    Lowry at 18, right behind John Wall.
    At this point Lowry is just being ranked behind Wall out of stupidity or based on anecdotal evidence. Yes, Wall matches up really well with Lowry one on one but their stats are just not even comparable. Wall is inefficient, he's had a negative or mediocre net rating almost every year of his career, never broken .140 WS/48, etc. He gets a lot of assists but also turns it over like a madman and defensively he's a bit overrated.

    Wall isn't even better than last year's DeRozan if you're looking at statistical evidence, let alone Kyle.

    SLAM's top 50 list had Lowry @ 21 and DD @ 24.

    I don't agree with that list at all. But it is what it is.

    TNT's Inside The NBA is also doing a top 25 players list. It's going to be interesting where they put Lowry and DeRozan.

    #NBArank 21-30

    21: Jimmy Butler

    22: Al Horford

    23: LaMarcus Aldridge

    24: DeAndre Jordan

    25: Paul Millsap

    26: C.J. McCollum

    27: Mike Conley

    28: Kevin Love

    29: Isaiah Thomas

    30: DeMar DeRozan
    How TF did CJ McCollum get ranked so high so quickly? And Mike Conley is now one of those guys who are perennially underrated to the point that they're now overrated. Horford at 22 is also too high, IMO.

    My conspiracy theory is that the powerful player agents have some "influence" into what the reporters write, in return for scoops and access, possibly trying to justify those huge contracts they negotiated for second tier stars.

    He was #LOL
    Last year he was #263, 6 spots below Biyombo and 9 spots below James Johnson.

    It's a joke.

    What number was Anthony Bennett this year?

    Even as far as meaningless things go, ranking players outside of maybe the top 15-20 is pretty much a waste of time.

    You know this list is garbage when Eric Gordon is 30 spots above Rudy Gay and Tobias Harris. Brandon Knight, Kenneth Faried, and Zach Randolph are all ahead of them too lol.

    Do you think they did this before the season started? Are they able to edit it for, I don't know.....say, DeMar?

    Edit: Just saw 40-50...no DeMar yet.

    Carroll still living off his reputation in that last season with the Hawks. Hopefully other NBA GMs view the self-proclaimed JYD 2.0 in the same way (BC: I'm talking to you.)
