A few of us here at UTSN have been working on a top 100 NBA players list. Here is numbers 54-50
54. Andrew Bogut (Golden State Warriors)
Bogut in current talks with the Warriors about a contract extention. If Bogut and Lee can both stay healthy the Warriors might be a dangerous team this year.
Regular Season Stats: 24.6 MIN, 5.8 PPG, 7.7 REB, 2.1 AST
53) Danny Granger (Indiana Pacers)
People forget that Granger, who played just 74 minutes, led the Pacers in scoring five consecutive seasons. He may not do that again this year — not with the growth of George — but he’s going to return as one of the players who gives the Pacers a chance to beat the Heat.
Regular Season Stats: 14.8 MIN, 5.4 PPG, 1.8 REB, 0.6 AST
52) Kenneth Faired (Denver Nuggets)
Faired is a underrated player in my opinion. Faired doesn’t get that much attention because everyone is focused on his teammates.
Regular Season Stats: 28.1 MIN, 11.5 PPG, 9.2 REB, 1.0 AST
51) Eric Gordan (New Orleans Pelicans)
