According to Sporting News, 4 Celtics players are in the top 50 current NBA players. The all-star panel selected Kobe Bryant to be the top ranked player over Lebron James. As far as the C’s roster, Garnett came in 7th, Pierce 10th, Ray Allen 27th, and Rondo 38th.
I have a problem with Rondo being so far down on the list while point guards like Derrick Rose, Devin Harris, and Gilbert Arenas all rank higher. According to this list, Rondo is the 11th ranked Point Guard. Questionable. The list also throws Elton Brand in at 45th, Yao Ming at 15th, and Tracy McGrady at 24. Brand hasnt competed at a high level in 2 years, Yao Ming is done for, and TMac cant keep himself “healthy” enough to play a whole season.
