Now, remember, all you young listeners, you're coming out of college or maybe not or whatever you're doing. Resumes important. Johnny Davis and principal, but you know it's also about the interview process. General manager Tommy shepherd did his work out here. I think he was somebody that he appreciated what we were trying to do because he knew we were trying to kick his butt and he fought through it. I think our coaches were impressed with him and his ability to compete. Imagine that you go there to be an IT professionally and make you play one on one basketball. So you're interview, you might not be asking a one on one, but be ready for questions. I mean, wizards head coach west on cell junior made Johnny Davis go up to the whiteboard and draw a place, talk about pressure. Take him to the board and have him walk me through different situations. Different defensive scenarios and he was able to draw plays and do some things on the board which were impressive. And don't forget to sell yourself. What can you do for them? Not the other way around. Johnny Davis. I think I fit in is a two way player, especially on the defensive end. I keep saying it, but you can never control if the ball goes in the hoop or not, but you can always control your effort and intensity on the defense of it. Good answer, Johnny Davis. And I hear the job pays well. Magic selected duke Ford followed by Joe with the top overall big Gonzaga 7 footer Chet homegirl went to Oklahoma City and jabari Smith. I think a lot that he'd be the top pick he went third to Houston. Mystics lose in Seattle, in Ji Chun and 9 birdies in the first round, the leader of the women's PGA Championship. Second round underway right now, and adley rushman, this young talent is coming through for the Orioles. Homer doubled drove in a few runs as the Orioles shut out the White Sox for nothing.

"Got really good defensive instincts he takes. He makes really good reads on the defensive end to shoot the gap and get steals and he rebounds his position. You know, he's not a knock down three point shooter, but he can get his own. And he's a really good wing star. And you can read more about the Johnny Davis pick on WTO B dot com, the mystics saw the storm live up to their name by storming back and scoring the final ten points of the second quarter to steal back the lead at halftime.

"Against Iowa state, that'll be on TNT. 7 10 p.m. eastern, Texas tech against Notre-Dame. That'll be on TVS. 7 45 p.m. eastern auburn against Miami. That'll be on truTV. Disrespectful to auburn. To Barry Smith, let's disrespectful. Jabari Smith on truTV is disrespectful. Doctor Kessler on truth TV. Unbelievable. 9 blocks today, by the way, for walker Kessler. Cameron mcgusty on truTV. Disrespectful. 8 40 p.m. eastern Purdue against Texas on TNT, 9 40 p.m. eastern, Arizona, TCU, on TBS. Let's go to this Wisconsin Iowa state game real quick because obviously Wisconsin is playing in Milwaukee. That is an advantage. And Johnny Davis will be coming off a massive game. He's got 14 points and like a 14 O, I think 14 straight points for Wisconsin at one point in the Wisconsin Colgate game when the badgers pulled away from them. And finished with 25. Oscar sheepway bounced in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Keegan Murray bounced in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Is there because for people who don't know at CBS sports, we do not vote for national player of the year until after the elite 8 before the final four. That's when we will announce those awards in that week before the final four. So these games that are happening right now, they matter. Even if Johnny Davis goes on a 25 point per game run and gets Wisconsin to the final four, is that is there any scenario where he could pass Oscar she way? And when the Jersey Mike's Naismith player of the year award. I think it'd have to be a pretty stellar run at this point. Oscar shibe, I think, has cemented himself as the clear FrontRunner. Now, if Keegan, if excuse me, if Johnny Davis is going to drop 25 and just keep Wisconsin rolling, then I think there's a real legitimate discussion about who is going to be our national player of the year, but right now I've got she way number one and Johnny Davis number two, Keegan Murray number three. That is my personal order. I can't imagine it changing, but the way that Johnny Davis played in the second half today was it's possible I could change my mind. Yeah, I think it would have to be like a Kimball walker like run through the end of the late tournament. And then you can have a conversation. But at this point, I'm assuming, yeah, Oscar sheepway will be the national, the Naismith player of the year. And Keegan Murray and Johnny Davis could maybe finish two and three in some order. I guess there's a scenario where OJ abaji could get super hot with Kansas going to the final four. Maybe we're throwing him into the top three, but even after a disappointing loss to Saint Peter's and don't forget, Oscar C boy was awesome against Saint Peter. Ain't his fault. Ain't his fault, Kentucky fans. You point the fingers a lot of different places. Ain't his fault. I'm assuming he's gonna win the Naismith. Player of the year award. But I know some people sometimes ask, why this game here and that game there when these television executives are putting the schedule together for Sunday. My understanding of that two 40 because basically you have two stand-alone windows. The 1210 game and the two 40 game and then after that, you're going to have multiple games on for most of the rest of the night, though duke Michigan state probably gets about an hour, 55 minutes to itself. So, you know, I remember a few years ago, there was a game that was the first game on Sunday. And so it was a stand-alone game. And it wasn't like this. If you try to pick the best game or the next best game or the next best game, you would not pick this game. And I remember talking to, you know, somebody who is involved in these conversations. And I was like, hey, listen, I'm not questioning as much as I'm just curious. Why is that game the game that gets everything started on Sunday? And the answer to that question, I thought this was sort of interesting behind the scenes stuff. That two 40 eastern. The 5 15 p.m. eastern window, leading into 60 minutes. That's the big one. That's the best one. That's why duke Michigan state is there, right? But the next best window, my understanding is, is the two 40 p.m. eastern window. That's the next most desirable window. So you have to find the game that you want there. And then put the other game that's in that pod before it. So that they lead into each other. So basically, somebody decided that we want Villanova, Ohio State in that two 40 p.m. eastern window, and unless I'm wrong, and if I am wrong, then I'm just going to have to apologize. But can you confirm for this? Confirm this for me. Houston, Illinois, and Villanova, Ohio State are being played at the same place. I think that's right. If it's not just I take back everything I said, we'll Yeah, not a feel free to weigh in if this is incorrect. I believe that's right though. Looking it up here. This is something I should have looked up before I started talking. Now, you are absolutely correct, jeepy. Okay, good. Good. Well, so that's why that is the way it is. Because you pick what game you want. Thank God I was right. Nailed it. I nailed it. Never doubt. I don't know why. I don't even know. I don't even know why I questioned myself. Ridiculous. Basically, you decide, what do you want that two 40 p.m. eastern window? Villanova House state, okay, what's the other game happening in that building that day? That's going to be your leadoff stand-alone game. Houston, Illinois. Maybe I'll be a television executive someday. You know, maybe I'll transition and being a television executive. The big game, 5 15 p.m. eastern. Duke Michigan state, it will be the 6th time that Tom Amazon actually chefs gave coached against each other in the NCAA tournament. No two men have ever coached against each other in.

