Lottery Mock Draft

WRP2Q2DWWAI6TJ57ZCSDXBHOGE

Following the most shocking draft lottery we have ever seen, our team has put together a mock draft of the first 14 picks in the draft based on who we think is best fit for each team.

1.New Orleans Pelicans- PF Zion Williamson (Duke, 6-7, 285)

  • This is a no brainer for the Pelicans. In reality, they can’t do anything wrong here. They really have two choices they can do here that can’t really hurt them. One is to retain Anthony Davis and make amends with him to form one of the best frontcourts in the NBA. The other option is to use a team like the Knicks or Lakers and trade Davis for their pick plus assets. For example, if the Lakers strike and send a package that includes the 4th overall pick, Josh Hart, Brandon Ingram and other assets, the Pelicans can now start their franchise with Williamson, Ingram, whoever they draft with number 4, Jrue Holiday and Hart. But for now, Pelicans fans can wait and see what happens to this franchise that can really only go up.

2. Memphis Grizzlies- PG Ja Morant (Murray State, 6-3, 175)

  • The Grizzlies have two options here: draft Morant and let him learn from Conley, or keep Conley around and try to build around RJ Barrett. Ultimately, the Grizzlies understand that prime years of Conley are declining and they need to use him as much as possible. They will use him to work with Morant. Teaming Morant with Jaren Jackson Jr. for the future is a great start for this rbuilding franchise. If the Grizzlies can ship out Conley at the deadline this year to a team like the Jazz, Pistons or Lakers they could receive some more assets to help rebuild along with Morant getting the whole second half of the year as the primary starter.

3. New York Knicks- SG RJ Barrett (Duke, 6-7, 210)

  • Well Knicks fans you got a Blue Devil, maybe not the one you wanted but Barrett will be alright. A long, athletic guard that will learn to play more forward in the NBA, Barrett has several comparisons to his game that will likely translate his game well. With Barrett, the Knicks can build with him, Dennis Smith Jr., and even Kevin Knox if they elect to keep the pick. Look for the Knicks to aggressively trade for Davis on draft night. If they can pull it off, it would likely mean giving up the pick, Knox, 2021 first round pick (from Dallas), and maybe even Mitchell Robinson. This would leave New York with Smith Jr., Davis and maybe DeAndre Jordan. Jordan is an unrestricted free agent whom the Knicks could possibly recontstruct his contract to build a power frontcourt. Knicks will also have spending money as well to go after big name free agents. Anything can happen in New York, for now, just be happy that you are guarenteed either Morant or Barrett.

4. Los Angeles Lakers- F DeAndre Hunter (Virginia, 6-7, 225)

  • The Lakers need size down low badly. Unfortunately, there are no centers projected to go this high. Hunter is the best available player to join the jam packed forwards for the Lakers. Drafting Hunter could be the start to forming a trade package for Davis. By solidifying Hunter, the Lakers can afford to ship out Kuzma, Ingram, Hart and others. LeBron needs talent and he needs talent now. Hunter is a safe pick that will provide hustle and a strong work ethic. Again, this pick is very simple based off of the fact that any team can strike for Davis at any given time.

5. Cleveland Cavaliers- SG Jarrett Culver (Texas Tech, 6-6, 195)

  • Culver is a great pick for Cleveland here. He brings athleticism and leadership to this young team. If the Cavaliers elect to stick with Kevin Love, new head coach John Beilein could have a lot of fun with this team. This would bring a starting five that includes featured players such as Collin Sexton, Culver, Love and Tristan Thompson. With role players that include Larry Nance Jr and Jordan Clarkson. No, they aren’t the greatest team out East but they will definitely fight for a playoff spot if they play their cards right. Look for Culver to open up Love more allowing for Love to have a healthy, bounce back season.

6. Phoenix Suns- PG Coby White (North Carolina, 6-5, 185)

  • I really like this pick for Phoenix. Ultimately, it comes down to White or Darius Garland. I think White is the most reliable after coming off a very successful freshman year with the Tar Heels. It seems to me that the Suns really want Devin Booker to focus on building his game and it is hard for him without help at the guard position. This gives them a big three of Booker, White and DeAndre Ayton to build with. New head coach Monty Williams wants to win and win now. After making minor moves last season that included bringing in role players like Tyler Johnson and Kelly Oubre Jr., the Suns have established a bench that can come in and fight. With good assets in TJ Warren and Mikal Bridges in the starting lineup, the Suns are definitely heading in the right direction in the rebuild.

