NBA Top 100 Players 2013-14: 70-61


Almost half way there and it’s getting much harder to project who will be good this next year.  Again here are the previous ones if you missed 80-71, 90-81, 100-91.

70- Jarrett Jack (Cleveland Cavaliers)

I’m not impressed by Dion Waiters and I think adding Jack behind Kyrie and alongside him in the backcourt could add up to some big stats.

69- Luol Deng (Chicago Bulls)

After struggling for most of last season I expect Deng will be much better this year after he looked to not be himself last year.

68- Mike Conley (Memphis Grizzlies)

What a great year last year to cement himself as a solid starter and maybe even as a potential all-star.  He will have to take another jump forward to make that happen.

67- Paul Millsap (Atlanta Hawks)

Not really sure where to put Sap in the top 100 and I really don’t like putting him in front of Favors but I think with what Atlanta has and nobody behind Sap he will probably average 18 and 10.

66- Al Horford (Atlanta Hawks)

Two Hawks players together and both in the starting frontcourt.

65- Manu Ginobli (San Antonio Spurs)

No matter how old this Argentinian gets, he still finds ways to be better than the competition.

64- DeAndre Jordan (LA Clippers)

This year he is due to have a big year as the defensive stopper that LA desperately needs inside.

63- Paul Pierce (Brooklyn Nets)

The Truth claims Brooklyn is the team in New York and I love the battle that begins for real this year.

62- Anderson Verajao (Cleveland Cavaliers)

Bynum is there but Verajao if he stays healthy is a constant contributor that changes the game in the positive for his team.

61- OJ Mayo (Milwaukee Bucks)

The new Buck is gonna be a huge upgrade from Ellis I think as he will provide the Bucks with consistent play and solid defense.
