    This means Mitch, Gobert and Conley are all top 30. Oh, I forgot Niang!

    Total crap. If Joe was from the USA he would be so much higher. And if Rudy was from USA he would be top 10. Same with Ben Simmons would be top 15. And same with Luca he would be top 20. Disgraceful!

    The list is generally pretty good. I'd likely move CP, Simmons, Towns, Aldridge (16 is really high for him), Westbrook and Butler down... has Rudy higher than most national guys would. Whole starting lineup is top 65... that seems really good.

    A pg that wants to be top ten should make at least more than 0 threes, and graduated from their rookie status by year three.

    There are changes I would make to the list but the only Jazz player I would put higher is Rudy. And I don't think 14 is bad. IMO Ingles gets plenty of love and credit for being a great role player.

    He's going to have the jump shot this year. Watch out the rest of the league.

    I'm excited to see him start shooting from beyond 5 feet, and missing a ton. Oh, I'll be watching out. lol

    I don't know, I think you should at least be familiar with the concept of NBA defense to be rated in the top 15. Towns above Rudy is a continued stain on the face of sports analysis. It is kind of the way to determine the serious from the poseurs.

    Have you been following his workouts? If not, what makes you believe he will?

    Also, I can understand Giannis at number one, but they should've given it to Kawhi who outplayed him in the playoffs.

    And what's with the dumb fonts for the numbers that are barely readable? They need a better graphics artist.

    I feel like Dame should have been ahead of PG13 for the same reason. He went face to face with him at the highest stakes and destroyed him. It takes a lot of audacity to place George in front of Dame in the aftermath of one of the greatest shots the NBA has ever seen.

    Agreed. The way he bricks shots, that ball is liable to bite some poor player in the head, and nooooo one wants that.

    Rudy’s offense is worlds better than Towns defense. Karl has also never won anything... why does Booker get some much **** and Towns gets elevated for the same thing admittedly on a different scale. Talent is great but dude is soft AF... you think Jimmy Butler comes at Rudy with the smoke he gave KAT. Rudy is a competitor and a winner... Towns may be more physically talented but his brain ain’t there and Rudy’s is.

    It’s just dumb... but buckets I guess.

    Seriously, PG is pretty damn overrated as well. I wouldn't even rate him ahead of Rudy if we are being honest. Not if you want to win. The argument for Dame is a bit murkier, because PG is a pretty good defender. I do think he has been sliding by on reputation more than actual defense lately though. He was a world beater last year on defense until the Thunder actually played a real Western Conference schedule. Then he wilted like a rose petal. Also, the number 8 player in the NBA (Jokic) doesn't get his *** handed to him by Luis Skola, of all people.

    Bogey and Tobias Harris are very close on this ranking. Jazz essentially scored Harris-level talent for half the price.
