The 19-year-old Doncic has already bagged the EuroLeague Most Valuable Player plum and the EuroLeague Final Four MVP.

The 2018 NBA Draft provided fans across the globe excellent surprises and noteworthy selections.

One of the most utilized strategies for marketing and advertising a video game franchise in today's industry is through the use of high profile personalities to promote the title on social media.

The NBA is now considering getting rid of the so-called one-and-done rule, where players must spend at least one year in college.

"Basketball is really changing, so the two-man game is really hard to stop". "Certainly, last night we had a bunch of people preorder". Miami historically has been a stable and well-run franchise from the top down.

The final pick of the draft was Kostas Antetokounmpo, who is the younger brother of Milwaukee superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo and was picked by Philadelphia. They chose to go with the 7-foot-1 Mo Bamba heading into draft night already with an extremely crowded front court of Nikola Vucevic, Aaron Gordon, Bismack Biyombo, Jonathan Isaac, Maresse Speights and Khem Birch.

In the immediate moments following the announced destination of each prospect, the chance to talk NBA basketball was missed.

Personally, potential excites me, and I wonder what the most recent group of draftees will do in the league. Walker was viewed as a potential lottery pick by some. Aside from the weird trend of matching the race of pick and compared player, Billups failed to match playstyles altogether.

However, he is now facing a tough situation in Cleveland thanks to the uncertain future of LeBron James. As Billups made this comparison, Jackson Jr.'s highlights were shown with him spreading the floor and hitting threes. "You know, there's very little that is unknown about him". A 6-7, 210-pound wing, he averaged 17.7 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals for the champs, while shooting 51.4 percent from the field, 43.5 percent from three-point range (18th best in the nation) and 85.1 percent from the free throw line. Billups had to have done some preparation for the top prospects and their comparisons, and obviously it's uncertain how every draftee will turn out, but some of his choices made it seem like he was drawing names out of segregated hats. How else are they supposed to feel?

In the 2017-18 season, National Basketball Association fans got to see for themselves young players like Jayson Tatum, Donovan Mitchell, Ben Simmons, Lauri Markkanen and Kyle Kuzma burst onto the scene and made an impact on their teams and the National Basketball Association as a whole. It was ridiculous and a blatant move by ESPN trying to generate drama. While the jury remains out on the Suns' pair of top-10 picks from the 2016 draft, Dragan Bender (#4) and Marquese Chriss (#8), the trio of Bender, Jackson and T.J. Warren should pair well with the newcomers.

"That's probably all I can say at this point regarding him, but we don't take him for granted". "Having all that confidence leading up to that point when I saw [NBA commissioner] Adam Silver come out, I was just waiting for my name".
