    Why do I think that you posted this to toot Kentucky's horn? Eric Bledsoe ranked 20 spots higher than Joakim Noah. I completely disagree with these rankings. In addition, out of principal there should be no players from UK on the list.

    It wasn't to compare the two schools - good grief. We do that enough on this site. There are some around here who follow the NBA much closer than I do and I figured there'd be some interesting takes. Lebron not number 1 is baffling to me. I thought it was interesting that Beal was the highest ranked gator (I think at least). I'm not a big NBA guy and don't have strong feelings one way or another about most.

    Lebron will be in his 14th season in 2017. That's when players start to decline. Durant will be at his Apex. I don't think it's far fetched that Durant will have surpassed him by then. It's also not a stretch to think that he will not have either.

    The NBA is all about $'s and marketing. It is who does the league want to be the best for marketing purposes. KD is special, but it will be hard to make that level in a small market.
