TOP FIVE PLAYERS AT EACH POSITION

A look at the top players at the many different positions in the NBA.

The NBA has moved almost completely to a positionless league where you just try to get your best five on the floor. Hell, the Rockets were playing a 6’5″ center last year and the Lakers had a 6’9″ point guard. Here is a fun ranking, not too serious, of how I have the best players ranked at each position, including those that play multiple spots.

Point Guard:

  1. Luka Doncic, Mavericks
  2. Stephen Curry, Warriors
  3. Damian Lillard, Blazers
  4. Trae Young, Hawks
  5. Chris Paul, Suns

  2. Jimmy Butler, Heat
  3. Devin Booker, Suns
  4. Donovan Mitchell, Jazz
  5. Bradley Beal, Wizards
