Lig rankings

dWill at The Starting Five has unveiled "The NBA According to TSF: the Top Fiddy Players in the Lig," already to some wide criticism.

The big three all make the cut.

Luol Deng, Chicago: Deng is good, very good. He’s underrated in every aspect of the game, yet he is the linchpin of the Bulls. He is much like a younger Manu Ginobili, except with a higher upside. He can shoot from anywhere on the court and has nice post moves. He rebounds well. He defends well. And he plays with fire. This season expect to see Luol bust out.

33. Ben Gordon, Chicago: At 6′2″ The Commissioner guards taller shooting guards and does an excellent job. Plus, who is The Man when it’s time to take a big shot in Chi-town?

34. Kirk Hinrich, Chicago: Captain K is a baaaaad young man. Clutch, tough defensively, and a good decision-maker. Plus, he always seems to get under the opponents’ skin.

Not sure what defense BG supposedly plays, but a pretty complimentary rundown.
