"Two Big Splashes" has become the theme at the top with the draft's two premiere centers being taken by the team from the Land of Lakes, the T-Wolves, and the team that orginated there, the Lakers. Two wretched teams are going to be able to fill the most difficult to obtain position in the game with Karl-Anthony Towns and Jahlil Okafor. Coming off remarkable freshmen seasons, Towns and Okafor figure to provide an instant boost to the rebuilding efforts of their new teams.
In what I believe to be the deepest position in this draft, with as many as 10 players having the potential to be first round picks, the PF's also present some of the more interesting story lines to Thursday's draft. With the Latvian Porzingis reportedly getting serious consideration from every team in the top five not from The Land of 10,000 Lakes, along with the uncertainty surrounding where guys like Portis, Lyles and Harrell will be drafted, this group of guys could very well change the landscape of the entire draft if one of the proverbial "dominoes" were to fall early.
