Hello everybody and welcome back to the Mid-American page. It’s not even basketball season and I am already heated about the NBA. Specifically their “Top 10 Players” rankings. With that being said, let’s get into this.
I’m sure a lot of you all are thinking, “I don’t see anything wrong with this list,” but, in my honest opinion, this list is bullshit. In what world is Steph and Harden better than KD? Yes, they can shoot and handle the ball, but imagine having an almost seven foot tall version of them. Oh wait, there is. KD is a better scorer than both of them, better on defense, and can guard every single position on the court. There’s is issue number one.
Second issue there is a monumental snub in Karl-Anothy Towns. Towns is one of the youngest and the premier big in the league. Don’t get me wrong, Embiid is good, but not better than Towns. Towns stretches the floor, has slick post moves, strong, and is one of the leagues best rim protectors.
The last issue, that I think is huge, is that Kawhi is better than Giannis. Yes, Kawhi selflessly sat out all last season in an attempt to get out of San Antonio. Kawhi is another player who does everything and can do that with anybody on the team. Giannis is still developing his game, and will be better one day. However, I said one day.
What do you think of the list? Let us know down in the comments! Thank you for spending a part of your Friday with me and the rest of the Mid-American crew. As always, stay tuned for more fresh daily content.
