Wade had a poor year by his own standards and probably should not have been in the top 10



8) Dwyane Wade: 8.77
 
Dwayne Wade had a poor year by his standards, and placing him in the top 10 feels more like a gift than an actual ranking. Dirk Nowtizki had a sub par year and was kicked out of the top 10 so the same should have been done to Wade.
 
9) Russell Westbrook: 8.76
 
Russell Westbrook is one of those players you either love or hate, but there is no denying that the OKC Thunder point guard is a force of nature. Having Westbrook at number nine seems dead on, even though I would have loved to see Deron Williams ahead of him.


10) Deron Williams: 8.69
 
Deron Williams has always been a great player and the number 10 ranking perfect. Williams will have a chance to move up on this list if he can turn the Nets into a serious contender in the coming season

That is a very odd order.  Derrick Rose is out for all of the playoffs and maybe longer.  I think you have to weigh in on "consistency" for this list.  Kevin Love behind Kobe?  Really?  Kevin Love is considered almost as good as Kobe?  Innocuous nonsense.
