The conventional wisdom among today's media is to rush to judgment on NBA Drafts. For most, three years is the measurement of choice. We believe that is too soon. Hoop Obsession has made it a habit to judge NBA Drafts after FIVE seasons, and even then, there are players that are still clearly ascending, making it a difficult task to rank the various choices.

The best player in the 2015 draft is not hard to decipher. The Minnesota Timberwolves won the NBA Draft Lottery and they correctly chose Karl-Anthony Towns. "KAT" is the only player in the class to make an All-NBA Team, and he is also the only two-time NBA All-Star from the Class of 2015.

The 2015 NBA Draft produced four All-Stars so far (Towns, Devin Booker, D'Angelo Russell, and Kristaps Porzingis). A whopping 16 of the 60 players drafted have never played a minute in the NBA. There are 27 undrafted players that have played in at least one-game in the Association.

Karl Anthony Towns was the first player chosen in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Some players from the 2015 Draft are still improving and increasing their value in the NBA. Meanwhile, others who were once productive, have leveled off or fallen off.

So without further ado... Here is our highly subjective Hoop Obsession reboot of the 2015 NBA Draft.

1. Karl-Anthony Towns ...No player from the 2015 NBA Draft has been more productive. Towns has career averages of 22.8 points, and 11.2 rebounds per game. He does it all. His career three-point field goal percentage is 39%. His free throw percentage is like that of a good guard, at 83%. Through 35 games in 2019-20, Towns bumped his scoring average up to 26.5 points per game. The one thing that escaped Towns in his five years in the NBA? Winning. The T-Wolves have only had a winning record once in the five seasons that Towns has been around. They won 29, and then 31 games in his first two seasons before breaking out with a 47 win campaign in 2017-18. However, the team regressed to 36 wins the following season, and they didn't make the cut to participate in the NBA Return in Orlando this season. We don't think Towns is to blame.

2. Devin Booker ...Booker is making teams pay for missing on him. Somehow, Booker was not taken until the 13th selection in 2015. He is clearly still improving, becoming a first-time NBA All-Star in 2020. This season, Booker averaged 26.1 points per game and raised his effective field goal percentage to an all-time personal high of 54.3%. Booker is learning how to be more selective in his shot attempts. This season, Booker is making an insane 91.3% of his free throws. Like Towns, Booker has rarely felt the thrill of victory in the NBA. In Booker's five seasons, the Phoenix Suns have not posted a winning record. We feel that he is now ready to be the type of teammate that can help win games. ...D'Angelo Russell was the second pick in 2015 NBA Draft.

3. Kristaps Porzingis ...The fourth pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, Porzingis was a NBA All-Star in 2017-18. He suffered a torn left ACL in February 2018 and was subsequently traded to and later signed by the Dallas Mavericks in 2019. This season, Porzingis has reminded all in the league how good he can be. He is averaging 19.2 points, 9.5 rebounds, and 2.1 blocked shots per game (5th best in the NBA) for a solid Dallas squad. Porzingis was named NBA Player of the Week on March 2nd, 2020. ...Jahlil Okafor was the third pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

4. D'Angelo Russell ...Russell is on his fourth team in five seasons. He was a 2018-19 NBA All-Star while playing in Brooklyn. That was his second team. He was drafted second overall in 2015 by the Los Angeles Lakers. He played the majority of this season as member of the Golden State Warriors before being traded to Minnesota on February 6th. He is averaging 23.1 points, and 6.3 assists per game.

The next set of picks could go many different ways. We could make a case for the guy we list 10th to be as high as fifth.

5. Myles Turner ... After Turner's sophomore season in the NBA, his trajectory looked to be headed for loftier peaks than his actual position on the mountain in 2020. Turner has established himself as one of the premier shot blockers in the NBA but his scoring average has failed to match the success of 14.5 points per game in 2016-17. This season, Turner owns averages of 11.8 points, and 6.5 rebounds per game. Turner led the NBA in blocked shots per game (2.7) last season. Turner connects on 35% of his three-point shots (career). Certainly, the Indiana Pacers did well to select Turner eleventh. ...Mario Hezjona was the fifth pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Myles Turner blocks shots at a high rate.

6. Montrezl Harrell ...Harrell is unquestionably among the biggest steals of the 2015 Draft. He has improved his scoring average with each successive NBA season. After two seasons in Houston, Harrell was one of seven players and a draft pick traded to the L.A. Clippers in a massive deal that secured Chris Paul for Houston. Now, an established scorer and bruiser off the bench, Harrell is averaging 18.6 points, and 7.1 rebounds for a team that some prognosticate will represent the Western Conference in the 2020 NBA Finals. ...In 2015, the sixth selection was Willie Cauley-Stein.

