    1. For Point Combo Guards

    I'd slide Stat padder Westbrook to tier 2. While you could argue he's not a great one option, it's pretty evident that Westbrook saved beta why too many times and probably the most I've seen a 2nd player outplay the best player in a playoff setting. He's also killing it in Houston with all the spacing now.

    I'd rate Nash over Stockton. Way too watered down of the league in the 90s tbh.

    2. No disagreement on SGs..Wade is becoming one of the most underrated legends. ESPN already has Kawhi over him in top players of all time which is just flat out disrespectful

    3. No disagrement but if the covid Situation improves, I think kawhi will slide his way into 2nd tier if he wins another championship or two

    4. Davis is too high. Skill set does not equate actualy on court achievement.

    5. Olajuwon is tier 1.

    1. Westbrook, at least at this stage of his career, is spacing dependant to thrive.

    Stockton was Nash's equal on offense, with significantly better defense.

    3. I don't care how many contrived/tainted championships S bag ac ulates, it doesn't change the fact that his play making/intangibles are pathetic.

    4. Based on what? The one time he had a decent/healthy (Cousins was out, but replaced by Mirotic) Pelicans team, they swept a 50/50 series.

    5. Fair enough.

    1. I just don't see it. Curry/Harden are very one dimensional. I could see Iverson shredding Curry in a series. This is the group I least agree with

    2. This is your best group but I think Drexler belongs in Tier 2

    3. Lebron is certainly not in a tier by himself. I mean he was dominated by a guy in Tier 3 multiple times.

    4. PF/C. Overall good job. Obviously difficult to differentiate between many of these guys position wise. To me it comes down to 18 foot jump shot. I think guys like Karl or Ewing could step back further and develop that 3 point stroke. Maybe the ball handling is difference maker to you? But overall I agree no issues

    Dad Killer - 28 3FG career (not counting years the line was moved in)
    LeJoke - 34 3FG career

    These guys are not in a tier by themselves. Not sorry.

    I think a legitimate argument can be made for Beta for tier 1 for combo forwards.

    Lebron/Durant tier 1

    With Kawhi eventually reaching tier 2 with Johnson, and Bird

    as if curry wouldnt shred tiny iverson just as bad if not worse lol

    AI played at a time where no one really made him work. there werent a large number of really good scoring small guards at the time he was dominating, unlike the past 10-12 years. he could put all his energy into offense, then on defense play passing lanes because few opponents were worth guarding closely.

    3. Lebron is certainly not in a tier by himself. I mean he was dominated by a guy in Tier 3 multiple times.
    when? i recall kawhi having a solid series and doing well at making lebron work harder than any other spur could make him work, but in no way did he outplay lebron, and he certainly did not dominate him by any means. funny how quickly people forget game 7 when the pressure was at the highest, he completely destroyed kawhi all game long.

    At the overrating of Durant, who hasn't won one legitimate championship despite being on a contender the majority of his career. Granted, the Thunder had bad luck with injuries and running into a few all-time teams, but still.

    To so much as consider the possibility of mentioning him in the same breathe as James or any top 10 player, he needs at least one legitimate championship.
