The NBA is full of great debates, but while we often focus on the big-picture questions, it’s easy to cast aside the topic of who rules each individual position.
Halfway through the 2012-13 season, we have a solid idea of where each player stands in comparison to others. A ranking of productivity is often subjective in nature, but when looking closely at each of the top candidates, it’s easy to tell who has performed best with All-Star Weekend rapidly approaching.
The NBA features the best talent in the world, and that talent is diverse enough to be spread across all five positions. From point guard to center, this is a star-driven league. That’s what makes the games so fun to watch, and that’s what makes a debate like this worthy of discussion.
