Now that we're focusing on the 2013-14 season, the injured stars are allowed to rise back into the rankings of the NBA's best players.
Say hello to Derrick Rose, Rajon Rondo and Kevin Love. Did you miss them?
You certainly did if you were a fan of the Chicago Bulls, Boston Celtics or Minnesota Timberwolves, but the rest of the NBA could breathe a little easier in their absence.
Of course, that trio of superstars is joined by the Association's 17 other top-20 players. We have plenty of young guns and a few aging studs mixed into the rankings.
The 2012-13 campaign was heavily factored into the analysis, but so too was the expected change that will occur for each player in the 2013-14 season. That's why you can find an "on the rise," "on the decline" or similarly predictive tag at the bottom of every player's slide.
Did your favorite player make it into the Top 20? Who would be in yours?
Leave your responses in the comment section, but, as is always the case in these sure-to-be-heated debates, make sure to keep it civil.
