I think it's a pretty clear path to a stretch 4, where you get less physical play than at the 5 and Chet's length will makeup for any athletic mismatches, which won't be as prevalent as some think. The form is there and I think his 3 pt shot will come around, he just needs another 10000 reps.

i don’t know if he’s that switchable on the perimeter even with his length. there are plenty of nba wings who are big, long, athletic, and skilled enough to shake him if he’s isolated on them

I think you underestimate his athleticism

wonder what he will decide to do. one would think he would declare and head to the draft instead of playing a meaningless season of college bball.

where do yall rank him?

it wouldn't shock me if he's the first guard taken even if he doesn't play this year but he still might not come out regardless

If he declares

Banchero, Smith, Holmgren, Sharpe and Ivey is a damn good top 5 in this draft. 

After workouts/the combine, I give it a less than 20% chance that AJ Griffin falls out of the top 5. Chet Holmgren has a higher chance of not going top 5 than Griffin, IMO.

I don't think it's even a slight against Chet either. This top 10 is going to have some legit players. This is a deep top tier of talent. Some players are going to slip.

AJ's game is just perfect for the modern NBA. I feel like Paolo is what he is but we don't know AJ's ceiling yet. 

Paolo is like a better Jabari Parker, AJ can be Jimmy Butler with a jumper.

I like Griffin as a prospect but I cant get jiggy with taking him over Chet at 3. 

AJ Griffin is the prototypical NBA wing, he started the season slow due to a knee injury but he'll be a top 5 pick when it's all said and done.
