Adrien Payne lookin like a young David West
I really like Kyle Anderson and Adreian Payne but both of them look to be such bad defenders. Especially Kyle. He is extremely slow and unathletic. I don't see him being able to keep anyone in front of him at all. Adreian looks like he has the potential to become a good defender. His issue is more focus on that end than anything else.
Jarnell Stokes. Masai, make it happen.
The players that I really like:
Glenn Robinson III
Players I don't prefer:
Alright so I'm bored today so I thought I would throw down my draft picks in tiers for the top 30 guys (draftexpress)
Tier 1: Superstar potential. Complete skill sets. Elite impact players
Tier 2: Potential all-star. High impact players.
Tier 3: Borderline all-stars. These guys are the league sleepers who should have solid, long careers. Moderate impact players.
Tier 4: Solid 2 way players that are inefficient in high-usage roles, but are a big plus as a defender. Bust potential low. Moderate impact players
Tier 5: Physical specimen with tons of potential or has extremely intriguing skill set. Could potentially be complete players but may also be complete busts. Major projects. "Unknowns" tier. (basically here is where I place guys I have no idea about, even though some I am very high on)
Tier 6: Specialists. One-sided players, may stick around the league for offense or defense. Impact is low. Bust potential moderate.
Tier 7: Struggles to find a spot in the league. Tweeners or majorly flawed. Bust potential high
Parker, Exum, Vonleh,
Hood, Napier, Stauskas, Ennis, Harris,
Smart, Payton, Robinson III, McDaniels
Tier 5: "Unknowns"
LaVine, Gordon, Saric, Capela, Grant
McDermott, Young, McGary, Adams
Nurkic, Warren, Porzingis, Payne
Hard to place:
Hairston - Somewhere between tier 3 and 4.
I totally agree with you here though. But I would put parker into the 1st tier. That dude is carmelo anthony 2.0. Not good enough to carry a team to the promised land while being to selfish and ball dominate to play with other stars to enter the promised land.
I think Inglis could slide into tier 4.
RIP Tom Sterner
So i guess Jarnell Stokes is the flavor of the week here, whatever. I don't mind him....... IN THE 2ND ROUND. First round? no way!! There will be better players out there available at 20.
Parker does have Anthony 2.0 written all over him, which is exactly why I have him in Tier 2. Melo is very good, but he isn't a superstar, he lacks the defensive ability and the unselfishness that is required for him to be a superstar. Now, Parker may become that superstar eventually, but from what we saw from him in college it isn't looking like he will be anything more than a Melo, who is not a superstar.
