We win the lottery and we're picking first. Who you taking?

Ayton or Doncic.

I think Ayton will be a dynamic player. But he's a center and Porzingis is a center. Taking Ayton meams KP plays the 4 for here on out, which I'm very concerned with him playing the 4 for his career. Doncic is a more natural fit. SG/SF and KP as the center is a safer bet. But I think Ayton will be a bonafid super star. The thought of having Porzingis-Ayton twin tower will be a night made for opposing teams. I'd risk it and choose Ayton.

Mikal established as the clear first choice pick of fans by 15 polls already

Craft God aka SGA

Frank-PG-truthers get their wish as Frank can defend 1's as SGA is 6'6.

Frank-SG-truthers get their wish as SGA is a pure point that plays with excellent pace and craft. Hoops like a New York PG too.

He may be a stud bro but I just dont think he offers much extra gravy we dont have in Frank already, Frank projected to have the pace n craft too with his long strides n IQ
