Top 100 Players of the 2022 Season (6/29/22)

The 2021-22 chapter of the NBA story closed with the Golden State Warriors being crowned champions for the fourth time in eight years. Now, as we enter the offseason, it’s time for my annual top 100 list. I began with a pool of around 170 players and somehow cut it down to 100 (plus tenContinue reading “Top 100 Players of the 2022 Season (6/29/22)”

Unsung Heroes of the Playoffs (5/10/22)

As 2022 playoff basketball rages on, it’s difficult to keep tabs on all of the happenings. Without multiple games played every night, it’s easy to miss the little things if you can’t catch every contest. Because of that, I want to stop and take a breather in the madness that is playoff hoops and shineContinue reading “Unsung Heroes of the Playoffs (5/10/22)”

A Draft Casual’s 2022 Big Board (3/2/22)

If you’ve read my draft grade articles, you know that I am a self-proclaimed NBA draft casual. I rarely watch NCAA games until March Madness, and when it’s time for the draft I have only basic knowledge of the guys being selected. I want that to change. While trying to watch a few games, IContinue reading “A Draft Casual’s 2022 Big Board (3/2/22)”

2021-22 Bench Mob All-Star Team (2/11/22)

The All-Star break is approaching, and the All-Stars have been announced. I’m excited because my three favorite players were all selected (Giannis, DeMar DeRozan, and Dejounte Murray). Last season, I named Bench Mob All-Star teams around this time. The teams were made up of snubs, such as DeRozan.  This season, I’m doing it differently. IfContinue reading “2021-22 Bench Mob All-Star Team (2/11/22)”

My 2022 Rising Stars Picks (1/28/22)

The NBA recently introduced the new format for the Rising Stars game on All-Star weekend.

My Top 10 Worst Takes Ever (1/6/22)

With 2021 complete, the Bench Mob Blog has existed for an entire year. That’s crazy. To celebrate that, I’ve gone through all of my past articles and put together a list of my worst takes ever. I was originally going to include some of my best takes too, but those aren’t as fun. I’d ratherContinue reading “My Top 10 Worst Takes Ever (1/6/22)”

2022 All-Stars So Far (12/10/21)

We’re about a fourth of the way through the 2021-22 NBA season. Every team has played a little over 20 games. So, just like I did last season, I’m making my All-Star picks if the game were to happen today. These are subject to change before the real All-Star selection.  Each conference has four backcourtContinue reading “2022 All-Stars So Far (12/10/21)”

7 Free Agents That Can Still Make an Impact (12/1/21)

NBA teams rarely finish a season with the exact same roster they began with. A trade or a signing is always made. Contending teams like the Lakers usually leave a roster spot open so they can sign a guy mid-season.  The Milwaukee Bucks did that this season, and on Sunday they picked up former All-StarContinue reading “7 Free Agents That Can Still Make an Impact (12/1/21)”

The biggest (also my favorite) article of the year is finally here. My top 100 players of the 2021 season. It took me a while to put this together. I started with around 150 players, and cut it down to 100 ( actually it’s 110. I have ten “honorable mentions”, which makes this a topContinue reading “Top 100 Players of the 2021 Season (9/19/21)”
