The two most coveted bigs in this upcoming draft are distinctly different talents, but teams can’t go wrong with either.

Deeper Dive (Video): Sizing up Jahlil Okafor and Karl Towns

New York Knicks fans, along with the NBA as a whole, will be holding their collective breaths on May 19th when the results of the NBA draft lottery. I've decided to take a video look with help from my friends at Draftexpress.com to compare the talents of the two best big man prospects: Duke's Jahlil Okafor and Kentucky's Karl Anthony-Towns. Both players project to be franchise changing players in the post and could make for a difficult decision for the team picking first overall. Okafor has more post polish and scouts think he may be one of the most dominant post players to come down the line in decades, while Towns is a more solid defensive presence who can anchor a team's defense for the next 15 years. 

Both players have very impressive footwork, with Okafor having the edge and both are exceptional passers out of double teams. The comparison between the two is fascinating.
