NBA Player Rankings and Tiers

Here are my Top 50 NBA players as of 1/30/2009. I have their name-team-position-age-stats(ppg&rpg for Centers and Forwards, ppg&apg for Guards) and some players have all 3 stats or another tidbit. If they have been injured for an extended period this year ihave it marked-(INJ-number of games missed). The players ranking is dropped a bit if they have been injured usually around the number of game s they missed is about how far they would drop, for instance Carmelo Anthony is ranked 25th, he has missed 15 games so if he were healthy the whole year he probably would have been ranked around number 10. That is why Carlos Boozer is not in the Top 50. Neither is Michael Redd who missed games earlier and is now out fo the year with a torn ACL or Gilbert Arenas who has not played this year.
