Ranking the top 50 players in the NBA


It's officially NBA season, which means it's officially time to rank things in the NBA. First up: the players!

Unlike any other league, the NBA is driven by star power -- and a lot of it. Basketball is now stacked with more talent than perhaps ever before, with each contending team sporting at least one -- and typically multiple -- superstars on a nightly basis.

Above, we ranked who we think are the 50 best players in the league entering the 2015-16 campaign. Take a look through and be sure to tweet us your thoughts at @AOLSports.

Don't forget to take a look at our predictions for the 2016 season, including award winners and our eventual NBA champion.
