Derrick Rose claims he is the best player in the NBA, but CBS Sports doesn't even have him in the top 10.

CBS Sports writes, "Rose only drops four spots despite missing all of last season recovering from his ACL injury. The rankings on him are a bit diverse. One had him 12th, another eighth and another 15th. It's hard to place a guy that didn't play last season.

"But Rose is clearly a top player when healthy and assuming he returns to be close to what he was previously, he's a top-10 player. But that's assuming."

Rose is listed as No. 13 with Tim Duncan (12) and Carmelo Anthony (11) ahead of him. 

Along with Rose, five other Bulls members made the top 100 list including Joakim Noah (28), Luol Deng (30), Carlos Boozer (71), Jimmy Butler (88), and Taj Gibson (90).

The top 10 players will be released tomorrow.