"NCAA tournament games, NFL, Champions League, PGA Tour, and some of the best films and shows being made right now among them mayor of Kingstown starring Academy Award nominee, Jeremy Renner. So just shout out peacocks or dodo birds or leaky black or larnell in the comments. Leave your Twitter handle or your Instagram handle with your comment. And if you win, nada will contact you and hook you up. All right, strong job. Good to see you. And I wish I could tell you that the first Friday of this NCAA tournament was awesome. But relative to Thursday, at least it was kind of boring. Top seed Arizona cruised to an 87 70 win over ripe state. Three number two seats played duke Villanova auburn. They each won by at least 17 points. None of them even came close to pulling a Kentucky number three seed perdue, blew out Yale, three C Texas tech glue out Montana state, three C, Wisconsin, got tested, but got by Colgate. 16 gains were played on Friday ten of them were decided by double digits. Strong jaw, you tell me was I just spoiled by Thursday or is it true that Friday was mostly just just okay. Y'all. It's a good start to my podcast. Thursday was fantastic for starters. Friday was just okay. You know, there was some good games there were some close games, some of the top teens were tested, most notably number three seed Wisconsin that came down to the wire. Against Colgate. But on the whole, I think Friday was relatively disappointment. It was pretty bland, especially in comparison to what we got in round one on Thursday, which was just a ton of upsets, a ton of games coming down to the wire. That was not the case on Friday. No. Listen, you can't have the peacocks on every day. That's not the way the incident of a tournament works. And by the way, kind of a weird moment with the peacocks because seton hall got smashed by TCU. Late Friday. And in the postgame press conference, Kevin willer was asked about his future because he's been widely connected to the Maryland job. In fact, most people in the industry believe that soon, he will be named the next head coach at Maryland. At which point shaheen Holloway Saint Peter's coach will, you know, eventually become the next coach at seaton hall. Shaheen, of course, played there and used to work there and so it all makes sense. And usually coaches in Kevin's situation will just say things like, hey, you know, tonight's about my team about my players, you know, all of the speculation about my future. We can discuss that another time. And he was just like, you know, I'm going to sit down with my agent and we'll talk it out and I'll be real honest and, you know, if I'm not here, if shaheen Holloway is here, that would make me the happiest person on the planet. It was like, wow, Saint Peter has got a game in a few hours and you basically just announced to the world that their coach will be leaving them very, very soon. So it was just an interesting situation. Did you catch any of that? I did, and the timing is just incredible. If you're a seat and hall fan, I get that timing wise, it's just got to be awful. I mean, they just lost 69 42 to TCU. It's the third biggest tournament loss for seaton hall in program history. Stephen hall shot 29% from the field. I mean, it was, it was just a dreadful performance and if I'm a seat in hall fan, I've got to be just I great at Kevin Willard because it feels a lot like he's just, hey, I'm looking past this game. I don't really care. I've got my I've got my next spot picked out, it's on you, shaheen Holloway. If you've noticed in these postgame press conferences, you see a lot of coaches and especially a lot of players, very in tune with what people were saying. You know, it's like you saw in the Houston postgame. It was like, you know, we had heard a lot about jelly walker. And so, you know, we wanted to try to keep him under control or the Providence players were like, we saw everybody was picking South Dakota state. And you know, we were like, we're the biggie's champions. I'm paraphrasing here, but a lot of that we heard what people were saying, we saw what people were tweeting. We saw it was on Instagram and if you acknowledge that that is been noticeable over the past two days, then you have to acknowledge this. The scene helped players have been seeing and hearing that their coach is leaving. And there's no way to prove that that played a role in this, but for Satan hall to come out and get smacked like that. I think they shot 28% from the field. You know, I don't think it's unreasonable to suggest that maybe just maybe all of the speculation about their coach leaving might have caused some issue that led to them playing as poorly as they played all season. Yeah, I mean, good luck trying to overlook that. I mean, the potentially the future of the program that you're playing for is in doubt at the very least. Now Shaquille Holloway, if he does end up being the seat hall coach, I think that's going to end up probably being a really good fit. But if you're a player, it's really hard to ignore some of that noise, whether it's on social media, whether it's through the media, and the way that they just came out completely flat in this one. Credit to TCU, they looked really good. Mike miles had 21 points. It's my guy. TCU ended at 35 year drought between NCAA tournament wins, really, really impressive for the horn frogs there, but yeah, if you're seeing hall player, it's got to be hard to block out some of that noise. And I would imagine they entered this game with that at least in the back of their heads knowing that potentially Kevin Willard could be on his way out. There's no question. So like I said, 16 games played on Friday, ten of them decided by double digits. It was obviously one of them. One of the ones that wasn't was probably my favorite game of Friday. And that was Illinois Chattanooga. Illinois wanted 54 53. And what at 54 53, despite the fact.

