Anthony Davis, players like Kyrie Irving come along almost every draft.

You always pick the big man. Even knowing that Kyrie would be as good as he is today, I still pick Davis. His body is long and he moves very smoothly. Very unique for such a long body. People say his body will grow, but he wont become huge. That is good. Look at KG, Duncan and Howard, you get my point.

I love Kyrie though.

Big men are a unique commodity in today's NBA. As great as Kyrie is and could be, you won't find many big guys with the overall package that AD has too easy.

This, in hindsight Kyrie looks great but go big when given the opportunity

Davis. I was really wrong about Kyrie, thought he was kind of a weaker number 1 overall. Now tho? Irving without question. I know you're suppose to go with the big over the small but Irving is a superstar. Davis has been unimpressive to me kinda and even tho I'm sure he'll turn it around don't think you can go wrong with Irving if you chose to take him.

Davis, especially since he actually totally dominated college while Kyrie was injured. And I'm assuming Kyrie would have the same college career in this scenario.
