If you're looking purely at upside, sure.  But you also have to weigh in their floors as well.  Cade Cunningham is Brandon Roy.  He's going to be in the NBA for a LONG time.  He may never be the #1 on a championship team, but he's going to be a star in the NBA.  What is Green's floor?  You don't have a clear consensus #1 prospect, yet have players graded out in the same tier.  Cunningham is in a tier to his own.  Green and Mobley are in that next tier, and I think you almost certainly have to take Green given the way the NBA has trended.  If you want to argue there's a bigger gap between Mobley/Green and Kaminga/Suggs/Barnes then between Cunningham and Mobley/Green, I'd absolutely agree.

I personally think Jalen Green is the best prospect in the draft. I don't think Cade's floor is "star" in the NBA, I think he's closer to an Andrew Wiggins level prospect than a LeBron/Luka. Green's ceiling is a scoring champ, MVP level player, he's in the 99th percentile in terms of athleticism and will be an elite athlete among elite athletes even in the NBA. I personally don't think Cade or Mobley have the potential to be the #1 option on a championship team, I think Green does. Kid is special, dude will make the Rockets must see TV.

Cannen Cunningham went from being the head coach at Highland Park Middle School to one of the highest paid assistant coaches in college basketball. Cade doesn't care about winning, dude sacrificed a chance at a natty to save his big brother, like when LaMelo went to Eastern Europe to save LiAngelo.
