    Thank God. If he had JG and Jabari ranked high I would have been worried.

    Not sure what's worse - LeBron not being in group A or that LeBron is all the way in group H.

    In what universe is Paul George a 'true franchise player' but Kawhi is not and ranked 10 spots lower with 2 rings?

    That wasn't the point you were making

    The context was between 3 players, not every #17 pick ever

    Did my eyes fail me, or is Harden truly not on the list?

    Honestly that list is all over the place. It's not just the Rockets players. It's almost like he threw darts.

    Maybe he's going senile?

    I didn’t see Lebron either

    some of those names under “true franchise guy” are kinda laughable

    This is clutchfans, so I get how most of your have heavy endowment bias, but

    Tier 1
    Cade: clearly still the player with highest upside and have the most trade value to me. You can really tell when a guy can exert influence to the game with a bad shooting night, which Jalen isn't projected to be able to reaxh that level

    Tier 2
    Mobley: generational defensive talent who clearly has much more defensive upside especially as a weakside defender over jabari. If he develops consistent 3pt shot, his value should be ranked higher than Cade, but that isn't trending as likely based on what we have seen. So he ranks behind Cade

    Jalen: i'd out jalen green here based on his prospect as a generational offensive talent. But until he develops his playmaking and defensive skill, which clearly has a long way to go, he's got to be behind cade and mobley.

    Chet: has tons of upside but it won't be until at least in 2-3yrs where we can see his body develops and how his game translates to grown man bball. He is over scottie and jabari based on upside and weakside defensive potential

    Jabari: elite onball defender and shooter. If he develops his handle and 1on1 game should be ranked higher. But to be still huge upside.

    Tier 3
    Scottie Barnes: yea he is all great, but what is not talked about enough is his limitation as a consistent shooter which limits his ability and upside as the best wingman in the NBA. I don't see that he has generational talent in any skills so definitely the most overrated player imo here.

    Paolo:I have him ranked last because with all the talk about how he is NBA ready, his fans will be into a rude awakening to know he doesn't have generational offensive talent, unlike Jalen His playmaking prowess is only good for a big man but not overall. His defense will never be elite. Cannot possibly be an elite 2/3rd option for championship contender. Really glad he is not with us.

    you're eyes didnt fail you, these are the same guys that have screwed harden out of all nba selections after he averaged 30, but currently praise luka. I agree with draymond, strip these clowns of their voting priveledges

    Yeah I mean Bron and Harden have shown signs of decline for sure. But you can’t tell me with a straight face they aren’t still top 64 today.

    The point I was making is that Tari, a legit two way player with length showed the same amount of promise and talent as Paolo and Chet.... I wouldn't trade Tari for them, I think he will be better than both of those guys....

    Only way I believe him depends on his women's rights views.... I'm willing to like him over this if he liked Ghostbusters 2016

    There are lots of guys on this list that I would trade straight up for people he has listed lower than. Which, to me, makes the whole list nonsense

    The biggest surprised was Herb Jones at 55.
