Ranking the top NBA Players of 2017-18 with Napoleon’s Algorithm

Hello all, my name is Luiz Juarez and I am better known in the underground fantasy sports community as “Napoleon”.    I have been an avid Fanduel/Draftkings player for 3+ years and have recently dabbled with real-time player analysis.   This past year, I created an original algorithm to rank NBA players.  The algorithm doesn’t merely utilize stats, win shares or efficiency, but instead analyzes how vital each player is to their respective team over the amount of minutes that they play.  Players like Serge Ibaka and Andre Iguodala might not be considered very good NBA players anymore, but per my algorithm they both fall in the top 50 for 2017-18.  Anyways, here are the top 50 NBA players for the 2017-18 season per my algorithm:

Note: The algorithm doesn’t take into account games played, but requires that each player listed play above 25 games.  For this reason, players like Kawhi Leonard and Gordon Hayward are not listed here.
