    Every year the idiots at ESPN decide to quantify how much better Lebron is than everyone else in the NBA in a list of 500 players in the NBA. So here it is again, folks.
    That's all folks. I'll be back after fall break.


    44- Al Jefferson
    53- Paul Milsap
    89 - Derrick Favors
    123- Gordon Hayward
    125- Mo Williams
    163- Marvin Williams
    201- Randy Foye
    205- Enes Kanter
    242- Alec Burks
    310- Roger Bell
    323- Earl Watson
    342- Jeremy Evans
    347- Jamaal Tinsley
    380- DeMarre Carroll
    483- Kevin Murphy
    495- Blake Ahearn
    498- Shan Foster (Who? What the hell?!?!? Don't ask me, he's listed as a Jazz player.)

    I'll try to keep updating this list.

    Highlights-

    67- Carlos Boozer
    79- Andrei Kirilenko
    108- Devin Harris (So we got worse at the PG position?)
    There's 7 players on the team considered worse than Bell.
    274- Boom Bitches
    277- Andre Drummond is ranked worse than Kanter.
    250- C.J. Miles
    216- Josh Howard

    I actually like nbarank.

    They invite bloggers, journalists, and experts from all over the Internet (not just ESPN) to rank players from 1-10, then add up the results using some formula. So it's a general Internet consensus on NBA rankings. I have a friend who runs a Spurs/General NBA blog who's helping vote.

    4. Dwight Howard
    5. Derrick Rose
    6. Chris Paul
    7. Dwyane Wade
    8. Deron Williams
    9. Kevin Love
    10. Carmelo Anthony

    Predictions for where the rest of our players will end up. I don't agree with this, but this is how I think they will be ranked. Just off the top of my head.


    Jefferson - 24
    Millsap- 25

    Hayward- 41
    Favors- 45

    Mo Williams - 62
    Marvin Williams- 68
    Randy Foye- 69

    Alec Burks- 87

    Jamal Tinsley- 101
    Earl Watson- 106

    Enes Kanter 250

    I doubt Favors or Hayward will be in the top 50. Maybe after next season, but probably not in the current ranks.

    You could be right. I could take a better guess if I studied it a little more

    So I'd guess they're saying Hasheem Thabeet is a bust at this point as he was a #2 pick and is ranked #443.

    They're going to overestimate Kevin Love. I'm preparing myself now.

    My Top 10:

    1 Lebrawn
    2 Durant
    3 Chris Paul
    4 Dwight
    5 Rose
    6 Dirk
    7 Wade
    8 Kobe
    9 Westbrook
    10 DWill

    Honorable mention: Griffin, Melo, Bynum, Parker, Bosh, Love

    3 through 10 are all old, injured, or overrated, so maybe this is the year for the Jazz to move on up.

    An average score of 7 was between ranks of 41 and 42 last year. I'd imagine Hayward will probably get around a 6.25, which would be around 61. Favors around 70, maybe? I will say the Jazz will likely have a bunch of guys between 50-70.

    Jefferson got 6.67 which put him at 52. Millsap got 6.42 and 57. Man. That's depressing. If that's the case, there's no way Hayward and Favors will get north of 6.00. That'll put them 75 and below.

    Westbrook is really good. But I would trust Deron in a big game over Westbrook right now. And he makes his teammates better. Runs the offense better. Although I will agree Westbrook is a far superior athlete to Deron. Westbrook could easily become better than Deron. He just has to put it all together. I actually think Westbrook could crack the top five someday.
