I publish an NBA draft board each year. But I also also start the process relatively late. Though I watch college basketball throughout the season, I don't drill down into the top prospects until the draft is approaching. As a result, my impressions don't always match the draft experts who track players for years coming up. Experts like Chad Ford (…

Wednesday was so insane around the NBA we barely talked about Kevin Durant having a game for the ages the night before. Chris Paul and COVID, Kawhi Leonard and his ACL, Stan Van Gundy out in New Orleans, then Scott Brooks out in Washington, Donnie Nelson out as GM in Dallas, and LaMelo Ball being named Rookie of the Year. It's almost too much to pr…
 
The Trail Blazers have reached a crossroads. After making the playoffs eight straight years, Portland ousted coach Terry Stotts. C.J. McCollum could get traded.
