Based on what? Brown is a very physical and willing defender. Russell isn't a great defender (or elite shooter like Book/Hield) and Hield is an elite shooter with nothing else. I honestly only know what I've seen of each and I don't disagree with your rankings, just wondering if your reasoning is the same. Hield, to me, is the biggest question mark...amazing 3pt shooter, the times I've seen him play-he absolutely avoided defense (granted, a few years ago), got a big deal and BENCHED soon after. Puzzling.
Jaylen Brown scores similar numbers, but I wonder what he'd do in a leading man position, like Booker?
Lavine, also a bundle of questions for me...mostly BBIQ, as he has all of the tools. Why is his value questioned by Chicago fans?
I love Booker's ferocity but I can't say I've seen enough to really evaluate. I suspect I'd value him like I value CJ...trade him to ORL and let him be Harden in front of a defensive wall and he'll put up 30/10.
Bookers all around offensive game is on another level from these guys.
