define "better"...he's a more effective and useful player than Wade

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

I hated Kevin Love after what he did to Luis Scola. But with that aside, you can't deny him as a solid player. He's one of the top double double players currently speaking in the NBA. There's not that many players like him that clean up rebounds on both sides of the floor.

Wade on the other hand is an expiring shooting guard. He's clearly past his prime and he's been very inconsistent the last year or so.

As usual, Kevin Love is overrated. Also, Dwayne Wade is a bit too low on the list at an eight.

it's actually a pretty reasonable list

When asked about being No. 25, Kobe suggested that anyone who ranks him that low should be drug-tested


I am not a fan of Melo, but he should higher than Blak Griffin.

The criteria changed this year and was based on what the writers predict the players will achieve this coming season as opposed to the quality of each player. Makes some sense, otherwise there would be no way that Irving is a top 10 player. Neither is Gasol.
