Our process continues!
Regular visitors know that we are slowly working away on our Top 50 players for each major franchise. Those same visitors know that they are being added VERY slowly and that we have a long way to go still.
Having said that, we have updated the first NBA Top 50 list, which is that of the Charlotte Hornets.
In the future, changes to top 50 NBA teams will be more subtle, as we now have an algorithm that is fixed, and adds more elements of advanced statistics. All changes after this will be only reflect what has changed over a completed season. Basically, what we are saying is that the Hornets overhaul reflects our new system and now the 2015-16 season accomplishments.
We have switched around the entire list, but for the sake of brevity, let’s look at the new top five:
Larry Johnson takes over the #1 from Gerald Wallace who traded places to come in at #2. Muggsy Bogues and Dell Curry remain at #3 and #4 respectively. Glen Rice moves into #5, up one spot, taking over for Emeka Okafor who dropped significantly to #9. Notably, Kemba Walker moved up from #12 to #6.
The entire list can be found here.
Look for more Top 50 lists and revisions from us soon!