7. Chicago Bulls- PG Darius Garland (Vanderbilt, 6-2, 175)

  • After an injury limited him to five games a season ago, Garland’s one year of college ball was highlighted by sitting out and watching his team go 9-23 including a winless conference season at 0-18. There was zero chance he was going back to school after that. Garland gives the Bulls a break at point guard. This will allow them to take a lot of pressure off of Kris Dunn and maybe even put Dunn to a sixth man role. After starting the rebuild, the Bulls have brought in some nice assets including Zach LaVine, Otto Porter Jr., Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter Jr. Teaming Garland up with this young Bulls team has Chicago fans excited for what the future holds.

8. Atlanta Hawks- F Cameron Reddish (Duke, 6-7, 215)

  • The third Blue Devil taken in the top ten, Reddish did not really get a chance to show off his talent being the third player out of the big three with Duke. Reddish could be a huge steal for Atlanta especially with them being able to finish out their starting lineup having two picks in the top ten. Reddish provides sharp-shooting and aggression to this young team. The Hawks are looking to build with players like Trae Young, John Collins and Kevin Huerter. Reddish gives them a great shooter who I think compares to a mix of Andrew Wiggins and Rudy Gay. Reddish will start right away and help them start off where they want to be.

9. Washington Wizards- F Rui Hachimura (Gonzaga, 6-8, 235)

  • Wizards fans could argue to go with a point guard here or to trade up and get a point guard. But with Hachimura on the board, it is important to get Beal a player to work with after getting rid of Porter Jr. a season ago. Hachimura was a huge success at Gonzaga and is a great pick up for Washington. With Howard picking up his player option for 2019-20, the Wizards can pass up on Jaxson Hayes to bring in a great player like Hachimura. Expect Rui to be inserted to lineup right away and give Washington a player who they can trust to work with Beal for a good duo. Also, when John Wall eventually comes back, this team could quite possibly start to scare the Eastern Conference again. It all depends on how Howard and Wall bounce back. They will also need to bring in key pieces to their bench whom they mostly traded away over the last two years.

10. Atlanta Hawks (from Dallas)- C Jaxson Hayes (Texas, 6-11, 220)

  • Being compared to Clint Capela, Hayes is a huge piece for Atlanta. Bringing him in with Reddish, Hayes forms a blocking machine down low with John Collins. This Hawks team will be one to watch out for over the next couple seasons as they could grow into a team that should not be messed with. It is only going to go up for you Atlanta fans out there!

11. Minnesota Timberwolves- F Sekou Doumbouya (France, 6-9, 230)

  • The first player from overseas is taken here with the 11th pick. Coming in at 18 years old, Doumbouya is a chance the Timberwolves could be willing to take. Ultimately, it comes down to him or Nassir Little here. Minnesota really likes the upside with the Doumbouya pick, it is very risky but he could make a nice fit with Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns. I can’t promise this will work out for Minnesota, but just think he could be the next Porzingis so don’t boo yet.

12. Charlotte Hornets- SF Nassir Little (North Carolina, 6-6, 220)

  • Finally a player that can force Marvin Williams out of the Hornets starting lineup. Nothing against Williams, but they have proven they can’t win with the lineup they have. Kemba Walker has put thewhole team on his back the last couple years and he neds help now before he decides enough is enough and leaves. The Hornets could flirt with picking Bruno Fernando here but it all comes down to which position is needed more. Little provides a great basketball background here for Charlotte. He was originally a top five pick but did not have the greatest year at North Carolina. Former coach Roy Williams speaks very highly of Little and says his game will translate very well. If the Hornets can find a way to get Nicolas Batum to play as good as the money he is making, and Willy Hernangomez can take the next step, the Hornets could be onto something here. Kemba will be nothing but smiles seeing Little’s name come up on draft day.

