Dec. 15, 2015 — The Final Top 50

Hello, folks. These never get easier, especially given the presence of wonderful players on teams which may get knocked out early in the postseason. Plus, there was that wild final week of the 2015 season that saw several close finishes in just one 26 1/2-hour period.
