I'll admit it. I jumped aboard the Markelle Fultz hype-train. The 76ers, selecting first for the second straight year, should take Fultz before Magic Johnson takes Ball with the Lakers again in the No. 2 spot, which is exactly what the UCLA guard and his father, LaVar, want. The core of those has been Joel Embiid, who the team took third overall in the 2014 NBA Draft.

The Philadelphia 76ers are expected to draft Fultz No. 1 overall on Thursday night. The latest one is the BLOCKBUSTER trade between the Boston Celtics, who have the No.1 pick and the Philadelphia 76ers, who have the No.3 pick. Reportedly, Boston's staff ranks Tatum above Kansas' Josh Jackson, who received a medical evaluation but didn't work out for the team.

With that said, the recent rumors have claimed the Boston Celtics will keep their No. 3 pick that they wanted all along. And I was expecting him to be just that in Boston, as the No. 1 overall pick. So well-rounded, it's impossible to stop him.

"That's how I feel", he said. His Hall of Fame coach, Mike Krzyzewski, says Tatum's game "translates to the National Basketball Association maybe as well or better than anybody in the draft". That's what we talked about. Can you still go get Gordon Hayward?

If both Indians win, they are slated to bump into each other at the quarter-final stage, from the top quarter of the draw. "Also, tactically she needs to perform better towards the closing stages of the match", said Saina's coach Vimal Kumar.

"If I'm going to Philly, as soon as I step on the floor at the facility, my mindset is winning", Fultz said. By now the entire basketball world knows Lonzo Ball is a singular talent with a unique parent.

Philadelphia will pair Fultz, a high-scoring point guard out of the University of Washington, with Simmons, last year's No 1 overall pick who missed the entire season with a foot injury.

Long and athletic forward has drawn comparisons to Brandon Ingram, who the Lakers took with the No. 2 pick past year. "They said they love my dad and left it at that". It's De'Aaron Fox, Dennis Smith and the rest of the talented point guards in the class. He got so many accolades and showed he was the best player in the country. "I knew that from the start of his freshman year". Of the 20 players expected to be in the green room, 13 were college one-and-dones.

Less than two weeks removed from the NBA finals, the association is already grabbing headlines as it gears up for the offseason. The Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies also are without a pick, while Houston, New Orleans and Washington don't have one in the first round. Fultz is projected to go to the Sixers with the first pick and Ball is projected to go to the Lakers - the only team he has worked out for - as the second pick. Skeptics think they are too similar, with neither one of them a knockdown 3-point shooter or go-to scorer, at least at this point.

A general view of the TD Garden before the Cleveland Cavaliers play the Boston Celtics in game five of the Eastern conference finals of the NBA Playoffs at TD Garden. "At 6'8" with a high-jumping ability, he can add some much-needed size and rebounding that the Celtics have been lacking.
