As much as Dennis Green would hate to admit this, all of the NBA superstars who populated the various rankings before the start of the 2012-13 season are no longer who we thought they were. That's where these updated NBA superstar rankings come in.
Some players, like the numerous first-time All-Stars and should-be All-Stars you'll see represented, have exceeded the expectations and emerged as premier players in the Association. Others have fallen from the ranks of the best in the business.
