Offseason Boredom: Top 20 edition



So being that it's the OFFseason, I've been doing some idle basketball speculation.  Most recently, I've been trying to come up with a list of the Top 20 most valuable players (as in current + potential future value) in the NBA.  I've found that it's pretty much ridiculously difficult.  I mean, to me, it seems that there are 11 players that would be on almost everyone's list even if they're not necessarily the top 11.  They are (in no particular order):

  1. Kobe
  2. Lebron
  3. Chris Paul
  4. Dwight Howard
  5. Kevin Garnett
  6. Tim Duncan
  7. Kevin Durant
  8. Brandon Roy
  9. Chris Bosh
  10. Dwyane Wade
  11. Derrick Rose

After these eleven though, I get pretty lost.  I mean, there's a number of candidates but that's why it's so hard to choose. They're not really that distinct. So I guess my question is if you had to choose the 10 most valuable players excluding the above eleven players, which players would you pick? Warning: it's much harder than picking the top 11.

My list looks like (once again in no particular order):

  1. Danny Granger
  2. Tony Parker
  3. Blake Griffin
  4. Manu Ginobili
  5. Amare
  6. Pau Gasol
  7. Andre Iguodala
  8. Rajon Rondo
  9. Al Horford
  10. Gerald Wallace

I know you can certainly disagree with some of those picks or the exclusion of others, and I'm not even sure that I agree with myself.  But it's hard, you know?

Anyone else want to try? It's a great way to kill time and make you look up stats for no reason.
