You’re right, you need this one. I wrote back in 2016 that Russell could become a poor man’s Harden. He has a higher EFG% than LaVine, Tatum, Mitchell, and Brogdon.

BTW, the Lakers have done really well with all their picks over the last six years, I don’t know why.

Starters for other teams: Russell, Randle, Nance, Zubac, Ingram, Ball, Hart, Bryant

Role players: Clarkson, Svi, Wagner, Bonga, Bradley.

Only Anthony Brown failed to stick in the NBA. That’s 13 out of 14 drafts picks that made it.

It would be interesting to see how well other teams have been able to find talent.
