ESPN’s fun ranking of the top-100 players in the NBA is chugging right along, and today
the network unveiled its second Warrior: Klay Thompson.
At #19, Klay finds himself in elite company, directly ahead of All-Stars Gordon Hayward and Kyle Lowry, and right behind fellow stars Damian Lillard and DeMarcus Cousins. He dropped three spots from last year’s ranking, but that’s due to the rise of players like Nikola Jokic and Rudy Gobert — not any regression from Thompson.
ESPN has now revealed
its rankings for players 11-100, and three Warriors still remain on the board. Statistically, one out of every three NBA teams should have a top-10 player. According to ESPN, the Dubs have three all on their own.
Each team should have one player in the top-30; Golden State has four in the top-20. It’s becoming pretty clear why people say this team is unfair.
The top-10 should be unveiled shortly. Where do you think Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green will end up?
