The 2018 NBA draft was a delight

The NBA didn’t appear to get ahead of itself on Thursday, the league’s draft didn’t bust out of gate with anything legendary, nobody’s dealing a top pick, nobody’s even beginning to assume anything about LeBron. That’s delightful, it means most of the NBA’s front offices aren’t panicking and it also means nothing’s been given up on. The options are more impressive and the pathways toward those sorts of basketball dilemmas open right the hell up in July, June is funky and a blast but it’s also amateur hour. The sort of sandbox the Kings and Hawks play in.
