The Warriors land three players in the top ten on the Top 50 list, while other rising stars tackle the list for the first time as they try to take a bigger step.

We’re less than a month away from the start of the 2022-23 NBA season and with that, Locked On Podcast Network is rolling out a unique list of the 50 best NBA players for 2022-23 this week.

Locked On has teamed up with betting company BetOnline to measure and rank the top 50 players in the NBA based on how, if not playing, they impact their team’s spread or betting streak.

BetOnline has captured the top 50 players who moved these streaks. Therefore, they took the 50 best players who would move the lines, and ranked them. We’ll be posting it throughout the week on the Locked On NBA podcast, where our local experts across the country chime in on each player’s roster ranking for the team they’re covering.
