No idea where Hood was, but Royce was 33rd.
Royce vs Tag is an interesting debate to me. Royce had 5 really sold years for the Jazz vs 10 really mediocre years of Tag. I get longevity plays a big factor, but to me Royce is clearly just better and he had enough years in Utah to be ahead of Tag.
The disparity in their production is hardly negligible. You think this because of their respective bars coming out of college. Ostertag didn’t live up to his potential. O’Neale did. But to make O’Neale sound so solid and Tag out as if he was a complete stiff is laughable, especially since you previously acknowledged you’re too young to even have an opinion on Tag.
