TAMIKA CATCHINGS
INDIANA FEVER
Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks
Jermaine O'Neal, Indiana Pacers

Because he's so versatile at his size, which makes him unstoppable.

Because he represents Indiana!! And, after a dominant year last year, he is on his way to becoming one of the top young forwards in the NBA.

Kevin Garnett, Minnesota Timberwolves Grant Hill, Orlando Magic

Because of his passion for the game, and the way he goes out there and plays all out.

Because he's come back from all of his injuries, and he is truly making a difference. The old G.Hill is back!.

Ray Allen, Seattle Sonics
Lebron James, Cleveland Cavaliers

Because he can hit the shot with or without defense. He is MONEY!!!

Because of his ability to make plays for himself and his teammates. Plus, he knows how to involve everyone around him, and make them better!

Tracy McGrady, Houston Rockets Dwayne Wade, Miami Heat

Because he knows how to take over and step up and make a difference when his team needs him.

Because of his ability to make plays for himself and his teammates. Plus, the clutch shots that he's made down the stretch are unbelievable.

Yao Ming, Houston Rockets
Shaquille O'Neal, Miami Heat

Because he's 7'5", and it would be great to see him matched up against Shaq, again.

He's the most dominant post player in the LEAGUE!!!! Are you seriously considering ANYONE ELSE?????

KARA LAWSON
SACRAMENTO MONARCHS
Tim Duncan, San Antonio Spurs
Richard Jefferson, New Jersey Nets

I was tempted to replace TD with the trendy pick Amare because of Phoenixís record and what I thought were better stats. After comparing the two, T.D. clearly is the better and more deserving player.

He has been a rock leading the Nets without JKidd.

Kevin Garnett, Minnesota Timberwolves Grant Hill, Orlando Magic

Can you say back to back MVPís?

Steady and consistent, great to see him playing again.

Ray Allen, Seattle Sonics
Lebron James, Cleveland Cavaliers

I donít think there has been a more impressive player in the first half. Itís unreal the season Seattle is having. I didnít expect this.

Do I need a reason?

Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers Dwayne Wade, Miami Heat

Regardless of what anyone thinks about this guy, he is still unbelievable.

DWade has taken his game to another level this year.

Yao Ming, Houston Rockets
Shaquille O'Neal, Miami Heat

I would like ask ask the question why Amare is listed as a forward when he starts at center for the Suns. Yao by default.

Because no one can stop him.

TASHA BUTTS
MINNESOTA LYNX
Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks
Jermaine O'Neal, Indiana Pacers

I think Dirk has proven that he is a great player with a tremendous amount of advantage.

Regardless of anything that has happened, he is still one of the best players at his position.

Kevin Garnett, Minnesota Timberwolves Grant Hill, Orlando Magic

KG is by far the most dominant and Versatile forward in the league.

He is having a comeback year.

Ray Allen, Seattle Sonics
Lebron James, Cleveland Cavaliers

He is basically carrying his team right now.

What else can you say!?! He's an amazing athlete.

Sam Cassell, Minnesota Timberwolves Dwayne Wade, Miami Heat

He is a great complement to KG. he helps lead their team.

He is having an unblelievable year and he is complementing Shaq very well.

Yao Ming, Houston Rockets
Shaquille O'Neal, Miami Heat

I think he still has to prove himself, but he is the best center in the west.

He's unstoppable.

RUTH RILEY
DETROIT SHOCK
Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks
Richard Jefferson, New Jersey Nets
Tim Duncan, San Antonio Spurs Grant Hill, Orlando Magic
