2022 – NBA Draft 2022: Jabari Smith and Chet Holmgren predicted No. 1 and 2 – live! | NBA

What I enjoy most about NBA Draft Day is seeing which players dress conservatively and which players take inspiration from Batman villains. I prefer the second kind.

forecast

The Orlando Magic has the best overall selection, and while most other venues are more conservative, why not take the big risk at the Magic to see where Chet Holmgren could take the team?

They almost certainly won’t It sure looks like Smith Jr. is the guy for her. Well, here’s my list of who should be in the top 5 just based on how much I like them. The teams tasked with making decisions, all of whom know more than I do, might think differently.

1. Chet Holmgren, C, Gonzaga

2. Jabari Smith Jr., PF, Auburn

3. Paolo Banchero, PF, Herzog

4. Jaden Ivey, SG, Purdue

5. Shaedon Sharpe, SG, Kentucky

Look, maybe he won’t be successful in the NBA, but Chet Holmgren is easily the funniest player in the lottery.

So the 2022 draft will be held at Barclays, home of the Brooklyn Nets. I’m wondering if there’s been any news from the Nets camp over the past few days?

Sources: Kevin Durant is monitoring the Brooklyn Nets’ situation and considering options with his future.

This now opens the path for Kyrie Irving to proceed on finding a new home via opt-in and trade.

Oh. That could be one thing: There are conflicting reports, but it’s not out of the question that the Brooklyn Nets could fall apart. It’s almost as if Kyrie Irving isn’t the kind of player you’d want to trust with the future of your franchise.

It’s ok if Irving leaves it sure sounds like a vocal segment would be interested by Lakers fans. For those of us who enjoyed the Dwight Howard-Steve Nash experiment, there’s a certain car crash appeal to sending it to an LA team desperate for a quick fix.

Our very own Daniel Levitt created some infographics for today’s draft, so I’ll theoretically post them later today. When I figure out how to do it right.

While we’re only covering the first round of the NBA draft here, it’s probably worth noting that the entire event will only last 58 picks instead of the usual 60. The Milwaukee Bucks and the Miami Heat both lost the second-round draft picks for violating the league’s weird and occasionally downright absurd manipulation rules last offseason.

Preamble

Every year I forget how quickly the NBA draft comes after the NBA Finals. If they had lasted to a Game 7 it would have been played on Sunday. As Draymond Green would eagerly remind you, that didn’t happen as the Golden State Warriors defeated the Boston Celtics in six games. Now that we’ve got just a brief respite, the NBA is rushing face-first into the future as teams select the young players they hope will ultimately help catapult them to a future Finals .

The Orlando Magic has the top pick overall in the 2022 NBA draft, while the Oklahoma City Thunder has the second, their highest of three picks. Pundits have suggested it’s not impossible for many NBA teams to act in the next few hours. However, whether there will be as much movement as at NFL Draft Day seems questionable: NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and Co. do not come to us live from Las Vegas, so their draft may not be quite as manic as football.

The conflict in this year’s draft appears to be a potential advantage over NBA readiness. The most talented player might be Gonzaga’s Chet Holmgren, but there are concerns the razor-thin center just doesn’t have the right body type to survive at the NBA level. Still, expect him to finish in the top 3 alongside Duke’s Paolo Banchero and Auburn’s Jabari Smith Jr., both of whom look safer. Jaden Ivey looks like the clear No. 4, but that happens to belong to the Sacramento Kings and, well, this could end up being a problem. After that it’s a bit free for everyone, but that’s always the fun of these annual events.
