History of #4 in the NBA Draft: The Grizzlies will be fine

#4 might not be so bad after all Grizzlies fans were understandably disappointed with the results of the 2018 Draft Lottery when they saw their beloved Grizzlies drop to 4th in the 2018 NBA Draft. A season of “tanking” seemed worthless, with the hopes of Luka Doncic or Marvin Bagley III in a Grizzlies jersey diminishing. Although recent reports have given a glimmer of hope that either Doncic or Bagley slips to the Grizz, they are merely rumors. The Grizzlies do have history on their side, however, as the #4 pick in the draft has continuously produced solid NBA talent. Similar to...

Hawks add ‘potential unicorn’ in recent mock draft

It doesn’t feel likely but... As of late May, it would be a bit of a surprise if the Atlanta Hawks did not select Duke’s Marvin Bagley, Michigan State’s Jaren Jackson or Real Madrid’s Luka Doncic with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. However, a recent mock draft foresees another potential scenario and it is certainly an interesting one. Reid Forgrave of CBS Sports projects Texas big man Mo Bamba to the Hawks at No. 3 and, in doing so, places the potentially devastating shot blocker ahead of both Bagley III and Jackson Jr. Bamba would join John Collins in giving the...

Liberty Ballers NBA Draft Community Big Board: #2

Luka Dončić claimed the #1 spot. On to #2. We rolled out our Liberty Ballers NBA Draft community big board yesterday and began voting for the #1 spot. Receiving 63% of the vote, Luka Dončić comes in as the #1 overall player. Dončić, 6’7” and 220 lbs, is an incredibly dynamic offensive player with creation skills (for himself and his teammates) that project him to be a lead ball handler in the NBA. There is some concern over his ability to play defense (especially if he’s asked to defend point guards), as he’s not the most athletic guy. Dončić has been widely praised for...

NBA Draft Player Profile: Collin Sexton

Collin Sexton brings intensity, tenacity, and downright aggressiveness. Collin Sexton made himself known at Alabama for his fearless mentality in the paint. He was able to drive to the rim with ease against SEC opponents night in and night out. Currently, Sexton is projected to be drafted in the mid-late lottery. He measures in at 6’2” with a 6’6.5” wingspan. Sexton may be undersized but he does not play like a small guard at all. One of Sexton’s great traits is his ability to draw fouls. He averaged eight FT attempts per game. pic.twitter.com/FafP1pCd0p— Dylan Jackson...
