After following the SEC and the rest of college basketball all season, here is my top 30 prospects for the 2019 NBA Draft. The first 14 prospects on this list, who deserve to be headed for the lottery, have more in-depth breakdowns while prospects 15-30 receive shorter descriptions. And yes, this is just one man’s opinion who watched way too much college basketball last season.
1. Zion Williamson, Forward, Duke
I’m all in on Mr. Williamson. Yes, we all know he is a hulking behemoth who can jump put of a gym. However, he is so much more than that. Combining that athleticism with his endless motor and defensive potential easily makes him the best overall prospect since Anthony Davis in 2012.
Zion Williamson's 62 dunks at Duke!
— Ballislife.com (@Ballislife) May 14, 2019
As far as weaknesses, his mechanics on his jump shot are still funky and he doesn’t get much lift underneath him when he shoots. He also needs to add a few more offensive moves to his game besides that Julius Randle spin move (which is very effective). But these are still nitpicks. Williamson actually shot better than his other talented teammates last season and his current offensive moves are borderline unguardable. Who knows just how good Zion will be, but he is a once in every decade type of talent. He is the prize of this draft.
2. Ja Morant, Point Guard, Murray State
I think there is a clear second-best player in this draft, and that title belongs to the best college player from the state of Kentucky last season. Morant is an uber-athletic point guard and an elite playmaker. “Skinny John Wall” is actually a relatively close comparison. He is in the mold of De’Aaron Fox from a body-build perspective, but I think his game is closer to that of a healthy Wall due to Morant’s flashiness.

— Mike Schmitz (@Mike_Schmitz) May 17, 2019
While that is certainly high praise, Morant is not the generational prospect that Williamson is. His weaknesses are much more apparent. Morant needs to refine his jump shot as well, but more importantly, he is just straight-up bad on defense. This will make him a liability against the several great point guards in the league today. Overall, despite those critiques I do think his complete offensive game makes him a guaranteed non-bust at the next level. If he can learn behind Mike Conley Jr. in Memphis, I think he will end up being an all-star in the NBA.
3. Jarrett Culver, Shooting Guard, Texas Tech
Many say this is a three-player draft. I just don’t see it that way. After Zion and Ja, I think there is a large drop off. I’m not suggesting that there aren’t any good players after them, but I just don’t see any sure-fire all-stars. Many scouts have Duke’s R.J. Barrett here and for good reason. However, I think the more complete player is Texas Tech’s Jarrett Culver.
Jarrett Culver's offensive skill set is real enticing, man. pic.twitter.com/9xeVjSNJ6e
— ? (@LifeOfABruin) May 15, 2019
Culver is easily the better shooter, arguably the better playmaker, has a better personality on the court, and is the better defender. While I’m not sure just how high his “ceiling” really is, I think his bust potential is smaller than any other player on this board. Culver also carried the Red Raiders all the way to the championship even while being the guy every team concentrated on. His role will be dependent on the team that is smart enough to pick him, but Culver is going to be good at whatever is asked of him at the next level.
4. R.J. Barrett, Forward, Duke
Before the college basketball season started, I had Barrett as the best player in this draft. I still really like his overall talent level despite him falling to No. 4 on this list. I actually think his greatest attribute is his play-making ability. Barrett brought the ball up the court many times for Duke and made some outstanding passes for his teammates. He has the ability to make those around him better.
— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) May 15, 2019
However, there are two big questions facing him. The first being his three-point shooting. For a guy that shoots a lot of 3’s, he is not very good at it at all which is a problem in a league that has made a shift to that style of play. But the biggest problem I have with Barrett is his inclination to play hero-ball at the end of games. Barrett can become an all-star in this league. However, if he doesn’t fix his shot and that over-alpha mentality then he could be someone that no one likes to play with.
5. Brandon Clarke, Power Forward, Gonzaga
I have zero idea why more scouts do not have this guy higher on their boards. Clarke was easily the most underrated player in college basketball this season. Not only did he average 17 ppg and 8.6 rpg, but he also was fifth in the entire sport in blocks per game (3.8). He is an incredibly explosive athlete who is already an elite-level defender because of his timing in blocking shots.
The only thing holding him back from being higher on my board is that his midrange jumper needs more work for a guy that is just 6’8. Its “alright” right now, but it needs more consistency in order to make him a good offensive player at the next level. Worst-case scenario I see him being a Kenneth Faried-type at the in the league due to his high motor and competitiveness, but he has the potential to be much, much better than that.
