I'm guessing a lot of the Parker votes coming from a bias

We are only at the top of the draft on years when the top of the draft has no talent

Parker. He can score in a variety of ways and has a very polished offensive game.

Parker, although Wiggins would be a close 2nd.

 

A few months ago I would've said Embiid...but injuries aren't to be taken lightly for a big dude. Especially ones during a short season (college). He's already experiencing back issues after playing around 20 to 25 games? Little chance he comes to the NBA and plays 80-90 games a year...unless of course these back injuries go away.

Wiggins or embiid, I think they clearly have the best long term value.

Parker just doesn't play defense and that's a no go for me.

I really like Parker but I think I'd have to go with Wiggins.

Wiggins? So who is making an outside shot on the Hornets then?

His jumper is still 100x better than MKG

Wiggins is still maturing physically. In other words the kid is still growing and filling out! As opposed to Parker who seems to be at or near the peak of his physical maturation. With that said Parkers only advantage over wiggins is his skill level and physicality. Wiggins already more explosive and much better individual defender as far as ability. With all that said I'd go wiggins over parker. Embiid was my number 1 as he has the best combination of size agility skill and potential, but its hard to take him over wiggins considering wiggins has all of that minus the bad back.

As far as Randle goes he'd have to develop more of an outside game to warrant a number one selection. I feel his game as it stands does not translate to the next level. He is a rebounder who is tough around the rim but not the shooter/slasher he would need to be a go to scorer in the NBA at his size. I'd still be happy to have him just not over Parker Wiggins or even embiid.

I'd trade away the pick for a premier established shooter.

 

Glad this guy isn't our GM ; )
