As the NCAA men’s basketball comes to an end, talented student-athletes and international professionals hope for a new beginning in the NBA. This draft is going to be remember among the 1996 and 2003 class. 2017 is top heavy with guards and wings that fit up the stat sheet in every category!

This is the year bottom seeded teams look to find their franchise player to eventually take them to the playoffs. Ironically, the team most likely to win the 1st overall pick, Boston Celtics, is looking to be 1st place in the Eastern Conference. The answer to maintain their dominance is Lonzo Ball. A rangy, quick point guard who is averaging 15 points, 6 rebounds and nearly 8 assists while shooting 43% from 3 point territory.

  1. I think it’s ridiculous that Harry Giles could go anywhere in the first round with how mediocre he’s been. I would like to see Dwayne Bacon and Justin Jackson move up some, they’ve both got a ton of potential to be great NBA scorers.
