  • SI: Top 100 NBA Players of 2020

    It's a weird list but here are the Raptors:

    80. Serge Ibaka
    42. Marc Gasol
    28. Kyle Lowry
    24. Pascal Siakim
    Playing against Pascal Siakam requires a different level of attention—a constant, dialed-in, head-on-a-swivel investment that is mentally exhausting. Tracking him seems like a full-time job. When an opponent would attempt to rotate on defense, they might move too late for fear of how Siakam might cut. If a potential offensive rebound ricochets into open space, opponents might not even be able to pursue it because chasing Siakam in transition takes a higher priority. It’s a tough lot, keeping tabs on a player who seems to be everywhere. And even if all goes perfectly, the reward is then dealing with one of the most surprising shot creators in the game. What earned Siakam the Most Improved Player award last season wasn’t his energy or his defense. It was the emergence of a viable one-on-one game from a puff of smoke. Last season, Siakam was only slightly less efficient in isolation than Kyrie Irving and LeBron James, per Synergy Sports. He was more efficient working from the post (on far lighter usage) than Joel Embiid and Nikola Jokić. If Siakam is really this damn good at attacking creating for himself—revelations which vaulted him from outside our Top 100 last year all the way to 24 this year—who’s to say what he can’t do next?

    Klay Thompson, the best two guard in the league is #58? lol. This dude is so underrated. He should be in the top 20 easily.

      You realize this is a ranking of 2019-20, and he's expected to be injured until May?
      It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

        What has Wiggins done to be in the top 100? A guy like Bogdan Bogdanovic just crushed it at FIBA and has won a Euroleague MVP in the past. Wiggins coasts around looking like he'd rather be doing something else.
