I can't wait for Kobe to say in an interview after scoring 45, "Not bad for being the 2nd best player on my team." #NBARank

Kevin Love is the best PF in the game in a pool of talented power forwards, he can score and also rebound like Rodman, amazing! #NBARank

Kevin Love is the only power forward in the top 10 of #NBArank. So long, Duncan-Garnett-Dirk era. It was a blast.

Russell Westbrook being top 10 in #NBARank is like seeing a villian triumph at the end of a movie.

#NBArank Russell Westbrook ahead of Deron Williams? Shows just how much team success can mean to a players ranking.

Russell Westbrook is the ultimate "win you the game or lose you the game" player, luckily for OKC, it's usually a win. #NBARank

At his best, I'd take Deron Williams over any point guard not named Chris Paul. 2 years ago he was arguably the best in the league #NBARank
