SI.com released its full Top 100 NBA players of 2017 on Friday, and Isaiah Thomas and DeMar DeRozan weren’t thrilled about where they ranked.
DeRozan, ranked No. 46, and Thomas, ranked No. 47, took to Twitter two tell us they disagreed with where they were ranked. They were hardly the first ones; there was opposition to nearly every single ranking.
If it’s any consolation they were Nos. 61 and 88 last year, respectively.

45? SI rankings are a JOKE!!

There is a history of players disapproving of the rankings. John Wall also felt he was deserving of a higher rank in 2014.
Sorry, guys. Blame this dude.
