Hey, I'm new here and I'm still trying to get a grasp of everything. So I looked at a few coaches resumes and looked at the players that they have had drafted from their teams, and I noticed a first pick overall had worse stats than a fifteenth pick overall. For example, one first round pick averaged like 9 ppg, 3 assists, 1 reb, 1 stl, and like 2 turnovers, then I'd look at an eighth pick overall and he will have like 12 ppg, 2 assists, 4 reb, 1 stl, and 1 turnover. I don't quite understand how the first guy was better, by stats the second guy is, yet he was picked lower, and this isn't just a one time thing, I've seen it with nearly every draft I've looked at. Also, is it the same for pre season all americans and stuff, because there are some guys there who are worse than players on my team. I just don't understand.
