Though it may sound backward, the 2017 offseason is shaping up to be far more exciting than the playoffs that directly preceded it. The basketball-watching world has already seen a number of out-of-the-blue trades and earth-shattering rumors, and the excitement only continues during the 2017 NBA draft.
After all, the next crop of potential superstars is joining the Association.
We’ll soon get to witness Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball running the show for NBA offenses. Frank Ntilikina will be showing off his wingspan. Jayson Tatum, Josh Jackson, Jonathan Isaac and others will be competing to become the draft’s premier forward.
It’s time for fancy hats and suits. It’s time for awkward handshakes with Adam Silver.
Above all else, it’s time to draft, and we’ll have you covered throughout the night with spot-on grades for each of the 60 selections.
