    ESPN: Top 25 under 25

    ESPN released an article stating their top 25 players under the age of 25, kind of a shocking list (surprise!). Anyways, here's their list in numerical order:

    Anthony Davis
    Paul George
    Andre Drummond
    James Harden
    John Wall
    Blake Griffin
    Kylie Irving
    Damian Lilliard
    Demarcus Cousins
    Derrick Favors
    Eric Bledsoe
    Serge Ibaka
    Greg Monroe
    Kawhi Leonard
    Michael Carter-Williams
    Nicolas Batum
    Harrison Barnes
    Giannis Antetokounmpo
    Gordon Hayward
    Jrue Holliday
    Klay Thompson
    Nikola Vucevic
    Ricky Rubio
    Jonas Valanciunas
    John Henson

    If anyone wants to know ESPN's insight about a certain player, you can PM, since I'm not allowed to post insider material.

    ESPN's next 10 picks, after their initial list:
    Bradley Beal
    Victor Oladipo
    Jimmy Butler
    Lance Stephenson
    Isaiah Thomas
    Andrew Nicholson
    Kenneth Faried
    Mason Plumlee
    Reggie Jackson
    Trey Burke

    The Sixers traded up!!
    DO NOT TRUST YOUR PETS TO NEMACOLIN WOODLANDS KENNEL

    On 7/20/14 we took our Calla and Pebble for a stay while on vacation. On 7/21 Calla, who is diabetic, was given 10x her insulin dosage. She wasn't found until 12 hours after being overdosed. After a week and a half of suffering we made the tough decision to put her down because of brain damage and a lack of a quality of life. She was only 7 and her breed lives until their 20's. Over half of our beloved Calla's life was stolen from us.

    Favors is too high he should be below Vuc and Rubio should be higher ahead of Giannis

    Hayward, Klay, Rubio are too low. Harden should be above Drummond, and George is debatable as well. I think Favors is a bit high too. I think Leonard should be a little bit higher, as should Monroe.

    Drummond will be the 2nd best in the group when it is all said and done.

    I would go Paul George 1st. Andre is a little too high, but there's no doubt he has one of the highest ceilings. Also think Bledsoe is too high, he's played really well, but still..

    Is this supposed to be a projection list of these players potential? As is it makes no sense.

    As others have said, Harden should clearly be above Drummond. Favors is also clearly too high, and the Greek Freak is way too high. I also have issues with a few other players, but overall it's not a bad list. It just needs some re-ordering.

    From ESPN:
    This season, we ranked our top 25 under 25 not based on who they are now, but who they can become. It's not solely based on potential as much as the projection on how much of that full potential can be reached. In a sense, this ranking represents how these players would be drafted if each were available in the draft right now.

    To be clear: This is a ranking of how we would order these players if we were starting a franchise and would have them for the next several years, not just this season. The overall rankings are based on an aggregate average of the individual rankings of our trio of NBA experts.

    I'd have James Harden a lot higher than #4.
    Favourite Teams:

    Boston Red Sox: 46-52, games this week vs. Blue Jays (4), Rays (3)
    Indianapolis Colts: Good draft and off-season so far.
    Looking for new NBA team to cheer for
    Ottawa Senators: 37-31-14, season over, free agency begins this week.
