I think Brian is talking about the draft in terms of tiers as outlined in this Raptors Republic article (LINK). There's no tier 1 or tier 2 guys, there's only two tier 3 guys, and then there's a handful of tier 4 players, etc...

I thought the "we are saving money on salary since picks 3 to 8 are all roughly the same talent level" argument a bit laughable, but whatever. He is a salesman, and the MLSE sale is probably influencing him to spin things in a way that appeals to accountants.

I'm watching season 4 of Mad Men, so BC reminds me of Don Draper.
