I like everybody's draft pretty much, I think almost every team made an intelligent pick and strayed away from a lot of the mistakes teams usually make, but also this seems like the result of teams prioritizing different skills nowadays
Reminded me of the NFL draft this year where nobody really had a "bad draft" because everyone is working off the same analytics. I expect drafts in all sports to get a lot more "chalk" for the next couple years :francis:

Stat #3 - EFFICIENCY

While he did limit his mistakes, Johnny Davis wasn’t exactly efficient when it came to scoring the basketball. He finished with 42.7 percent shooting clip from the field, which on its own is already far from ideal for a primary scorer.

The advanced efficiency metrics were even less kind to J.D. His effective field goal percentage (46.3 percent) and true shooting percentage (52.2 percent) were amongst the worst in the class, ranking 37th out of 40 in both categories.

Davis was largely hurt by his lack of a reliable shot from the three-point line, both taking relatively few threes (3.9 3PA) and being poor at knocking them down (30.6 3P%).

Stat #4 - MIDRANGE

Johnny Davis’ preferred weapon of choice is the midrange jump shot, which partly explains why the efficiency numbers were pretty harsh on him.

Davis was one of just 10 players in the NCAA last season who attempted over 200 shots from the midrange. He ranked second to worst on that list when it came to actually making them, connecting on 84 out of 228 attempts, good for a pedestrian 36.8 percent knockdown rate

He took the most in the 2022 NBA draft class by far, owning a 20-shot attempt lead over second placer E.J. Liddell of Ohio State, who was much more efficient with a 99-for-208 clip for a 47.6 percent rate.

This is the one player I had serious reservations about and boy, it just gets worse and worse. The Wizards and drafting is tough shyt no matter the GM
Remember, Tommy Sheppard has been there since 2003 and was Ernie Grunfeld's top lieutenant.

Coli.
Ouch. The Knicks tried to trade up multiple times but our kids aren’t considered NBA starters or good prospects. The fact Alan Hahn said this sucks because he’s an official MSG employee and insider.


That shyt is deflating

it's really not deflating he is correct you guys don't have shyt, you either need to go all in and tank or keep being a treadmill team that good enough to win some games but not good enough to really get into the playoffs or trade for a star who wants out, ESPN put out an article about how the rockets GM/FO pretty much said the NBA is unforgiving to middle of the pack teams and this is the perfect example of it.

What?

Most of these dudes will not live up to expectations, A lot will be bust and if you re drafted 5 years from now the order will be completely different
