NBA Old School Power Rankings 2017-18 Season Debut

NBA Old School Power Rankings 2017-18 Season Debut

Today, the NBA’s best players rank from 25 years old plus. But this time we’re focussing on only those who are in their 30s, “Old School Power Ranking”. This season we’re opening our doors to all those 32-year-old NBA players. Here are the old school power rankings in the 2017-18 season debut.

8. Kyle Korver (36 Years Old) – Cleveland Cavaliers

Korver recorded 23 points (8-14 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds and one block across 24 minutes during a 117-115 loss to the Hawks on Sunday. He has been up and down early in the season, with four games of at least 13 points and four games of eight points or less

7. Dirk Nowitzki (39 Years Old) – Dallas Mavericks

What can we realistically expect this season from the big German? Nowitzki is one of the only two picks from the 98 draft remaining in NBA today. The basketball world still believes that time might stand still so that the league’s brightest stars could shine forever.

6. J.J. Barea (33 Years Old) – Dallas Mavericks

Barea has connected on three or more 3s in five of nine games while also eclipsing double-digit scoring in six contests.

5. Paul Millsap (32 Years Old) – Denver Nuggets

When it comes to Millsap, it’s not about style points but rather a solid production. One thing we have taken notice of is the improvement from beyond the arc, already connecting on 9-for-23 3s, putting him on pace for more than 80, which would be a career high.

4. Carmelo Anthony (33 Years Old) – Oklahoma City Thunder

Anthony has poured in 20 or more points in six of his first seven games with the Thunder. Having joined forces with the reigning MVP and Paul George, the Thunder now looks stronger.

3. Marc Gasol (32 Years Old) – Memphis Grizzlies

Gasol has gotten off to a nice start. Brushing aside Saturday’s six-point showing in which he shot just 1-for-8, the 7-footer has gone over 20 points in five of the first seven while averaging 1.7 blocks. Gasol already has three games with 25-plus points and 10-plus rebounds. He only had two such games all of the last season.

2. LaMarcus Aldridge (32 Years Old) – San Antonio Spurs

With Kawhi Leonard injured to start the season, Aldridge has been forced to be more aggressive and more offensive so as to protect the Spurs. the results have been positive, with the big man going for 20-plus points in six of seven games.

1. LeBron James (32 Years Old) – Cleveland Cavaliers

Despite the Cavaliers’ slow start, LeBron James has managed five double-doubles in the first eight games. It will take some time before anyone bumps James from his first place. Last week he made history after scoring 57 points in a game, reaching 29,000 career points.
