On April 22 it was announced that junior forward, Javin DeLaurier, and junior center, Marques Bolden, declared for the 2019 NBA Draft with the option of returning to Duke.
The Boston Celtics have a plethora of first round draft picks this season and will try to use those draft picks to bolster a franchise that is currently on the rise and is full of young talent. The Celtics could have up to 4 first round picks in the first round if things work out in Boston's favor.
We had one hell of a week last week. Celtics-Rockets did not disappoint, Duke-UNC was hard fought (although it was not the best finish to a UNC game of the week), and Lebron and Embiid put on a show. Things are only looking up now as we enter Championship week for the NCAA. Don't let college ball take all of your attention, however, as there is a very strong slate of NBA games this week before Selection Sunday.
The title says it all. There are too many iconic games to count, but here are five damn good ones that celebrate everything great about this rivalry. Let's hope for another good one tonight.
The worst week of the NBA year is upon us. But fear not, we have but three days to suffer through before the beautiful game returns to us on Thursday. And once it does, we have a few marquee match-ups that you should definitely tune into if you're a basketball fan. So without further ado, here are the top five games coming up this week

The unanimous top prospects in this years NBA draft, in no particular order, are Markelle Fultz (PG, University of Washington), Lonzo Ball (PG, UCLA), Josh Jackson (SF, University of Kansas), and Jayson Tatum (SF, Duke University) and when I say unanimous I mean those are the only players all experts agree will be taken in the top five.
Are The Celtics A Good 3-Point Shooting Team? How Do The B’s Match-Up Against Potential 1st Round Foes? Why Is This UNC Championship Arguably the Most Significant? This and Much Much More!

Live by the 3, die by the 3. Isaiah & Avery Bradley going 1-11 from 3 -point range against Cleveland last night was certainly not the recipe for success. If the Celtics are to win their first playoff series since 2012, they must realize that they are not even an above average 3-point shooting team. For the season, the C’s rank 15th in the NBA in 3-point shooting percentage (35.9 %), despite being 3rd in total attempts per game (33). The only teams that take more 3-point attempts per game are Cleveland and Houston. Call me crazy, but this Celtics team should not be taking more 3’s per game than the Golden State Warriors.
Do you know the name? If yes, kudos... You are aware of one of the better big men in the upcoming NBA Draft. If no, continue reading... You do not want to sleep on Caleb Swanigan.
