This year's National Basketball Association draft makes for a particularly interesting guessing game, thanks to a deep pool of one-and-done prospects and to the presence of a team near the top of the draft closer to contending for a title than is typical for lottery participants. A select few will be drafted early and sign huge contracts.
"The Cavs were obviously the more dominant team, but they swept everybody but us and if Kyrie didn't go for 42 points in Game 4 they would have lost that one too".
The Triangle has churned out eight lottery picks over the last five NBA Drafts, with Duke, North Carolina and N.C. State all represented.
Tatum, at No. 3, of course was the premier haul of the draft for Boston. The Celtics instead stuck to their draft plan and secured a player who, according to fellow Blue Devil alumnus/team owner Steve Pagliuca, the team has long prized.
Boston surprised many by selecting Brown as the No 3 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft nearly a year ago today.
And he had particularly high praise for Thomas, saying, "He's one of the best players". Both will serve him well as he begins his journey.

"I'm excited to play for the greatest franchise in the National Basketball Association", he said. And maybe you saw the Jimmy Butlertrade that cost the Minnesota Timberwolves next to nothing and wondered why Danny Ainge didn't pounce on that kind of deal immediately. I'm confident in my shooting.
Mika declined interview requests prior to the draft, but when he made the decision in March to take this journey he said he was ready for the challenge.
"To get back to where they were past year and get over that hump", he said. "I have confidence in myself and my abilities". "He'll probably end up working out for 15 to 20 teams".
Malik Newman, who sat out last season under NCAA transfer regulations but practiced against Mason and Jackson all season, also sees parallels between the two former Jayhawks.
The conference was dominant at the top of the second round as well with the first two selections.
"Nah, I'm not thinking about me at all", Graham said. "If he slides past 35 or 36 I would be surprised". "I look at him as a playmaker, a scorer". Teams can bring him off the bench. Ideal example of a guy that could fall to seven and become an All-Star and potentially the best player in this draft. He is a great perimeter shooter in space. "He can score in any way, I don't think anybody can stop him, honestly".
Boston will receive the 2018 first-round pick of the Los Angeles Lakers - if that selection falls between the No. 2 to No. 5 range.
It's not really a knock on Tatum, by the way, to wonder whether he'll ever be as good as Butler.
Whichever one doesn't go to Boston should go to Phoenix at No. 4.

He needs to work on his outside shot, but also has the chance to be an elite defender in the National Basketball Association . As time went on and they got older, they got team chemistry and now look at them. "There's a lot to like about Jayson".
I know it's going to take time to build and we're building, but when we get the right people in here, we're going to win". I hope that I'm going to grow my game 1-on-1. "The guy who I think will lead us back to where we want to get to".