6. Nassir Little, Forward, North Carolina
From here on out, I think there is another big drop off as far as guaranteed “good picks.” I’m confident that the top 5 players here will be good NBA players, but after that….oh boy. Good luck finding a quality starter. That’s just how the draft is this year.
This leads me to put Little here at No. 6. This is pretty controversial as some scouts truly hate him and won’t touch him with a ten-foot pole. The reason is that at times for UNC he seemed genuinely uninterested in playing hard when it didn’t matter. This is a huge red flag. However, when he is engaged like he was in the NCAA Tournament, Little is easily the best one-on-one defender in this draft. I see him right now as Jaylen Brown but with a weaker jump shot. Not the most attractive sentence, but at such a young age with an NBA ready body, Little is worth the risk. Either he turns into Stanley Johnson, or his offensive game improves and he turns into a poor man’s Kawhi Leonard. In this draft, that makes him my sixth best prospect. Always. Gamble. On. Defense.
Nassir Little gets it. Really enjoyed diving into his game yesterday on ESPN2. His understanding of where he excels and where he can still improve will allow him to maximize his potential. pic.twitter.com/mAMadKfWCY
— Mike Schmitz (@Mike_Schmitz) May 17, 2019
7. Darius Garland, Point Guard, Vanderbilt
The first SEC player to make an appearance on this list just so happens to have played only five games of collegiate basketball due to injury. Like I said, its not a very deep draft. However, I do really like what very little I saw from Garland. At the point guard position, I think he is far and away the best shooter in this draft. His release is incredibly quick and natural. His handle is elite, and while he is a shoot-first PG he is still a good passer.
Those positives came against extremely weak competition, however. Garland’s frail frame also makes him a potential defensive liability. Also, we don’t know how good of a finisher he is at the rim. Basically, all that we for sure know about Garland is that he can shoot. That’s not enough for me to move him up higher on this list, but in a make-or-miss league it’s definitely a good attribute to have.

We’re now officially towards the back-end of May, and yet we somehow don’t appear to be any closer to the end of the recruitment… that just won’t end. I’m of course talking about Jaden McDaniels, the five-star forward from Seattle, who has seemingly been trying to decide between Washington and Kentucky since the Obama administration. Yet despite summer school starting in just a week or two, he doesn’t appear to be any closer to actually making his college decision.
Or is he? Who knows.
Frankly, it feels like he could commit a minute after this article publishes. Or a month from now. No one seems to have any idea. McDaniels doesn’t do interviews, doesn’t seek attention on social media and doesn’t truly seem in any rush to make a decision.
If anything, he is the opposite of what college basketball recruiting is in 2019. He doesn’t seek the spotlight. He actively avoids it.
Never was that more apparent than this weekend, when we actually got some interesting information about McDaniels recruitment. Information that came from the most unlikely source: His older brother Jalen.
San Diego State’s Jalen McDaniels was at the NBA Draft Combine this weekend, where he was stopped by the Lexington Herald-Leader’s Jerry Tipton and asked about his younger brother.
There, Tipton asked if the elder McDaniels had any idea when his brother would decide. I mean, his older brother would have to know, right?
“Whew, man, I’m wondering the same thing, honestly,” Jalen said. “I mean, honestly. I feel like it should be coming soon, though.”
“To be honest, I don’t know what’s holding it up,” Jalen said. “I know it’s between two schools. He’s just trying to make the right decision.”
My goodness. In a world where it’s easier to get information out of Fort Knox than it is the McDaniels camp, doesn’t this interview tell you everything you need to know about Jaden McDaniels recruitment? If McDaniels own brother has no idea where he is going, is it possible that maybe, just maybe, Jaden himself has no idea either?
The answer is probably a “yes.” And if Jaden really does have no idea where he wants to go to college then let me say this: He deserves respect from all of us (especially folks like me in the media) while making his decision.
Now look, before we go any further, I already know what some of you are thinking: “Aaron, do you really believe that Jaden McDaniels own brother has no idea where he is going to college?” It of course possible that the elder McDaniels does know and doesn’t want to give away the suspense. It’s also certainly possible that, considering that Jalen McDaniels has been at San Diego State the last three years, that he just isn’t all that close to his brother’s decision-making process any more. That certainly seems plausible.
At the same time, if you just read his comments, do you really believe that the elder McDaniels is part of some big conspiracy and trying to shield his brother? Or do the comments read like an older brother who genuinely has no idea what his baby bro is thinking (and yes, I just dropped a casual, Johnny Drama “Baby Bro” in this article).
