Vote: Dwayne Wade
Still an explosive all around player who could take many teams very far. Just like his teammates, his numbers are down from playing with such talent, but he's still a 25/5/5 50% guy on most teams and a superstar.

Nominate: John Wall
I think we forgot about Wall with his injuries and poor teams in Washington, but he was the #1 pick over the likes of Favors, Monroe, Cousins for a reason. Still an elite athlete with good vision.

Curry
MKG

Injury concerns have lowered Curry's ranking, but Curry bounced back just fine from rolling his ankle in practice the other day (though he did miss two games). He's played 38 of 40 games and he's been an absolute game changer that opens up the floor for the entire Warriors offense. Squeaky clean image, liked by everyone around the league, and he was New Orleans's primary target when they were looking to trade Chris Paul.

Vote Deron

Nominate Beal. I think with their play lately (Beal fantastic, MKG weak) Beal's value is now ahead of MKG's

V: Curry. (How anyone says Deron over him is beyond me).
N: Cousins. (A lot of talent and still only 22).

Vote: Kobe Bryant - He's having a great season despite his team's struggles and I think marketing value does influence trade value for most teams.

Nominate: Tim Duncan - He's a top player in the league who is under a good contract for 2.5 more seasons.

Vote: Still George.
Nom: Asik---I definitely think he deserves to be in the discussion. Young, favorable contract and one of the best defensive anchors in the league. Houston was really smart to take advantage of Chicago's cap/tax situation and make it impossible for them to match.
