Tonight is the 2017 NBA Draft, and I’m pretty excited. The Draft brings back a lot of memories from when I was much younger. Back in the day when guys like Shaq and Chris Webber were getting drafted 1st overall.
Tonight, it looks like the Sixers are going to take the kid from UW, Markelle Fultz, with the first pick. As a UW grad, I think that is really cool. With the second pick, the LA Lakers are projected to select Lonzo Ball. And then the Celtics are on the clock. This pick is going to be really interesting. I think Boston Celtics’ GM Danny Ainge can probably trade this pick, move back in the draft, and still get the guy he wants.
Other than the first two players projected to get drafted, I don’t know anything about these players. In fact, I don’t know much about Fultz or Ball either.
I also want to make a plug for one of my best friends’ new book. Richard Lu recently published his book titled “The NBA Draft Almanac.” It’s the most comprehensive NBA Draft resource ever been published. If you are a basketball fan and a Draft fan, this is the perfect resource. I highly recommend it.
Happy Draft Day!
