LeBron, Davis, Jokic, Giannis, Kawhi, Harden, Luka, Butler...not that I would necessarily rank him next, but is it crazy to say that he's in the conversation with anyone else outside of those 8? Ok, Curry if he's healthy, Durant if he returns to form...that's 10. After that, I think you have what, Tatum, Mitchell, Gobert, Lillard, Caruso, guys like that? Why not Bam?
Some name changes as ever, but nah, I don't think it's crazy to consider Bam a guy getting close to All-NBA status.
Totally forgot about Paul and Embiid initially, threw them in there now, wasn’t meant to be a comprehensive list of guys on that tier though, just examples that Bam could be favorably compared to.
Who else would you add though?
My top tier going into next season is (7):
Giannis, LeBron, AD, Kawhi, Harden, Luka, Curry?
Next up (9):
Tatum, Butler, Embiid, Durant?, PG13, Jokic, Gobert, Lillard, Towns
Then I'd put Bam towards the top of the 3rd group (still not in order) (18):
Jrue, Middleton, Lowry, Siakam, Kemba, Sabonis, Bam, Simmons, Irving, Vucevic, Beal, Trae, Murray, Mitchell, Nurkic, CP3, Booker, Draymond
