Agree Booker is too high. Ben Simmons as well. Markkanen and Porzingis too low.

I think it's a really good list.  Overall I think Knox & Murray had a shot at the first round but we couldn't fit everyone.  My strategy was to go for potential franchise players so I often went young, but it got tough toward the end.

For fun, if there's any interest in a 2nd round or a limited 2nd round:

31. Knox
32. Murray
33. Miles Bridges

Next 3:

34. LeVert
35. Winslow
36. Sexton

Which teams did well in this draft?

Well, on average every draft year produces 5 to 6 All Stars, so we can assume that this re-draft predicts that the first 20 players probably will become All Stars. Towns, Simmons, Porzingis and Russell have already accomplished this.

We will all be very curious about that Dallas team, with Doncic (#1) and Porzingis (#10) they look to be on the road to greatness. The future for Sacramento looks very bright as well with Fox (#4) and Bagley (#9) as possible superstars. The same goes for Phoenix with Booker (#6), Ayton (#8) and maybe even Jackson (#26)?

The Atlanta Hawks have Collins (#13), Young (#14) and Huerter (#24) drafted, so possibly 3 future All Stars? That seems very optimistic for them.

Chicago will have a future All Star frontcourt Markkanen (#7) and Carter Jr. (#15), while Indiana could have that as well with Sabonis (#19) and Turner (#20). The Celtics gets two All Stars on the wing with Tatum (#3) and Brown (#16). A team like the Lakers will still have multiple chances of getting an All Star with Kuzma (#22), Ingram (#23) and Ball (#27).

Some rebuilding/non-contending teams in the East like New York (Smith Jr, Ntilikina, Trier, Dotson, Knox, Robinson #28), Cleveland (Sexton, Zizic), Orlando (Fultz, Isaac #30, Bamba), Charlotte (Monk, Bridges) and Miami (Winslow, Jones, Adebayo) did extremely poor in this draft. (I would be scared to put this draft on one of their fan forums  :D)

Interesting tidbit to bring up how DA Russell is already an all-star and taking another look at who's ranked above him.  I was one of the voters who don't like his game that much and probably underappreciated him in my voting.  But it also makes me realize that the voters have a lot of faith in the potential of Bagley, Jaren Jackson, Jaylen, Siakam, and Wendell Carter  -- none of whom have really played all-star caliber basketball for any stretch yet in their career.
