Aaron Gordon, in some years, would be a top-three draft pick. Not 2014, though. In this loaded draft, Gordon hasn’t even broken into the consensus top six occupied by Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid, Jabari Parker, Julius Randle, Dante Exum and Marcus Smart.

This game played out pretty much exactly as expected. Dwight Howard made his return to Staples Center and was lustily booed by Lakers fans. Then the game tipped off and the Rockets went out of their way to feed Howard in the post — he scored the Rockets first six points and had eight points,…

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…
