Carl Landry Named 116th Best NBA Player

Published: September 26, 2011

New Orleans Hornets forward Carl Landry is the 116th best NBA player, according to ESPN’s team of basketball writers. We haven’t talked about this too much, but recently ESPN asked every NBA writer they have at their disposal to rank every single NBA player in the game. Ryan and I both participated, and the results have been tallied and announced gradually both on Twitter and on ESPN.

Carl Landry, who may or may not be a Hornet next year, is the first New Orleans player mentioned since Jarret Jack was announced as the 214th best baller.

Landry played 23 regular season games for the Hornets last year after being acquired from Sacramento for former fan-favorite, Marcus Thornton. In those games Landry averaged 11.8 points and 4.1 rebounds in just over 26 minutes per game. In the playoffs he played over 35 minutes a game against the Lakers, averaging 15.8 points and 5.0 rebounds.

As it stands now, here are how the players on the Hornets team at year end have fared so far:

116. Carl Landry
214. Jarret Jack
228. Marco Belinelli
281. Aaron Gray
381. DJ Mbenga
385. Quincy Pondexter
477. Marcus Banks
485. Patrick Ewing jr.
Still to come– Chris Paul, Emeka Okafor, Trevor Ariza, David West
