SI.com Ranks Anthony Davis as the…

Davis

SI.com ranked the top 100 NBA players heading into the 2015-16 season. The biggest question for most is where would Anthony Davis end up. He’s often considered the best young talent in the NBA and the next big thing, expected to take over the torch once the LeBron James’ of the world get past their prime.

Well, they ranked him third. Kind of. Here’s what was said about Davis:

The tradeoff in giving Kevin Durant the benefit of the doubt as the No. 2 player in our rankings is that it underrates Davis. Fit this one with an asterisk for upward mobility; no other player in the NBA can quite match Davis’s plausible upside as a still-growing 22-year-old MVP candidate. It seems only a matter of time until Davis becomes the consensus choice for the best in the game–a reality that could come to fruition as soon as this season. For now, we prefer LeBron James and a healthy Durant. For tomorrow, we unquestionably prefer Davis. [SI.com]

Davis is up one spot from last year’s rankings. Also making the list was Nerlens Noel (No. 97), Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (No. 85), Brandon Knight (No. 79), Eric Bledsoe (No. 33), DeMarcus Cousins (No. 14) and John Wall (No. 13).

    I can imagine a line up of Wall, Bledsoe, MKG, Davis, and Cousins.

    A lot of long-suffering Pelicans fans are gonna be
    very, very happy about him being at the top of that list.
    Contrary to popular belief, there’s a lot of basketball
    knowledge and love in NOLA, and the fans there
    definitely deserve a couple servings of CHAMPIONSHIP
    for their years of support of and derision from the
    NBA in New Orleans. As dey say down’ere… I’M IN!

    Having Davis as a Wildcat is going to pay dividends for a long, long time.
