The NBA is back, and to get ready for what should be a truly epic season, the Complex Sports team decided to get everyone in their feelings and rank the top 50 players in the league entering the 2019-20 season. Obviously, this wasn't an easy task, and everyone has their own opinions on the highly disputed matter. But after hours and hours of debate, this is where we landed. Off the top, we'll tell you that the back half of this list may have been the toughest to lock down. You're splitting hairs with a lot of these guys based on how much talent is in the NBA right now.
So no, you probably won't agree, but that's what makes this fun. You could go a number of different ways with how you rank each guy, and there's so much talent in the NBA today that this is a nearly impossible task to dive into. We do want to note that Kevin Durant and John Wall were left off of this list because they're not expected to play this season. If they were to, they'd clearly be in the top 50 and, in KD's case, the top 5. On the other hand, we included Klay Thompson because, unlike KD and John Wall, he's expected to play this season. Also, no Zion Williamson this year because he's a rookie, but based on the early returns in preseason, he'll be very high next year.
With all of that being said, get ready to argue, and check out the Complex Sports list of the top 50 players in the NBA.
