Big board: Kanter, Vesely over Williams
One of the few guarantees in the NBA draft is that different people evaluate talent differently. So while there are already a few different takes on identifying the top talents in this year's draft class, here's my final top 30 based on my own observations. I suspect you'll see more than a few variations from the other lists you've seen so far.
1. Kyrie Irving, Duke
Best case, he's Chris Paul. Worst case? A bigger Brevin Knight. Go back and look at Chad Ford's top 100 from December and you'll see Mason Plumlee was a lottery pick. Now Plumlee is back in school despite a weak draft class. One big reason, to me, is that Irving made him that much better when he was healthy.
