NBA Reddit voted on the top 25 current NBA players
When this post first appeared on Reddit, Antetokounmpo and Curry were tied for the most with 94 points. However, only 15,000 votes were cast. With 92 points, LeBron is tied for second place with Jokic. Also, Jimmy Butler was ranked eighth overall. NBA Reddit will update the chart below after 1,000,000 votes are cast.
Update with 667,000 votes
Brandon Ingram, Chris Paul, Anthony Edwards, Khris Middleton and Bam Adebayo rounded out the top 30 on Reddit. However, Jrue Holiday, Pascal Siakam, Bradley Beal, DeAndre Ayton and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander fell below the top-30 ranking.
While this is now a solid list based on a 667,000 vote revision, at 15,000 votes, Butler, Kawhi Leonard and Jayson Tatum were once ahead of Embiid. This goes to show that it is mostly a popularity contest. Leonard He hasn’t played since tearing his ACL in 2021.
Should Joel Embiid be ranked in the top 5?
Last season, Embiid averaged 30.6 points, 11.7 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.5 blocks per game. He won his first championship title. The six-year center is definitely a better player than Buller, Leonard and Tatum. When voting for current NBA players, seasonal bias is important.
For another notable observation, Russell Westbrook hasn’t cracked 30. However, it is probably correct. The triple king averaged 18.5 points last season. It’s the first time he hasn’t averaged 20 points per game since the 2009-10 season.
The fans were also disappointed with the Lakers last season. They had top-3 odds to win the 2022 NBA championship, according to several sportsbooks. However, the team failed to even qualify for the playoffs.
