SI's Top 100 NBA players

21 posts in this topic

heading into the 2013/2014 season...

 

100 to 51 have been released, and no Horncats among them.

 

I'm assuming Kemba and Jefferson made the top 50.

 

Doesn't mean anything, but some fun offseason reading.  A lot of surprising picks there.

I think it is safe to assume Kemba and Jefferson in the top 50 considering both were not included in SI's Notable Top 100 Omissions list...http://nba.si.com/2013/09/16/nba-top-100-players-omissions-jeremy-lin-jeff-green/

 

Gerald Henderson though was in their notable omissions list:  

 

Gerald Henderson, Charlotte Bobcats (G, 25)

2012-13 stats: 31.4 MPG, 15.5 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 2.6 APG, 44.7 FG%, 33.0 3FG%
2012-13 advanced stats: 16.4 PER, 3.3 Win Shares, -0.9 RAPM

Henderson was a close cut, done in largely by an absence of definitive strengths. He does a terrific job of filling in the gaps that crop up in any lineup, but there’s an unfortunate cost in being only pretty good in so many phases of the game. The lack of a singular, specific talent is unmistakable; Henderson isn’t a versatile enough ball-handler to initiate offense more frequently; he shoots well from mid-range but hasn’t yet had a league-average season from beyond the arc; he posts up effectively but without the stability to be an offensive focal point; and he rates as a merely good perimeter defender. That potpourri of skills makes him a very useful player, but one who is difficult to define and compare favorably to those in the top 100. — RM

Looks like they're gonna completely snub Kemba. No surprise there, he's the most underrated player in the NBA.

He's a HELL of a lot better than those PGs ranked 80-100

30-21 is out and he's still not on it. 

 

I don't know if he's Top 50 worthy, but Top 100? Give the guy some credit, he belongs there.

Now you're just trolling again. Look at his PER, scoring and assists averages. Look at who is in the top 100. Many of those guys' numbers are below his across the board. Take off your Chris Paul blinders and be unbiased for a minute. He should be in the top 75 at worst.

Using Hollinger's PER...a stat oblivious to position that takes into account all the positive contributions a player makes (statistically) and subtracts the negative. 

Kemba was the 8th ranked PG in the entire NBA last year (18.86)

4th ranked PG in the EAST

    • WaPo isn't partners with the CIA. Amazon Web Services, which sells servers to thousands upon thousands of companies and websites, sold servers to the CIA. You can buy your own now right here. Does that make you partners with the WaPo? https://aws.amazon.com When Jimmy Dore says "600 million dollars is more than the Washington Post is even worth!" he's being a dumbass. The Washington Post didn't make the deal with the CIA so what they're worth is irrelevant. Amazon Web Services sold them servers, and they happen to have the same parent company as the Washington Post. The thing about Jimmy Dore is that he is absolutely utterly obsessed with Hillary Clinton. Like, utterly obsessed. Everything goes back to Hillary Clinton to him, and his obsession has morphed into skepticism of the Russian investigation, because he views it as an excuse for why Hillary lost. He can't accept the Russia stuff being true because if it's true then maybe Clinton didn't lose on merit. And so his skepticism of the Russia investigation has led him down the path of 'well the Deep State is conspiring against Trump' and 'the Deep State is the real true evil.' He fact-checks nothing. It's Alex Jones level poo.
    • Anyone who can equate any modern presidency at any moment in time with the embarrassment we see right now is off their gd rocker. What is really telling is that we now see that Trump can't just be casual.  He can't just talk it up with other peers.  He can't just chill the f*ck out. Seriously....people like this are weird as hell.   It's been obvious he's the head of a business but not a business savvy guy since the Apprentice.  I don't understand why we want the Sharknado meets 80s bad guy of Presidents.  
    • They said they're working on four spin off shows.. HBO really milking westeros for all it's worth. Although, I wouldn't mind seeing what happened with valyria or the fall of the mad king
