Hall of Famer
My top 2 guys going against eachother! Hopefully we see them more on one another as the game progresses.
Bear in mind, these are just personal likes and dislikes and they have little or no bearing on where I think some of them may go in the draft. I happen to like Brice Johnson more right now than Marquese Chriss, but I have no doubt the Chriss will be drafted higher than Johnson because of being younger, and potentially having more upside. I think Robert Carter is the best player on the Maryland team, but have no doubt that Diamond Stone, Melo Trimble and Jack Layman will be drafted higher than him. Although I think Layman is very underrated. I think that if anyone can get A.J. Hammon's head on straight, he can be a starting center in the NBA. He's certainly talented enough. But right now, he's a second round pick.
If my two top picks (Hield and Dunn) are taken when we pick, then I think I have to take Jakob Poeltl. He's a very very talented 7 foot center that plays great defense. We don't need him, but if we can't get the player we need at seven, then I think he's the most talented player left there. Of course I say that without know who might slide down to us. If we were to draft him, then that makes Koufos expendable. Just musing on a sunday afternoon.
