    3 predictions for tonight’s draft;
    1. Andrew Nembhard gets drafted in the top half of round 2.
    2. Kofi Cockburn doesn’t get drafted.
    3. The Knicks screw up their first round pick.

    Glover actually entered the draft but withdrew prior to the deadline. The confidence that he had in high school and lost under White is back.

    Bachero comparisons on espn were Michael Beasley and Ben simmons. How does that make anyone feel better?

    Beasley would have been good if he didn’t have all his off court issues, but Banchero is a lot bigger than him, and has huge thighs and legs which is critical for low post positioning. ESPN draft comparisons are always garbage, lol. He’s going to be a great scorer for Orlando, just not sure about his defense.

    As a lifelong Knicks fan going back to the days of Willis Reed and Walt Frazier, totally perplexed about the moves they made last night. They are going all out for Jalen Brunson, but if that fails then what?

    Top prospects not selected in 2022 NBA Draft: Scotty Pippen Jr., Kofi Cockburn among notable snubs

    Top draft prospects not chosen in the draft. However, many of them did get picked up to one-year contracts by other teams:

    Scotty Pippen jr - LA Lakers
    Lakers Sign Shaq & Scottie Pippen's Sons, Shareef & Scotty Jr., After NBA Draft


    Johnny Zuang (UCLA) - Utah Jazz
    Kofi Kockburn (Illinois) - Utah Jazz
    REPORT: Kofi Cockburn signs with Jazz as UDFA - The Champaign Room
    Utah Jazz sign 3 players to free-agent deals after NBA draft

    Beasley was constantly doing drugs throughout career. NBA teams need to assess how kids will handle the money and fame. Will they improve body, eat right, get rest, study playbook, cheer their teammates from bench and always be in gym, or be a distraction, not accept coaching, do drugs, be out late at South Beach, stay up late playing video games, …

    I hope you are right. Could use some thickness along with Wendell Carter.

    I didn't watch much ACC b-ball this year, but I'm always a sucker for Tarheels v Dukies. IIRC, the Heels won away for Coach K's last regular season home game and again in the tourney.

    Is the Tarheels roster really great? I heard Duke had 4 players drafted in the first round. Don't think I heard that UNC had any.

    So with that great of a team around him I'm somewhat second guessing the Magic's #1 draft pick.
