SI's Top 100 NBA players

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

 

NBA top Ten PG's using PER
*=Eastern Conference

1.  Chris Paul (26.43)
2.  Russel Westbrook (23.98)
3.  Tony Parker (23.10)
4.  Kyrie Irving (21.51)*
5.  Stephen Curry (21.34)

6.  John Wall (20.91)*

7.  Deron Williams (20.38)*

8.  Kemba Walker (18.86)*

9.  Jose Calderon (18.80)

10. Mike Conley (18.38)

this year Kemba and Hendo will finally get the attention they have deserved outside or Charlotte.. (shoot, inside Charlotte too)

 

again- Steve Clifford was the biggest name we brought in, IMO.. Jefferson, Zeller are nice, but a competent coach that knows the "NBA Game" will be the difference

Don't show that statistic to Bobcats fans. They hate seeing factual information displaying how good Kemba is, because they're still wearing faded Raymond Felton and D.J. Augustin jerseys. 

 

I can't wait for a Biyombo fanboy to tell us Biz will be top 50 or top 100 soon.
