@DWRIGHTWAY1 was actually ahead of RJeff on #NBArank, but then he pump-faked and they switched places.

@nbaonespn Dorell Wright isn't better than all those rookies (Ross, Lillard, Rivers, Sullinger, etc.). He was awful last year.

@nbaonespnleandrinho at 183 on #NBArank? has it really been that long since he was the best 6th man in the league? still a solid scorer

@nbaonespnCharlotte's best player from last season @ghjr09 #NBArank 184. Would be 50 higher if he developed a 3-point game

@nbaonespnAt this point Vince Carter is 99% man, 1% amazing, but still a solid off the bench guy now that the Mavs have Mayo.

@nbaonespnRip Hamilton could still be a top 100 player but his injuries last season really held him back. He'll step up, especially w/o Rose

Chicago Bulls | G | Age: 31
2011 rank: #129
@nbaonespnKirk Hinrich defies statistics, a solid ball handler who take very little off the table. Welcome back to Chicago

@nbaonespnAaron Brooks has proven a lackluster point guard but is an undersized scoring spark plug off the bench, a la JET. #NBArank decent

Eric Maynor is solid, but in the end he's a backup point guard coming off a season-ending injury. Should be much lower #NBARank

It's hard to believe that only 2 years ago Hedo carried Turkey to the FIBA World Championship Final! #NBARank

@nbaonespn Aside from Jamal Crawford, Kenyon Martin and Turkoglu back-to-back are the highest ranked players from the 2000 NBA draft. Ouch.

Kemba Walker would be Top 125 if A) he was being coached properly, and B) was on not-the-worst-team-ever.
— Jonn Leonard (@45Bananas) September 4, 2012
Kemba Walker > Tristan Thompson for now, but the Walker will flatline while Thompson should continue to improve