"He takes these long kind of looping lines toward the rim. To try and get by guys. And in the NBA, that's when the help comes to get you. And reels in and ropes you in. And it's a lot harder to gain separation when you don't have that suddenness necessarily. And you take those longer looping lines because guys are athletic, they can recover a little bit more easily. And the help is almost always going to get to you when you take those like wide angles toward the basket on your drives. Right. Look, I think Johnny Davis is going to be like a high little starter. I love the way he defends. I think the shot is going to be fine. Like I think he's a better shooter than what the numbers indicate or whatever. I think he's going to make shots in the NBA. He just takes a lot of tough ones right now. And that's totally reasonable given what his role is. The other thing I want to call out with Johnny Davis is Bart torvik noted this part Bart's statistical website is fantastic. You guys should go look at it. But in games against top 50 opponents, Wisconsin has played 12 of them so far. Johnny Davis isn't just the best player in the country. He is like drastically the best player in the country. It's not really all that close. He's averaging 25 points, 9 rebounds, two assists. Shooting 41% from three in those games against the top competition. When the games get tough and when the best opponents play Wisconsin, he's been at his best. That's a lot to me about how good Johnny Davis is. I think that when you take that with the overall production, you take that with he's not a bad athlete by any stretch of the imagination. Like he'll be an average athlete in the NBA. With the shooting with the defense with everything else he brings to the table. Yeah, I wouldn't take Johnny Davis at 5 necessarily, but I have him at 6. I really like Johnny Davis quite a bit. Yeah, and the other kind of call it is like he hasn't been taking or making threes. He's been taking one or two in the last like 5 or 6 games. Again, this is like if you're the defense is allow you to drive, you're getting to laying in two games going at 14 free throw attempts. That's fine. I think a lot of stuff's going to expand. I do worry a little bit kind of what you said about NBA defense. The bumps that he has going to land to push off a Big Ten guard. That's different if tomorrow Derozan. Lengthier, bigger, stronger two guards, threes. He's not going to have the same impact to hit over the top. So you hope the three kind of gets back to where it needs to be, the mid range shopper stays where it is still a really high floor and an island a lot right here in the draft. Okay. Let's take a quick commercial break. Now that we're outside of the top 5 and move forward here.

