Scotty Hopson - The best player in the NBL?

In the Breakers first pre-season game at the Blitz Matt Walsh dubbed Scotty Hopson as the best player in the NBL and "its not even close". A statement that seemed outlandish and premature at the time.

Hopson started off the season well, but unfortunately went down with a knee injury, that sidelined him over a month.

But now that he is healthy and playing extremely well, I think its time to revisit this discussion.

Hopson has led NZ to 3 straight wins, with back-to-back game winners against the Hawks and the Bullets respectively. He is willing the Breakers to a potential playoff berth.

IMO, he is the most talented player in the NBL and I hope to see him back in the league next year.

Homicide says he is, but he has also said every player is at some stage...

Cotton is the TRUE best player in the NBL. He dominates on the biggest stage.

Ware, Cotton, Creek, Newbill, imo are all better defensively and offensively than Hopson.

Definitely top ten and I think he's still improving as he returns from injury. But there is no unanimous best player in the league. This a reflection of how good the league has become, particularly at the top end of players and teams, that it’s very difficult to separate players. Other players worth considering: Cotton, Ware, Bogut, Creek. Machado, Randle, Kay, Webster, Goulding, Patterson all below that top echelon.

Hopson today: 31, 7, 3, 60% from the field and the W on the road against Adelaide.

Best player in the NBL.
