30- Nick Young (Los Angeles Lakers)
If Lakers want to compete Nick Young will need to bring his potential to the table and with Kobe basically coaching him we will see if Nick is mentally strong enough. Yes 30 is high but don’t criticize me til next year. Remember Trevor Ariza? Yeah as a Laker maybe…
29- Damian Lillard (Portland Trailblazers)
Lillard has a similar year to last year with more consistency.
28- Roy Hibbert (Indiana Pacers)
He needs to have a great season so the Pacers can take down the Heat.
27- Robin Lopez (Brooklyn Nets)
Needs to rebound and won’t be considered the best center in the league ever without that.
26- Gordon Hayward (Utah Jazz)
Hayward will be the Jazz’s best player next year and expect Paul George type numbers of 17, 5, 5 and 2 steals.
25- Anthony Davis (New Orleans Pelicans)
If you watched him in the USA scrimmage game you know he is going to be good this year.
24- Marc Gasol (Memphis Grizzlies)
This is the type of center that knows how the game needs to be played and is smart even though he isn’t as athletic.
23- Dwight Howard (Houston Rockets)
I’ve never thought D12 was as good as advertised and putting him in the top 20 would be too much in my eyes.
22- Dwayne Wade (Miami Heat)
He was beat up all year but turned it on when it was most important. Expect another year of transitioning with a diminishing vertical.
21- Kawhi Leonard (San Antonio Spurs)
I was yelling his name when the Jazz were drafting 12th and he was still on the board and was highly disappointed when his name wasn’t called.. He’s a quiet assassin.
