Where is Kawhi Leonard?

Level 65
Oct 12, 2021
Probably has to do with him being out for most, if not all, of this season with the torn ACL.

That's the first thing I thought, too, but then remembered the ACL.

Brandon Ingram being above Jaylen Brown, Westbrook, Lavine, SGA, etc is just hilarious. Also, Draymond is way too high. Randle is too low. ESPN knows they can just put players in a random order and they'll still get clicks.

None of the placings you mentioned were even bad lol. Draymond isn't way too high either, he's way too low. Also Gobert at 25? He's at least 15.

Rudy Gobert is not a top 15 player in the NBA. He's pretty good where he is at right now.

Feel bad for all the people who looked forward to seeing Kyrie this season when he might not even play that much.
+2
Level 63
Oct 14, 2021
I hate having someone on the list who hasn’t even played a regular season game yet. He’s probably gonna be great, but should have to prove it first.

Why was Markkanen even considered by ESPN there's a reason the bulls were starting their rookie over him and just let him walk for what like 15 MIL a season (which in itself was being called out for the horrible contract it is for the Cavs)

Everyone knows Seth Curry is top 90.

Level 62

To paraphrase Bill Terry (who was talking about the 1934 Dodgers) "Is Ben Simmons still in the league?"

I guess all will be forgiven if his latest ploy works. Harden seems to have gotten past all the criticism for showing up out of shape and barely interested last year when he was still a Rocket.

Guessed 98 of 100 and got 4 points?!

same as 99

Obviously with a list of 100 AND ESPN creating it you can find many flaws but... Kemba Walker at 70...?

Cade Cunningham was ranked without yet to even play a second in the NBA, c'mon ESPN. Yeah he was the number 1 pick but he has summer league and preseason tape to base his ranking off of. He has proven nothing yet, take him off the list until he actually plays NBA competition

Same with Jalen, though they will probably make it on this list.

The disrespect to Jaylen, Lavine, and Randle is crazy. These people were all all starts last year and you dont have any of them top 25?

Brutal to get 97 and only get 4 pts.

The disrespect on Demar DeRozan is unreal ESPN be better.

Also Garland and Dejounte being in the 80s is laughable

I'm sorry but there is just no way Luka is better than Curry.

is everyone on jetpunk an nba genius or is this just selection bias because how is the average 60 and getting 69 = 2 stars???

I think it's funny that the Magic don't have a single player on this list.
