Presumably in response to Kobe Bryant being ranked 25th in this year’s edition of ESPN.com’s #NBARank project, Kevin Durant had something to say:
Players should rate players..just like the nfl do..these analysts never played at this level before! Just being real

He might be right: I had Nick Collison ranked the fourth best player in the league behind KD, Russell Westbrook and Cliff Robinson (I’ve just always liked Cliff Robinson. Great name.). I also have Sammy Hagar’s Van Halen ranked ahead of David Lee Roth’s in my Van Halen Front Man Power Rankings so as you can see, I’m not to be trusted with ranking things.
KD made his own ranking waves already when he added James Harden to his top 10 list and dropped Dwyane Wade from it. So he’s not shy about lists. He should write for BuzzFeed or something.
