UCLA guard Lonzo Ball was just handed a cell phone from his agent Harrison Gaines as the @Lakers are about to pick 2nd.

Fultz was the only All-NBA player in this draft.

Barring injury, Philly has arrived.

This is a Magic Johnson pick.

Ball will make an All-Star team, here and there.

As far as Lavar Ball, it's a beautiful thing for a parent to witness his child prosper in life after having envisioned the moment before putting in the work.

Bledsoe, Booker, Jackson

If the Suns keep Bledsoe, they could possibly replicate a devastating perimeter 3-man tandem that is just as deadly as the Wizards (not really serious on being like the Wiz, Bledsoe ain't John Wall).

Kings finally made a great draft pick.

It's been awhile.

I love Fox's game.

They finally have a functional PG, and they finally have functional young players that will fit alongside their PG.

Yep, it works out. Expect Fox LOBBING to Cauley-Stein to be a regular thing next season

Isaac will be a bust, especially in Orlando.

Oh well. I'd hoped for Monk, but at least we're drafting a backcourt player, still.

Ntilinkina will be a bust, especially in New York.
