wow, no marbury on any of these lists(except IMX whos alwyas backing marbury, nice work my friend) you can say what you want about marbury but you cannot deny how good he is, its basically kidd at the top and payton this year(although i think he falls below the group of young points thats coming up next year) it goes kidd then payton if hes good and then i dont think you can make any real good argument that out of francis, miller, davis and marbury, hell, maybe even nash and bibby(if he can do it in the regular season) as the top player all their stats basically cancel each other out, francis doesnt get as many assists but hes the best scorer and rebounder, davis can score and pass it, but so can marbury(and dont give me davis has taken a team to the playoffs, cause he has alot more help then marbury, especially up front) miller isnt the scorer as francis davis or marbury, but he lead the league in assists, bibbby and nash are both excellent scorers and passers but play on consideraly more loaded teams then the other 4 and dont have to carry as much of the load so you can definitely make a case for them in that group, so thats really 6 good young point guards(all 28 or under correct?) who all could be the best in the league some day but id put my money on them all vying for the title for some while(although kidd still has quite a few years left no doubt).
also does anyone think stockton will have a resurgent year next year?? he played brilliantly against sacramento, showing there is still noone who can control a game like him, and last year he shot something like 52% from the floor, i expect him to go out in a big way compared to the last couple of years.
Baron Davis is a bit overrated. I mean, he put up 18 and 8. While Dre put up 16 and 11. That's not that big of a scoring dip.
I agree that Marbury gets bashed alot. He is not as good as Kidd, but he is not horrible. Kenyon Martin, Kerry Kittles, Keith Van horn were all injured throughout the season while he was in Jersey. Then he goes to a team that won 50 games, but had to get rid of a lot of quality and started rebuilding. So it is not fair the criticism that he takes.
Kidd's D alone CRUSHES Dre-Mill's all-around game,thats why Kidd is BETTER!Also Kidd,Francis,Payton,Nash,Terry,Starbury,B-Davis,Bibby and Cassell ALL have HEART!Which is something Dre DOESNT have an ounce of,thats why they are ALL better then him!
All the people that think Dre is gonna lead the Clipps to the playoffs are OUT OF THERE MINDS!He ISNT a leader now,nor will he ever be!Why u ask?Cuz hes got NO F'n HEART!
