NBL Top 5 Players by Position

As we look back at the midway point of the 2017-18 campaign, it's a great time to review and assess the premier players at each position in the 40th Anniversary campaign of the NBL.

NBL: Top 5 Shooting Guards of the Season

The premier big men are next on the list to come...who are your Top 5's?

Todd Blachfield listed as an Offguard???

And Sobey not in the top 5 is understandable but disappointing.

All the pount guards have seemed quite inconsistent this year. No real standout this year so far.

Although if Randle was still in Adelaide and was cranking 3's at that clip he'd probably be in MVP form again. Probably be getting more assists in a good team too.

Point guard ratings are good

For shooting guard I'd have
1. Cotton
2. Mccarron
3. Rotnei
4. Newbill
5. Sobey
6. Moore
then the rest

Although: IS gliddon considered a SF then? Him and Mccarron are basically interchangeable, and I'd probably place Gliddon as the team's SG and Mccarron as the SF

The first 12 rounds have revealed plenty about the league's leading bigs, exposing some weaknesses and shining a light on their skills both inside and outside.

Tyler at 2? Seriously? The Kings are better off without him, he's a cancer with no interest in defending!

Funnily enough, the only player with a worse per minute +/- in the league is Humphries!

For me, Daniel Johnson has to be the number 2 centre, he has been outstanding the more he has played at that position.

My PFs:

5 Kickert
4 Walker
3 Kay
2 Wesley
1 Creek

Cs:

5 Cooke
4 Pledger
3 Jervis
2 Johnson
1 Boone

re: NBL Top 5 Players by Position

Have I not seen enough from McCarron to get a real gauge on how good he is? Is he really better than Childress and Clarke?

re: NBL Top 5 Players by Position

@Hendo his rebounding and defense has been superb, despite arguably his shooting/scoring has slightly regressed. Plus he has played every game this season and didn't miss 4 rounds like Childress.

I think Wesley may have Surpassed Creek at the PF role.

If we are rating based on the whole season, then we can't exclude guys like Ogilvy and Ellis (Perry) based on recent rounds.

No way McCarron is in front of Childress imo. Childress is getting better and better by the game. His intangibles are as good as anyone and a big reason why Adelaide has been playing so well of late.

The premier power/stretch forwards.

From the sweet shooting of Daniel Kickert to the metronome efficiency of Perry Ellis, the season's first 12 rounds have revealed plenty about the league’s leading 4-men, exposing some weaknesses and shining a light on their undoubted strengths.

Why do we feel the need to rank?

Serious question. What is its purpose?

Not all positions are that accurate some players listed spend majority of time at other positions.
