Mullayo's NBA Draft 2021 Big Board

My big board is a uneasy combination of consensus players and my more efficient metric (PCP40) stars. The points created per 40 results are posted, so it's easy to see who is comparatively inefficient, yet has enough 'upside' to rise above.

It wasn't easy for me to integrate the two concepts, so I just upgraded the consensus 'stars' that I feel will succeed despite their flaws. Likewise there were high metric scorers who have huge warts that may hamper or even prevent their translation to the the NBA, such as being too short to defend, unathletic or unable to shoot at the league level.

The bottom line is, I went, first and foremost, with players whom I think will succeed in the league for one reason or another. If I have second thoughts between now and the draft, I may edit the rankings.

The best mainstream big board, in my opinion, is Tankathon, by a long way. They must have some metric basis too, because a lot of valuations are similar to mine, they're just less extreme than I have been.

I have just adjusted the 2021 draft class for strength of schedule and it shook a few placings up.

Posted below is my big board post SOS, plus the New PCP40 rankings, Old PCP40 and the difference in between

There are 50 or so players I didn't post results here for, but they were too low to bother with. So if you're missing someone they're probably amongst that lot.

I assume everyone hates it, but we'll see in three of four years I guess.

So what do you guys think?
