There are no games to watch during the offseason, most fans They are all at the point of doing nothing. Some idle experts and the media have begun to rank current NBA players. This has almost become the NBA's annual tradition. But these rankings are very subjective. There is no clear measurement standard for each ranking. Obviously, there are differences. Everyone has different values and principles when analyzing players. But this is why competitive sports is so attractive. the reason.
Before giving our list of the top 50 stars in active service, we must first declare a certain criterion for this list, that is, injuries may definitely affect the ranking of some players. In Porzingi Before S. Oladipo and Durant step onto the court, the uncertainty in them cannot be ignored, so a healthy player may have the upper hand on this list.
First we give a list of players ranked 50-11:

14 John Wall (Washington Wizards)
13 Russell Westbrook (Houston Rockets)
12 Kyrie Irving (Brooklyn Nets)
11 Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers)
Here are the top ten players:
10 Paul George (Los Angeles Clippers)
Paul George made progress last season and ranked among the top three in the MVP voting, averaging a career-high 28 points per game. Now he will usher in a new challenge in his career, joining the Los Angeles Clippers with Kawhi Leonard. The Clippers have also become the biggest favorite to win the new season, which will also bring invisible to George pressure. George is an ideal All-Star teammate. His off the ball is very good. He can help share Leonard's workload. He can hit three-pointers. At the same time, the defense is also elite. He will help ensure that the Clippers are on both ends of the offense and defense. Success.
9 Anthony Davis (Los Angeles Lakers)
Even in a losing environment, Anthony Davis averaged 25.9 points, 12 rebounds and 2.4 per game. Block data is also a rare bright spot for the Pelicans, and his shooting percentage is 51.7%/33.1%/79.4%, which is also quite good. Davis will work with James in the new season. If all goes well, James will create more easy scoring opportunities and diverse offensive methods for Davis. Davis can open up the court space, or hold the ball to launch an offensive frontal. As for the second attack and eating cakes at the basket, he is also a world-class rim guard.
8 Nicola Jokic (Denver Nuggets)
Jokic is the least likely to be a star among the 50 players on this list. He is in The fact that the No. 42 pick in the last round of the 2014 draft was selected illustrates this problem. Jokic’s physical talent is not very good, even a little fat, but he has now become one of the most ornamental players in the NBA. He can send magical passes, open the field, and hold. With the ball advancing fast, he is the best offensive center in the NBA today, not one of them. He also proved his worth in this year's playoffs, eliminating those doubts about his defense, he averaged 20.1 points, 10.8 rebounds and 7.3 assists last season.
7 Joel Embiid (Philadelphia 76ers)
The gap between Embiid, Jokic and Davis is not obvious. I would prefer if I could Let the three of them say goodbye. However, Embiid's strong defensive ability has earned him extra points. His individual defensive ability is extremely strong, and even Anthony Davis is quite inferior. His defensive area is very extensive, and he is closest to Gobert in the league Defensive player. He is also the core of the 76ers' offensive end. He can force his opponents at the basket, either score or cause damage, get to the free throw line, and more importantly, his passing has improved last season.
6 Kevin Durant (Brooklyn Nets)
The injury of the Achilles tendon rupture affected Durant’s ranking, because this injury is difficult in history. Recovered, we have seen the impact of this injury on players in players such as Cousins, Wesley Matthews, and Rudy Gay. Those talented NBA players have been injured. It's not exactly the same. Even players who are strong like Kobe Bryant have not been able to get rid of the impact of this injury. It can be said that before the injury, Durant was the best player in the NBA today. His height, shooting range, and technical injuries will have a relatively small impact, but it is still unknown how much his explosiveness and defense can recover. For this reason, we temporarily put him in the sixth place.
5 James Harden (Houston Rockets)
Harden ranked second in last season’s MVP voting. He averaged 36.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game last season. During Paul’s recovery period, Harden led the Rockets solo. He was 44.2%. The shooting percentage of /36.8%/87.9% is also very good, and can continue to get to the free throw line. His pick-and-roll offense, back three-pointers and foul-making skills are very special, which allows him to lock in the top five players in the NBA.
4 Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks)
As the new regular season MVP, Antetokounmpo has become a superstar in the league, even if it has not yet developed a stable His jump shot ability, his extraordinary height and wingspan, strength and athletic ability also put tremendous pressure on the opponent's defense. He can use speed and European steps to get rid of opponents and directly attack the basket. He had the league's highest number of dunks last season, with a shooting percentage of 57.8%, and he also ranked second in the voting for the best defensive player of the year.
3 Kawhi Leonard (Los Angeles Clippers)
After helping the Toronto Raptors win the championship, Leonard has established himself as one of the top three active players in the league position. He led the Toronto Raptors with a not-so outstanding lineup to the championship, and in the process was like Michael Jordan possessing him. He is a perfect combination of strength, shooting and athleticism. He is also a top ball defensive player, and now he is home.
2 Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors)
I firmly believe that one day Stephen Curry will be the first person on this list, because LeBron- James' inevitable decline has finally begun. In today's NBA league, no player can distort the opponent's defensive system like Curry. He is the league's top off-the-ball threat, and his ability to shoot the ball is unmatched. He can always use a tiny gap to make shots and make shots when the opponent is close to the defense. His ball-handling ability is also one of the best in the league today. All of this determines that he is the second-ranked player on this list. We can see from the fact that the Raptors always have three players to defend him in the Finals. How influential is.
1 LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers)
Last season was a weird season for LeBron James, and we would rather treat it as an accident. The idea that James is declining is reasonable. He is no longer a good defensive player, his jump shots are no longer as stable as before, and his athletic ability is showing signs of decline, but even so, he is still The first person in the league. James' strength, ability to organize offense and ability to read the game are unquestionable. He can pass the ball accurately from unimaginable angles while crushing smaller or slower defensive players on the outside. Although he still occupies the throne of the NBA's active player, but there is already a risk of losing it.
