Boston makes 2 picks, trade out of the other 2.

No trades made for vets. Will be a quiet night for Boston

To be honest, I think Zion is significantly overhyped. I think he’ll look much less impressive in the pros when he can’t simply just “out-athleticism” everyone else. He’ll need to develop his skills in other areas to reach his potential.

I agree. Right now he will be like blake griffin coming into the league. Imo. Really good player. Exciting. But not a savior.

I really think there is a great chance of that as well.  I still don't know what his position is in the NBA? is he a wing?  is he Charles Barkley part 2?

LOL NBA Reddit (and all of Reddit for that matter) is down. What horrible timing  :P

Streams on reddit got blocked and banned for good
There are other places though, watching right now

What!?!?? No more Reddit NBA streams??
Why? Now What?

There is another place I know of. Lot of popups, but streams are solid. Need am adblocker though

I think he's similar to Blake but with much more versatile defence, and he uses his athleticism better in general on defence.

I also think if New Orleans keep Lonzo, Zion will feast in the transition game

No spoilers!!!

Yes please - no spoilers. Half the fun of the night is waiting for the announcement, hoping certain players remain on the board and then hoping the right ones are announced for the C's.   Of course -- I rely on all of you for who the "right" ones are, so please share your college/Euro knowledge and your hopes for who will still be on the board come 14, 20 and 22.
