BlackAthlete.net has a list of the real top 10 players in the league. Tim Duncan, Kobe Bryant, and Steve Nash lead the way as the top 3. Surprisingly, Paul Pierce is listed at #8 in front of Elton Brand and Shaquille O'Neal who are listed at 9 and 10. Here is their reasoning for their selecton of Pierce. As part of their reasoning, they say that Pierce is the only player in the league to lead their team in points, rebounds, assists and steals.
