ESPN 2013 NBA Player Rankings #201-300: Quincy Pondexter and Mike Miller

Dude.. sure, whatever... I totally believe that you know karate. - USA TODAY Sports

ESPN is releasing their 2013 NBA Player Rankings and we'll take a look at where the Grizzlies (and other relevant players) show up on the list.

Quincy Pondexter - #210
Mike Miller - #211

The Grizzlies nearly passed another century mark until their next players showed up on ESPN's rankings. Qpon jumped up an incredible 149 slots this season. I haven't kept track of everyone's improvements, but that has to be one of the more impressive climbs this year. The veteran, Mike Miller, is up 25 spots from last year, a respectable increase that's influenced from his prominent playoff role.

Other notables on the list:

What's really interesting about this segment of the list is all the ex-Grizzlies that were dealt away from the team in the past year or so. What's more interesting is that the image being painted here portrays "Hollinger's Computer" as being just about spot on the money (taking into account that these ESPN rankings might still be heavily influenced by Hollinger's formulas).

Takeaways:

  • Austin Daye is a no-brainer, but I'm still insulted by the premise that he's better than Jon Leuer .... ridiculous.
  • Dante Cunningham is just a really athletic, tall guy that can emulate playing basketball pretty well.
  • Wayne Ellington got lucky on a lot of 3pt shooting last year.
  • Speights really benefited from playing with Marc Gasol in Memphis.
  • Darrell Arthur's injuries are slowly killing his career.
