Rajan and John rank the top 25 players for the 2017-2018 NBA season to date, with the premise of: if you were playing a basketball game tonight, with everything on the line, who is among the top of the list of players that you’d want on your team?
A full weekend after the last pick of the NBA Draft was announced – some guy named Alpha, go figure – all the searing hot takes have engulfed Twitter in a fury of Woj bombs, Bill Simmons gasps, and enraged fanbases committing social media suicide.
