With less than two weeks until training camp, Michael and I return to talk NBA Rank at ESPN.com and the stark drop off between the Hornets Top Trio and the rest of the guys – as well as talk about whether we think the guys were judged fairly or unfairly.

Welcome back to In the NO!

    Love the podcast. I do think we need to temper expectations about Davis though – saying he’ll most likely be better than Chandler, the reigning DPOY and a very efficient, if limited, offensive player, just seems a bit disrespectful to Chandler. In a few years, I could definitely see him as DPOY, but in his first year, it’s expecting an awful lot

      Better than Chandler doesn’t mean he has to be DPOY. He could be Ibaka on the defensive end (better shot blocker than TC but not as good man-to-man) and current Garnett on the offensive end, which would be far better than Chandler, and that would make him the better overall player.

      I agree with Ryan- he will be listed in the top 15 next summer

    Good job.

    As far as ranking data goes, it’s all very subjective. Such is the nature of personal utility curves being forced on others. It’s a nature of the beast.

    They should have given some criteria, but essentially what you see is a composite utility curve. Is that `the signal’ or the tyrrany of the majority? Age old question . . .

    Chandler led the league in FG% and TS% last season while continuing to anchor a defense and be the presence in the locker room that Dirk attests to sparking their championship run. Of course I think Davis becomes better than Chandler but not this season.
    I loved the podcast and its strange how much 3 weeks makes you miss something. Thanks guys, I always enjoy the analysis.
