Celtics follow euphoria of winning lottery with dud on court

Celtics follow euphoria of winning lottery with dud on court

"I think point guard is obviously a priority, and luckily in this draft there are a lot of point guards, so they should get a good player".

"The Lakers make the playoffs as soon as my boy gets there", Ball told Lakers Nation.

NBA Deputy Commissioner Mark Tatum, left, watches as Boston Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck, right, reacts after the learning the Celtics had won the first pick in the NBA basketball draft, at the draft lottery Tuesday, May 16, 2017, in NY. They had a 25 percent chance, the best of any team, to receive the No. 1 pick. The no. 1 pick should give plenty of grease for the talks to push through and come up with a win-win solution for the teams involved.

However, it is not all that bad for the Sacremento Kings.

PELICANS: New Orleans made a big move in February when it acquired DeMarcus Cousins from Sacramento, and now the Pelicans will figure out how costly it was.

Prior to the NBA Draft Lottery, Sixers fans raised a Sam Hinkie "Trust the Process" banner to the rafter's at the XFinity Live! entertainment complex across the street from the Wells Fargo Center. Fultz can score at all three levels, has a crafty handle and is a better distributor than he gets credit for. This means they now have the ability draft anyone they want, or possibly trade the pick for another superstar, while being a top 3 team in the National Basketball Association. The Celtics do not need to bring in a first overall selection, as they could benefit more from trading it away. In exchange, along with some role players, the Celtics received the Nets' 2014, 2016, and 2018 first-round picks, with the right to swap picks in 2017.

The visit of the Palestinian President comes ahead of Modi's visit to Israel which is likely to take place in July. They want a state based on 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as their capital, something Netanyahu has resisted.


With guards Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball and wing Josh Jackson expected to be the first three players selected, it leaves the question as to what the Suns will do with their pick. But there appear to be other options out there - better fits - that could help Boston immediately.

LaVar Ball is convinced that adding his son will return the Lakers to the postseason, which they haven't reached since 2012-13.

There is no debate that Fultz and Ball have risen above the rest as the consensus top two picks in the draft.

With Julius Randle starting, Larry Nance Jr. has seen himself regulated to the bench.

The Celtics have tremendous respect for James and the rest of the Cavs, and they sound like a team that's not going to be easily intimidated. The second scenario is quite common in the NBA Draft.
