Default SB Nation top 20 player rankings for 2017

2017-ieji: Valan?i?nas ? tarp 20 geriausi? NBA ?aid?j? / Naujienos - Basketnews.lt

Dunno if someone can translate this and I strongly suggest to update it as I don't have much Info about it, but I thought it would be a nice discussion looking in the future especially when we aren't sure tank or not to tank this year.

SB Nation made a list with players that assumed to be in a top 20 by the year of 2017 as it goes like
1)K.Durant
2)L.James
3)A.Drummond
4)R.Westbrook
5)D.Rose
6)K.Irving
7)A.Davis
8)A.Wiggins
9)J.Harden
10)B.Griffin
11-17)No Info about it
18) Jonas Valanciunas!
19)-
20)J.Wall

Noticable players that JV left behind in the list: L.Alridge(21), C.Anthony(33), R.rondo(34). K.Bryant(79)

Same draft players that it is said JV will surpass. E.Kanter(52), T.Thompson(55)

What you guys think, Can JV go further,could any other raptor be a top 20 by 2017 (Rudy, Demar,Lowry). Personally I could see R.Gay taking that 19 spot.

Griffin is so overrated.

Drummond seems a bit high based off of one year.

Drummond is easily the most overrated prospect in the league, I also think alot of centers (including JV) are going to be better than Brook Lopez (#17) by then.

Julius Randle was something like number 14 as well, which is really high for someone who will only be 22/23 by then. Guess people believe he could be an elite big man.

If it makes you feel any better, I still think he can be an elite 3 and D player or even star wing player.

He'll be 23 this season, so I'm not exactly holding my breath that he will dominate in anything. It will be interesting to see though how many years the organization will wait to see what they have because as of right now, all I'm waiting for is for him to become.........

It is painful to think about. Wish we could go back in time. Even if there are concerns about his mental make-up, ask yourself what this guy could return in a trade.

Davis will be ahead of Drummond once 2017 arrives.

Don't like the list but aside from the fact that it's very dumb to even make lists like these, (because of new players, injuries and other factors) it's still fun to see.

Don't think so. I see Gay at #90, Ross at #93. Nice. They have basically this whole team as barley starters in the 26-31 age range.

Guess you may as well light the fuse now.
