Rj and jjjr would have been a toss up at 3 but i definetly believe Rj is better than anyone in last years draft outside of luka and jjr.
I’m taking Ayton and Bagley over RJ all day
I think he goes anywhere between 4-7 last year, Carter is the first player I'd say he's definitely better than, and you can make a case for him over anybody except the top 3
Then go back a year and it's the same thing, no way he goes above Fultz, Ball, or Tatum (Boston would've taken Tatum 1st if they hadn't traded the pick), then you could make an argument for anyone 4-7 over him. It'd be a debate at least, we're not using hindsight
2016 I don't think Brown gets picked before him, but Ingram and Simmons definitely do
But also, Ja doesn't go higher than maybe 4th in 2016, every other year he's in the 6-8 range. He's not terrible, but he's very overrated and shouldn't be a top 3 pick
Agreed with all of this. I don't see RJ going above Young last year, because it became clear as day that ATL is trying to build a GS-esque team, Young is perfect for that, RJ is not. So I think 6th and 7th is where the discussion would really start for him. I do agree he goes before WCJ, the question is, who would ORL like more between him and Bamba. No way he cracks the top 3-4 of last year's draft.
2017 I don't think he falls past 4. Him vs Josh Jackson would be a pretty easy pick in my opinion. And ya he goes over Brown pretty easily. I think the discussion would be a good one between him and Ingram. RJ had the much better season. But I do think Ingram would end up going #1. Ingram was a lights out 3pt shooter at Duke, the far greater defender and well. Then add in his crazy length, I still think Ingram goes 2.
And ya I think most drafts RJ 4-6 is a good pick, Ja 7-10 is a good pick.
