NBA 2013-2014 position rankings: shooting guards #31-40

After completing the full list of top 40 point guards in the league, I now move over to the other member of the backcourt: shooting guards. While there are probably a lot more “huge” names at the PG position, there are still tons of talented players that play SG. For now though, I’m going to look at the bottom 10 of this top 40 list of shooting guards. Here they are: 40. Marcus Thornton, Brooklyn … Continue reading

NBA 2013-2014 position rankings: point guards #1-10

This is the group of guys that stand out as the best point guards in the league. I think it’s fair to say that all of them performed on an elite level this past year. Some of the guys in this list might surprise you, especially the order, but stats don’t often lie. Here’s what the top ten looks like: 10. Eric Bledsoe, Phoenix Suns Stats: 17.7 PPG, 4.7 RPG, 5.5 APG Bledsoe is probably … Continue reading

NBA 2013-2014 position rankings: point guards #11-20

We’re now moving into the section of point guards that are very good, but not quite at the elite level yet. These are the guys that you’d be very happy to have on your team. But, at the same time, all teams are looking for an elite guy. Unfortunately, these guys weren’t quite at that level last year. Here are #11-20: 20. Deron Williams, Brooklyn Nets Stats: 14.3 PPG, 2.6 RPG, 6.1 APG For what … Continue reading

NBA 2013-2014 position rankings: point guards #21-30

My last post included my rankings for the #31-40 point guards in the NBA (according to me), and this one will include the next ten. The last group of players included many starters, proving that they were clearly very inefficient in their play to be included below some backups. The biggest surprise to some might be Derrick Rose at #32, but if you don’t understand why I did that, just read my last post and … Continue reading

NBA 2013-2014 position rankings: point guards #31-40

This is the beginning of a very long series that will delve into the top 40 NBA players at each position. Now, ranking players can be extremely controversial because you’re likely to have a different overall ranking list than 99.9% of people in the world, but I’m going to do it anyway. I based my rankings largely off of statistics (the best way to judge a player), using PPG, RPG, APG, BPG, SPG, and PER … Continue reading

LeBron/Melo sweepstakes: what the Rockets have to do

According to the many “rumors” out there, the Rockets seem to already have been eliminated from contention to sign Carmelo Anthony, but that could easily just be a rumor. Anthony has not formally denied any offers though, meaning he could technically still be weighing his options all the way across the board. As for LeBron James, it’s also very possible that James could end up there. It seems more likely that Chris Bosh, his former … Continue reading

LeBron/Melo sweepstakes: what the Lakers and Heat have to do

Of all the teams in the NBA, the Lakers and Heat have it the easiest. Surprisingly, both of the teams are below the salary cap right now and are in a good situation to pick up one of these two free agent studs. The Heat probably have the best chance of getting LeBron James, but the Lakers have a very good chance of getting Carmelo Anthony. And who knows, maybe if they miss out on … Continue reading

LeBron/Melo sweepstakes: what the Knicks need to do

The Knicks are in a very important offseason for multiple reasons. First, they have the possibility of losing their franchise star after Carmelo Anthony declined to opt into his last year of his contract and decided to enter free agency instead. The Knicks are also coming off of a terrible season that saw them finish 9th in the very weak Eastern Conference despite spending more money than most teams. After a mini blockbuster trade that … Continue reading

LeBron/Melo sweepstakes: what the Bulls need to do

With Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James both opting out of their contracts, the sweepstakes begin. Teams all around the league are scratching and clawing to get their hands on a star like these guys at whatever costs necessary. Some teams are basing their entire free agency on getting one of these guys, bringing in other assets to entice them or clearing cap space to give them a max contract. While most teams won’t have enough … Continue reading

NBA Finals predictions: rematch from last year

Conference Finals have finally ended, and the final series of basketball is upon us. It is the NBA Finals, and it just so happens to be a rematch from last year, pitting the defending champion Miami Heat against the San Antonio Spurs. As many basketball fans remember, the Spurs were just a minute away from winning the series in Game 6, but a last-second surge allowed them to get back into the game and win, … Continue reading
