What is the general opinion of Winslow?

I honestly look at him and see the exact same game as Stanley Johnson. Just everything I've seen screams exactly the same, even their movements on the court. Only difference I see is JW seems to be a better finisher at the ring, and SJ is a better shooter.

Both 6'5, same wingspans and reaches essentially. Both similar on the defensive end, and both seem to play similarly on offense.

What has made Winslow the consensus better out of the two?

I don't watch college ball, but I don't see much of a difference in them either. Maybe Winslow has the potential to be a #1 scorer on a team, unlike Johnson. I see Johnson as more of a Jimmy Butler type.

Stanley Johnson is going to be the steal of this draft.

No way he should fall past 6

Any particular reason?

Most greats are always decent athletes, and him and Winslow really don't strike me that way. They seem slow laterally and both have an average first step IMO. People seem really enamoured with both Johnson's and Winslow's talent though, but maybe I'm missing something?

I feel they're both a little bulky given their position and their pace suffers because of it.

why would you use their height w/o shoes?

but i agree with most of what you said. Stanley has been massively underrated since Arizona exited from the tourney

Stanley is just as athletic as Kwahi if not more. Athleticism isnt just vertical leap

and he wants to dominate in the post like Kwahi. love it

i watched far more of winslow than johnson, but winslow is great at pushing the ball in transition, and creating his own offense there.

if he can tighten up his handle, he should be able to take guys off the dribble in the halfcourt, and create his own offense there too.

I'm not buy Potizigas or whatever his name is going in the top 4. Mudiay is getting extremely underrated here.

The Timberwolves have reportedly informed Karl-Anthony Towns that they'll be selecting him with the #1 pick.
