76ers, Celtics fans set to pack arena for draft

76ers, Celtics fans set to pack arena for draft

Not sure if this means that the Boston Celtics are looking to move down from the No. 3 spot to No. 7 spot, but it seems more likely that the Celtics are trying to give up some future first-round picks in exchange for the Timberwolves' draft pick tonight.

The other interesting trend in the National Basketball Association over the last 17 drafts is that teams typically find better players at pick Nos. Interviewed shortly before the pick was announced, LaVar Ball told ESPN that having his son play for the Lakers would be "the second best thing in the world that's ever happened to me" - right behind the birth of his three sons. I have no say in that. All kinds of players are coming out of this draft, but a do-it-all point guard like Fultz is hard to come by. All-Stars and Olympic champions such as Paul George and Jimmy Butler are front and center in trade talk that usually isn't this heavy until February.

Lonzo Ball usually grins and sighs when his father gets on the microphone, but he openly acknowledged he wanted to land with the Lakers, who needed a fortunate showing in the draft lottery just to end up with the second pick. "I knew this was happenin' before it was happenin'!" he said. "It happens nearly every year, so I wasn't shocked about it". If Ntilikina can become a version of Hill 2.0, it's a very good pick at No. 8 overall.

As shown in the trailer , Sarek-Spock's father-is a mentor of sorts to her, which creates a familiar Star Trek struggle. Also in the mix is Michelle Yeoh as Captain Philippa Georgiou ( Michelle Yeoh ), under whom Burnham serves, and Lt.

The Los Angeles Lakers have picked former UCLA guard Lonzo Ball in the National Basketball Association draft, setting up what they hope will be the start of a reversal in the team's recent misfortunes.

Makelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball went 1-2, as expected in Thursday night.

Though he's a skilled two-way player, he lacks the physicality in his game to be a force at the next level. While that works for picks for teams picking in the top 10, that advantage appears to disappear for teams picking No. 11 or later.
