NBA Draft Big Board with Chris Stone

Sam Vecenie chats with Chris Stone of FanSided on the latest Game Theory Podcast about the new 2017 NBA Draft Big Board Sam published over at Sporting News on Thursday. Our basic order of operations: First, we discuss the overall strength of this class in comparison to the 2016 NBA Draft. Then, we start going through the board in this relative order (note: not the order of my board). Markelle Fultz, followed by Josh Jackson, Lonzo Ball, Dennis Smith, Jonathan Isaac, Jayson Tatum, Malik Monk, Lauri Markkanen, Miles Bridges, Justin Patton, Bam Adebayo, Robert Williams, Harry Giles, John Collins, Luke Kennard, and Mikal Bridges.  Within there, we also chat about some of our favorite fits for the 76ers or Celtics and some general team-based stuff, but this is mostly a very nerdy edition discussing draft prospects.
