    Yeah, author is from Utah?

    no way AK is top ten any more. Even when he was at his best, his foul hard flop harder style of play would keep him off my list. That and being a member of the Jazz.

    OP should clarify that these rankings are based on WARP, it's a statistic like PER or PPG, TS%, etc. with some adjustments.

    Should not take any of these lists seriously at all.

    The PG list didn't have Tony Parker top 10 lmao.

    Kind of a lazy analysis by ESPN.

    I like Leonard a lot, but would you seriously put him above George?
    Batum above George? Really?

    And saving homerism for last — Korver above Parsons???? If you read on, the author actually has Parsons at 10, TIED with Matt Barnes and Jared Dudley.

    How would this list look if the criteria shifted toward a more realistic question — with the more pertinent question being "who would you take right now to build your team with?" In other words, which SFs really have the most overall value? It's sort of like the SG rankings. Yes, you might argue DWade and Kobe are superior to Harden, but if you could pick any one 2 guard to have on your team, does anyone not take Harden?

    10th is about right for Parsons. I'd probably take him over Korver, but it would be hard to put him over anyone else on that list.

    Parsons can be alot higher if he just works on his wing threes. The guy shoots 30% from there, worst in the NBA. Top of the key and corner three's Parsons is absolutely money but wing threes, the dude is terrible at.

    Parsons should be 9. He benefits a lot from playing next to Harden but definitely better than Korver.

    Chandler should def be in the top 15

    I think Gay and Deng are better but Chandler has the potential to crack the top 8

    Looks pretty reasonable. Hopefully Chandler will keep moving up the list, but he needs to put together another solid 1-2 seasons.
