MY FINAL 2023 NBA DRAFT BIG BOARD (V.6)

I am proud to say that evaluating this year's class was both challenging and rewarding. This is the first year I put out a big board with more than 30 picks publicly. It is also the first year I have shared six different versions of my board to show the evolution of my process. I strongly encourage you to read this and discuss your thoughts, comments, and placements of guys for your personal board with me on Twitter. One of the greatest things we can do as humans and specifically as NBA Draft talent evaluators is to learn from each other. Enjoy the NBA Draft and I look forward to seeing where these prospects end up on June 22nd!
