Which draft prospect is best equipped to score big the soonest? 

Post#1 » by EthanLikesBBall » Wed Nov 18, 2020 8:34 pm

This is my first post. Be gentle. I am wondering which of these NBA draft prospects is going to come in scoring 15-25 a night. What do y'all think? Obi seems like a clear #1 to do that, but am I missing something?

Thanks.

Obi, no question. But he's the best player in the draft, most NBA ready and has the game most suited for the NBA - and should be #1 overall.

Outside of Toppin, probably Edwards followed by Nesmith.

Thanks. I'm also hearing good things about Bey and Hayes.

Every night? Probably none. However some of the shooters will go off from time to time.

Toppin is probably the ROY. There's really no-one in his way in NY. He's a hometown kid...they'll lose every game but he'll likely be the story of the season among rookies. I expect 20 ppg.

Edwards will be held down by his teammates all fighting for the spotlight. They (Russell, KAT, Beasley, Culver) have question marks and, as an ORL fan who watched a similar dynamic, it's unlikely that Edwards will pull away from that pack to stand out. Haliburton in SAC will probably face the same dynamic. Avidja will be buried (statistically) by Beal and Wall exerting themselves as stars. Ball could be great without putting up a ton of points. Patrick Williams-no. Okoro-more steals than points. Onyeka, Jalen Smith, and Wiseman-be quiet, kid and rebound for us.

I think Toppin runs away with ROY

Toppin, Anthony and maybe Ball would be my picks.

best equipped meaning best situation for it? Ball easily gets this imo he will be handed the keys from day 1.
Edwards wont get to feast Wiseman will be a garbage man Williams is a role player early on at best Okoro is a defensive guy
Okongwu is going to be fighting for minutes with that front court etc etc.
I mean some others taken later could go off if given opportunities when injuries occur or something and it would not surprise me
if Cole makes 14 teams ahead of ORL look foolish

Wiseman doesn't seem to have anyone ahead of him in the Warriors' line-up. Looks like he'll get minutes and some space to work with.
