We once thought this would be a game changer, but there have been enough whispers and hints that maybe the 2014 NBA draft class just isn't that good. We talked to Jonathan Givony from Draft Express for some answers and broke down several of the top prospects including Joel Embiid, Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker.
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)

The NBA SEASON IS HERE! Hosts Frank Santos and Andy Flint still have some positional draft work to do, though. They will (quicker than usual) recap their power forward draft, as they have done for the other three positions. Is Anthony Davis already the best power forward in the league, or does he still have some work to do to pass guys like Blake Griffin and the ageless Tim Duncan?
But who are we kidding... they want to talk actual NBA basketball!
How will they do that, you ask? By offering some way too soon proclamations based on the first few days of action. Get ready for some NBA HOT TAKES! They will also talk an in-depth look in their new weekly segment, highlighting one team each week: this weeks team is the Atlanta Hawks.
