  1. Who will Miles Bridges suit up for when the Suns play the Hornets? — You have both teams drafting him ; )

    • Haha, I sure do! I meant another Michigan guy for the Suns. Although two Miles Bridges might work if this were NBA2K. But thanks for reading and pointing that out John!

  2. Scary to see our pick as high as number 14 right now. (-: Hopefully by the end of January that will be in the low 20’s.

  3. Kevin Knox lol. We’re saved!!!

  4. One sleeper left out of most mock drafts is Omari Spellman. Big man with range from Villanova (from Cleveland, OH) was ranked 16 in Espn 2016 but was red shirted last year. Have you heard anything about him?

    • Awesome, thanks for the heads up! I will keep an eye out for him! I have indeed heard the name, obviously, being a NE Ohio guy myself. – Sam
