Yes! I've come to hate that term. Such a crowd pleaser but it's meaningless. Best player how? Now? Yesterday? Three years from now projected? And best at what? How are you making that decision?
Best player just means most talented prospect.
Most talented now? Yesterday? Three years from now projected? Okafor was more talented than Porzingis at draft time. Collin Sexton is probably the most physically talented player we could get right now. Are these your guys if you go BPA?
As far as I'm concerned, it's a platitude and not a strategic approach. Highest overall ceiling means something. Best current value means something.
I disagree with Okafor being considered more talented. He was more skilled offensively, but KP was by far more talented. It’s extremely vague, but bpa is always going to be opinion based, but it means the player with the highest ceiling. Not just “today”, the player that’s going to be the most effective in their prime. To me off eye test that’s Miles, Sexton, and Mikal in our current draft position.
