That's what makes Bagley so special, he's not only really skilled he plays so hard.
this class is pretty interesting at the top, Bagley looks like a future all star, Porter looks like a future all star, and Ayton looks like a young David Robinson.
I’ll take one of each. TANK!
Agreed, and that's why I would listen to offers with (high) draft picks for every Suns player except Booker and Jackson.
Bleacher Report ranks the top 50 MBB prospects.
In tonight's exhibition Ayton went for 31/10 on 13-16 shooting in 24 minutes. If he shows something defensively he's going #1.
ESPN projected him at #2 today behind that guard from Europe... and I have a really hard time picturing a 7'2" center going behind a 6'4" guard from Europe, no matter what the production.
Doncic is phenomenal but I think this team is already stacked on the wing. Ayton/Bagley is the perfect fit here but it doesn't seem like the Suns are a bottom-3 team anymore.
I like Doncic from what little I've seen but I'd be shocked if he went #1 overall with so many potentially franchise altering bigs available that played in the NCAA. I know teams generally pick BPA but if all else is equal for a team that can choose whoever they want I'd be surprised if someone gambled with that pick for Doncic over Porter, Ayton, Bagley, or even Bamba at#1.
I'm excited for the draft but I'm not looking forward to it like I was 3-4 weeks ago when it looked like the Suns would be horrendous this year and get a top 5 pick. They could still get a top 5 pick but it'll be interesting to see how far along Bender and Chriss have developed by years end because I think they'll play a factor in our draft selection, regardless of where the pick falls.
He just looks freakish. He's running around looking like David Robinson with these enormous hands and then such a soft outside shot.
Choosing between him and Bagley and Porter is going to be tough but yeah Ayton is freakishly high potential.
The book on him was always he didn't play hard, if he can get that down he probably is the #1 overall pick
I wonder if it is still the case that teams will draft bigs over guards when both are considered elite. If you think about it, guards are having much more impact in today's NBA.
The top 3 teams in each conference last year were the Cavs, Celtics, Raptors, Warriors, Spurs, and Rockets.
The only traditional big who was a huge factor in team success for those teams was Aldridge, who was universally derided last year.
Who are the top bigs now?
You could argue that Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins are #1 and #2 in the league. Hasn't translated into wins.
Of course, that doesn't mean teams aren't salivating over the next KAT or Embiid, just that the next Harden or Curry is more likely to have an impact on team success if trends continue.
