This is the kind of draft where you'd cherish 2 lottery picks. Kings so typical of them gave away #10. Glad they didn't get Donovan Mitchell or Kuzma.

Shout out to all of us that kept telling folks in the Draft Thread all year.....the 2017 draft was special.....and very deep!


My assessment of this draft is that is was a really deep draft and that there was legit talent on the top but not an obvious Simmons-like superstar. I think that's still the case

What I didn't think was how ready a lot of these guys look out of the gate. There's going to be a changing of the guard in the NBA soon with all the young talent out there

31 points / 1 Rebound / 4 Assists / 5 Steals against the Thunder....

OG! Good to see him getting recognized for his solid role-playing on a good team.

Also, Jackson's dunk on the Polish Hammer was nasty!

2017 Draft by RPM

1) Jayson Tatum........+1.80
2) OG Anunoby..........+1.51
3) Jordan Bell............+1.33
4) Donovan Mitchel.....+0.81
5) Lauri Markkanen......-0.90
6) Jonathan Isaac........-1.08
7) Bam Adebayo..........-1.41
8) Josh Hart................-1.58
9) Frank Mason............-1.89
10) Luke Kennard.........-1.95
11) Lonzo Ball..............-1.96
12) Dillon Brooks..........-2.06
13) Sindarius Thornwell.-2.52
14) Kyle Kuzma............-2.59
15) Frank Ntilikina........-2.62
16) Jawun Evans..........-2.65
17) TJ Leaf..................-2.83
18) Terrance Ferguson..-3.01
19) Dennis Smith.........-3.17
20) Dwayne Bacon.......-3.36
21) Malik Monk............-3.93
22) Justin Jackson........-4.22
23) Josh Jackson..........-4.69 (3rd-worst in NBA)
24) De'Aaron Fox..........-5.30 (worst in NBA)

I think RPM overrates a couple of players types (low usage defenders, bigs), so I compare guys with other players that are similar to what they are.

Donovan Mitchell with another big game!

32 Points / 3 Rebounds / 6 Assists / 2 Steals / 1 Block in a loss to Chicago.

In December, he is averaging 26 / 3 / 3

Those are the four no-brainers. No clear #5 at this point. I might go for Lauri Markkanen.

My bad, should've linked it.

Seen anything about how he's shooting off the bounce?

I'm torn between him and Collins.

no, he is starting now for Booker....still shooting like poo, and a turnover machine....decided I would quit checking up on him so often in hopes of being pleasantly surprised in a couple weeks.

If Ball's week turns out to be more of a trend than just a good week, I think his odds are still good at moving into that spot.
