Disagree because these lists are way too highly impacted by recency bias. 

If this list was done on Christmas fox would be 4 spots higher and nurkic wouldn't be on the list. If it was done before the season Tatum would be 5th or 6th. 

In two weeks Lauri Markkanen or Trae Young could probably go from off the list to into the top 10. Another two weeks and they might fall off again. 


The list is stupid just on it's face. Young players are volatile and we really know nothing about them. 

June of 2017 Wiggins would be in the top 5. Today he's completely off the list.

I think these lists are good for showing trajectories of players as well as giving an outside perspective.  I wouldn't have had Jokic #2 on mine for example but he's an incredible player.