Again, this is like if you're the defense is allow you to drive, you're getting to laying in two games going at 14 free throw attempts. That's fine. I think a lot of stuff's going to expand. I do worry a little bit kind of what you said about NBA defense. The bumps that he has going to land to push off a Big Ten guard. That's different if tomorrow Derozan. Lengthier, bigger, stronger two guards, threes. He's not going to have the same impact to hit over the top. So you hope the three kind of gets back to where it needs to be, the mid range shopper stays where it is still a really high floor and an island a lot right here in the draft. Okay. Let's take a quick commercial break. Now that we're outside of the top 5 and move forward here.

And it's a lot harder to gain separation when you don't have that suddenness necessarily. And you take those longer looping lines because guys are athletic, they can recover a little bit more easily.

I love the way he defends. I think the shot is going to be fine. Like I think he's a better shooter than what the numbers indicate or whatever. I think he's going to make shots in the NBA.

The other thing I want to call out with Johnny Davis is Bart torvik noted this part Bart's statistical website is fantastic. You guys should go look at it. But in games against top 50 opponents, Wisconsin has played 12 of them so far. Johnny Davis isn't just the best player in the country. He is like drastically the best player in the country. It's not really all that close. He's averaging 25 points, 9 rebounds, two assists. Shooting 41% from three in those games against the top competition. When the games get tough and when the best opponents play Wisconsin, he's been at his best. That's a lot to me about how good Johnny Davis is. I think that when you take that with the overall production, you take that with he's not a bad athlete by any stretch of the imagination. Like he'll be an average athlete in the NBA. With the shooting with the defense with everything else he brings to the table. Yeah, I wouldn't take Johnny Davis at 5 necessarily, but I have him at 6. I really like Johnny Davis quite a bit.

