Ayton's package of size, strength, athleticism, fluidity and skill is really incredible for a guy his age. He absolutely has the tools to be the next great big man in the NBA, but I have heard multiple scouts talk about their concerns with his motor. I really love what I've seen from Bamba, and I do think the Gobert comparisons look pretty apt, and he even looks to have decent form on his jumper. FWIW, he swallowed Ayton up the couple of times I've seen them head-to-head. With him and Robert Williams, I expect I'll be watching a lot of Texas next year. That's quite a front court. Haven't seen much of Wendell Carter, but I've hear the young Horford comparison thrown around a bunch. He'll have the luxury of having Trevor Duvall setting him up at Duke. Even though the Celtics (hopefully) wont' be in the market for a PG, I'm excited to check out Collin Sexton at 'Bama. He's a great athlete and apparently insanely competitive with a Paytonesque capacity for on court shit-talking.
Know anything about Mitchell Robinson? Seems solidly behind Ayton/Bamba/Carter and typically Williams among the bigs, but he sounds pretty interesting. Doubt I'll be watching much Western Kentucky though.
Don't know too much about Troy Brown Jr., but man do I love the name.
Top end of 2018 sure looks tantalizing, but to think that adding a guy like Miles Bridges is a pretty middle-the-road expectation for next year's pick is pretty damn exciting too.
