Sports Illustrated’s basketball blog, “The Point Forward“, recently ranked the top 100 players in the NBA. Compiled by Rob Mahoney and Ben Golliver, ranks players for the 2013-14 NBA season. New Orleans Pelicans’ forward Anthony Davis finished 41st overall, and was designated by Golliver as having the best chance of significantly outperforming his ranking.
This ranking, for now, seems accurate,though a few players ahead of Davis will arguably have a lesser impact next season. More importantly, after a rookie season in which did not even approach his full potential, Davis is among the best players in the NBA. Expect Davis to rise up lists like these in future seasons, bringing the Pelicans with him.
