YOU’RE DUCKING RIGHT WE’RE MOCKING THIS DRAFT

WELCOME TO DRAFT DAY! Today is a fantastic day, I’m on a little stay-cation, its my wife’s birthday, I’ve got my iced Dunkins coffee, hitting up our favorite steak joint for dinner, and oh yeah, the NBA draft is tonight. My absolute favorite event. I love team building. My favorite part of my job as a college coach was recruiting and trying to figure out, project what our roster would look like. If I could have any job in the world, it’d be as an NBA General Manager I was trying to finalize this as close as I could to…

WITH THE 27TH PICK IN THE 2018 NBA DRAFT….

Spoiler alert, DeAndre Ayton will not be available at 27 when the Celtics are on the clock. By all reports we can safely eliminate 17 players from the Celtics big board; DeAndre Ayton, Marvin Bagley III, Jaren Jackson Jr., Mo Bamba, Wendell Carter, Robert Williams, Luka Doncic, Michael Porter Jr., Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Mikel Bridges, Kevin Knox, Miles Bridges, Lonnie Walker, Zhaire Smith, Jerome Robinson, Trae Young, and Collin Sexton. To that end, the in reviewing the remaining prospects we come to the same conclusions that many others have, that there isn’t a whole lot of difference in the player level…

LETS MAKE A DEAL

Welcome to the NBA’s version of a GSN marathon of Lets Make a Deal. The NBA Draft is now just hours away, and NBA GMs across the country are putting their cell phone provider’s unlimited minutes policy to the test. Just this morning the Charlotte Hornets and Brooklyn Nets made a deal that has me baffled, and rumors are swirling that this draft night and subsequent off season will be a whirlwind of moves and head scratchers. While with the Lakers Mitch Kuphcak inked Mozgov to this led weight anchor of a contract, and apparently now wants to hitch his…

TIME FOR THE SPURS TO SAY KAWBYE TO LEONARD

The viral news “breaking” today is that Kawhi Leonard is requesting a trade out of San Antonio, essentially citing irreconcilable differences. I give credit where credit is due by putting breaking in parentheses because Dan Lifshatz of Boston’s 98.5 The Sports Hub has been steadfastly reporting this imminent break up for months. The rumor de jour is that he will use all his power to navigate his way to a new three headed monster in Los Angles. It seems a forgone conclusion at this point that Lebron James, and Paul George will be rocking the purple and gold next year,…

Welcome to Hollywood?

The number one story line of the summer, by far, will be where Lebron James decides to lace up his Nikes come winter. Bookmakers are taking bets on where his highness will land, reporters are hypothesizing on what teams he may speak with, and fans across the country are dreaming of him in their team’s jersey like little kids dreaming of Santa Clause on Christmas eve. The news making the rounds yesterday was that James’ son Bronny James had signed on to transfer to Sierra Canyon High School in Chatsworth, California, a suburb of Los Angeles that produced Marvin Bagley,…

CAVS WIN NOW MODE OPTIONS

The Cleveland Cavaliers at are a crossroads. The decision on what road to take is seemingly muddled by the inability, or unwillingness on the part of Lebron James to express clearly a desire to continue the relationship or put an end too it. Is GM Koby Altman looking to rebuild, or reload? They attempted a rebuild on the fly, an experiment that looked brilliant on day one when they trampled the Celtics on national television following the trade deadline. A result bolstered by what appeared to some to be an improved defense, but in reality was the Celtics missing open…

2018 NBA MOCK DRAFT VANILLA VERSION

We’re now about a week and a half out from the 2018 NBA draft. The season came to an end quicker than most anticipated with the finals only going 3 games (don’t try and convince me that debacle on Friday night was a game, that was a walk through practice for the Warriors with 5 dudes wearing Cavs jerseys hanging out with back stage passes). So let me present to you the YoureDuckingRight.com mock draft version 1.0, the vanilla thunder edition. No trades, just straight who will be taken. I expect there will be trades, I think the Cavs make…

THROWING DARTS BLINDFOLDED, AKA, PROJECTING THE PATRIOTS DRAFT

Welcome to another exciting edition of watch Sully make some educated guesses that make it look like he was never edumacated at all. In today’s futile gesture we’ll be reviewing the Patriots roster as currently constructed, while also taking a look at some viable draft targets in both the early and later rounds. The Patriots currently have 8 draft picks heading into next weekend. Two in the first round, two in the second, a third, two in the sixth, and a seventh rounder just for kicks. For the sake of the roster and the salary cap they could use a…

TOP DUCKER’S 2018 NFL ROUND ONE MOCK DRAFT

Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale. A tale of a fateful trip. That started from this desert port aboard this tiny site. The mate was a mighty sailin’ lad. The skipper brave and sure. Five passengers set sail that day, for a three hour tour, a three hour tour. The day job started getting rough, the tiny site was tossed. If not for the courage of the fearless crew, You’re Ducking Right would be lost. You’re Ducking Right would be lost. The site set ground on the shore on this uncharted desert isle. With Top Ducker, Mrs.…
