    Following on from the 2017 NBA Draft Class Thread, I will be updating this thread with some highlights and full coverage videos of some of the best prospects for the upcoming NBA draft (which is a while away!). Ah well here we go;

    My Big 3
    Marvin Bagley III - PF - Duke
    In a draft class stacked with big guy I reckon this dude is the best of the lot. I believe he skipped his senior year of high school to play college, I mean.. could he skip college as well? This man is gonna dominate. Very athletic for his size, well coordinated with good post moves. He's very good in the paint, when he puts on more weight he will be scary.


    Luka Doncic - SF - Real Madrid

    The one we have all been waiting for. He's been know for quite some time now playing professionally in Europe at a very young age. This guy's body is just ready to play. He has a bit of everything in his game, I know I listed him at SF, but really you will probably see him handle the ball a lot like Giannis and Simmons.


    Michael Porter - SF - Mizzou (rip)
    Unfortunately the other day he just copped an injury that will sit him out for the rest of the season, I dont know what that means for next years draft let alone his draft stock. Another guy with a jack of all trades, he's got the size, the athleticism, the skill and the shooting. I hope he recovers well, a great talent.


    My Sixers Pick
    Kevin Knox - SF - Kentucky
    Given that we have the Lakers pick and where it's projected to be, I hope the Sixers get a pick around the 8-10 mark. Hopefully Kevin Knox will be available then. He's a good scorer, but Im not quite sure if his shooting is quite there yet. I think Philly needs another wing who can shoot in the SG/SF position so I'll keep an eye out, but atm it's this guy who I like.


    Watch Out For
    Colin Sexton - PG - Alabama
    Probably the best point guard in the class at the moment, he just came off an unbelievable game scoring 29 points with a lot of them being in the clutch. Great ball handling ability which is essential and the man can get to the paint. A great score and has started off the season well

    Hes v good against slow white folk, just not sure his game translates to the NBA. Hes my last pick out of Ayton, Bamba, OPJ and Bagley.

    How Ayton has not been brought up is crazy to me. Lakers aren't bad enough for me to have pipe dreams of him on the C's anymore unfortunately. Him on the C's with Hayward back next year would have put them over the top.

    If Trae Young goes one and done, he's a surefire top 5 pick.

    Was baffled by this post and then remembered you were the OKC fan. Must be an OU homer.

    Just looked at the Lakers December schedule and the Celtics might just get this pick after all.

    That would be terrible for us. 2019 draft is stacked, even more so if they get rid of one and done this summer like some execs have talked about

    Trae Young said he probably wouldn't attempt a 3 in the first half agains Kansas... He didn't. He went 7-9 for the game and still dropped 26. I'm sold on him.
