How did the Clippers fare in SI and ESPN’s NBA player rankings?

It is officially NBA player ranking season, and this week, two of the bigger outlets in NBA media — Sports Illustrated and ESPN — performed their annual ritual of ranking the top 100 players in the league.

Although it’s foolish to place too much stock into individual rankings, they do provide an interesting look in to how the national landscape views the Clippers. This is a team that made the Western Conference finals a year ago, going 4-4 in their last eight playoff games without Kawhi Leonard, and yet, there is shockingly little respect for the team’s overall depth.
