List updated each week.

Top 5 list for Jan 23rd - Jan 29th

( ) = last weeks rankings

player photo  Los Angeles Lakers logo  (1)  1)Kobe Bryant/Los Angeles Lakers - Yup as much as I hate to do it, he deserves it. Leading his team to a 26 - 11 record and putting up solid numbers again (28Ppg - 5Apg - 6Rpg) his numbers should increase some with the loss of up and coming Andrew Bynum. If the Lakers win the division, Kobe DESERVES his 1st MVP award.

  • Last weeks avg's - 32PPG, 5PPG, 6APG
  • Key game of the week - Vs Denver Nuggets (19Pts, 5rebs, 11ast, 2 stl)

player photo Boston Celtics logo (2)  2)Kevin Garnett/Boston Celtics - Is leading the resurgence of the Boston Celtics with Ray Allen and Paul Pierce. Numbers are down a bit (19Ppg - 10Rpg - 4Apg - 1.5Bpg) but is the main reason why the Celtics started 30 - 4. He's MVP material in my book.

  • Last weeks avg's - 19 PPG, 9RPG, 6APG
  • Key game of the week - Vs New York Knicks (20pts, 13rebs, 7ast)

player photoORL(NR) 3) Dwight Howard/Orlando Magic - Nicknamed "Thunder". Howard's abilities and powerful physique have thus drawn attention from fellow NBA All-Stars. Tim Duncan once remarked. He is so developed... He has so much promise and I am glad that I will be out of the league when he is peaking." Hvaing a career year as well (22PPG, 15RPG, 2.5BPG)

  • Last weeks avg's - 18PPG, 14RPG, 3BPG, 2SPG
  • Key game of the week - Vs Detroit Pistons (23Pts, 8Rebs, 3Stls)

player photoCLE(NR) 4) Lebron James Is having another great year (30Ppg, 8Rpg, 7Apg) has the Cavs at 8 - 1 in January and to think he just turnred 23 years old. His future is looking bright and when Cleveland finally decides to put some Talent around him then watch out. I see multiple titles in his future.

  • Last weeks avg's - 35PPG, 7APG, 7RPG, 2SPG
  • Key game of the week - Vs Memphis Grizzlies (51 Pts, 8rebs, 9ast, 3stl)

player photoNO(4)  5)Chris Paul/New Orleans Hornets - Putting up career numbers across the boards(22Ppg - 4Rpg - 10Apg - league leading 2.8Spg) One of the up and coming Pg's in the league who is deserving of this spot. He has put this team on his back, and could carry them deep in the playoffs.

  • Last weeks avg's - 14PPG, 5RPG, 11APG
  • Key game of the week - Vs Millwaukee Bucks (16Pts, 7rebs, 10ast)

Outside of the Top 5.......
  • Steve Nash
  • Dirk Nowitzki
  • Baron Davis
  • Brandon Roy
  • Yao Ming

After last nights game, you have to reconsider the Baron. What a cough up.Are you slow?.....Did you even watch the game. Baron didn't lose it for the Warriors. Everyone else did. The guy Baron was matched up with shot 2-12 from the floor thanks to Barons defense.  As far as his offense goes.......

Baron only put up 24 points, 6 boards, 7 rebounds, 7 steals, 2 blocks, and a three, but I guess that isn't MVP standards.

Can't disagree with your list. I like Kobe at No. 1 and giving Brandon Roy some props was a nice move.

Trust me guys,

Dwight Howard was almost in, but IMO the 5 I listed have helped their team and have in return beaten quality teams. Boston hasn't played to many good teams, but 30 - 6 speaks for itself.

Can't disagree with you on this one... good choices and good information to back it up.. well done.

Dwight Howard for me should be the next to move up, without him, i suspect the Magic are not even mentioned in the top 8 in the East. Brandon Roy and Chauncey Billups are having better play this year, and Lebron James is on a team that is moving up again...

Steve Nash is having a good season even for him, but i think, alas, this year is not his time as the Suns struggle for offensive consistency.

So for me, i would have them in this order at this point.

1 Kevin Garnett - Celtics

2 Kobe Bryant - Lakers - hate to say it, but it will be between these two all year and since Garnett has won this with an awful team, i suspect he will have that on his side... Sorry Kobe, but you do deserve one of these one year!!!

3. Dwight Howard - Magic

4. Chauncey Billups = Pistons

5. Chris Paul - Hornets

with Baron Davis, LBJ, and Brandon knocking on the door.

I think Dwight Howard needs to be in the top 5.  His offensive improvement is why Orlando is one of the East's top teams.  Just imagine where they would be without him.

I personally would put LeBron James in the top 5, but I understand why you didn't.  His team is very mediocre.
