This ESPN article is astoundingly dumb. https://www.espn.com/espn/story/_/i...etball-programs-produce-best-players-position. It attempts to rate each school by the players they produced at different "positions," with those "positions" being: Point guard (good start). Sharpshooter (I guess shooting guard?). Wing (usually includes 2s, 3s, and 4s that can space but here it includes 2-5, see below). Interior scorer (wut?). Post defender (mmmkay). I'm all for abolishing standard positions, but this particular method is... odd. Some other highlights: Grayson Allen is not a sharpshooter but a wing, along with Nick Collison and 6'11" center Justin Patton from Creighton. You know, similar player archetypes. Jabari Parker is not a wing but an interior scorer, along with guys like Embiid and Cousins. Cousins and Towns are interior scorers (accurate) and post defenders (... no), but AD is only listed as a post defender and not an interior scorer. Durant is a post defender but not anything else, and him and Chris Mihm rank ahead of UConn's combination of Emeka Okafor and Hasheem Thabeet for interior defense. Elton Brand is noted as a post defender (no) but not an interior scorer. Embiid is not a post defender, but he is an interior scorer. Meanwhile, Jeff Whithey is not even listed but Drew Gooden and Cole Aldrich are notable KU post defenders. ESPN "devised a formula," but there is zero insight into what the formula is or who was considered aside from the seemingly random grab-bag of names and "positions."
