The 2015 NBA Draft is officially in the books!
Kentucky Wildcats power forward Karl-Anthony Towns was selected first overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves. Towns joins a T-Wolves squad that boasts reigning NBA Rookie of the Year Andrew Wiggins and well-respected big man Kevin Garnett.
With the second overall pick in the draft, the Los Angeles Lakers selected Ohio State Buckeyes point guard D'Angelo Russell. Intrigued by Russell's "star" power and explosive offensive arsenal, the Lakers skipped on highly-coveted rim protector Jahlil Okafor in favour of drafting the Buckeyes' skilled floor general.
Unsurprisingly, the Philadelphia 76ers, bearing the third overall pick, subsequently selected the aforementioned Jahlil Okafor. The 19-year-old Duke University product joins a Sixers front court that includes two former first round picks in Nerlens Noel and Joel Embiid.
First Round - Top 15 Selections:
1. Karl-Anthony Towns (MIN)
2. D'Angelo Russell (LAL)
3. Jahlil Okafor (PHI)
4. Kristaps Porzingis (NYK)
5. Mario Hezonja (ORL)
6. Willie Cauley-Stein (SAC)
7. Emmanuel Mudiay (DEN)
8. Stanley Johnson (DET)
9. Frank Kaminsky (CHA)
10. Justise Winslow (MIA)
11. Myles Turner (IND)
12. Trey Lyles (UTH)
13. Devin Booker (PHX)
14. Cameron Payne (OKC)
15. Kelly Oubre (ATL - Traded to WSH)

Who had the best draft?
Who had the worst draft?
What in the hell were Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks thinking?
Are there going to be more trades coming down the pipe?
NBA fans have had only about a week to rest. The NBA Finals wrapped up last week and eyes have now turned to this Thursday. The 2015 NBA Draft is discussed in this 2nd episode of "Ben on Hoops."
Montana native and current University of Portland student Seth Roessmann joines me on the show to give his draft day predictions, help me dissect the prospects, look at potential steals, sleepers to watch out for, and much more.
With the 2015 NBA Draft officially in the books, it is time for find out who were the winners and losers as all 30 teams have taken the first step to contending for the 2016 NBA Championship. Be sure to check out the 300lbsofsportsknowledge Show this Saturday night as I will be recapping the 2015 NBA Draft!!!!!!
The 2015 NBA Draft takes place tonight at 6 p.m. CST and the Minnesota Timberwolves own the No. 1 pick. Outside of a mirror image of Wiggins, the T-Wolves can practically draft whoever they desire. Rumors have Minnesota taking Karl-Anthony Towns, but why is he nearly the consensus number one overall player? Is Jahlil Okafor being overlooked?
I don't think the choice is that clear-cut, and I'll run through the latest mock draft from Chad Ford. I'll give my take on some of the guys I like, I don't like as much, and some sleepers to look for in the 20's and early second round.
