Top 15 NBA Players:
10. Paul George
George’s 2018-19 campaign was nothing short of remarkable.  He was a beast on both sides of the court, and surpassed Russell Westbrook as the best player & leader of the Thunder.  If it weren’t for both Giannis’ and Harden’s ridiculously amazing seasons, George would have been the league MVP.  His defense is elite and has been for some time, and his scoring has gotten better and better.  He fits well on any team, as he is comfortable taking a backseat, as well as taking over games.  With the Clippers this year, Kawhi will obviously be the man, but George is going to have a huge role as well.

Should PG be higher, lower, or is he just right?🏀💭

Top 15 NBA Players:
11. Damian Lillard
Lillard has been one of the least appreciated superstars in the game for quite some time.  It’s great to see him get the attention he deserves while leading the Blazers deep into the playoffs.  Lillard can score from all 3 levels, and is a solid playmaker.  Defensively he isn’t quite a liability, but he isn’t great by any means.  Still though, in the modern NBA, offense is much more valuable than defense.  Lillard also possesses what some call the ‘clutch gene,’ as no moment seems to big for him.  He legitimately put OKC into a full blown rebuild with one shot.  Lillard is a gamer, but he isn’t higher because he just doesn’t have that two-way aspect of his game, and he doesn’t elevate a team quite like other elite primarily offensive players (Curry, Harden).

Top 15 NBA Players:
12. Nikola Jokic
Jokic really came into his own this year, leading the Nuggets to a huge level of success.  For a team at this early of a point in their process, getting to within one game of the WCF is a huge win.  Jokic was the lone all-star on this Nuggets team, so most of the credit can be rightfully given to him.  He really is a special talent.  Offensively, he can score, but the best part of his game is his playmaking ability.  The Joker is hands down the best passing big man in the world, which is an extraordinarily helpful thing to have on a contender.  Defensively he isn’t amazing, but some of this can be contributed to his lack of athleticism, which is also another obvious hole in his game.

The Rockets definitely got better by trading for Westbrook.  The only player on their current roster who they had to give up was Paul, who is old and has one of the worst contracts in the league.  They replace a ball dominant guard with another ball dominant guard, but at least they won’t have 3 on the floor at the same time.  Russ is getting better at taking a backseat, which he is definitely going to need to do with Harden this season, and this could lead to a ton of success.  Keeping their depth while getting rid of Paul is a win, and more star power is always what Daryl Morey is searching for.  This may be an unpopular opinion, but Houston easily won this trade. 🚀🚀

Top 15 NBA Players:
13. Russell Westbrook
Everyone knows the problems with Westbrook; he’s inefficient, a bad shooter, and his decision making isn’t great either.  However, his talent is undeniable.  I don’t think he will ever become a truly great shooter, but that’s not necessarily horrible, as he impacts the game in so many ways.  He has grown into an elite level playmaker, and when he is playing pass-first, his team does much better.  We saw that a lot this year, when he kind of let Paul George do his thing.  Continuing on his current trajectory of moving more towards a great second option will make him a much more valuable player.

Top 15 NBA Players:
14. Klay Thompson
Klay’s case as one of the greatest players in the world is kind of overshadowed by having had such great teammates.  Individually though, he has a case to be the second greatest shooter of all time, only behind Curry.  Klay is the perfect 3 and D player, and that isn’t even an exaggeration.  He is simply knockdown offensively, and has the ability to step up in big moments and make big plays.  Defensively, he can guard on ball extremely well, due to his big size for a shooting guard.  Klay isn’t all that flashy, and isn’t always in the spotlight, but he gets it done at a high level on both sides of the court.

Top 15 NBA Players:
15. Karl-Anthony Towns
Towns has been a stud since he came into the league, but last year was definitely his career year.  He scores at will, which is especially impressive for a center in the modern NBA.  What sets him apart from other centers scoring wise is his willingness and ability to shoot 3 pointers.  In a league filled with 3 point shots, having a center be able to hit them comfortably really spaces the floor.  Towns’ rebounding is also consistently overlooked, as not too many people realize he is a legitimate double-double machine.  A player with this many physical gifts should honestly be higher on the list, except he doesn’t have the greatest mentality.  If he can develop that killer’s attitude and put up a little more effort defensively, he can be a true superstar.  Being stuck on an irrelevant team like Minnesota isn’t good for his career, so requesting a trade would be in his best interest.

Last years’ Clippers squad was comprised of elite role players, and after adding two superstars they are the best team in the NBA.  LA will roll out a starting five of Beverly, PG, Harkless, Kawhi, and Zubac, with Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell coming off the bench.  They have 3 of the best defenders in the world in that starting 5 (Beverly, PG, Kawhi) and also the two best bench players in the league.  This team was seemingly built to just add a superstar or two because they already had all the pieces around them.  Discussions between them and the Lakers is ludicrous, because their star power is equal, and the Clips have the best supporting talent in the world.  It’s a great day to be a Clippers fan, as overnight they have turned themselves into the league’s best team.
