Look, I don’t expect you to say, “OK, he wasn’t a good pick”, but I’m not talking gobbledegook here.
You are, however, ignoring whatever defense I make of the pick. So it really doesn't matter what I say, or what sources I cite.

We could have just stopped at "opinions vary".

Players with a demonstrated ability to generate their own offense more often would be better picks than those without.
Of course, if the player isn't being asked to generate his own offense -- if he is being put specifically into a position of having the playmaking done for him and only needing to follow through on his specialty skill set -- then his playmaking really doesn't matter much, does it?

But wait... that's bringing context into the equation.

But I don't expect you to relent. You're going to keep bagging on Young and King for the rest of the draft. I get it.
