*Based off THIS SEASON*
Here is Part 2 of My Top Ten Current NBA Players at Every Position!
It’s fine to disagree, but if you want to bash me, please read the full caption first. Keep in mind, this is based PRIMARILY on THIS season, so please don’t spam (but “ “ happened in the playoffs last year). Also, if a player has not played a game this season, they will not be ranked. This factors in individual stats, team success, impact on team, etc. ——————————————————
Chris Paul really has not been playing well compared to last year this season, and he’s on a struggling Rockets team. Last year I would have likely had him at 4, but this year his efficiency and scoring have dropped, and his lack of team success is not making up for his relatively low output (compared to guards I ranked above him). I think he can get back up to a top 5 point guard if he gets the Rockets back up to a top 5 seed in the west, but for now, he falls at number 9.
Devin Booker is arguably a point guard, but I think he’ll shift back to shooting guard if the Suns can get a point guard. That being said, he’s been a decent playmaker and scorer this season, and even though his team has a terrible record, the competition in the west is way ahead of the Suns, so it’d be unrealistic to expect more out of the team.
Jayson Tatum could honestly be lower than Gallinari based off this season alone, but I am cutting him a little slack considering the amount of talent he has around him.
Harrison Barnes has played great for the Mavericks, and is underrated in that very few people have talked about how the Mavericks’ season has turned around since he returned.
Lamarcus Aldridge has been decent this season, but it’s evident he’s having a harder time playing alongside DeMar DeRozan. In addition, the Spurs have been extremely inconsistent. And yes, Lamarcus Aldridge is playing center this season.
Thoughts? Anything you would change so far?
