Love the ESPN Zion Williamson hype train. He's good, but he is at least 5-10 spots too high. Better than PG13 & Jamal Murray? Puh-lease.

this list is total trash. damn ESPN. its like they just googled players and put whoever they thought was good at the top

There aren't that many mistakes honestly. The big ones are Doncic ahead of KD, Zach LaVine is too low, and DeRozan is too low.

Level 29

AD being 2 isn't a big mistake? He's maybe top 5 but definitely not even top 3

How is Andre Drummond not a top 100 player, hes a top 50 or better player on this list

I only got 20 :(

Also, I feel like people only get Seth Curry because of his brother. Even if Steph retires after some years, people are still going to try Curry on future quizzes out of desperation

What a horrid list. As soon as I typed Andre Drummond and it wasn't accepted, I'm like...man...ESPN...what kind of list IS this?

Leads the league in rebounds 4 out of the last 6 years...not even in top 100. Gross. Stopped quiz immediately. 0 points.

Drummond has been one of the most overrated players in the NBA for some time now. Could he now be underrated? I don't know. The Pistons traded him for essentially nothing just to dump salary.

Sometimes, rebounds are an empty stat, since so many are uncontested. A better question: Does the player improve team rebounding when he's on the floor? I don't know the answer in Drummond's case.

Yeah, rebounds are weird because if the team overall stays the same, they mean basically nothing

Wow. No Knicks on the list. Come to think of it, though, who's their best player right now? Randle? Barret?

Julius Randle has definitely been a top-50 player to start the season

I knew ESPN lists were wack but this is crazy. AD at 2? Jamal Murray 21? MARCUS SMART 37? WTF is Draymond doing on this list? Bertans and Anunoby above guys like Bogdanovic and Conley (not a Jazz fan BTW), Derozan at 82? No Drummond? I could go on and on
