Ranking Every NBA Player In The League

0
409
ESPN

There are 451 NBA players that are currently on a roster according to Basketball-Reference. Of those 451 players, 1 has not played an NBA game yet (Joel Embiid), 2 are retiring (Kobe Bryant and Richard Jefferson), and 1 other had unfortunately passed away (Bryce Dejean-Jones). That leaves 447 players to rank in the NBA.

Everyone has their own preference on how they rank players. At Basketball Society, we wanted to rank each and every player in the NBA in order of how good they are right now at this point. Future potential is not included in the assessment. This wasn’t easy at all as it is very tough comparing NBA players of different positions.

Below is our full list. Hit us up @BBallSociety_ on Twitter if you want to debate our rankings.
