As the NBA off-season continues, all of the big news stories and free agency signings seem to be winding down. As someone who mostly writes about the NBA here at WTP, I need to find some way to get some content out. That brings us to what absolutely nobody asked for, but you’re getting it anyways! Welcome to Ty’s Top 50 NBA Players!
Every day for the next 50 days, I am going to be counting down a list of who I believe are the top 50 players in the NBA.

The #47 spot belongs to LA Clippers wing, Tobias Harris. Harris honestly might be the most underrated player in the entire league. Harris was drafted in 2011 by the Charlotte Bobcats (RIP) with the 19th pick, but was later traded to the Milwaukee Bucks on draft night. Harris has been a journeyman ever since coming into the league playing for the Bucks, Magic, Pistons, and now Clippers over seven years. However, he had started to break out very recently and last year proved he was a top 50 player in the NBA.
Last season, Harris averaged career highs with 18.6 PPG, 5.6 RPG, and 2.4 APG. He spent half of last year on the Pistons, but then was involved in the Blake Griffin deal to Detroit and was sent to play for the Clippers.
Harris is one of those guys who puts up big numbers on a nightly basis, but nobody will ever consider an NBA superstar. It also doesn’t help that he is buried amongst the other NBA superstars in the West. Be ready for Harris’ game to elevate even more this season as he is the Clippers’ number one scoring option. It didn’t feel right to make a top 50 countdown and not include Tobias Harris.
