Bib’s NBA Draft Big Board 2019

I have spent countless hours watching games this year. From the games I was able to watch live on television to the games I had to watch off of Youtube. From the NCAA tournament to the players literally playing in high school gyms. From America, to Brazil, to Lithuania, Australia, Israel, Spain and anywhere else that basketballs bounce and are filmed. I’ve been able to watch enough to confidently speak on over 110 of this year’s prospects and that will start with this big board.

I have changed my philosophy somewhat. Before I began the site I spoke about players as far as potential alone. I didn’t care about what they did in year one, year two and so-on. I was willing to wait them out. These past two years that has made me spend way more energy than I wanted to explaining this position so this year I thought I’d try something new.

This year’s rankings factor in ability to make an immediate impact in a major way. Because of this many of the players that you love are not going to be as high as you expected and some you are sleeping on are going to be higher than you expect. This draft is loaded with guys who need the right fit to flourish and because of that I will do an additional board after the draft based on where guys land.

Without further ado, here are my top 65 players:

I’ll get into my reasoning behind my rankings later, both on the podcast and then in writing. Individual breakdowns for most of the top guys that I’m higher or lower on than most, and then a piece on Mavs targets for my Mavs fans.

I will say this on the surface. I tried to prioritize the big 3:

Buckets (the ability to get them.)

Body (Unique physical attributes or the body to not be pushed around),

Ballers (Guys that can be plugged into any team/system and be effective.)

Let me have it on twitter @Bibscorner lol
