Takeaways :

 

The Best Players Are Dominant 

Giving Zion a ninety-one overall rating almost feels high. We haven’t seen him play in over a year. When he was playing, his dominance was unquestionable. All players ranked at eighty-five or higher have been dominant in some way in the past. What does this player do that none other can? That’s what makes a dominant player.

 

The Eighty-Five Threshold

Every All-Star from last season was given at least an eighty-five overall rating. The only player who would have been an exception to this is Andrew Wiggins, who exceeded expectations enough in the Playoffs to warrant borderline All-Star status.

 

The League Is Getting Younger

We can talk about potential all we want, but the next generation is here now. There are more young and contributing players than ever before. They will only continue to improve.

 

Next is a value rating as I measure any players long-term potential for success and how much it would mean to acquire them via trade or Free Agency.

Takeaways :

 

Star Potential Value Is Above All Else

Some players who do not or will not contribute as a star for a few years are looked at as potential late bloomers who could have room to grow in different aspects of their game. 

 

Contracts Were Not Considered

It’s important to note that the value of a player can change tremendously based on their financial obligations. Due to the amount of ridiculous contracts, it’s easier to rank players as to what should be their monetary value, not what it really is.

 

‘Blockbuster’ Trades 

Historic trades would only be centered around Five or Four Star Assets. The cutoff in this case is Jalen Green, who I believe would warrant a team to spend multiple first round picks via trade. Just below Green’s value is guys like Chris Paul and Jrue Holiday, who are proven winners, but on the decline.

 

Unlisted Players

Some players are too old to have any value at all. Some players don’t have enough star potential to be a major piece in any trade. This doesn’t mean that there won’t be surprise guys who prove their value in this upcoming season.
