Doncic and Young were unanimous and along with Ayton are the final 3 for ROY.  Obviously Bagley and Jackson also made the team.

Kind of crazy that this draftís top 5 are legit the best players in the draft (as of right now).They would be in a different order in a redraft but as of right now the top 5 would remain the top 5.

I really can't see how Knox didn't make it over Shamet and Huerter and frankly you could make arguments he was better than Robinson and Gilgeous-Alexander (though Robinson's win shares were awesome).  Sexton is the only one on the 2nd team that pretty clearly was statistically better than Knox.  Wendell Carter not making it either is very surprising.  The 2nd team really is a pretty poorly selected team.

I don't think you could, unless you simply ignore shooting efficiency

All the choices look good to me, even Mikal as most votes of any player not on an All-Rookie team

Just some spot checks to see what other years were close. 

Looks like '91 draft had 4/5: Larry Johnson #1, Billy Owens #3, Mutombo #4, Steve Smith #5.  Missing is Kenny Anderson #2 who didn't even make 2nd team either, but went on to be an All-Star in Year 3, so things worked out okay.  Stacey Augmon #9 made it.

'92 draft was close.  Shaq #1, Mourning #2, Laettner #3, LaPhonso Ellis #5.  Missing is Jim Jackson #4 (might have made it to but remember he missed all but 28 games his rookie year in a contract dispute).  In was Tom Gugliotta #6.

'96 draft was also close.  Iverson #1, Camby #2, Abdur-Rahim #3, Marbury #4.  Missing is Ray Allen #5, but in his place was Antoine Walker #6.

'03 draft was close. LeBron #1, Carmelo #3, Bosh #4, Wade #5.  Missing is Darko #2 (ha), in was Hinrich #7.

'08 draft was close too.  Rose #1, Beasley #2, Mayo #3, Westbrook #4 are all in.  Missing is #5 Kevin Love (think he went on to have a decent career).  In was Brook Lopez #10.

Edit: missed '93 draft: Webber #1, Anfernee Hardaway #3, Mashburn #4, Isaiah Rider #5.  Missing was Shawn Bradley #2, and in was Vin Baker #8.

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

Yes, I don't see anything wrong with the selections. And certainly not Knox, who has looked like a potential bust.
The thing that Knox has going for him is that he's super young, so a lot of years to improve.

I want to promote the fact that Knox did not make either team to drive down his trade value in the Knick offer for AD!! Are you listening, David Griffin?

Hey David, his TS% was 47.5! That's awful!
