You need a new hate list now.

I kind of like Brown in the 2nd though.

For #10, it`s only Wagner. My main concern with him is his shooting inconsistency - I just don`t love his shooting body language. That makes him a prospect with the level lower ceiling. Similar to Kyle, these guys should be selected out of the top-10. The other top-10 guys possess a nice shooting touch except probably Barnes. But Barnes has a Giannis profile and his shooting can be improved. That`s a different story.

It doesn`t sound scary given Giannis` championship. Is it a broken mechanic like Ben Simmons has? Can it be developed to a reasonable level?

I would because you can get a massive superstar then.

Listening to a few of the "experts", they don't seem very high on him developing a shot.

He's a guy you love to have on your team, but his impact is capped by his limited shooting. Feels a little like Ben Simmons without the mental blocks to offer a probably terrible comp ha
