    Not super scientific, but comparing his 2019-20 stats against our rotation guys, he'd have ranked ... 2nd in 3P% (Alan) 2nd in rebounds (Kofi) 3rd in FT% (Alan, Trent) 3rd in mins/game (Ayo, Trent) 3rd in points (Ayo, Kofi) 5th if FG% ... practically tied for 4th (Kofi, Ayo, Alan, Andres) 5th...

    The RJ Davis (UNC) selection seems mysterious, but as @soupy17's post shows, none of the other picks seem particularly outrageous. Some pretty highly ranked guys from the teams you named didn't make it ... #6 Jalen Johnson (Duke) #20 Devin Askew (Kentucky) #27 Isaiah Jackson (Kentucky) I'm...
