Updated Rankings of the Top 5 Players at Every Position in Season's Second Half

We're bringing you fresh rankings of the top five NBA players at each position, but this time we're using a ratings system to determine the hierarchy.

As the league's hottest stars embark upon the second half of the 2012-13 season, we rate them in each major category to compile an overall points standing.

The point totals assess every player's current aptitude in the major areas, and here's how the scoring works:

Each category is worth 10 points: (1) Scoring, (2) passing (for guards), (3) rebounding (for forwards), (4) defense, (5) winning and (6) value to team.

We factor in production and efficiency in each category, except for the "winning" category, which is calculated by rounding off the team's current winning percentage (.512 winning percentage = 5 points).

The player at each position with the most points out of 50 wins. Game on!

 

*Small forwards include all 6 categories, so their point totals are out of 60.
