HOnestly any of the top 5 if this draft would be great for our future. I really do think the Lakers will do worse than Brooklyn but we are going to need the ping pong balls to go our way if the pick is to convey. I can see the Lakers having the 4/5th best odds come lotto time, a chance to jump up but most importantly it must not get bumped down.

I love that he runs like a deer in the open court. His movements seem like he is 6'8 to me. He is very graceful for a man of his stature. Just not very refined, and lacks effort. If we end up at like 3, he is definitely the pick to me.
My 2017 Draft Rankings:       My 2017 FA Celtic Rankings:
1.) Markelle Fultz                   1.) Gordon Hayward
2.) Jayson Tatum                   2.) Blake Griffin
3.) Lonzo Ball                           3.) No other realistic options
4.) Josh Jackson                          move the needle much
5.) Lauri Markkanen

Solid running jump. This is the guy with the biggest potential but motor and work ethic has been his knock. Maybe he catches the training and practice fever, but I doubt he has the competitive drive unfortunately. I'd still want him if there is a shot as he should be an elite big man regardless. 
My Top 5
Trade targets.      Draft.                     FAs
1. Davis              1.Fultz              1. Griffin*
2. Cousins          2. Tatum          2. Hayward
3. Butler              3. Jackson       3. Millsap
4. George            4. Ball               4. Lowry
5. Favors             5. Isaac            5. Gali

Something that I'm not sure how I feel about him is how soft he dunks it, rarely in this vid does he even hang on the rim. On the one hand I think he'd need to go up stronger in the NBA but on the other he could be being coached to dunk softly and save his body long term.

Of all the top 5 I feel I have the worst read on Ayton. Looking forward to the NCAA season to start up before I formulate to much of an opinion on him.

Shows nice athleticism, but nowhere close to a 44" leap. If you slow the clip down and stop it at his peak, his feet are at the crotch level of the guy holding the measuring stick. Unless that guy is enormous, he's displaying a vertical in the 30's, not the 40's.

That's only his born talent and is far from enough, Attitude is a must to reach the potential and he might not have it, i am low on him until he proves otherwise

Here is the video. His motor looks good, his jumper looks good, and he looks ripped

I've seen a 44" vert, and that is not what it looks like. He has closer to a 34" vert.

He dropped 31 pts in that first game. Looking good so far

LET'S NOT, we are the Celtics, we don't do that crap.  LA is tanking for us.

He's basically at the top of the backboard. That's a 44" vert whether your eye test agrees or not

Ayton is the guy I could see rising to #2 or #1. If he clears up his motor issues and shows he has a motor, he has essentially no glaring weakness after that.

If the pick conveys, and Donic, Bagley and Porter are gone already, interesting to see if Danny would take Ayton or Bamba..

Ayton has that crazy athleticism and outside shooting that we seem to love these days, but Bamba could be a sneaky good pick with his extremely elite footwork and rebounding..
