I don't think Atlanta would change a thing other than the order of Reddish and Hunter. We've been happy with both players.
Yeah, but if you had taken other players on that list you would also be happy with them, right? Natural to be high on your own guys after a promising rook year.
Clyde, do you think your list is a little too slanted to people who got minutes and had quick success? The whole point of scouting prospects is to find the ones with the highest upside and/or best chance of achieving it, and that doesn't unfold within a half season for most players. I never liked Garland as a top pick but is everyone really convinced he won't be better than KPJ or PJ Washington, because both of them filled roles pretty well at various times this year? Is Brandon Clarke really the 6th best prospect now, because his team had both minutes for him and space for the exact thing he's good at right away? (And because, being almost 24 years old, he's already physically and mentally mature-ish). Is everyone forgetting some hesitations about Herro because he shot on the better end of how like most expected?
I haven't seen enough of everyone to know if that's the case or if those guys genuinely showed new long-term promise that others didn't. I just remember a lot of lists like this that had guys like Al Thornton or Sean May or John Henson after the 1st year.
