For the better part of the last month or so, ESPN.com has been ranking the players 1-500 and yesterday the top five were revealed. Surprising missing from the top five were 2-time scoring champ Kevin Durant(ranked No. 6), 5-time NBA champ Kobe Bryant (No. 7) and reigning MVP Derrick Rose (No.8). Coming in at number five was the reigning NBA Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki, who finally overcame his demons to lead the Dallas Mavericks to the title. New Orleans PG Chris Paul, who showed flashes of his old explosive self, came in ranked at number four. Dwyane Wade, who proved that he could still excel at a high level with two other superstars, found himself ranked third. Placing second in the ranking was Dwight Howard, Orlando’s dominant big man and reigning Defensive Player of the Year. And the player rated as the NBA’s best, most complete player was LeBron James, who nearly led Miami to the title. Did you guys agree with the rankings? Who do you feel the NBA’s best player?