7. Kelly Oubre Jr. ... At age 24, Oubre is a player that is on the rise. The slashing 6'7" wing has improved as a three point shooter which has opened up his driving game. This season in Phoenix, Oubre is scoring a career-best 18.7 points, and grabbing 6.4 rebounds per game. His three-point percentage is at a career-high 35.2%. Oubre's decision making remains an area he can really improve in. He has 85 assists versus 83 turnovers in 2019-20. Oubre suffered a torn meniscus in February and underwent surgery in March. ...The seventh pick in 2015 was Emmanuel Mudiay.

8. Richaun Holmes ...Some players just need a better opportunity. Holmes was always efficient on a per-minute basis while playing limited minutes in Philadelphia and Phoenix. In 2019-20, Holmes landed in Sacramento and made everyone realize that he was by far the superior player to season-opening starter, DeWayne Dedmon. Holmes is scoring a career-best, 12.8 points (on 65% FG, and 80% FT) while snatching 8.3 rebounds per game. In hindsight, Holmes should have been a lottery pick. He lasted until pick 37. ...Stanley Johnson was the eighth pick in 2015.

9. Norman Powell ...Powell received a big up-tick in minutes this season, and he responded with career-best scoring numbers. Powell, who had never averaged more than 8.6 points per game, is contributing 16.4 points per contest in 2019-2020. The 46th player taken in 2015, Powell was NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week for the week of March 9, 2020. ...Frank Kaminsky was drafted ninth in 2015.

10. Christian Wood ...The word on Draft day 2015 was that Wood wasn't ready for the NBA. That may have been true at the time but Wood has left no doubt that he is ready NOW! Wood was not drafted. After shining in the G-League, and having stints in Philadelphia, Charlotte, Milwaukee, and New Orleans, Wood is now a core piece of the Detroit Pistons. He averaged 13.1 points per game in just 21.4 minutes per contest in 2019-2020. ...The tenth pick in 2015 was Justise Winslow.

11. Larry Nance Jr. ... Nance continues to refine his game. This season he averaged a career-best 10.1 points and 7.2 rebounds per game. A terrific decision maker, Nance owns a better than two-to-one assist-to-turnover ratio for the last three seasons. Nance is quietly beginning to make a solid percentage of his three-point attempts as well. He shot a career-best 35.2% from deep in 2019-2020. He has been labeled as a Power Forward for the majority of his career but his skill set now suggests he can be an option at the THREE, which makes sense since he stands 6'7".

12. Delon Wright ...Wright is among the NBA's best guard defenders. His 'jack of-all trades' game has netted him six career triple-doubles. Wright is on his third team since starting out in Toronto as the 20th pick in the 2015 Draft. He had a stop in Memphis before being traded to Dallas. ...The 12th pick in 2015 was Trey Lyles.

13. Terry Rozier ...Rozier averaged a career-high 18 points per game in 2019-2020 for a bad Charlotte Hornets team. His shot selection is still a work in progress but Rozier has made significant progress on his perimeter shooting. Rozier shot over 40% from three-point range for the first time in his career in 2019-2020. He also made a career-best 87.4% of his free throws.

14. T.J. McConnell ...McConnell went undrafted in 2015 but by our Total Production metric, he is the ninth most productive player in the Class of 2015. A bench spark with exceptional decision-making ability, McConnell even has one NBA triple-double to his credit.

Selections beyond the lottery in our reboot would be: 15. Trey Lyles, 16. Bobby Portis (was 22nd pick in 2015). 17. Emmanuel Mudiay, 18. Willie Cauley-Stein, 19. Frank Kaminsky, 20. Josh Richardson (was picked 40th in 2015). 21. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (was taken 23rd in 2015). 22. Tyus Jones (was drafted 24th in 2015). 23. Jahlil Okafor, 24. Justise Winslow, 25. Willy Hernangomez (was picked 35th in 2015). 26. Mario Hezonja, 27. Pat Connaughton (was picked 41st in 2015). 28. Royce O'Neale (went undrafted in 2015). 29. Javonte Green (was not drafted). 30. Cedi Osman (was taken 31st in 2015).

Holmes went 37th in 2015. He should have been a lottery pick.

To find a rough estimate of each 2015 NBA Draft class player's, total, regular season production to date, we multiplied each player's, career per-minute efficiency, by the total number of minutes they have played.

Here are the top 14 in Total Production, and where they were selected. (There are 14 picks in the NBA lottery).

Player EFR x Mins.
Towns - 1st 10232
Devin Booker - 13th 6029
Myles Turner -11th 5458
D'Angelo Russsell - 2nd 4872
Willie Cauley-Stein - 6th 4829

In case you are wondering, we would call the Rashad Vaughn pick at number 17, the worst pick in the 2015 Draft.
