Every year around this time ESPN introduces its annual #NBArank series codifying all 500 players in the NBA from least to most valuable. Last year Roundball Mining Company decided to get in on the action and began ranking each of the players on the Denver Nuggets’ final 15-man roster in the same fashion. We’ve polled all seven of our writers, asking them to arrange each player on the Nuggets roster from one to 15 (one being the best, 15 the least valuable), then we added everyone’s scores together to come up with a single, definitive list of the 15 “most valuable” Denver Nuggets. Checking in at number two is Danilo Gallinari, up one spot from last season.

Coming soon: Roundball ranks the Denver Nuggets

For over a month our writers have been in discussion about an upcoming series that ranks the Denver Nuggets from 1-15. In conjunction with the current ESPN #NBArank, we’ve come up with our own formula for ranking the Denver Nuggets (it’s actually not that complicated). After adding up all our writers’ scores and fielding everyone’s input, we’ve finally determined a solid order by which all 15 Denver Nuggets players are ranked based on who we feel is the best at this very moment. This has nothing to do with the future or the past. This is the definitive Roundball Mining Company #NuggetsRank of the current Denver Nuggets roster based on who we feel is more valuable to the team, in relation to their teammates, right now!

The series will kick off soon so stay tuned for who comes in at No. 15.
