Ohio State point guard D’Angelo Russell isn’t short of confidence, and he displayed it again this week after insisting he was the best prospect available.

Russell averaged 19.3 points per game last season and shot 41 percent from beyond the arc, making him an appealing proposition to several teams around the NBA.
However, it is still widely acknowledged that he remains behind the likes of Karl-Anthony Towns and Jahlil Okafor in the pecking order, both in terms of talent and what the potential top teams picking will need in the Draft.
Russell remains a great prospect with his vision, passing and length all being significant characteristics that will help make him a ready-made NBA talent, and based on his confidence displayed below, he certainly appears ready to make his mark in the league.
Nevertheless, there are still NBA Draft experts who are not yet sold on him, as they believe that he has struggled against the other top teams at college level in particular.
As a result, even though Russell is adamant that he is the best player in the Draft, which is arguably a good thing that he has confidence in himself, his thoughts may not necessarily be shared by others.
