1. Dillon Brooks (78)

Apparently, establishing oneself as one of the best defenders in the league, let alone at your position is only good enough to get you on par with Talen Horton-Tucker and Brandon Miller, who in an unproven rookie. The All-Defensive forward was barely rated higher than Josh Okogie and Hamidou Diallo, which is flat-out disrespectful.

There is no reasonable basketball mind that would put Brooks in the same tier as Okogie and Diallo. At least they shouldn't.

Especially if we're talking impact. Sure, Brooks' shooting splits weren't jaw-dropping but it's well-known that Brooks is a legitimate NBA starter. Okogie and Diallo are rotational reserves, as is Jonathan Kuminga, who is also in the same tier ratings-wise as Brooks (77).

And the last time we saw Miller in the Summer League, he looked like potentially another horrid draft pick by Charlotte Hornets majority owner Michael Jordan, although it's too early to know what he will amount to in the league. But that's kind of the point.

It's known what Brooks brings to the table and it's known that he would be a starter on a playoff team.

It looks like Brooks will have to let his play do the talking in order to change people's opinion of him.
