Mike Conley and Marc Gasol made the list of the top 100 NBA players of 2017, but were they placed appropriately?

USA TODAY Sports

Six of the mothersite’s finest made This Top 100 list of the 100 best NBA players in the year 2017. GBB’s own Andrew Ford and yours truly both contributed blurbs to the entries on Marc Gasol and Mike Conley, who ranked 35th and 51st respectively.

An excerpt:

Age isn’t going to make [Marc Gasol] any less huge. For whatever Gasol gives up now or in the future in terms of speed and quickness, there aren’t many 7’1 and 265-pounds folks. Even if Gasol never gets much better, I doubt he’ll get much worse for a long while.

Were they high enough? Were they too high? (My Marc Gasol blurb might give away my own emotions on the topic…) What do you think?
