NBA Roundtable Discussion: How Do You Rank the Best Players in the Game?

September 1st, 2010 by Bryan Toporek Leave a reply »
Two weeks ago, a Bleacher Report writer named Joseph Edmondson came to me with a pretty huge idea he wanted to tackle: How do B/R writers evaluate players in the NBA?

After a few e-mails, Joseph went on his way and recruited six B/R writers to discuss the task at hand: himself, myself,  Karl, Harrison Moore, Steven Resnick,  and Elliott Battle.

Joseph came up with a wide range of questions about player rankings—everything from what stats we consider most to rank players, how important championships and popularity are for rankings, and whether a great player on a bad team deserves to be punished.  

Naturally, we didn't agree on everything.  Some of us think Rajon Rondo currently qualifies as a Top 10 NBA player.  Some of us definitely, definitely don't (where's that jump shot?).

So, sit back, relax, and enjoy our NBA writers roundtable about how to best evaluate NBA talent, both past and present.
