Top 50 NBA Players 2010

A glance at players 11-50.

No. 50: Ray Allen

It’s not that surprising Ray Allen cracked the 50. He was Ray Allenon my original list of names that I compiled, but I had to drop him to make room for Pape Sy. (That’s a joke.) Actually, he was the last person I cut from my list. Ray finished 36th last year on our list, and our voters seem to be expecting Ray’s skills to continue to wither with age. After all, last year his points per game dropped for the fourth consecutive season down to 16.3, the lowest since his rookie year. Sure, that’s partly a function of his age — he’s totaled almost 38,000 minutes over 15 seasons and is entering his 15th season. But it’s also a sign of his willingness to step back and allow his teammates to shine — his 12.2 FGA per game was his lowest number in that category also since his rookie season.

Despite his age, Allen’s still remarkably durable, missing only 12 games over the last three seasons. Most importantly, Allen’s specialty is shooting, and shooting touch doesn’t necessarily fade with age. He might be a little slower fighting through picks or making defensive rotations, but give him space to launch and he’s probably going to knock it down. Don’t forget, just three months ago the man put 27 points on the Lakers in the first half of Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

    Kobe should come in third at this point, even though millions of lukewarm starstruck fans would disagree.

    7. CP3

    9. Pau
    10. Dirk

    The fact Kevin Durant Can score when he wants isn’t enough. LBJ still getting better while Kobe Declining. Wade won’t shine as bright as long as LBJ on his team.

    They’ll put lebron under kobe since he’s on the heat now. cp3 is undeniably better than d-will at the moment. Btw hornets are 6-0 and beat the heat as well
    Pau is getting better and better and actually deserves the no. 6 spot right now or at least before or right behind chris paul. Kevin Durant isn’t thriving right now.
