Little surprise there. I must say I agree with all the choices.

Funny that GMs give Nash respect, but most fans of the NBA don't.

I don't know whether I'd consider TMac a Small Forward. No votes for Dirk?

well i wouldnt really expect any votes for Dirk. Garnett/Duncan are clearly better than him at the PF position. All i want is for dirk to establish himself as the #3 PF

Most fans do not understand the game very well. The vast majority pick style over substance, which is obvious when you consider the popularity of players like Vince Carter and Steve Francis. Players like Nash or say Michael Redd don't do too many overly flashy things but have a much larger influence on the games and the success of their teams.

So your argument is that.....Steve "pistol pete" Nash is underappreciated because he isnt stylish?

hmmm...

I think you may have something, but "style" isnt it. At least how I define it.

Since Redd was mentioned I'll throw it out there that I have a lot of questions about how good he actually is. Case in point, he had the worst +/- on Milwaukee's roster last year at -8.8 (by comparison the other guys getting the 2/3 minutes - Mason, Kukoc, KVH, TT - ranged from -.2 for TT up to +6.1 for Mason). It's troubling to me that he's that low, esp. since the primary culprit appears to be defense, where the Bucks were a full 9 points per 100 posessions better defensively with Redd parked on the bench.

are you getting the info from 82games? Those are some good stats.

Also, you'd expect a negative "on court" number for a player on a losing team that logs significant minutes, but it is shocking that the "off court" number is so good. +7.8

The spread is worse than Walker's.

Maybe in your mind he needs to have a poor +/-, but for the rest of us he had a +4.0 which is just a little better than Sprewell.

A little research would help...

TMac should definately get some of Kobe's percentage at SG. LeBron gets votes for best SF :S

I don't disagree with any of those. Steve Nash may be the healthiest of the top 3 point guards listed. I think it'll be interesting to see how the stats shake out at the PG position this year. Kidd will be out for 2 months AT LEAST, Nash is on a new team, Cassell is old and unhappy. I expect some of the younger PG's to start rising to the top (Tony Parker).
