CHOICE A: Your team has just earned the No. 1 overall pick and will select a player that didn’t necessarily catch your eye in college but is widely considered the most promising talent in the draft

CHOICE B: Your team has just earned the No. 1 overall pick and will select a player that played extraordinarily well in college but isn’t considered to be the best player from his class in five years

Cohen’s Analysis: The college game is vastly different than the pros. The NBA is faster paced and teams rely on transition play far more than in college where the pace tends to slow down. So judging a player exclusively off their performance in college may not be the best way to determine whom to select in the draft. I prefer Choice A in this case, particularly because it would be a disaster if a team passes on a player that eventually matched his soaring reputation.
