So, they are saying that all 30 of the likely 1st round picks this year are like high quality NBA players?  The #30 pick in the draft, a player who is barely out of the 2nd round, is like Taj Gibson?

I say "baloney".  This is just more draft hype.  Half these players won't play 15 mpg.  Ever.  In their careers.  There just aren't enough minutes to give big minutes to new players like  that.  They're saying the #30 player drafted, just one pick out of the 2nd round, is like  Chicago Bulls starter Taj Gibson?

Sorry to throw cold water on your thread, kdp, I just don't believe this.

I'll shut up now and let everybody else weigh in.

Bob,

These are best case scenario's for each player.
Few will get to the best case scenario, so no, those player comparisons probably won't be realized.

Some of these guys on the list may very well become equals to their compared NBA players. There is even a chance that some of these guys fully blow right by the guy that they are currently compared to. The trick is to get a chance to draft the couple of the ones who may reach or go past their "ceiling".

With all of his draft picks still at Ainge's disposal, I would hope that he does not hesitate to use a bunch of them to move up as far as possible to get a chance at the best one. Certainly, some of the many picks that he has have to be used for something. Overpaying is not a problem.

Let's hope that Ainge gets us one of these types of guys.

Bob,

This were not intended to say that each of these players would be as good as the MAX ceiling player.

Just an early idea of the MAX they could (but most will NOT) get to.

I use this to get an idea of the "type or style" of a draft picks game more than anything else.

is Bender anywhere near Dirk now.......LOL NOT.

but can his early style be compared to him...yes.
