A potential top 5 pick leak? Suns saying they want Ja Morant over Zion Williamson? Knicks saying they’d trade the #1 pick for Anthony Davis?
Best part is, this is all happening right when I finally can get back to writing.
As many hardcore fanatics know, this is the beginning of the beginning of what will be the craziest draft in NBA history. Is it because this lottery can decide the fate of every team in the NBA? Well yeah, that’s the saying every year. Could it be because a genetic freak is considered locked-in first overall pick? Perhaps, but I think the depth of talent in this draft is what is more important.
In reality, it might be because this is the first time a class has actually affected offseason plans for certain teams. Many reports are saying Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving could go to the Knicks if Zion were to go there. Would the same hold true if Zion went to the Mavs? Nope, Knicks would be SOL faster than the 76ers conference finals’ aspirations. What if the Hawks score the #1 pick in the “Zion Lottery” (as this draft has been dubbed)? Could we see KD set his sites on HAWK-lanta and a possible Al Horford/Paul Millsap return?
As the Lord and Savior appointed by ESPN, Zion Williamson (shown above) has just as little of a clue as the casual fan does about what may occur in the offseason, let alone tonight. We could see so many fanbases crash and burn in seconds with the reveal of these picks. However, the clock for the draft starts shortly after the presentation ends, and there is only one thing for certain after that…
…the Cavs will surely **** their pick up.
