ESPN’s ranking of the top 100 players in the NBA has finally concluded, and let’s just say that the Golden State Warriors were well represented. Really, really, really well represented.
NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant led the Dubs, earning the distinction of ESPN’s 2nd-best player, behind only LeBron James. The heart, soul, and face of the franchise, Stephen Curry, wasn’t far behind, as he was ranked 4th. Finally, do-everything power forward Draymond Green rounded out the top spots, as he was ranked 10th.
For the Warriors, the list is full of accomplishments. Only two teams had a player ranked higher than the second Warrior on the list, and only eleven teams had a player ranked higher than the fourth Dub. Long story short, the Warriors dominated ESPN’s list, just like they dominated the 2017 NBA playoffs.
Of course, everyone views things differently, and everyone will find something to quibble with on this list. What do you think of how the Warriors graded out?
