Boston.com had this poll. They had as options Detroit, NJ, SA, Phoenix and us. I say you immediately cross the Nets off the list as I think all three of their trio (Jefferson, Kidd, Carter) fall somewhere between mildly and highly overrated. Detroit's Billups, Hamilton, Wallace is a solid group, but by no means deserves to be mentioned with the other three. That leaves us with... Phoenix: Stoudemire, Marion, Nash San Antonio: Duncan, Ginobili, Parker Boston: Garnett, Pierce, Allen I rule out San Antonio, because without Duncan, I'm not sure Ginobili or Parker really amount to all that much. That basically leaves us with us versus Phoenix, I give us the edge. It's close, but KG is the best player between the two teams, and I always think Nash is MILDLY overrated due to the fact that while he does make everyone else around him that much better, he has also been the beneficiary of being the point guard for some explosive offensive teams (and no surprise, his career didn't really take off until he came to Phoenix). So, what does this tell us? I think it tells us a lot. Look at the company of the other "3 man teams". They are, year in and year out, the teams considered to be favorites in their respective conferences. With that in mind, no matter who you vote for in this poll, I think one can be pretty confident the C's are in a great position to compete for the title over the next few seasons.
