Watching Jaylen Brown play, I find myself saying, "Meh". Athletic yes, but does he really contribute? Having very little sense of how rookies are supposed to fit into the NBA these days, I did a little research using statistics I frankly don't understand and that are probably ill-suited to the task. Blundering about I settled on Hollinger's Valued Added statistic and, for those member of the draft class of 2016 who have enough playing time to event show up on those stats, found that the 2016 draft class ranks as follows: Hernangomea, Juan - VA = 10.8 (on only 9.9 mpg) (draft rank 15) Hield - VA = 1.3 (draft rank 6) LeVert - VA = -.7 (20) Siakam - VA = -5.1 (27) Brown - VA = -5.9 (3) Murray - VA = -5.9 (7) Luwawu-Caborrot - VA = -15.2 (24) Chriss - VA = -17.4 (8) Baldwin - VA = -17.7 (17) Valentine - VA = -21.1 (14) Dunn - VA = -27.1 (5) Sabonis - VA = -47.8 (11) Ingram - VA = -51.4 (2) These figures seem to show that Mr. Brown is doing pretty well, but not 3d best, as one would hope for a #3 draft pick; and this doesn't account for Ben Simmons. Clearly it is early to judge, but do you folks who, unlike me, watch non-Celtics games, think that this is a decent ranking of the 2016 draft class to date? Is Ingram really that big a disappointment? Is Brown better than some the players ranked above him?
