Top 100 NBA Players Extravaganza: 2019 review & 2020 preview
On today's show, Ben Golliver welcomes Sports Illustrated writer Rob Mahoney for an expansive conversation about their Top 100 NBA Players lists. They start by taking a look back at last year. Who were the biggest hits (Curry, Kyrie) and the biggest misses (Kawhi, Jokic) in the top 25? Which breakout players (Pascal, Harrell) caused heartburn? Which snubs deserve apologies? Were they proven correct in the great debates over Devin Booker and Brandon Ingram? Then, they pivot to a preview of the Top 100 of 2020. How many players are in the mix for the top spot (LeBron, Kawhi and...), how many of last year's rookies (Luka and...) deserve to make their debuts, and where would Zion Williamson rank if he was eligible?
