2015 — Karl-Anthony Towns (#1 pick)
No question about this one. Karl-Anthony Towns is a stud, and he literally has twice the win shares of anyone else in the 2015 draft. Towns is averaging 22 points and 12 rebounds for his career and still improving, especially now that Jimmy Butler is gone and he is seeing more of the ball, and he’s still just 23 years old.
Towns is the complete package as a modern offensive big man, able to score from the post or facing up, and more than happy to knock down his career 40% three. Towns has been even more beastly post All Star break, averaging 30 points and 15 rebounds a game with a 124 offensive rating. Here’s hoping he can get some help in Minnesota soon.
