    Espn ranks the top 20 sophomores

    1. Anthony Davis, Pelicans
    2. Andre Drummond, Pistons
    3. Damian Lillard, Trail Blazers
    4. Terrence Jones, Rockets
    5. Jonas Valanciunas, Raptors
    6. Miles Plumlee, Suns
    7. Bradley Beal, Wizards
    8. John Henson, Bucks
    9. Terrence Ross, Raptors
    10. Jared Sullinger, Celtics
    11. Draymond Green, Warriors
    12. Dion Waiters, Cavaliers
    13. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Bobcats
    14. Patrick Beverley, Rockets
    15. Jeremy Lamb, Thunder
    16. Mirza Teletovic, Nets
    17. Maurice Harkless, Magic
    18. Brian Roberts, Pelicans
    19. Mike Scott, Hawks
    20. Thomas Robinson, Blazers

    What do you guys think? Waiters seems pretty low to me and Raptors got two of the top 10. This was a really good draft class and might be better then the 2014 one.

    Really glad to see guys like Miles Plumlee, Brian Roberts, and Dray Green make a list like this. Goes to show how the increased importance of role players are in the game today.

    Before the season started I remember arguing with this guy about Terrance Jones, and he went't on to say he hasn't proved anything.. and he wouldn't make a impact this year' He's lucky I don't remember who he is, I just want to know how he feels about him now..

    Ross numbers are no where near impressive to be in the top 5. He has been highly inconsistent.

    I think the list is fine. would put Lillard over Drummond and Val over Jones. I wasn't looking to closely at the bottom of the list.

    Not really. He's about the same in every single statistical category.

    Rookie year; 9.2 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 1.2 APG, 0.6 SPG, 0.2 BPG, FG% .43, 3PT% .35
    Sophomore year; 9.3 PPG, 3.9 RPG, 1.4 APG, 0.8 SPG, 0.3 BPG, .FG% .40, 3PT% .34


    The hard truth is, during the regular season he wasn't good last year, at all. And he hasn't been good this year, at all.

    The playoff run he had is a very small sample size, and it's more likely that his regular season career stats of 9.2 PPG, 4 RPG and 1.3 APG is the "true" Barnes, where as the playoff averages last year of 16.4 PPG, 6.4 RPg and 1.3 APG were an anomaly.


    I still believe Barnes has the potential to be a 20 and 7 type of guy, but I don't think he's going to be the full blown all NBA-second team player that I thought he could be.

    It's all on him, how he improves during the offseason and whether or not he's willing to accept the role that the Warriors have him in. He had an opportunity to be a 6th man of the year if he had played like he did in the playoffs, but he blew it. Plain and simple.

    As for the list, it seems about right to me.

    Good list but I think id switch drummond and lillard personally. Val and jones could be flip flopped but no argument with that.

    I love that both Beverley and Jones made the list. Both guys are very deserving, and I think their spots seem fair, although Beverley would inevitably be higher if not for his injury concerns this season. The author even suggested Beverley would be in the top 10 if not for injuries. But to think Houston has two of the top players on this list and neither guys is among their three best overall is so promising. I don't think Beverley will ever be much more than he is now, but Jones can continue to get better. I can see him being an 18/9 guy in his prime if he continues to improve with a 3-point shot and above average defense.
