I must not be making my point very well. The point is who do they guard in the nba? About the only big who had any success in the playoffs were Horford and Capella. Capella moreso defensively (although he did hit a
Ton Of alley oops from CP and Harden) and Horford is a very good player at everything, but not great at anything. Neither of which are high impact players in the grand scheme of their respective teams.
I just donít see much value in a traditional big man in todayís nba, unless your name is Anthony Davis (and you can argue heís not traditional, although heís pretty close). I know itís blasphemy but even KAT was awful and got exposed defensively. I happen to think that was an anomaly, but itís a jump shooters game today and for the foreseeable future. If Iím drafting, Sexton and Doncic seem like great options. In terms of Doncic thereís more tapenon him than any of these other guys so GMs should know what theyíre getting with him.
Iíd stay away from Bagley. I know thatís a contrarian opinion, but I donít think his game translates.
