PFO NBA Roundtable – Ranking the Current Top 25 Players

Disclaimer: This is meant to be an evaluation of players as of their current status and talent level. This is not an overall asset value, a fantasy draft based on the remainder of their careers, etc. Contract, age, etc. are not meant to be as heavily factored as much as considering this season: who is a better player in a vacuum?

The lists were compiled as only Top 25’s, but a total of 36 players were named in all. Players left off of a person’s list were given a ranking of 36 to balance out the field.
