53. Eric Bledsoe
Needs to play 2,500 minutes in ONE season before he cracks the top 50. (Since 48 guys did it last season, we’re not asking for much here.)

If you're not in the top 50 in total minutes played, you're not one of the 50 top trade pieces. Immutable law of mankind since this paragraph began.

As a bit of a Bledsoe fan that caught my eye since he is ranked 13th so far this year with 1795 minutes. It must be the dream of making the list next year that is holding his knees together for now. He played almost every game in 2010-11 and 2012-13 but was obviously not a starter. Hardly an unusual injury risk after missing 1 game this year.

Apparently this rule does not apply to
51. Victor Oladipo, 2487 minutes (sorry close but rules are rules)
50. Alex Len, 362 minutes (no injury risk here)
49. Jonas Valanciunas, 2282 minutes
48. Nikola Vucevic, 1812 minutes last year but 2559 minutes in 2012-13 so we have a winner.
47. Jusuf Nurkic , 0 minutes
46. Nikola Mirotic, 0 minutes
45. Derrick Favors, 2201 minutes

Good rundown. I think he's a little bitter that he had a chance to be on the Bledsoe train early an instead chose to nitpick his game unfairly, which then blew up in his face. Notice how he constantly praises the Suns, but never says a good word about Bledsoe, even though he's been arguably their best player all season.

Has part two ever been published? I can't wait to see him put Kyrie 20 spots behind some lame asses like Lillard or Wall

He covered it on the Grantland Basketball Hour. I don't know if he's planning to actually write it up. I hope so; I really like the trade value column.

If you are curious, I remember: (1) Davis (2) LeBron (3) Durant (4) Harden (5) Curry (6) Westbrook (7) Griffin (8) Wall (9) Paul (10) MGasol? (11) Klay (21) Wiggins. Kawhi, Pau, and Butler were somewhere in the teens.

Yes. How dare Kyrie be listed behind guys who've actually made the playoffs!

I have brow on my fantasy team. I get the feeling he may end up being injury prone throughout his career. I'm keeping a close eye on this.

Agreed. I think people are getting a little carried away with him.

I too, agree. I think he's a potential injury risk. And also if he's soooo good, why are they not solidly in the play off picture. I mean come on bro(w). I see they're currently the 10 seed, 1 game over .500.
PS: I will never like July 27th. It will always be the day Reggie died. I just hate this day. True Celtic fans know what I mean.

everybody forgets this, but basketball is a 5 on 5 team sport. Other than injuries, he's the best defensive player on the league, he can run and handle on the fast break, score in the post, has a beautiful j up to 18 feet and an all around great basketball iq. As much as people like Simmons are tards so ruin everything with overhype, Davis is the real deal. Also, being 10th in the west right now isn't so bad.

Agree with all this. Any big guy is an injury risk, but he's built more like KG than a plodder, I think he'll be fine except the occasional fluke injury.

yeah, but love was a huge defensive liability and wasnt this far along at age 21. Also I repeatedly said he was massively overrated.

Yeah, I'm not trying to put Love into the same category as Davis.

It's just odd how basketball is a team game for one and not for the other and how Love not making the postseason was a huge mark against his character but Davis is a stud regardless.

It may be true that Davis is substantially better than Love but some of the logic being used is flawed.

5 on 5 team sport my f*cking ass. The best player in the league (or must non-tradeable or whatever) should be able to carry a team to an 8 seed. Jrue was an All Star a couple years ago, and they have other good players.

Come on, give me a break. Kyrie's best side kick was Dion Waiters, give him a solid team with Beal, Nene, Gortat etc. or a stud like Aldridge and other great pieces and he would've made the second round and then some.
