NBA Lockout Distractions: Power Ranking the League's 10 Best Players

I'd like to start off by saying this is not a historical comparison. I'm not power ranking the careers of each player. 

Kobe can no longer hide behind his rings, and LeBron doesn't get slammed for blowing it against the Celtics

This is based of the premise of one season. It's loosely designed to create an argument that would go something along the lines of who would be picked first in a one season format trying to build the best possible team without factoring in positions. This means Dwight Howard doesn't get bonus points for being the league's only elite all-around center. 

With that said, the criteria that I will base this off of include statistics, talent, efficiency, team value, maturity and durability.

So who is the best basketball player on the planet right now?