"78 win over Iowa's now averaging 27.5 points and 9.8 rebounds in Big Ten games this season. David cop, we did a listen to precinct. Top 101 college basketball players. If I remember correctly, you wrote super hard for posh Alexander, but you nut, you never mentioned Johnny Davis, even once. Neither did dead leg, neither did strong jaw. Neither did I. This is truly an out of nowhere story. Three star recruit at a high school average 7 points last season as a freshman now as a sophomore. He's averaging 22.6 .7 .4 rebounds for Wisconsin team that I've got ranked tenth in the top 25 and one. At this point, Johnny Davis, it looks like a first team all American, perhaps a national player of the year and a future lottery pick in the NBA draft. I'm not sure anybody could have seen this coming. So you tell me how wild from your perspective is this Johnny Davis story that we're watching unfold right now? Yeah, it's pretty wild. I mean, that matchup last night. It wasn't just Johnny Davis, also Keegan Murray, same boat. Both those guys just role players last year for teams that were loaded with vets. Obviously, in Iowa's case, Keegan Murray was behind Luca Garza. And then, you know, with Wisconsin, they had like 5 seniors on that team. Johnny Davis was just a role player. So you had to be pretty plugged in. So salute to you, Gary, to know that Keegan Murray and Johnny Davis were going to be the breakout stars that they were, but I will say in our dribble handoff, Gary, I had mister Keegan Murray listed as my breakout player pick for the season. So I whipped on Johnny Davis, big time. But I hit on Keegan Murray and they were both spectacular last night, which turned a game between two teams that I didn't think were going to be very good this year. And they're like a really good game between two teams that you could reasonably see making the NCAA tournament, especially in the case of Wisconsin, which, as of today, is four and one in quad one games. You make a good point pulling Keegan Murray into this story as well because like you said he was a role player last season. But he did show some things in limited time. Like he was on NBA front offices, you know, radar. After last season, based on, you know, he's a long forward who can guard in space and the thought was if he could come back and show that he's an improved shooter. Like he's somebody who might be able to enter the draft after his sophomore year. You saw that coming, some NBA people saw that coming as well. I don't think anybody saw the Johnny Davis thing coming. I know I didn't. And you could see it early. I mean, they're multi team event. I forget which tropical destination they were in. But during that feast week event, you could just see the fact that he was putting that team on his shoulders. And what's crazy about his numbers is the fact that Wisconsin typically plays at a slow pace. So if you score 23 points a game, but you're playing for Arizona and you're been mathurin or whatever and you get 35% more possessions a game, the numbers are still impressive, but and Johnny Davis's case, they're even more impressive because it's not like Wisconsin's going, you know, guns blaze and getting up and down the court and transition every possession. So that also is what makes it stand out. It's just that the usage rate and the fact that he remains efficient when he's got the ball in his hands like every possession. It's interesting because there had been a thing in recruiting in recent years where it had been suggested to some 5 star prospects. Like you don't want to go to Wisconsin, even if you're an in state guy because if you're trying to flourish as an NBA prospect, you know, that's just not the place to do it. And Johnny Davis is blowing that out of the water right now because our buddy San basin at the athletic, I think it's got him now, you know, going in the top 5 of the 2022 NBA draft. And so again, as we sit here on January 7th, still a lot of time. But if we were turning in a top 101 list today, he'd be on it and he might be at the tip top of it. But people who are unfamiliar with the specifics on him, so people who aren't Wisconsin fans probably. He was ranked a 164 in the class of 2020. In state product, his first offer, according to 24/7 sports, came from Wisconsin Green Bay. Now eventually he did get Jaime drawers. West Virginia offered marquette offered the Iowa team he torched last night. They eventually offered, but he decided to stay in state and play with Wisconsin. His father, this is interesting to me. And I think something worth pointing out is Mark Davis, who played collegiately at old dominion and then played in the NBA for the box and the signs. And so, Johnny Davis is another example. And what is a growing list of examples of prominent prospects whose father was a professional basketball player? I mean, you look in the NBA right now, there's Steph Curry, son of a pro. Klay Thompson, son of a pro Austin river, son of a pro democracy bonus, son of a pro, Tim Hardaway junior, son of a pro, Jaron Jackson junior, son of a pro. Obviously Kobe Bryant, son of a pro. And then in college basketball right now, you've got Johnny Davis, son of a pro. Jabari Smith, son of a pro, AJ Griffin, son of a pro. And I have talked to NBA front office people who tell me, this is actually something that they value. Like, I know when the grizzlies were evaluating jaren Jackson junior, one of the things they liked is that he was the son of a professional basketball player because you grow up in it and you get to witness. Whether you recognize you're doing it or not, you witness what it takes to play at that level. I talk to Adrian Griffin a few years ago for a story. He, of course, is AJ's father, because he's got an interesting deal. He has a son who was getting ready to play at duke. Men's basketball and a daughter who was playing at UConn, women's basketball. So he had children at like arguably the biggest men's brand and the biggest women's brand in college basketball. And one of the things he noted to me was that AJ grew up in the gym. He'd go to practice with me. And he would, and then, you know, he'd get home from school and I'd take him to the gym. And so he was just around it all the time. It shouldn't be that, I guess this is similar. It shouldn't be shocking that Charlie wood looks awesome at golf, right? I mean, he's just around it all the time. He could hit balls whenever he wants. He's got a simulator in his home. His father is the best to ever do it. So I love the Charlie wood story as much as anybody else, but again, not that surprising that he's in advanced golfer for his age given who his father is in the way he was raised. And I really do think it works in basketball similarly. That's what front office people have told me. It's what Adrian Griffin told me. And now here we got Johnny Davis, another prospect who was the son of a professional NBA player. Yeah, Gary, what do you think this means for your little guys? Do you think it means that they could be pretty good middle infielders with soft hands? Like you once were? They're gonna be average middle infielders with horrible arms, so really just second baseman not short stops. And then, you know, they'll hit they'll hit a little bit. Maybe they could host a podcast someday. Who knows? Who knows? But yeah, my children are not growing up with the athletic advantages of maybe Johnny Davis and other people are. By the way, Johnny Davis is a twin. His brother Jordan also plays for Wisconsin averages about 8 minutes per game. And then I didn't know this until I did a deep dive on Johnny Davis. He has two younger siblings, also twins. So the family is four kids, twins and.

