Player rankings are quite the conversation starter.

ESPN recently finished up it's annual NBA player rankings, to no shortage of gleeful responses and combative uproars. That's the thing about these types of lists—they incite emotion.

Individual evaluations are predominantly subjective. Values of players—aside from maybe LeBron James—vary from person to person. When you attempt to make a comprehensive list of everyone, you're bound to make some friends, enemies and belligerent haters.

You're also going to make a few mistakes. 

Rankings are open to interpretation, but there are arrangements which qualify as acceptable and ones that are indefensible. You can't get away with placing one player far too high or low without catching our attention.

We know the difference between something that's spot-on, a pleasant surprise and something that's just plain wrong.
