Player values are officially set in stone now, so it’s time to update the Top 50. There aren’t too many drastic differences, but certainly there are some changes worth noting.
The biggest jump, once again, goes to Anthony Davis, who’s up 18 spots since the preseason edition, and Andre Drummond, who’s up an incredible 25 spots.

Maybe Deron Williams is creaky after he spent a part of October in a walking boot. Maybe he’s just no longer the All-Star we saw play in Utah. Regardless of the reason, he’s off to another slow start this season, and tonight he got stripped by the Magic’s No. 2 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, Victor Oladipo, before the rookie spun for a 360-degree dunk at the other end.

There aren’t too many drastic differences, but certainly there are some changes worth noting. Read More »
With the start of the 2013-14 NBA season rapidly approaching, we thought it only fair to share what makes each team so exciting. Ontologically speaking, all 30 teams deserve our eyeballs this season.
