Best sophomores of the season

This season will likely be remembered for Golden State's incredible record, LeBron's return to Cleveland, the ascendancy to "All-World" for Steph Curry and James Harden, and the arrival of Rudy Gobert.

At the start of the season we could have named dozens of centers globally that NBA teams would have preferred over Gobert. But now only a precious few would be named before the "Stifle Tower," who finishes the season at the top of our sophomore rankings. Although Gobert's second-year classmates have not made a big impression on the league just yet, Gobert himself more than makes up for it.
