NBA's top players for every position in 2009-2010

2009-2010 Top Players

Point Guards

1. Chris Paul- Best scorer/passer/dribble in the league. Expect another huge season from young Paul.
2. Deron Williams- Always impresses me, always has everyone involve and still gets his 20 points
3. Chauncey Billups- I know hes high on my list, but for a reason, nick name Mr. Big Shot, one of the best defenders, great shooter, great passer, and great leadership. Still can play at 32, just a flat out winner anywhere he goes.
4. Tony Parker- A proven veteran, a lot of pressure was on him because a lot of injuries with Spurs, and he came though in a big way with averaging 22 points.
5. Devin Harris- Very close to Tony Parker's numbers, great young talent, Nets got a steal
6. Steve Nash- He did have a down year last year, but still averaged close to 16 points and 10 assist. Still has great leadership and great things happen when hes on the court.
7. Nate Robinson- Had a break out year last season. Lets see if he can keep it up.
8. Jason Terry- Great shooter, should be the starter for next season, should have another good year.
9. Rajon Rondo- Great passer, still on the Celtics, so should have a better season with more experience.
10. Baron Davis- Still can play, with Blake Griffin, should have a solid season.

Shooting Guards

1. Kobe Bryant- Maybe slowing down a little, but can still play at a high level.
2. Dwyane Wade- Carries the Heat still, great shooter, and can drive to the basket against anyone.
3. Brandon Roy- With the draft pick, I have him at SG position. If he is at that position look out because he can score with the best of them.
4. Joe Johnson- Can flat out shoot the lights out. Enough said.
5. Andre Iguodala- Great defender, still young, can do just about anything.
6. Manu Ginobili- Injuries really took a toll on Manu. Hopefully, he can get back to normal.
7. Michael Redd- Great shooter, when healthy one of the best scorer in the league.
8. Vince Carter- Traded to Magic, getting up in age, but can still score.
9. Ray Allen- Getting up in age, but can still shoot with the best.
10. Ben Gordon- Great shooter, don't know where he'll end up, but still a solid player.

Small Forwards

1. LeBron James- Prince James will have to prove himself with shaq neverless a great player.
2. Danny Granger- Great young upcoming players
3. Kevin Durant- Very talented, really have to score with the Thunder.
4. Carmelo Anthony- Still very young, doesn't ahoot much, but when he does he makes shots.
5. Paul Pierce- Getting up in age, but still can score.
6. Rudy Gay- Geat young player, I don't think he would score that much if he was on a solid team.
7. Al Thornton- Another great young talent, can score, working with Blake Griffin might lower his numbers slightly.
8. Hedo Turkoglu- Can shoot the three ball well, defend well, also pass well.
9. Richard Jefferson- Has a new home with the Spurs, production should go down slightly
10. Gerald Wallace- Great player, underrated player also.

Power Forwards

1. Dirk Nowitzki- Great shooter from anywhere, can rebound well
2. Chris Bosh- Question is will he move, he will be a great player where ever hes at.
3. Kevin Garnett- A healthy Garnett is a explosive Garnett, enough said.
4. Antawn Jamison- Getting up in age, but still is very producted, had a lot of injuries, so that might have saved him a couple of great years.
5. Amare Stoudimire- Great athlete, great rebounder, can score at will.
6. David West- Very powerful, has nice moves around the paint.
7. LaMarcus Aldridge- Great young talent, production might go down if Greg Oden can stay healthy.
8. Carlos Boozer- Can score and rebound well.
9. Al Jefferson- Plays for a bad team but can play very well.
10. David Lee- Had a outstanding year last season. Outstanding rebounder, averages a double-double.


1. Dwight Howard- So strong, best rebounder in the NBA, still needs a couple of good post moves, but is very young.
2. Tim Duncan- A proven veteran, can still play with the best of them when healthy.
3. Pau Gasol- Proved he is one of the best post players last season with Kobe.
4. Mehmet Okur- More of a shooter, but a solid rebounder also.
5. Nene Hilario- Can score well, block shots well, good rebounder.
6. Emeka Okafor- Averages a double-double, enough said.
