Ranking degli starting-5 per il 2019-20 secondo FiveThirtyEight

Ranking degli starting-5 per il 2019-20 secondo FiveThirtyEight

Anthony Davis è un giocatore dei Los Angeles Lakers. Kevin Durant e Kyrie Irving sono andati Brooklyn Nets. Al Horford ai Philadelphia 76ers. Kemba Walker ai Boston Celtics. Jimmy Butler è arrivato ai Miami Heat. Kawhi Leonard e Paul George sono le due nuove stelle dei Los Angeles Clippers.

E potremmo andare avanti all’infinito. D’altronde la free-agency spesso capovolge completamente i destini della Lega.

Diamo allora un’occhiata a come dovrebbe andare la nuova stagione NBA, o almeno potrebbe. Per farlo il sistema CARMELO del sito FiveThirtyEight ha calcolato il WAR – Wins Above Replacement  – di ogni starter NBA (un fattore che calcola il contributo apportato alla squadra di un singolo giocatore), e li hai poi sommati per vedere quali dovrebbero essere i migliori quintetti della stagione 2019-20.

(Non sono stati inclusi nei quintetti i giocatori che salteranno parzialmente o completamente la prossima stagione, come ad esempio Kevin Durant, Jusuf Nurkic, Victor Oladipo o Klay Thompson).
