chief beef (k3vin k.), Thursday, 15 November 2012 15:33 (six years ago) link

dang no one told me bledsoe was baby bron

lag∞n, Thursday, 15 November 2012 15:34 (six years ago) link

who?

chief beef (k3vin k.), Thursday, 15 November 2012 16:16 (six years ago) link

i voted davis but now im think the timing might favor more a lebron > durant > davis succession

lag∞n, Thursday, 15 November 2012 18:28 (six years ago) link

i dont have idea when this should happen. 2017, 18, 19 ?

moullet, Thursday, 15 November 2012 18:34 (six years ago) link

hes 27 now so he could start slowly declining any time

lag∞n, Thursday, 15 November 2012 18:38 (six years ago) link

bron will begin to decline in 4-5 years probably, the question is how long will it take for him to reach the rest of the pack, since he's so far ahead of everyone else now

chief beef (k3vin k.), Thursday, 15 November 2012 18:39 (six years ago) link

barring injury i don't think he's going anywhere for a few years

chief beef (k3vin k.), Thursday, 15 November 2012 18:39 (six years ago) link

dude there is no fn way bron starts to decline at 32

lag∞n, Thursday, 15 November 2012 18:40 (six years ago) link

right now he is at the peak age for basketball players, and his game is highly dependent on athleticism

lag∞n, Thursday, 15 November 2012 18:41 (six years ago) link

THERE IS NO FISCAL BRON CLIFF

chief beef (k3vin k.), Thursday, 15 November 2012 18:42 (six years ago) link

i don't think there's really a precedent for lebron so i'm not sure that worries me so much. his gradual move to the 4 will help too

chief beef (k3vin k.), Thursday, 15 November 2012 18:43 (six years ago) link

i think hell be good for a long time and the early stages of his decline will be slight but in three years he will prob not be quite as good as he is now, and most people wont notice

lag∞n, Thursday, 15 November 2012 18:43 (six years ago) link

his gradual move to the 4 will help too

Yeah, at some point he'll just be a bad-ass PF instead an all-world SF.

after lebron isnt anymore

so u mean 'this season' ; )

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

System, Monday, 19 November 2012 00:01 (six years ago) link

i think davis is the best bet. i think there's a not-tiny chance that durant's already hit his ceiling and could regress

chief beef (k3vin k.), Monday, 19 November 2012 01:10 (six years ago) link

durant seems to be showing a lot of improvement on defense and playmaking and maybe rebounding tho thats more likely an effect of the fact that hes playing the 4 more now

lag∞n, Monday, 19 November 2012 01:13 (six years ago) link

Automatic thread bump. This poll's results are now in.

System, Tuesday, 20 November 2012 00:01 (six years ago) link

who is the other?? i had a hard time thinking of someone obvious

chief beef (k3vin k.), Tuesday, 20 November 2012 00:01 (six years ago) link

(other than javale mcgee)

chief beef (k3vin k.), Tuesday, 20 November 2012 00:01 (six years ago) link

lebron still has a good number of years on top imo. voted other because i'm hoping there's some wunderkind out there who's not even in the league yet and will dominate post LBJ.

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Tuesday, 20 November 2012 00:22 (six years ago) link

Agree I don't think the player who takes the reins from Lebron is in the league right now.

One bad call from barely losing to (Alex in SF), Tuesday, 20 November 2012 13:20 (six years ago) link

kyrie is a bold inclusion on this list and while i'm really high on him, when's the last time a point was the best player in the league? magic? mayyybe cp3 for a minute there?

liljon /bia/ bia (k3vin k.), Tuesday, 20 November 2012 17:34 (six years ago) link

cp3 for a min otm

lag∞n, Tuesday, 20 November 2012 17:37 (six years ago) link

i like kyrie a lot, he maybe doesnt quite have the athleticism to compete for best player in the world tho

Matt Armstrong, Tuesday, 20 November 2012 20:05 (six years ago) link

moullet, Thursday, 22 November 2012 00:59 (six years ago) link

There’s nothing special about this coverage, apart from James drawing the attention of every player on the floor.

moullet, Thursday, 22 November 2012 01:02 (six years ago) link

three years pass...

We was prognosticatin' fools!

a little too mature to be cute (Aimless), Sunday, 8 May 2016 18:47 (three years ago) link

one month passes...

well obviously this was curry

who's next? towns?

k3vin k., Monday, 13 June 2016 16:56 (three years ago) link

ya prob, fwiw its arguable that kd was better than bron for a season

lag∞n, Monday, 13 June 2016 16:58 (three years ago) link

theres still a chance for brow to briefly be it hes only 23. obv he'd need to not die repeatedly

ciderpress, Monday, 13 June 2016 18:11 (three years ago) link

i still have faith in the brow, would be surprised if he just plateaus and then declines

if young slothrop don't trust ya i'm gon' rhyme ya (slothroprhymes), Monday, 13 June 2016 18:15 (three years ago) link

def still a window for brow, has to get healthy tho, gtfo of nola

lag∞n, Monday, 13 June 2016 18:17 (three years ago) link

Got a feeling that towns is gonna own the league for a good chunk of time starting in about two years

lotta towns fans itt. no one saw curry coming.

21st savagery fox (m bison), Saturday, 29 December 2018 18:06 (nine months ago) link

surprised no one mentioned kawhi...or was this before his finals MVP?

seems like the lebron/curry/KD/brow/giannis/kawhi group is going to have a good grip on the elite conversation for the next couple of years at least, no one else really knocking on that door except maybe embiid or jokic?

k3vin k., Saturday, 29 December 2018 18:12 (nine months ago) link

knew I was forgetting someone in that elite group: harde obv

this poll was during kawhi's 2nd year which led to the first of the heat-spurs finals matchups. he was still basically a role player at that point. reminds me that start-turns can kinda come out of nowhere (like justise winslow rn for example).

21st savagery fox (m bison), Saturday, 29 December 2018 19:06 (nine months ago) link

i can see deaaron fox or luka getting into this conversation in a couple of years.

21st savagery fox (m bison), Saturday, 29 December 2018 19:08 (nine months ago) link

it's a pretty cool time to be a mavs fan again
