Thought this was a very interesting article. They re-drafted this class based on what we know now about these guys. A little surprised they had Harden 1.

All they did was list the players in that draft in order from highest to lowest cumulative win shares they've racked up over the years. Not much to say.

Curry should be 1st not 2nd
Teague should be 4th not 7th
DeRozan and Carroll should be higher

Curry or Blake should be 1 and 2... Lets not sleep on Blake here... the dudes a beast... Harden over either of these guys... LAWL.

Curry no doubt should be #1 overall, but Harden/Griffin is tough. I'd tend to go guard given the leagues lighter rules as well as allowing Harden to have more success than he probably should (in getting to the foul line and traveling on a lot of drives. Anticipate the third step, defenses...)

They are probably a wash defensively, although I remember Harden being a really good defender in college, not sure what happened there.

Tyreke is #4 in my book.

This list is a cop-out. Win-shares is not a good enough argument. Ty Lawson should not be that high at all for example. Curry is easily #1, and I'd take Blake over Harden, too.

IMO top 5 is....

1. Curry
2. Griffin
3. Harden
4. Teague
5. DeRozan

Carroll should be a bit higher too maybe

Curry not at #1 is a joke. Every GM in the league would take Curry #1 if they knew he'd be this good. The writer is a moron and loses all credibility IMO.

the list is constructed from top to bottom based on cumulative win shares thus far in these player's careers, it's not an opinion piece

When they wrote the article Harden was still talking about being the "Real MVP" and coming off an incredible year and with better health and a better NBA body. NOW the results would definitely be different.

Problem I have with these redrafts are we don't know how these players would've turned out had they not been drafted the way they were. That's why we see so many busts. Harden and Curry weren't spectacular out the gate. So them being drafted at number 1 & 2 with all the pressure that comes with it. Who's to say they end up the same. Or have the same teams around them. Some things take time and that worked out great for them.
