NBA DRAFT LOTTERY KNEE JERK REACTION

So the ping pongs balls did their thing, and we now know where Zion Williamson will be calling home in the near future. I have no doubt the city of New Orleans is partying like its Mardi Gras part deux right now. The franchise can now reasonably show Anthony Davis a reason not to leave. If they can retain Davis, Julius Randle, AND add Zion Williamson, that forms a very, very dynamic front court.

That being said, we’ve got some posts being worked on, division by division review of the NFL, NBA final 4 thoughts, the meltdown of the Celtics, and more but with the lottery results dropping tonight, an immediate, knee jerk reaction NBA 1st round mock draft was absolutely needed. So without further delay, offered without additional commentary, your 2019 NBA draft, a projection that is sure to turn to crap between now and June 20th:
