As usual, every year a few days before the start of the regular season NBAseveral US websites announce their own ratings of the season’s top basketball players.
One of the most authoritative, targeted and significant ranking it is undoubtedly the one that has been posting for several years now ESPN. The assessments are made on the basis of many and various criteria, but this does not mean that they can be accurate, since the “mirror” of each athlete is only the parquet.
So according to ESPN, the Ja Morad is the athlete with the greater drop in ranking compared to last season! Memphis Grizzlies superstar not a little, not a lot, dropped a full 26 places!
In particular, the problems he had recently with the authorities due to gun possession and domestic violence, which also brought him penalties from the NBA and the commissioner of the league, Adam Silver, resulted in him falling in 35th place of the list of the top athletes of the season!
And to think how he was last year at No.9a position he fully justified, finishing the 2022/23 season with 26.2 points, 8.1 assists and 5.9 rebounds average!
