That's good info.

 

Fultz wasn't injured. In a player-dominated game, shouldn't #1 pick talent be able to have done more?

That Simmons LSU team was a mess with Johnny Jones unable to coach the talent he recruited. In the same class with Ben was Antonio Blankney (#3 SG overall) and Brandon Sampson (#39 overall and Louisiana's Mr. Basketball). Those two, plus an existing roster of duded who thought it was better for them to "show" they were as good or better than Simmons. Lucky for Jones, Jordan Mickey and Jarrell Martin decided to enter the draft or ir would've been even worse as those two were 1st team All-SEC the year prior.

Actually Fultz did miss some games due to a knee injury last season.

 

I think Washington, like LSU the year before, was simply a train wreck.

Lonzo is a good player. It's a shame LaVar has overshadowed him, because he was The Pick for a large portion of the season. Fultz too, but I don't know how I feel about college players who can't make the tournament, especially at the #1 spot. (For reference, that list includes Nerlens Noel, Paul George (Fresno State) and Damian Lillard (Weber State).

You often need a superstar to be able to compete in basketball, but at its core it's still a team game, and one player doesn't necessarily make or break a team (think Anthony Davis). As a C's fan, I would love to draft Fultz because there wouldn't be as much pressure on him as there would be if he went to LA or Philly. In fact, he might even find himself coming off the bench because IT4 and Bradley will probably retain their roles. It may be better for him that way, look at how Jaylon Brown has performed given limited minutes.

Edens is the daughter of the Bucks owner was at the Draft Lottery that one year which essentially changed the rules for who represents teams.

I read that Reddit thread last night. A lot of perving and Mallory and, I believe, her younger sister.

 

The Ringer has been all Celtics all the time. It's getting bad.

I see Ms. Edens's most recent tweet is about what the NBA would be like without a salary cap. I like her already.

League sent a memo to teams saying no kids, season ticket holders or non-team personnel are to be representatives.
