Same rankings as Twix. But replace Butler with Herro.
For a long time it gave me nightmares,witnessing an injustice like that.It’s a constant reminder of just how unfair this world can be.I can still hear them taunting him, Silly Rabbit tricks are for kids.I mean why couldn’t they just give him some cereal?

On the same tier with Blake, Beal, Irving, Kemba, so between 3rd and 7th(not counting Snek and Dipo)

Everyone that voted before Kawhi went back west may want to update their vote.

To me, he is clearly worse than Giannis, Embiid and KD if he comes back reasonably well, he is worse and older than Kyrie imo as well, but not by much

I'd have him 5th atm, obviously Beal, Walker, Griffin and Oladipo if healthy are close, Gordon Hayward if he goes back to Utah's Hayward too

Anywhere from 5th-10th is fair really, since KD is out, he could compete to be 3rd best in the East with Kyrie kinda this season

Then there are young guys who could reach his level, Pascal Siakam, Ben Simmons, Trae Young, Lauri Markkanen, Zach LaVine, Caris LeVert, Jayson Tatum in a 1-2 years
