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.
Wiz repeat rolling over
Defending champs No Carolina had the best Regular season record for the second season in a
row, and now are the fourth team in league history to have back to back titles too.
The Wizapins add a third banner to the rafters
after sweeping the Possum Pride in four straight, led by PG Russell Westbrook who was
named series MVP after leading all scorers with a 55 FPt/G average, ahead of teammate C
Anthony Davis' 46.
For Ohio, they could not match No Carolina's juggernaut like
scoring in the series, and fell behind early in all four games.
All in all however, it was a great season for the
Possum, culminating in their first trip to the Championship Finals, and were led in
the series by PF James Johnson.
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.
