I honestly thought I clicked on the wrong list when Wiggins name came up first.

Optimistically, this stuff motivates Lauri and, especially Zach to improve defensively!

I'm not the biggest Zach fan, but 's no way that there's 89 players I'd rather have.

I don't have the time or inclination to do this well but this would be my knee jerk ranking of the Bulls top players.

Zach: ~40
Lauri & Porter: ~60
Thad : ~80

Andrew Wiggins making this list means it is worthless.

Yeah, I'm going to be honest, he has his faults but that's a major disrespect.

He is the best player on the Bulls roster, it's as simple as that. Is the he the most valuable, considering what Lauri could become? Perhaps not, but as it currently stands, he is the best player.
Why so serious?

350 NBA players should be upset they're ranked below Andrew Wiggins.

Zach's the hipster NBA fans choice to hate to prove that they value the right things and are not suckers who overrate flare and spectacular plays. I think its gotten to the point where he's underrated.

Given some of the names on this list so far...

And some Phoenix Suns players who will be named in the top 50 of that list...

I'm confused how there could be ANY Suns players in the top 50 after they won a whopping 19 games last year :lol: :banghead:

Best current talent yes. Best player, no unless your counting raw production.
I sort of like where SI is going since they are considering whether these top 100 players' production are translating to wins.
Otto Porter is clearly our best player esp considering the 15 game sample.
No one dare beats 50/50/90 on 18pts, 60%+ TS statline while being the #1 defender on the team.
If he did it nearly for a whole season, he would eclipse prime Deng and bested only by prime Rose and Butler.
Lauri placed higher makes sense since he didnt waste 5 yrs (sophmore avging 19/9 is way more impressive than a sg 24/5) and next yr will tell whether he is a winning player or not.

It's not where our guys start, it's where they finish!

I feel like our guys aren't going to be stat monsters because there are 7 guys who will share the load across most stat categories.

In fact, he's now so underrated that he's starting to become overrated.

Wiggins at 100is fine. By no means does he live up to his contract or the hype he had. He also doesn’t live up to his just god given skill, but it isn’t as if he is Blakeney or Felicio. He is #25 in salary in the league which is just mind boggling bad but his production is still of some value. As remarkable as a bust that he is he still isn’t Markelle Fultz.
