Love Your Heart!

Love your heart people, life is too short to live without purpose! The NBA draft is WAY different than the NFL draft. Potential is so much more of a factor because NBA prospects are younger with lottery picks usually being 19-20 year olds. In the positionless NBA versatility and shooting are more important than ever.

Zion is an absolute stud and has to be the #1 pick regardless of who is picking #1. He is so strong, athletic, explosive and incredible of the dribble. Hands down the best prospect available.

Morant is a fantastic PG with shooting, play-making ability, and athleticism. He almost has to be the 2nd pick after Zion due to his upside and playmaking ability.

Coby White 6-5 185 PG/SG North Carolina Fr. White went on a tear from the middle to the end of the season. He is electric with the ball in his hands. The Wizards make this pick so they can move on from John Wall, hoping to trade him to a contender for another draft pick. White would make a good PG beside Bradley Beal.

Barrett is a stud in his own right. He can score, pass and shot. Everything you need from a wing player. The bulls just need more talent so they take the Best Player Available (BPA)

Hachimura is a do everything forward that has really developed his game. The Mavs need the BPA's as their roster is pretty slim.

Garland is a bit of a wildcard due to his injury and not getting the development that you wanted from his one year in college. However, he has all the tools and checks all the boxes of a star. Plus, in Orlando he can sit while Augustin starts for a year. I think he is the pick because Orlando is not going to win a championship with Augustin as the starting PG.

The Hawks has a great draft last year with 2 young players at their core. They just need to keep it up. Hunter is a versatile wing that can shoot and play defense. Atlanta has a high priority on shooters so this is a great match.

The Nets have a really good team with great guard play. They go big with this pick. I think they take Fernando over Hayes because he is more ready and Haye's game is similar to Jarret Allen whom the Nets already have. They want some diversity of skill sets so that the two can complement each other and play together for stretches.

Jarrett Culver 6-6 195 SG Texas Tech So. Culver is a great SG with all the tools. He excelled at the go-to scorer for the Red Raiders. The Knicks need everything so they take the BPA.

This may be a surprise to some but the Rockets have great shooters, one of the things they lack is an athletic freak that doesn't need the ball to be effective. Little is in that mold and would really bring something to this Rockets team that they are missing.

Jaxson Hayes 6-11 220 PF/C Texas Fr. Hayes has great potential but needs time to develop. With Anthony Davis all but wearing a Lakers uniform, they need some bigs to fill the gap.

Reddish ending up being the 3rd string on a pole at Duke. the TWolves hope that he can excel in the same role. Plus he brings shooting to the floor to help spread things out for Anthony-Towns and Wiggins.

I am going to predict that the Pelicans do a sign and trade deal with Davis to the Lakers including this pick and one for next year. They went big man with the #11 pick so they go wing here with Alexander-Walker. He is a little on the thin side but is a great shooter and can create for himself. A good young piece to rebuild the franchise.

KZ Okpala 6-8 195 SG/SF Stanford So. The Jazz have a great team but they got exposed in the postseason for not having a 2nd option behind Mitchell that can make teams pay. KZ can really attack the rim and score, averaging 18 ppg.

The Heat have a solid all-around team but they are kinda stuck in average mode. Langford should at least be able to fill the production Wade had at the SG position.
