon Oct 10 20:26:08 via web

Name a player ranked higher than 32 with a better truck than Joe Johnson. #nbarank http://t.co/fD25mgZIMon Oct 10 20:58:18 via TweetDeck




Andrew Bogut
Milw. Bucks | C | Age: 26
Drafted: 1st in 2005 (by MIL)


Andrew Bogut, who is an elite defender as a center, is a healthy elbow away from cracking the Top 25. #NBArankMon Oct 10 18:04:41 via web

As this was posted, he blocked 15 shots but wasn't on national television.Mon Oct 10 18:06:22 via TweetDeck




Andre Iguodala
Phila. 76ers | SG | Age: 27
Drafted: 9th in 2004 (by PHI)


#NBArank Andre Iguodala is only a consistent jumpshot away from being a top 20 player.Mon Oct 10 16:51:41 via web

Iggy's ranked 34th? I guess giving points, assists, boards AND D isn't good enough.Mon Oct 10 17:00:15 via web

Good thing Philly didn't try to make Andre Iguodala into the next Allen Iverson #NBArankMon Oct 10 17:15:25 via web

#NBArank 34: Andre Iguodala is good at a lot of thins, but not great at anything. I think this is too high for him.Mon Oct 10 16:10:20 via web




Ray Allen
Boston Celtics | SG | Age: 36
Drafted: 5th in 1996 (by MIL)


Ray Allen is a money shooter and deadly creating off curls, but adds little else at age 36. His #NBARank is a lifetime achievement award.Mon Oct 10 14:32:00 via TweetDeck

Ray Allen is number 35 because that's how many times his mom is shown each game. Family love at its finest. He's a good shooter, too.Mon Oct 10 15:38:31 via web

Ray Allen is still the best shooter in the NBA. His lack of play-making skills and defensive prowess make his #NBArank too high.Mon Oct 10 16:58:35 via web

5-on-5 debate: Rankings too high, too low or just right? ยป
