The Sporting News picks four Celtics in NBA top 50 players

Thursday, December 3, 2009

The Sporting News came out with its list of top 50 NBA players, and four Celtics made the cut:  Rajon Rondo (38), Ray Allen (27), Paul Pierce (10), and Kevin Garnett (7).

Frankly, I would have put Rondo higher and Garnett lower.  Rondo's behind Derrick Rose, a player he routinely kills, Tracy McGrady, a player who routinely misses games, Devin Harris, Al Horford, and Nene.  Garnett, meanwhile, still has a huge effect on games and has been playing great basketball of late, but has clearly struggled to be the same player he once was.

I guess it's a tough list to make, but I have a lot of qualms with whoever made this one, starting with the choice at the top.

The Sporting News chose Kobe Bryant; I would have chosen Lebron James.  Check the list out for yourself, and let me know if you agree.
