    All 3 of the top picks have exhibited what made them unique. I wouldn’t say anybody has separated themselves as better, it’s just a skillet preference thing.

    Their respective teams should all be thrilled.

    Looking at summer stats, Chet and Paolo have better:
    PPG
    FG%
    3P%
    REB (well, Chet is higher but Jabari beats Paolo)
    STL (Paolo is higher but Jabari beats Chet)
    BLK (Chet is higher but Jabari beats Paolo)

    This includes Jabari's nice night last night that boosted all his stats. Conversely, Chet had a +15 +/- last night in Orlando.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm ecstatic with Jabari and think he is the ultimate fit next to Jaylen. Paolo would have stunted Jaylen's growth. So don't take my statements as criticism. If I'm building a championship team and I already have a franchise player, Jabari can be the next Scottie Pippen type of player as the Bulls were not gonna win without Pippen.

    All I'm saying is this. I think Chet is a baller and as such, OKC will figure out how to utilize his skills even if that means moving him around or finding the right complimentary players. I respect your opinion that you think he's too small. My opinion is he'll figure it out. Neither you or I are correct since we are both projecting. So let's resume this conversation in 5 years. ;)

    Chet's been impressive! What a draft class again. All of top 5 picks I think has chance to be special

    How you turn „not gonna be a star” into „it will be a problem”? He is just not a natural scorer and in the NBA you need to be excellent in prior stages to be one. He was not a natural scorer on any level. Wont be a problem since he can hit outside shots consistently. And please watch KD and Dirk tapes before draft before you compare them

    Chet’s floor is Michael Jordan with Hakeems defense.

    Jabari Smith will be Bargnani

    Post an overtly simplified meme and then hide behind the "it's just jokes" response. Where else have I seen that playbook before?

    Bradley = tall white guy
    Chet = tall white guy

    Comparison ends there. Why didn't you compare him to Yao or Mutombo? They're tall too.

    Hey, whatever floats your boat. You do you.

    He should have compared Chet to Manute Bol and no one would call him out. Skinny tall dudes without a shred of racism. :D

    Rockets got the worst Summer League prospect of the lot.

    I mean, we'll see what happens when it's real games in the NBA and things like defense and playing within a system matter, but he's a Summer League bust and those things are never forgotten, legacy-wise.
