Tomorrow is the big day for basketball fans.  The 2017 NBA Draft will announce the top players of the new season.  According to mock drafts, which most are saying the same thing Markelle Fultz is expected to go 1-1, with Lonzo Ball, expected to go to his hometown team the Los Angeles Lakers 1-2.  There has been a lot of talk surrounding Ball with his marketing guru father promising to make his baller sons an item.

I found it interesting that most of the players on this list are one and done players.  And the majority of the seniors are at the bottom of the projected draft list.   Expect coverage to begin around 8 p.m. and can be watched on the slow tube.