"Up, another guy that I got a lot of questions about and I do want to answer at least one of them because I think Johnny Davis is really interesting. Zack tran at Zachary trend 19 asked, can you see Johnny Davis moving into the late lottery slash mid first round discussion by the end of the year? If so why, if not, why not? I'll be honest, I think Johnny Davis is there right now. I would probably have Johnny Davis right around the number 15 mark on my personal board. The why is that his athleticism and strength combination? I think translates really, really well to the next level. He's somewhere in the 6 four four 6 5 range he has long arms. He's strong as hell. He's tenacious. He switchable one through three, I think, defensively. He could have some problems with some of the quicker ones at the NBA level, but I don't really see him having too much trouble with twos and threes. And I think that his strength level particularly might even allow him to be a manageable player down onto the threes and fours that are a little bit bigger and longer than he is. So on the defensive end, I'm a big fan. Offensively, we've seen some real shot creation stuff that I think will translate pretty well to the next level, not to say that he's going to be like a primary option for anyone. But I do think that he is someone that will be able to attack in a straight line off of a closeout whenever he gets a reversal. He's going to be able to knock down shots, I think, in a pretty reasonable clip. I kind of see him as a guy that if you're in that ten to 15 range, I think he's a totally reasonable pick right now in the other part of the Johnny Davis experience that I think has been really, really good is the consistency..

"He thrives as a pick and roll creator who can spray the ball out to shooters. And for him to be as successful as he's been thus far with a roster that just does not fit what his skill set is in any way shape or form. I think pistons fans should be ecstatic even though they have not won many games. I think they've won 6 games this year. I would be really pumped about what I've seen from Kate Cunningham so far. I think all of the athleticism and ball handling has translated in the best possible way. I think that over his last 9 games, ten games, he's averaging like 20 points, 6 assists, 6 rebounds, like it's really remarkable what he's been able to do over the course of his early career since he's gotten back from that ankle injury early in the year. So the best thing for me is I would want shooting around Kate Cunningham. I think that additionally, jabari smith's athleticism does translate really well next to the deep bay. If Sadiq bay ends up being a longer term keeper and even though he is not shot the ball well to start the year, I do think I would continue down the road with Czech bay because he is a player that while he's not a crazy athlete, I do see him as someone who is strong enough to defend multiple positions at the three and the four. Who I do trust to shoot on some level and hopefully be able to make some higher level decisions throughout the course of his career, maybe as he slotted back into a role that has a bit less usage than what he's currently forced to do with the pistons right now. So I would I think I would take jabari Smith. I think he has the highest upside of anyone in this class and I think that he's a really nice fit with kade Cunningham with their front court pieces. The question for me is more. Jamaica Smith also fits with Isaiah Stewart. I should say as well just because Isaiah Stewart is someone that isn't necessarily the best athlete, but the more that I watch, Isaiah Stewart and Kate Cunningham offensively, the more I do think that Isaiah Stewart's really gonna have to shoot the ball long term because he's just not at all a threat as a vertical spacer in pick and rolls. He just ends up kind of taking up space in that mid range area where kind of really likes to operate and that's a concern to me long term. I really don't like the shape of this pistons, roster, around cape Cunningham. I frankly don't know that there are any like, oh my God, you have to keep this guy, players on this roster. I would continue down the roads to deep bay, and Isaiah Stewart, but the rest of the guys on this team, I don't know that they're necessarily going to be a part of the next Detroit Pistons like playoff team, or certainly maybe the next Detroit Pistons top four seed in the east. So it's kind of where I'm out on the pistons. I would look to move Jeremy grant if the deadline, I would look to move as many of these older veteran players for whatever assets I could. And then I would try to rebuild this off season via free agency where they project to have quite a bit of cap space, and I would really focus on shooting athleticism and defense. I would not focus on some of the things that Troy weaver has focused on thus far as a general.

