    This is disgusting disrespect.

    Green is top 50 easily and will be top 30 by season end.

    Top 5 within 5 years

    Where rookies are ranking isn't particularly relevant - it's tough to rank them at all until they play a game!

    It'll be interesting to see where they rank KPjr - does he make the top 50, or is he left off altogether? You'd think a 50 point game and being given the keys might see him ranked higher. But it is possible ESPN don't even know what position he plays?

    A rookie that has yet to play a game yet, better rank than tank commander. The disrespect

    Im also interested to see where KPJ ranks on this list as well. But he might not make the list all together because I dont know that he's better that Christian Wood at this moment in time.

    While it is disrespect, this version of the tank captain is far from his absolute and personal best.

    I'm a huge fan of what Green will become, but it's not disrespectful to put a rookie who hasn't played one game at 96. You may be right that he could be top 30 by season's end, but it's pre preseason.

    I see him as the most talented player we have on our roster; and by default is better than John Wall when looking at the upcoming season. I mean, the team told Wall he wouldn't play this year, and that's because KPJ is the starting PG. But as I said, I wouldn't be surprised if ESPN don't even know if he's a point guard....

    Don't get me wrong, I really like Wood - but KPJ is far less experienced, and so has far more room to grow his game this season. What he produced last season was impressive, and towards the end of the year was at his most impressive - youngest ever 50 point double double is quite a feat! If you were projecting forwards, you might lock in Wood at the same stat-line, but potentially give KPJ more room to grow?

    I'd bet they don't have him in there - we'll see!

    I hope Jalen Green, Kevin Porter Jr, Alperen Sengun all know about their own Rankings and get extra motivation by this.

    We still have a shot at a top 50 player with Simmons

    I’ll say it: They shouldn’t put rookies on these kind of lists. Period.
