Default 2015 Potential Top 5 GOAT draft?

We have 84:
Michael Jordan, Hakeem Olajuwon, Charles Barkley and John Stockton.

87:
David Robinson, Scottie Pippen, Kevin Johnson, Horace Grant, Reggie Miller, and Mark Jackson.

96:
Allen Iverson, Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Stephon Marbury, Ray Allen, Antoine Walker, Kobe Bryant, Peja Stojakovic, Steve Nash, Jermaine O'Neal, and Ben Wallace.

2003:
LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.


(Meh) 2008: Derrick Rose, Kevin Love, Russell Westbrook, and Brook Lopez.

And now 2015 Top 5:
Karl Anthony Towns
D'Angelo Russell
Jahlil Okafor
Emmanuel Mudiay
Kristaps Porzingis

Sleepers:
Willie Cauley Stein
Frank Kaminsky
Mario Hezonja
Justise Winslow

Super Sleepers:
Cliff Alexander
Tyus Jones
Kelly Oubre
Harrison Twins (Come on out of every set of twins theres always a good one lol)


I think this is going to be a stacked draft from top to bottom. Just too many really hyped named, Guys that would of went in the lottery in previous years not even in the top 10.

All 5 of the top 5 with #1 Overall pick potential.

Nearly every draft looks like it has a great 4-5 players in it and then 2 years later we find out that isn't the case.

Two years ago, that draft was garbage and everyone knew it.

Obviously you never know, but on paper this draft is very strong. Towns and Russell are tier 1, future superstars, period. Okafor is a beast as a tier 2 leader and Mudiay would probably be rated similar to Wall if he played at Kentucky last year instead of in China(when it arguably should be the reverse).

Porzingis is kind of the wild card, he can make or break this thing

My prediction is that it will possibly be on par with the 2010 class, which is still a great class in my opinion.
