Is 2020 an All-Time-Bad NBA Draft Class?
The Ringer » NBA Draft
by Zach Kram
1M ago
Getty Images/Ringer illustration Every draft has its busts, but the 2020 class is an outlier in all the wrong ways. It’s hard not to be when almost every lottery pick has fallen short of expectations. When the Golden State Warriors play in Philadelphia on Friday in a matchup of championship contenders, James Wiseman won’t take the court. That’s because the 2020 draft’s no. 2 pick is currently in the G League and has appeared in just two NBA games, spanning 14 total minutes, since early November. Wiseman’s path hasn’t been easy. He played just three games in college due to NCAA eligibility issu ..read more

The Future Is Scoot

Dan Evans He isn’t 7-foot-4, but Scoot Henderson has always stood out. More importantly, he’s never been afraid to be different. To Scoot, safe is risky. “You’re not following anybody’s footsteps,” he says. “You’re being the leader of yourself.” Scoot Henderson dribbles an imaginary basketball between his legs. He pump-fakes, one, two, three times, as if he were in a real game, and pulls up for a jumper at the elbow. But he isn’t on the hardwood. He’s standing in the middle of an empty parking lot outside of a high school in Henderson, Nevada. It’s cold and windy on this November morning. He a ..read more
