Nuggets players in the ESPN player rankings (201-500)

The ESPN/Truehoop 2012 NBA player rankings (which you can follow at @NBAonESPN using the #NBArank hashtag) have now counted down to players 201-220. Continuing with our look at where Nuggets players were ranked, here is an updated list including two new names, Timofey Mozgov at 220 and Corey Brewer at 203.

Here are the Nuggets players who have appeared thus far:

  • 203 Corey Brewer (up 5 from previous rank of 208)
  • 220 Timofey Mozgov (up 86 from previous rank of 306)
  • 269 Anthony Randolph (down 49 from previous rank of 220)
  • 274 Kosta Koufos (up 74 from previous rank of 348)
  • 337 Jordan Hamilton (up 43 from previous rank of 380)
  • 395 Quincy Miller
  • 410 Evan Fournier
  • 473 Julyan Stone

And as a basis for comparison, here are last year’s previous rankings for the Denver players who have yet to be named:

  • 34 Andre Iguodala
  • 64 Ty Lawson
  • 68 Danilo Gallinari
  • 75 Wilson Chandler
  • 89 Andre Miller
  • 99 JaVale McGee
  • 331 Kenneth Faried

We will keep you updated as the next tiers of rankings are released. In the meantime, please feel free to share your reactions and predictions in the comments.

    Since Brewer and Mozgov now appear in the first list, you can remove them from the second list.

    Predictions:

    Andre Iguodala 30 (up 4 spots) – He’ll be given essentially the same score, but a few players immediately above him will drop due to injury, age, etc.

    Ty Lawson 44 (up 20) – 2012 numbers are similar to what the guards in the late 30s and early 40s had in 2011

    Kenneth Faried 61 (up 270) – a shade behind where Millsap was last season

    Danilo Gallinari 68 (even) – Showed some improvement, but also showed tendency to be injured.

    JaVale McGee 75 (up 24) – playoff performance, including spectacular lack of knucklehead maneuvers, will give him a boost

    Andre Miller 99 (down 10) – age and reduced minutes cost him a few spots. Still one of the most valuable backups in the league.

    Wilson Chandler 100 (down 25) – he’s been down since the Melo trade, particularly shooting and with turnovers. I think voters will see that as a bit of a fluke.

      Thanks for pointing that out, Lothar, I’ll edit the post.

        Also, if your predictions are correct, I wonder if the Nuggets will be the only team with seven (or even six?) players in the top 100.

          Spots 101-120 are up, and no Nuggets have appeared yet. So we definitely have 7 in the top hundred.

      Jeremy, Kalen and Charlie have put in 99% of the hard work that has made RMC what it is. including cranking out a ton of fantastic content through the playoffs, draft, Summer League and adidas Nation. So I’m pretty much riding on their coattails, and I’ve happened to have a lot of free time over the summer, while from what I’ve gathered they’ve all been incredibly busy. Not to mention that I’m probably something like the overly enthused new guy at the office who hasn’t finished the honeymoon phase and moved on to the slacking off phase. ;)

      Those guys deserve to take a bit of a break, and things will even out over time. But we do have plans for some features which all four of us will be contributing to, and I have no doubt that once media day and training camp roll around, the excitement for the upcoming season will naturally energize all of us. But for now, it is the offseason, and there really isn’t a whole heck of a lot going on. So I hope all the readers can be a little patient if the activity level slows down a little, since a good amount of what we do is news driven.

        Den, not only do you have great posts, but great replies to people who are trying to hint at/start something.

      I think you mean no “offense,” and while I didn’t take any, usually if you’re trying to hint at something, you’re probably best off not starting with that phrase as it has mostly negative connotations…

      We appreciate what Denbutsu has done since joining this blog more than I can say. I’ve told him that numerous times.

      What you have to realize that maintaining a blog while simultaneously balancing your job and real life isn’t a breeze. We try hard as we can do deliver quality content to you guys as often as possible. But sometimes, other things in our lives are more salient. I’ve been more busy the last two weeks than I have been in years. I can’t entirely speak for Jeremy or Charlie, but I know those guys have jobs that require their full attention as well.

      Honestly, Denbustu has already gone way above and beyond what I expected. It’s the offseason and he’s cranking out articles like it’s the middle of January. The respect and appreciation I have for that is, again, hard to put in words.

      We have plans for a big series coming up so I hope you guys will be a little patient during the down months of the season.

      As always, thanks for reading.
