The 2021-22 NBA season is right around the corner which means season predictions and player rankings are starting to hit the scene.

On Monday, Sports Illustrated put out their ‘Top 100 NBA Players of 2022’ list, starting with 100-51. Chicago Bulls guard Lonzo Ball found himself ranked at No. 76.

See the reasoning from Jeremy Woo of SI:

“There’s always been some dissonance between Lonzo-as-concept and the role that best suits him, as he joins his third team in five seasons. Ball has made massive strides as a jump shooter, making a career-best 37.8% of threes on more than eight attempts per game last season. While still streaky, that threat allows him to play an unorthodox combo role: He’s limited playing off the dribble, but more dangerous functioning alongside ball-dominant creators. The Bulls are gambling that Ball will help unlock their new-look roster, where he’ll support Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan, playing directly to his strengths.”
