    Let's talk about the NBA Draft 2018

    who do you guys like, who you think is overrated?

    Draft seems to be littered with talented big men.

    I think if you are Phoenix you have to be a fool not to draft Ayton. IMO he has to most potential and upside out of anybody in the draft.

    I'm honestly not sold on Doncic. The pros are he has good size, has played professionally at the highest levels in Europe for awhile, good court vision, etc. But I think he will struggle creating his own shot, shooting in general and get burned on defense. Certainly think he can improve these things but I see his rookie season to be one of struggle.

    I also really like JJJ I think he is also one of those guys with a tremendous upside. I think a lot of his weaknesses are things that can easily be improved upon. He has good defensive instincts unlike Ayton and Bagley. Still kinda raw though.

    Really high on Miles Bridges as well too

    Yeah Doncic has bust potential written all over him. He’s going to find things much harder going against athletic freaks night in and night out and unless he has Bird/Nash-like IQ right off the bat.... I can’t see him doing much.

    Very curious to see if Trae Young can live up to the hype. Although he’s small this current NBA is tailor-made for him. Premium on shooting... no hand checking... right up his alley.

    JJJ could end up being a steal for someone. Apparently he crushed his workout with PHX.

    Porter Jr. could also end up being a steal if teams shy away because of his injury.

    Bemba is another one who’s high risk high reward. Reminds me of the hype surrounding Hasheem Thabeet when he was coming out.

    Young is intriguing to me. I really think he's simply more raw Curry, but he needs the right team and coach to develop him. I think the Mavs take Bamba who definitely has some potential too.

    I think the Suns, will be vastly improved by adding Ayton. Ayton + Booker with some solid free agency moves could contend for a playoff spot next year. It willl be interesting to see how these young guns work out. I really felt like NCAA basketball was amazing this year because of an increase in overall talent. My theory is more guys are focusing on basketball now over football due to CTE stuff. We had an amazing draft class last year and this one feels pretty strong too.

    it's been the stereotypical white/european player. Can shoot, has high bball IQ, good skills/talent but is slow and lacks explosiveness/athleticism lol.

    I see Doncic being a top 5 pick but honestly I wouldn't be surprised if he dropped further. Honestly, I think Trae Young is the real deal despite people saying boom or bust. May struggle initially adapting to length, strength and athleticism but I think he find his place. I think he's the most NBA ready scorer and has so many tools to do so. He's small but Curry is also a twink and that's who I liken his game to. Dude has range that will translate at the NBA level and open up his game.

    It's crazy, the top 10 projected picks alone are all filled with star potential not to mention there will probably be some sleepers. I'm liking the talent level we are seeing.

    As a Euro who followed Doncic a bit: he is a really solid player, I doubt he will be a bust, BUT I think he may be a locker room cancer. Word is, he had gotten a big head and is arrogant as fuk around team mates.

    I‘m high on JJJ myself, too bad my Lakers are picking super late, but the guys analysing talent have been excellent in the past and may find a diamond in the rough.

    I don't think he will be a bust either, I just think he'll have a rough start in the NBA, but neither do I think he will be a star in this league. could be wrong.

    Was hoping for Bamba, but his stock seems to be going up lately so he might not make it to #5.

    Either way, I hope they just take BPA at 5 and don't get cute with trading down. Unless it's a complete fleecing of course.

    it's a different thing in the NBA though. everyone is a beast, even the players that dont play much so he wont be the top dog. I hope he does well. I like his style of play. You dont need super athleticism to succeed in the nba but if you dont got that you better be supreme in other areas of your game. the way the league is evolving i think he fits the style of play very well
