Clippers Among 2019-20 Top-100 Rankings 

Post#1 » by Ranma » Tue Sep 10, 2019 6:02 am

With 3 players already in the bottom half of Sports Illustrated's top-100 rankings, the Clippers have 5 of the league's most coveted players on their roster along with Shams and Green being notable snubs. Adding Iguodala would bring that total to at least 6 with Shamet making a strong case for himself to be included.

JaMychal Green, Clippers: The stretch in Green’s game feels more advantageous now than ever. A few years of spacing out offense to the three-point line has helped him settle into the role, settling his jumper and showing when to drive. Green is quietly a pretty crucial player for the Clippers this season. His contributions also might be too quiet for the purposes of the Top 100.

Landry Shamet, Clippers: If given the reps, it wouldn’t be all that surprising to see Shamet become one of the top three-point shooters in the game over the next few years. His particular brand of shooting tends to scale well; anyone who’s able to live in the mid-40s, percentage-wise, while taking shots on the move can act as a system all their own. We just need to see that side of Shamet’s game leveraged a bit further (or the rest of his game filled out a bit more) to qualify as one of the league’s top players.

It is ridiculous that Giannis is #1 and Kawhi is #2. Kawhi beat Giannis in the ECF and these idiots still think Giannis is better than him

I think Giannis is so overrated that he shouldn't be in top 5 if KD was healthy. His lack of shooting, his attack the paint like a bull with overrated playmaking like he was a Lebron is too big flaws. Defensively he is no Leonard healthy or Draymond.

ESPN, SI are silly they are talking about Giannis like he is 20,8 years younger than Kawhi, not only 3 years, 7 seasons without much better shooting than Simmons! Kawhi coming from his worst injury of his career, one good leg dominated him easily. This is disrespect to Kawhi, Lebron, Curry...

Real top 5 imo:

Leonard
KD(when healthy)
Lebron
Curry
AD

Love Kawhi, but I am not going to hate on Giannis. The guy is a phenomenal talent. KD is a great shooter and playmaker, but he will NEVER be anything close to the defender that Giannis is. Giannis is one of the rare talents that has all the skills needed to get the rare quadruple double or even achieve the first ever quintuple double. The guy is one of the best two way players in the game.

The Raptors beating the Bucks had more to do with a better overall roster and bench production.

What has KD defence to do with Giannis being better than great alltime scorer like KD? Lebron is worse defender than KD but no one thinks Giannis is Lebron level....

Kawhi dominated Giannis while injured there is no excuse for that. Bucks had the better roleplayers,team offence all season. Middleton,Brogdon,Lopez etc helped him win 60 games. Kawhi could trust only Siakam scoring help every game.

You cant reward for him potential that is not the way you become nr.1 player. Giannis is so far another Harden,Westbrook regular season hero who doesnt win his team PO series. Pistons,Celtics wins are not the goal.

Instead of skipping games, I'd like to see us try keeping everyone at 30 mpg or less

more experimenting with combinations
more maintenance and development minutes for the back of the bench