"To that 2020 NBA draft class with LaMelo Ball with Anthony Edwards with all of those guys, I think that I would feel like LaMelo Ball is a level ahead of where I had where I have all of Paulo jabari Smith, Chet holmgren, but I would say that I would have palo ban Caro and jabari Smith and chat homegirl certainly ahead of where I had James wiseman and Anthony Edwards at number two and number three. So I hope that that kind of gives a gauge of where we're at in this 2022 draft class by comparing them to the 2021 and 2020 classes. Okay. Let's go to this next one here. The best guard defender in the 2022 class is essentially the topic here. And Alex, who's handle is draft film school, asks the question is Dyson Daniels, the best guard defender in this class. Look, among players that I think are likely to be selected, I think Dyson Daniels is really up there. If I was kind of crafting like a top group, he would definitely be in it. Let's say that kadari Richmond is probably out of this conversation because he has not been nearly good enough at this point to where he looks like he'll be a 2022 prospect. I think he's shaping up more as a 2023 prospect if he ever figures out the offensive side. I probably would have could already Richmond a level ahead of Tyson Daniels if we're being honest, but his offense is just nowhere near good enough at this stage to really be able to enter the 2022 draft class. In terms of best guard defenders, I would say that Johnny Davis also stands out. I thought he's had a really, really strong defensive season for Wisconsin as well. And we'll talk about him in a second here with a follow-up question that's going to be coming. But I really like Johnny Davis, but the thing about Dyson Daniels is that I think that his size and his length and his toughness and his overall quickness, whereas Johnny Davis is more of a strong defender. Dyson Daniels is a bit quicker and I think even slightly more tenacious on that end. I think he's going to be able to handle lead guards in a way that Johnny Davis may not be able to or players like Johnny Davis may not be able to. I'm trying to think of other guys that even really fit into this conversation here. It's kind of hard to even find some in this class. I don't think this is the best class when it comes to high level guard defenders. There's no davion Mitchell in this class in my view. I don't even think that anyone really hits the high level defensive upside on the perimeter of Jalen suggs who ranked it number two on my board last year in large part due to his potential defensive acumen. So yeah, I think that the question here from Alex over at draft film school is apt. I think that I probably would have Dyson Daniels as of right now as the top guard defender. I love the way that he slides his feet. I think he switchable one through three. I think that he's really disruptive with his length at the point of attack. The way that he handled, for instance, the thing that stands out to me is often our first impression, right? And the first game that I watched Tyson Daniels play with the G league ignite this year was against south bay, they played against Mac mcclung and some of those guys. And look, Mac mcclung is not an NBA level player in my opinion..

"The last guys before him, I believe may have been Deandre ayton and Luka Dončić in that draft class. Guys that are just like hyper elite prospects. I didn't have any tier one guys in the 2021 NBA draft process, including Anthony Edwards, lamella ball, all of those guys. So I would not have any tier one prospects in the 2022 NBA draft as of right now. I'm sure that penny and I at the end of the season will probably go through this and answer this question in a bit more detail. And try and rank prospects compared to other draft classes and all of that fun stuff because that's a really good gauge in terms of how good these prospects are is we kind of dive deeper and deeper into the NBA draft season. But I would say that I certainly would not have any prospect in the 2021 NBA draft or any in the 2022 NBA draft class. In my top three in the 2021 class, so I had kid Cunningham one Jalen sucks to Evan mobley three Jalen green four, I would not have any of jabari Smith Paul ban Caro chat home grand Jaden ivy within that top three. I think that you can make a case that jabari Smith is pretty close right now for where I am to that Jalen green ish level. I would still probably take Jalen green even given the kind of concerns that we've seen, removing that, removing the context of his struggles early on with the Houston Rockets, just remembering what he was with the G league ignite last year as a high level scorer who put up a bunch of points and had an immediately translatable skill set in terms of shooting, shot creation ability to get to step backs, explosive athletic ability, body control, everything like that. I frankly think I would still rank jaylen green just slightly ahead of the jabari Smith palo banquero class at this point. So I think that once you get into all of jaylen green, Jonathan, Scotty Barnes, I think that I would probably take Paulo over where I had Paulo and jabari Smith over where I had Jonathan kuminga and Scottie Barnes last year in that third tier kinda all to themselves. Whether or not I would take Chet in Jaden ivy. I think that those two right now are pretty close to that level. I think I would probably default more toward jet holmgren being ahead of that group. So it'd be a ranking of. Cade Cunningham, Jalen suggs, Evan mobley, followed by Jalen green, jabari Smith, Paula banquet, Chet home, grin, and then I think I would have both come in Barnes ahead of Jaden ivy right now. So it's a weaker class at the top. I think that that's the best way that I can frame this. It's just a very, very tricky class right now to evaluate if you have a top 5 pick if your team is going to end up with a top two pick in this class. I don't think it's quite as strong as what the normal draft is..