13. Miami Heat- PF Brandon Clarke (Gonzaga, 6-8, 215)

  • The Heat could use some help at the power forward position. Clarke will become the 2nd Gonzaga player taken in the lottery round and provides experience for this Miami Heat team. Whether he starts or comes off the bench for James Johnson, Clarke is a guy that can get the Heat into the playoffs rather than finishing out of them. A big question mark is with Hassan Whiteside, after Bam Adebayo took his starting spot a year ago, how will his bounce back season come? Hopefully Clarke gives him somebody to work with and helps Whiteside’s comeback as well. Good pick up for the Miami Heat.

14. Boston Celtics (from Sacramento)- C Bruno Fernando (Maryland, 6-10, 245)

  • I think the Celtics have one of two options here: take Fernando or take Bol Bol. Fernando is the more reliable player after Bol just sat out the whole year at Oregon. Fernando provides a bench player to work with Robert Williams for years to come. While Al Horford and forwards like Marcus Morris and Jayson Tatum will get minutes over these guys, if the Celtics do start to break apart, Williams and Fernando will be a great duo to have with them. Look for Fernando to play a big role off the bench next year if the Celtics do indeed take him with their 14th pick. Also, the Celtics have two more first round picks after this so expect them to make some trades and maybe even select a player from overseas.

John Beilein makes beeline for NBA

ncb_g_john-beilein_mb_576x324

It is a sad and confusing day to be a Wolverine fan. Early Monday morning John Beilein made the decision of leaving his high profiled career in Ann Arbor, Michigan to join the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA who recently finished 19-63 with good odds of getting the number one overall pick in the lottery on Tuesday.

Beilein’s deal is for five yearsand he took the time on twitter Monday to reach out to all of his fans. “Thanks to everyone at the Univ of Michigan for their incredible support these last 12 years. Our fans , alums , leaders, players and students are AMAZING It has been a heck of a ride and I hope you enjoyed our teams and staff as much as I did !Go Blue Forever ! #GoBlue”

What Beilein is leaving behind is a roster that will compete in the Big10. As Charles Matthews and Jordan Poole likely leave their name in the NBA draft, Ignas Brazdeikis draft decision could come down to Beilein leaving. Michigan also brings back names like Jon Teske, Isaiah Livers, Zavier Simpson, Eli Brooks and David DeJulius.

What he is taking on is a roster that has potential but has not had a good leader. Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr., Collin Sexton, and we can’t forget JR Smith. With these players plus a top three picking coming their way (more than likely either Zion, RJ Barrett or Ja Morant) they can really look positive for the future in Cleveland as they are getting a very good coach with a lot of experience.

Beilein’s coaching career includes coaching since 1975. He coached high school ball, junior colleges and has combined coaching division one basketball since 1992. He spent 1992-1997 at Canisius, 1997-2002 at Richmond, 2002-2007 at West Virginia, and 2007-2019 at Michigan. He is 754-425 during his time in college. He did not win a title but his accomplishments include 2 final fours (13′, 18′) two regular season Big Ten titles and two Big Ten tournament titles.

Only time will tell what this means for Michigan and their future in recruiting. This year they will bring in two top recruits, Jalen Wilson a four star recruit from Texas and Cole Bajema a four star recruit from Washington. Some names that have been thought of for the head coaching vacancy include promoting assistants Luke Yaklich or Saddi Washington, Laval Jordan (former Michigan assistant who is now coaching at Butler), Porter Moser (Loyola-Chicago head coach), Juwan Howard (former member of fab fivea dn Miami Heat assistant), or Rick Pitino. These are all nams that come to ind but don’t be surprised if a power-five conference head coach decides to walk out on his team for this opportunity.

For Michigan fans now, sit back and just wait to see what happens. It is a sad day to see the end of an era and hopefully only goes up for Big Blue fans this season.

Lightning tie NHL single season wins record, get swept first round

AR-304129601

The Tampa Bay Lightning ended this season by winning another President’s Trophy. Not only that but they tied the 1995-96 Detroit Red Wings for most wins in a single season with 62.

