We are going to have a hard time topping the 2014 NBA draft. Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Dante Exum and Joel Embiid gave us four credible choices at No. 1. Another five players looked like they could become potential All-Stars. Those kinds of drafts come along once in a decade. The 2015 draft doesn't appear to have a franchise-type player right now. There is no one guy to hang all of your hopes on. No one worthy of tanking the season over ... yet.

But that doesn't mean it will be the 2013 NBA draft either. There is talent here. Lots of it. And for the first time in a while, much of the talent stands 6-foot-10 or taller. Big man Jahlil Okafor, a Duke recruit, will be atop our new 2015 Top 100.
