Down with the traitors!
CCS Hall of Fame '20
PER is only a part of the equation, and likely to become less of the equation in my criteria as too many players are crossing the 20.0 PER threshold. I also consider overall stat numbers, making All-NBA 1st/2nd consistently, team success, awards or MVP vote shares, obviously consistency, and ability to make clutch baskets coupled in with an eye test.paul comes in at 26th in PER so you’re not far off. The difference is scoot doesn’t think there are 26 superstars in the league, and he’s right. And Paul is no longer one of them. Hell of a good player, but not on the super star level.
superstar caliber guys today are
with trae young and Zion knocking on that door
Your list, I agree with completely, though Harden still makes my list even with his rather down year this season. Also Lillard makes the list on the back end. I had a hard time including him for awhile because he kinda just didn't do it for me in the eye test, but after some review, dude is clutch, he's dragged the Blazers to the WCF, though generally he is a first round loser. KG was a similar thing in Minnesota though. First round loses every year except 03-04.
Trae and Zion are absolutely knocking, and a few guys like Tatum and Mitchell have outside chances of becoming supers.
