Projected to be a top-five pick, D'Angelo Russell is also considered to be the best shooting guard in the 2015 NBA Draft. But Russell doesn't think that he is just the best two-guard in the draft, he believes that he is the best player overall.

When asked at this week's NBA Draft Combine why an NBA team should draft him, Russell confidently answered, "I'm the best in the draft."

His smile afterwards is simply great.

The Philadephia 76ers are reportedly interested in drafting Russell (they also posted this video), and he could be a great fit since the Sixers actually need a shooting guard. Russell only spent one year at Ohio State but was the Big Ten Freshman of the Year. He averaged 19.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 35 games. Solid numbers and his game should translate to the NBA but is he actually the best player in the draft?

We will have to wait till the 2015-2016 NBA season to find out.
