    You sound foolish! #1 Anthony Davis is IN HIS PRIME NOW. How far did so called Prime Pels advance in the playoffs?
    #2 The 76rs were title contenders when the Hawks beat them in the 2nd round.

    kinda hate doing these lists. unpopular opinions i'm going with are not ranking kawhi for next year and having harden over luka til luka proves it. jokic can be higher too he was better last year and still young. Curry should be ahead of bron at this point in their careers(if kawhi was healthy he be too), top 3 is in their own tier. Then cutoff for next tier is better than lillard. I'm not taking trae over ad yet and not sure he's even next up. Paul george and yes jimmy butler have good cases with their 2 way play.

    durant
    giannis
    curry
    bron
    harden
    jokic
    luka
    embiid
    lillard
    ad.

    1) Giannis
    2) Durant
    3) Lebron
    4) Jokic
    5) Luka
    6) Curry
    7) AD
    8) Embiid
    9) Harden
    10) Trae

    I left Kawhi off my list due to injury and will likely miss most of the season if not all.

    He defeated the 76ers who was a Top 3 team in the East last year. If the 76ers didn't choke in that series they would have a good shot at the title last year. Last years 76ers were better than that Davis/Cousins/Rondo Team that Trae defeated and the fact remains, Trae lead his team the Conference Finals while Davis never made it past the 2nd round as the Lead star. You can't deny this.

    And we are talking about who's the TOP 10 coming into this season. As I recall Davis was injured and We haven't seen him come back yet. So I choose Trae over a hobbled Davis coming into the season

    Absolutely. He's already taken his team further than Luka who is always talked about and the star of his draft class. And again, he beat a quality team last year. Hope he keeps balling. He's got my respect.

    Anthony Davis needs to play games. Kawhi also will be missing the majority of this upcoming season so he can not be ranked.
    Trae led his team to a conference final appearance. No one expected them to beat the Knicks, the Sixers, and almost beat the Bucks. Do I need to remind you that Trae scored 48 points against the champs? Ok then!!!

    Interesting. The current MVP didn't top anyone's list. Didn't come in 2nd on anyone's list either. Seen him around 3-4-5-6 on most people's list.

    Who cares if they're a top 3 team in the East? They're not an elite team, which is why Trae can shoot below average and still win with his team. This is why the East has been garbage for as long as it has. Lebron was able to go to 9 straight finals in the East and yet has a negative record when he gets there. Making the ECF is not the same as the WCF.

    Dame also made the WCF while AD didn't until he joined Lebron, doesn't make Dame better. When they played each other, AD destroyed him.

    Sixers are not serious title contenders, they're losers. Their two best players include a guy that can't stay healthy and has gotten bullied in the PS, as well as his Robin who gets PTSD during the 4th quarter.
