Not really a secret anymore but confirmed by the last batch of players inserted into the annual NBArank.

Previewing the 2022-23 NBA season, ESPN revealed the top five players of NBArank. Checking the players on the previous lists, 100th to 26th, 25th to 11th, and 10th to 6th, the top five players were simple to foresee. The order ranked European stars Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nikola Jokic and Luka Doncic from first to third, a potential addition to the French national team Joel Embiid in the fourth spot, and Stephen Curry sitting fifth.

Experts had to predict what they expected from each player during the season.
