    Nearly 2 years into their careers, I'm ready to say that Bam is pretty much about a top 10 player from the 2017 draft currently.

    My list would look like this

    1. Donovan Mitchell
    2. Tatum
    3. Kuzma
    4. Fox
    5. Markkanen
    6. John Collins
    7. Ball
    8. Dennis Smith
    9. Jarrett Allen
    10. Bam/Josh Hart

    LA just went berserk. I mean if put his head down and stay aggressive he is one of the most talented big men we have ever seen, he has a sweet jumper and turnaround, he is capable of putting up big numbers.
    I mean he has been a consistent 20 and 8 guy for 12 straight years, pretty crazy.

    The bold is always going to be an issue as long as there is fan voting. Fans aren't necessarily logical about voting because they want to see "their guys".

    Imo, if it's going to be promoted as a "fans game", then leave the voting to the fans knowing that it won't always be "logical" and live with the results.

    Otherwise, go to some other voting format that either eliminates or limits the fan vote and quit promoting it as a game "for the fans".

    I'm going to guess Shaq and Wilt to start (3 pt arc era wouldn't matter for Wilt).

    This article is 3 years old, but at that time there had been 71 (of 214) 50 pt games without a made 3 pointer.

    The 50-Point Game Without A Three-Pointer: Will It Ever Happen Again?

    I'd say yes, but not likely to win. If you had a ranking, he'd be somewhere in the 6-8 range for me. But still that's in the discussion.

    Got to say I shit on Westbrook a lot (and justifiably so), but last night he was incredible. That was the best version of him I think I've seen in terms of reading the game, making the right plays and maximizing his efficiency. THAT is the Westbrook I've always wanted to see.

    If that Westbrook comes out to play in the playoffs, every team in the NBA should be really worried.

    I actually found it on Basketball-Reference. There's been 42 games where a player scored 50 without attempting a 3. And that's way more than I expected.
