Magic Johnson On Celtics Getting No. 1 Pick: 'I Still Hate Them'

Malik Monk #5 of the Kentucky Wildcats walks off the court after being defeated by the North Carolina Tar Heels during the 2017 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament South Regional at FedExForum Five burning questions ahead of Celtics-Cavaliers, and one rather stark prediction
Francis Olson | 19 May, 2017, 23:37

I think the flawless fit for Lonzo - at least when it comes to matters on the court - is actually no. 3 to Philly, where he could play off of Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. Some of it is more ready to step in and compete right away.

"That's something he can do". Due to the July 2015 trade that Hinkie struck with Kings general manager Vlade Divac, Philadelphia held the right to swap their pick with Sacramento's.

Kansas guard Josh Jackson (11) elevates for a dunk against West Virginia during the second half, Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017 at WVU Coliseum. I would keep an eye on Jayson Tatum of the Duke Blue Devils possibly slipping into the Magic's range and possibly even De'Aaron Fox of Kentucky and Frank Ntilikina from France. For the season, Fox averaged 16.7 points, four rebounds, 4.6 assists, and 1.5 steals per game in just under 30 minutes of time on the court per game. He had just three games under 10 points with a career-high of 29. If anything, Cleveland leaping from ninth to first, as Chicago had in 2008, only reinforced the whole point of the lottery by showing awful teams that their tanking efforts could be futile. "We jumped up one more spot". That's a big deal though, and it's definitely what the Sixers want to figure out most about Jackson. At least for part of it. How? "He has the talent where he has a chance to do that".

James called his own number early and often, tallying 15 points in the first quarter while making seven of his first eight field goals primarily on drives to the basket for lay-ups.

"To predict that [the playoffs are] going to happen next year with so many things to do before we start next season, including the draft, including potential trades, including free agency, it's really tough to determine that at this point", Colangelo said. Comes from a good family.

Colangelo hasn't done too much of outcome yet outside of drafting Simmons, good or bad.

I can't imagine he will reveal anything real before the pick it made and as confident I am that it ill be Fultz, it would not surprise me one bit to see Ainge reach a bit.

Police warn Harry Potter fans to stay off 'Hogwarts' viaduct
Universal Hollywood's Wizarding World is jumping into the nightly entertainment game - a first for a Harry Potter park. The Hogwarts Express is shown steaming across the viaduct in several Harry Potter films.

Yes, the Sixers are on record saying that Simmons will serve as the team's point guard next season, despite checking in at almost seven feet tall.

"Actually, it was a forerunner, I was setting him up for Ben Simmons - who has already said he's not playing in the summer league, which is a joke anyway". George and Kimmel talked about the speculation of him leaving for the Los Angeles Lakers, and PG did little to dismiss those rumors. Incredibly explosive and you're talking about a guy that still has that explosion coming off an ACL injury.

Will the Sixers still need a starting point guard of the future? How that will work out remains to be seen. And why not? At this point in the long, long, long development of a rebuilding process, it would be a basketball-appropriate move and not just the latest in a continuing series of asset collection. "I think Ben obviously can really pass and he has a great feel for the game. We'll make sure it's different on Game 2".

"Can it work? Certainly, it can because he's talented".

Beyond his unparalleled drive, Thomas had to find a team willing to accept his unusual combination of enormous talent and every day height.

Bryan Colangelo indicated Wednesday that the Sixers are high on the caliber of players projected to go in round two.

Check out Capel's full interview here, where he discussed Jackson and Smith more in depth, Jahlil Okafor and Joel Embiid.
