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.
Colonels outmuster Royals...
Kentucky had finally made it to the Finals,
and turned that into a ring, their first in franchise history after besting Scranton in
The Colonels ability to add that banner in the
rafters, was as a result of their front court duo of Karl Anthony Towns and Anthony Davis,
the top two scorers in the series averaging 45 and 47 Fpts/G respectively. Davis was
named series MVP.
For the Royals, they could
not match the Colonels juggernaut like scoring in the series, and fell behind early
managing to avoid the sweep ekeing out a win in game two.
All in all however, it was a great season for the
Royals, culminating in back to back appearances to the Championship Finals, and were
led in the series by SG DeMarr DeRozan.
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.
