Deandre Ayton? Why?

Recommended Posts

Absolutely everyone has Ayton going #1.  What has he done?  I watched Purdue destroy Arizona.  Haarms destroyed Ayton.  I also saw him in the tournament.  He did nothing.  No impact on the game at all.  Half the time he was near the 3 point line.  Has anyone ever seen this guy dominate?  I also see Mikal Bridges from Villanova going in the top ten.  I don't watch them much, but in the tournament games I noticed Brunson, Spellman, Paschall, and of course Divincenzo went nuts.  I never noticed Bridges.  Is Miles Bridges from the Sparties a lottery pick?  It just seems this draft is super weak at the top.  Ayton #1 is truly mystifying.

Wow....you watch very little college basketball. It’s like my favorite thing to watch and cable has like a million channels showing games all over the country. Both those guys are legit lottery picks. You literally took a college freshman’s first game and judged his whole career based on it against a seasoned senior. Id compare Ayton to a young Olajuwon with a 3 pointer. Then you took like the last game of the season to judge another. Although I will admit Villanova is loaded with talent. I don’t know who you follow but these kids were legit all Americans and have huge upsides. I’m not sure Ayton goes number 1 but he is a top 5 pick and would be basically any year. What teams have you been watching because you missed a lot of great college basketball this year it seems.

Good to Know.  His first games were awful, and his tournament was awful, but he was a stud for most of the games in between.

I mostly watched the tournament and Purdue games, but someone who did catch my eye was Bates-Diop.  He could completely neutralize stretch 4's.  He'd be tough in the paint, and he plays smart.

Yeah Diop could be a late lottery pick. I think bigs that stretch the defense and 3&d guys will be the big focus. So Ayton, Bamba, Carter Jr., and Bagley and both Bridges...Knox...Trey  Young and a couple foreign guys will be named to watch. Big Ten was down this year so not a lot of talent I’d say outside Diop, Jackson and Bridges. Ayton might go #1 but mostly because the Suns likely will have the top pick and they are good at guard position with Booker and Jackson at Sf so a big makes most sense.

    • His own scouts?  The scouts are the same one who have been with the Colts for years. A couple of them have been on with the Colts for 19 years.
    • For a guy who tries to claim you like Ballard your true colors surface from time to time.   Like here.    This post.   By the way,  you were one of the biggest complainers about the 18 draft. The draft that most everyone thinks is an absolute home run.   How does your criticism look now?   You continue to fool no one...  no one but you.   As for 17....  we acquired a fair amount of talent.   But we were without some guy named Luck.   Perhaps you’ve heard of him?  And Brissett, as talented as he is, was not ready for prime time.  That contributed heavily to a 4-win season.   It’s not like this hasn’t been discussed for nearly a year now.  So why you pretend not to understand is curious...   unless you’re making an anti-Ballard argument,  which you are.
    • So you agree, he will get $40M guaranteed?
    • Yep. Here’s the thing. If you are drafting with a lame duck HC and uncertainty regarding the future defensive scheme...it makes far more sense to put  a bit more focus on offense...because they will transition better. Passing on all of that RB talent still irks me. And I would have been fine with WR on Day Two as well.   Passing on Kittle was also very disappointing...because he was so obviously going to be a steal...and many Colts fans wanted him.    But honestly, just give me Hunt or Kamara and my outlook on that draft is signicantly different. And give me one of those two + Kittle...and I am pleased as could be.
    • How is that almost identical?