Coach Jon Cooper had one of the best rosters a team has seen in recent history and felt he had all of his troops ready. Stven Stamkos, Nikita Kucherov, Ryan Callahan, Victor Hedman, Tyler johnson, Ryan McDonagh, Brayden Point, Andrei Vasilevskiy, Yanni Gourde, JT Miller, Ondrej Palat. Those are all names of players on Tampa that were involved in this stud team.

The Columbus Blue Jackets had other plans for this team. Head coach John Tortorella found his team down 3-0 in the first game of the series. A spark was lit after facing that deficit and Columbus never looked back. In game one, the Lightning scored 3 goals in the first period. Columbus came out in the second period and got a goal midway through the period from Nick Foligno. Still facing the deficit, David Savard, Josh Anderson and Seth Jones all found the back of the net with the eventual game from Jones with just under 6 minutes to go.

Onto game 2, the Blue Jackets were not playing around. After a huge 5-1 win on Tampa’s home ice, they now got to go home with a 2-0 series lead that no one would have predicted. Five different Blue Jackets scored in this game and Matt Duchene had 1 goal and 3 assists. Game 3 was scoreless after the first period, Duchene put them on the board in the 2nd period followed by an Oliver Bjorkstrand goal 7 minutes later. The Lightning showed some life when Palat found the back of the net 4:40 into the final period. But Columbus shot off the come back when Cam Atkinson scored his 2nd goal of the series with 1 minute to play.

The Blue Jackets needed one more win in a matter of 4 chances to seal the deal and they did not mess around. Game 4 was a 7-3 victory and what better way to do it then in front of your home crowd.

Columbus who finished the season 47-31-4, with 98 points. But now they have just taken down the number one team in the league with ease. They now await the winner of the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs series which starts game 4 tonight. Toronto leads that series 2-1.

As for the Lightning, Dan Girardi, Brayden Coburn and Anton Stralman as unrestricted free agents and Slater Koekkoek, Brayden Point, Cedric Paquette, and Adam Erne are restricted free agents for the next year. With a big core still intact (Stamkos, Callahan, Johnson, Kucherov and more), the Lightning look to pull a complete turn around and come back stronger next season.

Masters 2019

By: Hunter Flynn

Picture12.png

“Hello friends” it’s that time of year again to dust of the clubs and get excited because it’s the tradition unlike any other. Welcome to Masters week! The field is set and the players are ready, stars of this years master include big names such as Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy. Defending champion Patrick Reed looks to defend his title at Augusta.

This years Masters is looking to be one of the best. Tiger is back in the hunt after winning the Tour Championship at the end of last season, and defeating McIlroy in the process 3&2 at the dell match play championship two weeks ago. McIlroy is on a hot streak (minus losing to Tiger) and is looking to be the favorite to win this week with 8/1 odds according to Vegas Insider. McIlroy is coming off a win at the Players’ Championship and a runner up at the WGC-Mexico. McIlroy has six top 10 finishes this season. He is just really playing good golf. Spieth is looking to get back to his winning ways at Augusta after having a winless year in 2018 and the same through the start of the 2019 season. But never count Spieth out at Augusta, with a 16/1 chance to win, the 2015 champion has gone 2nd, 1st, 2nd, 11th and 3rd all time at the masters. Last year Spieth chased after the leader with a final round 64. Which was one shot off the course record of 63, his only stumble was on hole 18 with a bogey. The kid without a major and who is most due for his first major is Rickie Fowler. With 15/1 odds this years his best odds to date at Augusta. The last five years at the Masters for Fowler has shown four top 15 finishes, along with a runner up finish last year posting 65 and 67 on the weekend, and missing the cut in 2016. The last player to watch is Brooks Koepka. After winning two majors last year, one defending his title at the U.S Open and the other winning the PGA just a few months later, don’t be surprised if you see this man at or near the top of the leaderboard.

Today is the last day to get yourself ready for the next four days. But today is family day..the par three contest a fun day to calm some of the nerves and have some fun. No player has won the par 3 contest and the Masters in the same year. But you never know this could be the year. But today I want to see some hole in ones by the players and maybe another caddie, lets see if Jack’s grandson can do it again! I want everyone to be safe don’t hurt yourself this year (Tony Finau)!!!!
