One thing I've found interesting from past drafts are players who generate buzz in the week or two prior to the draft.  After lots of analysis and film and especially workouts, there starts to be a consensus, or at least a strong minority opinion, that these late risers are NBA ready.  Last year it was Shai and John Collins.  And both look good.

I'd have to look up the previous year's draft to recall who was a late riser then.

Going back quite a ways, I remember that Amare had a good deal of late buzz, with one scout going so far as to say that he might be the best player in the whole class.

Again, the draft is not my specialty.  And picking Top 5, the Late Riser phenomena is probably less important (unless we Trade Down!).    But it seems most years the late buzz and late risers turn out pretty good.

This article preps us for the 52% chance that we don't get the #1 #2 #3 or #4 pick.

So if we draft at #5 keep an eye on guys not named Williamson Morant and Barrett. 

Tier ONE

1. Zion
2. Morant
3. Barrett


Drafting #5 is really like having the #2 pick in the 2nd tier.


So is there a difference between Reddish, Culver, Langford, Washington, etc...?

Let's find out.

In the old format it would still be 75% against.

I think the real pain in the new format for the worst team is that they've a better shot at 5th when previously could do no worse than 4th.

Who watched Knicks-Jazz? Who watched Celtics-Philly?



* I chose the latter, and it was awesome!

** And I dare any of you beeyatches to tell me Kevin Knox had a good game. Nobody had a good game when the opponent has 111 points by the end of the 3rd, lol...
*** And if you made the mistake of choosing the Knicks, here is my gift to you:

I didn't realize there was a Knicks game.  I was watching Philly Celts.  But nothing matters until the playoffs start.  This part of the NBA season is tough.  There are almost no compelling playoff races.  Its mostly about seeding 3-8 in the west and 6-8 in the east.

James Harden needs to finish his case for MVP.  It is his to lose. 
Trae Young can try to make his case for CO-ROY
What else is there to follow...  Miami and Dwade getting in over Orlando?

Just praying for no injuries to key players.
