It's not even close. King James is clearly the best in the league right now. His all-around game blows the competition away.

Durant proved this season he's not merely a scorer. He is a killer. While some areas of his game still need work, he can lead his team to victories because he does what he does best. Scores.

His positioning on this list has a lot to do with the fact that he's really the only superstar center in the league, which only increases his value.

For now, Rondo is second-fiddle in the "true PG" discussion in my eyes. That said, he showed this season and last that he is a walking triple double.
