It's likely that there's a bust or two among them. Who will it be?

1. Towns
6. WCS
12. Lyles
13. Booker

If it's WCS it's only because of health.

I think Booker is overrated.

WCS

I'm also not completely sold on Towns. I think he'll be a good player, but I don't see enough of a dominant offensive/defensive game or athleticism for him to be a superstar

I think Booker. He can shoot, but can he defend?

I think they'll actually all do pretty well.

I don't think Booker will have a good rookie year. Even shooting the ball. Not strong enough for the NBA 3. He's showed that at workouts and some airballls in the Summer League

Good thing you don't scout. Probably one of the best shooters already in the nba

Great to revisit this. Kentucky guys are the most prepared guys period. Booker is the youngest guy in the nba and will probably be the second youngest by Ingram next year even. Lyles hasn't gotten much of a opportunity but recently started to pick up. Wcs has battled injuries but played well defensively. I really hope we add a guy like ulis next year

I don't think any of them will be a bust. Lyles should of stayed one more season at UK but he was always the one who was gonna have to adjust more to the NBA.

KIROE was right about a whole ton of stuff in this past year's draft. Hate it when people cherry pick like this. It's on par with the "predictions" that people make well 6 months into the NBA season.

Seriously. I made the same observation.

I'm protective of guys I've seen with my own two eyes all year in college and when people catch a video on YouTube then its over for them. I can tell you strengths and weaknesses for anyone in the sec. I can tell you that booker still has a ways to go as a defender but at i believe just turning 19 soon he can become average. Videos unless its game footage or actual practice footage being guarded is the poorest form of scouting its how darko gpt drafted though so I guess gms use the no defense method too.

Except, it's an opinion.

I'll take a opinion on game tape over shooting against no one. Obviously performance has proven true. For the most part guys under cal are very prepared for the nba.
