ESPN: Miami Heat Have Both NBA's Best and Worst Player
I guess it's only fair that since the Miami Heat have the undisputed best basketball player in the world that they should also have the worst player in the entire league.
To no one's surprise, ESPN's experts today put LeBron James atop their #NBARank listicle, which is kind of hilarious because last year he was on the same team with the NBA's very worst player.
Bulging center Eddy Curry came in all the way at the very bottom at number 500. Yes, he is ranked as the worst player in the entire league. His contract with the Heat lasted for just one year, and there's no indication he'll be back next year. Which is fine. He played all of 83 minutes total during the season and didn't make an appearance in the playoffs.
Elsewhere on the list, Dwyane Wade came in eighth. That's down from third place on the list last year. Hot Hot Hoops has a pretty good argument as to why that's BS, and that Wade should at least be two spots higher above both Kobe Bryant and Derrick Rose.
Chris Bosh brings up the Big Three's rear at number 18. Meanwhile Ray Allen is the next highest at 64.
Mario Chalmers comes in at 104, Shane Battier at 107, and Udonis Haslem at 129.
