The 2019 NBA Draft is finally upon us! Dreams will come true, motivation and hunger will grow, and the table for free agency will be set. Oh, plus the 2019 NBA Champions were crowned since the last time Alex and Mike jumped on the mics. The excitement is brewing almost as if the playoffs are starting again because a big offseason is ahead.
First of all, congratulations to Kawhi Leonard, Pascal Siakam, Fred Van Vleet and the Toronto Raptors on a fantastic season. The guys here on the Atlantic Files both had them winning it all for a long time, but many others did not.
Second of all, it’s time to preview the draft. Zion Williamson, Ja Morant, and RJ Barrett are all looking set to go top three, but where will everyone else land? Could the New Orleans Pelicans now trade the fourth pick that they received from the Los Angeles Lakers to receive more picks? Who will be the diamond in the rough towards the bottom of the first round or second round? Listen to the full episode below to find out what Mike and Alex think!
No topic rundown this week, just a beginning congratulations to the Raptors and then the rest is all NBA Draft and offseason, enjoy!
