What's not to like about Boston? 1 top tier prospect, 2 second tier prospects (Hayward, Jonas), promising young bench players (Isaiah Thomas, Patrick Beverley, Fournier, Bazemore, Terrance Jones)

Sleeping on Boston...AGAIN!

Detroit has two top tier prospects, two second tier prospects and a boatload of other tier three prospects.

Two first tier (if you buy Drummond whole), 1 second tier, 2 third tier. Hayward/Jonas=Beal>Bledsoe/Waiters

no one is saying they don't like Boston. they just like Detroit more, which I agree with

I think Boston is the best constructed of the three serious TOTF teams (along with Philly and Detroit).  They've got the best complementary pieces, in my mind.

But, outside of Irving, the upside is a little bit lower, I think.

Interesting that you didn't include Gallo in your analysis, IP.  He's only 25 y.o.

What was the criteria to be eligible. Not saying the Knicks should be a front runner by any means. but a line up consisting of Rubio, Green, Sanders,Lopez and Derrick Williams has no mention? Strange.

With that being said I think it has to be Detroit.
If your team made it to a conference semi-final then your team was ineligible.

Gotcha. Thanks!

I was including Burke as a tier 2 prospect,  I think his ceiling is all star Devin Harris, but consistently that level. And even if you didn't buy Drummond whole his ceiling as a player would be hyper athletic Mutumbo.

You're including Burke as tier 2?

Let's do it like this

Tier 1: MVP Caliber player
Tier 2: Perennial All-Star Caliber Player
Tier 3: Fringe 1 or 2 time all-star, above average long-term starter
Tier 4: Average starter, elite role player

Boston's got 1 top tier guy (Irving) and the best prospect of the bunch, Detroit's got 1 top tier guy (Davis)

Detroit's got probably the only tier 2 guy as well (Drummond).

Boston then has 3 tier 3 guys in Hayward, Valanciunas, Gallinari. Honestly, I think Hayward or especially Valanciunas have a really good shot at tier 2, but I get that not everybody is on board with that. Detroit has 1 for sure tier 3 guy in Beal. I'm not high on Bledsoe, but I could see why you'd put him in tier 3.

Tier 4 guys: Isaiah Thomas for sure. I dunno. I'm high on Beverley, Fournier, Thomas, and Jones, but I picked them, so....

I still have Drummond in tier 1, even with this ranking and so that automatically puts Detroit in a  class above Detroit. As for tier 3,  Burke, Waitors, Bledsoe, Beal all belong in that category, and if you can make the Hayward argument for tier 2 then the Beal argument can be made also.

Hopefully this doesn't matter, but I actually just clicked on the wrong team accidentally.  Meant to vote for Detroit.  Stupid me.

IMHO, Detroit should win this in a land slide.

I'm really disappointed that you took my Joss Whedon comment to heart like this. I know you can hide behind 'opinion' and 'uncertainty regarding young players' and 'a genuine love for Andre Drummond nobody really understands', but we all can see this for what it is; a thinly veiled personal attack because I made fun of Joss Whedon.
