Top 10 NBA players of 2014

The top-100 NBA player list compiled by pals Rob Mahoney and Ben Golliver of SI.com's The Point Forward, the Sports Illustrated blog duo gave Dwyane Wade a slight edge over James Harden, slotting the Miami Heat shooting guard in at No. 8, three spots ahead of the Houston Rockets All-Star, who finished just outside the SI team's top 10. (Nestled between the two at No. 9? Fellow two-guard Kobe Bryant, who took All-NBA First Team honors last season while Wade and Harden shared the Third Team backcourt.)




Check out who made the list, do you agree with who made the number one spot?
