that time again... Draft Central is hopping !
The long awaited date is finally here, as teams have been making
moves in preparation for the Draft and the new season, where everyone is currently tied at
0-0-0 in the standings !!
The 2018/19 FBF Annual Rookie Draft is on the horizon, and remains
to be seen which one of the top two NBA prospects will go #1 overall, C Deandre Ayton or
PF Marvin Bagley III, but both appear to have the talent to help their new teams shine !!
The NBA Draft Combine
provided some potential insight on how the most recent crop of NBA newcomers may work out
on the big stage.
Dragonfire make it two...
Dragonfire were the fourth team to make it to back to back Finals, and turned that into
ring number two, their second in four years, after a sweep of teh Hague.
The D-Fire's ability to add that additional
banner in the rafters, was as a result of their guard duo of Russell Westbrook and James
Harden, the top two scorers in the series averaging 55 and 46 Fpts/G respectively.
Westbrook was named series MVP.
For the Storks, they could
not match the Dragonfire's juggernaut like scoring in the series, and fell behind early in
all four games especially after losing star C Joel Embiid to an injury.
All in all however, it was a great season for the
Storks, culminating in their first trip to the Championship Finals, and were led in
the series by SG CJ McCullom.
We now officially embark into the off-season, with the
NBA Playoffs tipping off soon... Next on tap in the FBF is the Draft Lottery show, set for
Tuesday May 15th, followed by the NBA Draft on Thursday June 21st.
