    Dont love the embiid comparison, Ayton is way more athletic.

    I don't like the suns but I hope he helps Devin booker because booker deserves to win a champion and the way he is going he will be in talk of the all time greats

    Mark my words that the Phoenix Suns will be one of if not the most fun teams to watch in the NBA. Payton, Booker, Jackson, Bridges, & AYTON?! PHX is back and in full swing. It won't take long before the world is on notice.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a number 1 picked hated on more than Ayton. He was projected number 1 for a reason. Nothing in the NBA is a sure thing anyways.

  • Koh Smoger

    If I was betting someone to be a bust in this draft its definitely Trae Young not Ayton. Let the dude play, before you call a man a bust. Remember when people were calling Embiid a bust.

    Dont compare this guy to joe, Joe embiid is a bust, he was shaqtin a fool MVP this year, lmao!! This guy DeAndre is gonna be way better.

  • Dane the Dude
    Dane the Dude 27 days ago +1

    all the hate comments are probably salty hawks or kings fans mad they didn't get the first pick, like how tf could you even tell if Ayton is a bust?

    • TheMejiGamer
      TheMejiGamer 27 days ago

      Dane the Dude 20 ppg and 10+ rebounds a game doesn't sound like a bust, he is consistant, most of busts in college were not consistant, we've seen this guy play trust me he is probably the safer pick in the draft

      Mo Bamba is the same height as Ayton, but he has a 7'10" wingspan. Not saying he's a better player, just saying if you think thats superhuman, add 5 inches.

      Dhanu Parwito 27 days ago +4

      they meant that big man in the NBA nowadays are used to spread the floor as they are now should have been able to shoot 3s. Back then big man don't shoot 3s or even have the ability to shoot 3s as well as big man nowadays.
