    I like how they have Dyson (#470) still listed as a Hornet.

    "I'm not going to allow my putative owner to answer that question, this is an NBA related press conference. Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell have collectively sung their praises of Tom and if uh ESPN has a problem with that tell Mr. Skipper to call me at my office."

    Tch. Bobby Simmons. Dude used to be a player people clamoured after, talking about sign him. Dude's #459.
    Tune in on Fridays at 12 noon for Sport-a-Facts with Ro Brown and Wednesdays at 1pm for Sports Revolution to hear me speak my mind on all things Saints and Pelicans related and more.

    Only on WBOK 1230 AM.

    Feel free to PM me for more details.

    I see he dropped from 299 last year to 328 this year. Funny twitter comment, though.

    How are they ranking guys who has logged 0mins in the NBA? Not thrilled with rankings altogether however I fail to see the point of putting rookies on the list.

    It's like preseason power rankings in any sport really. Not really useful and no one in the sport cares.

    Still strikes up conversation which prompts fiends like us to go to the site and see just what meaningless ranking they label people with.

    Agreed.

    However I will say I do like the format that they use. Having everybody assign a numeric grade to every player and than taking the sum of those grades.

    Austin Rivers is #285 in #NBARank. To get higher, he shouldn't go chasing waterfalls and should stick to the Rivers and lakes he's used to.
