    Towson v Kansas

    The 2014 NBA Draft Class — assuming that Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Joel Embiid and the rest of the young stars declare — has been hyped as the best thing since 2003.

    Mar 22, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    A poor outing in the NCAA Tournament and his being benched at the end of the game by Mike Krzyzewski alerted America to what NBA scouts already knew — Jabari Parker doesn’t play defense.

    Feb 27, 2014, 12:08 PM EDT

    NBL Rd 18 - Melbourne v Adelaide

    A draft prospect who grew up overseas really wanted to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. But a team drafting before the Lakers also wanted the player. So, the player threated to sign with a foreign team if he couldn’t go to the Lakers. Safe to say, the Nets wish they had called Kobe Bryant’s…

    Feb 13, 2014, 3:17 PM EDT

    Kansas v Baylor

    General managers fall in love with size. Every year as the draft gets closer players 6’10 and up — even project big guys — climb draft boards everywhere because at the end of the day they have the one thing that is both important in the NBA and can’t be taught. The big men may…
