    It's largely assumed that the choice for the number one pick will be between Ayton and Doncic.

    Who do you want?

    Have to go with Ayton. PHX has never had a franchise type big man, now they can. Only way I wouldn’t is if Ayton suffers some catastrophic injury between now and draft.

    Question, is there a reason why Ayton always wears a large knee wrap on his right knee only? Does he have a history with his right knee?

    I choose Ayton.

    Since he has an outside shot this solidified the pick for me. Centers have to have a versatile game in the modern NBA. Also I think he is the safer pick.

    Now the Suns need a starting PG.

    Ayton for sure. If Doncic is the pick the Suns brass better pray he's a future HOFer.

    I think Doncic is an amazing player. I will not be surprised if he turns out to be the better player, but I have to go with Ayton. That kid looks like a beast, and the Suns desperately need a quality big man. If they had Anthony Davis on the roster, and no JJ, Booker, or Warren, I'd probably say go with Doncic, but the way their roster looks, they have to go with Ayton.

    Doncic will be a good player I just don't think he fits on this team. I do not believe he is fast enough tot play PG at this level which means he would have to play one of the other positions we have players at.

    Ayton seems to be a legit big that doesn't come around that often and fills a major need.

    fans can rightly debate which is, or will be the better player.
    but even if the suns prefer Doncic, there is no way they risk passing on Ayton

    This is a very impressive draft class at the top but there isn't a can't miss superstar, IMO. But there's at least 8 prospects in this draft that wouldn't surprise me if they became "transcendent". And most of them are bust proof, health notwithstanding. So, yes, I could easily see Doncic outperforming Ayton. But I'd still take Ayton first too.

    It might just be that the upper part of the draft class is so talented that there might be multiple stars that emerge when we look back verses there not being a can't miss. Only time will tell.

    What comes to mind is other drafts like 2003, 1998, 1996, 1995, 1984 to name a few. Those classes were much like these in that there were really talented players at the top and NBA front offices were all over the map on who they thought was the sure fire hit in those classes.

    Let's hope this class is something similar to those.
