Sat, 09/30/2017 - 4:00pm

The 2018 NBA draft is shaping up to be an exceptional one. While the depth in the lottery may not be as strong, in particular picks 6-10 as the acclaimed 2017 draft, the strength of the top 5 is considerably stronger. With new NBA rules in place to combat tanking, it will be interesting to see if they actually dissuade teams from doing so once their playoff hopes dissipate. With the NBA season set to kick off in a couple weeks and the college season a few weeks later, here is a first look at the 2018 mock draft with descriptions and comparisons for each prospect.

Zion Williamson has made a name for himself, blowing up over the past year with highlights and jaw dropping dunks. He’s a rare type of player with outlier athleticism.

Rookie of the Year Race

Fri, 08/04/2017 - 5:20am

NBA Rookie of the Year award isn’t for everyone. In fact, it is only for one person in the whole world, once per year.

The most compelling storyline was whether or not Joel Embiid should win the award after suiting up for only 31 professional basketball games. Luckily, it was heavily overshadowed by one of the best NBA MVP discussions of all time.
