National Basketball Association mock draft 2017: Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball lead fresh faces

Will Lavar Ball Pull an Archie Manning? Analysis: Celtics receive top pick in the 2017 NBA draft, but Lakers also lottery winners

Owner Wyc Grousbeck was the lucky charm for a team that, despite its shamrock logo, hasn't had such good fortune in the lottery.

A night after winning Game 7 against Washington to secure an Eastern Conference finals matchup with Cleveland, the Celtics cashed in their 25 percent chance to land the No. 1 pick in the June draft. Let's just hope he makes the right move with this pick. I think that sometimes you need to be patient. "Anybody can help us". "In this day's National Basketball Association, picks are very, very valuable".

"I know that we have to play a lot better at the start", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.

The Boston Celtics had the top seed in the East.

Earlier in the day, the first paragraph of his page included the line, "He is best known for destroying the Nets in the Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce trade".

Russell has the versatility to play shooting guard should Los Angeles choose to move him off-the-ball alongside Ball, but the other option is to trade Russell considering he is a skilled, 21-year-old point guard with plenty of potential.

While three of the All-Time top franchises are seeing a rebirth of sorts, one member of that spectrum continues to slide. They rebounded relatively quickly, however, and then bolstered their squad with the No. 3 overall pick past year thanks to Brooklyn. "I wish we would have gotten the No. 1 pick, but we trust the process and it's going to be exciting to see what we're going for".

Now, the Celtics get their choice from a guard-heavy field of talent.

Bush. "I think the likelihood of Republican defections for Cornyn is really low", Mackowiak said. Trey Gowdy announced that he, too, removed himself from consideration.

ESPN lists Markelle Fultz, Ball, De'Aaron Fox, Josh Jackson and Jayson Tatum as candidates to be selected first overall.

It was pretty evident up to the draft lottery that the Lakers and the Ball family mutually felt like they would be a good fit.

First things first, the Los Angeles Lakers will have the second pick in the draft for the third straight year.

The timing was ideal for the Celtics, as Brooklyn finished with the worst record in the league.

- John Alicoate (@Jonnyc40) May 17, 2017@fenix3030 @abc15sports It makes me sick how rigged it is.

Boston acquired the Nets' 2014, 2016 and 2018 first-round picks in the deal. The New York Knicks are in the midst of a unsafe game with their top players, Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis but after Tuesday, that black hole got wider.

In the end, the Celtics and Lakers were the big victor on lottery night.
