Any list that says Luka is only the 10th best player in the NBA has to be taken with a huge grain of salt. Plain and simple.
Any list that has Julius Randle as the 21st best player is not a list to take seriously. Also they need to flip Joel Embiid at 3 with Giannis at 7.
i can't tell if you think randle is highly underrated or highly overrated. 'cause anyone who watched him play when it mattered this season could easily argue the latter
randle filled the 2014 joakim noah role on this thibs offense. run it through him because there aren't better options. and the knicks offense, like that bulls offense, sucked. randle's fringe MVP consideration stems from 3 factors:
-heavy minutes, boosting his raw stat line
-team defense, boosting the team's record
-absence of team offensive talent, boosting his role
randle 2019: 25/10/4, 60% TS
randle 2021: 23/10/6 57% TS
why is randle being lauded this season but barely noticed when he was with the pelicans? his ability to take it to a larger stage combined with the reasons above