To me it’s the latter.
And when you think about it, doesn’t it kind of make sense that Jaden McDaniels might be genuinely confused as this point? After all, as much as we professionalize all these big-time basketball players and assume that they’ve got it all figured out (since they’ll be in the NBA within a year), the reality is that they’re still 17, 18 and 19-years-old. For most of them, this is the first truly big decision that they will make in their lives. That’s especially the case for Jaden McDaniels. He isn’t a kid who has been the focus of a big-time recruitment since he was a sophomore in high school, but was relatively unknown until about a year ago. He also isn’t some kid who spent a year or two at Oak Hill Academy or Montverde adjusting to life away from home. This is all, quite literally, new to him.
So, you think that this might be overwhelming for him?
Seriously, think about everything he’s choosing between right now: The place he has called home his whole life, or a school that’s 3,000 miles away. Playing in front of friends and family for the next year, or on the biggest stage in college basketball. Playing for a solid Pac-12 program where expectations will be somewhat low, or on a team that will very likely start the season ranked in everyone’s Top 5 and be expected to compete for a national title. Being the hometown hero? Or playing for his “dream school.”
When you think about it like that… man is that a lot on the shoulders of an 18-year-old kid.
Maybe I’m overthinking things, but to me, this doesn’t seem like the type of kid to simply use social media to build drama between two fan-bases. He doesn’t seem to be waiting on anything honestly, other than for his heart to tell him where to go to college.
To me, this just seems like an 18-year-old kid who is truly torn on his college decision.
If his brother has no idea where he’s going, it probably means no one does including Jaden McDaniels.
So let’s all give him the respect he deserves as he tries to figure things out.
After weeks of strenuous preparation from his coach, Drew Franklin, Ryan Lemond’s future is on the line at the University Club.
KSR’s resident doofy sidekick will have five putts. For each putt he misses, Ryan will spend two days in KSJail. For each putt he makes, he’ll win $1,000 for the charity of his choice. Can he conquer the course and triumph, or will he be forced to get cozy in a corner at KSBar?

If pictures say a thousand words, two in this description are “16 stars.”
Not too long after Justin Rogers announced his commitment to Kentucky, John Young shared the picture above from Keeneland. Taken during the April 27 official visit weekend, all four players have now committed to UK (from left to right): Andru Phillips, Rogers, Beau Allen and Young.
Only missing four-star defensive tackle Lamar Goods, UK’s young 2020 class has so many stars, you can’t stare directly into the eyes of the Rivals’ recruiting page.
UK’s five commitments have an average four-star rating. Unfortunately, they’re still in the mid-30s of each recruiting service. Rivals ranks UK’s class 36th; in 247 UK falls in at 32. Quality goes a long way, but they don’t yet have the quantity to climb near the top. Following the addition of Rogers, I have a feeling that will not be a problem much longer.

Is there anywhere Rick Pitino goes that crazy doesn’t follow? Pitino’s Panathinaikos was set to begin the Greek League Playoffs vs. Olympiacos today, but because of tensions between the two teams, Olympiacos forfeited, the latest in a string of bizarre delays that has Pitino so upset he’s vowed to grow a beard until his team plays again.
“I was paid to make Panathinaikos a playoffs team and tried to give some advice about the future of the team,” Pitino told EuroHoops.net. “That’s what coaches do. At this point I can’t wait until we play again, that’s why I grow a beard. I will keep growing it until we play again.”
According to EuroHoops.net, when Olympiacos failed to show up for the game, Pitino had his team scrimmage against each other, and hilariously, someone put a raw chicken on what was supposed to be Olympiacos’ bench:
“I can’t talk about Olympiacos, though I can talk about Panathinaikos,” Pitino said after the scrimmage. “It’s disappointing because I came here to coach for basketball and not to know about the morals of the sport. It will be a month without having played basketball. We are disappointed in the Federation that has brought us this far back. Most of the players should be done with their responsibilities on June 15, but for about a month now they don’t play. It’s disappointing. I’ve seen things that I haven’t seen those 40 years as a coach, both good and bad”
Last week, Pitino shared his frustrations with the Greek Federation on Twitter:
In my 5 months in Greece, I’ve witnessed things that I’ve never seen in coaching. Today they play the finals in soccer. No fans are allowed. 1000 invitations given to AEK-PAOK and the Federation & 3000 police. 3-1 police to fans. And there were 45 people protesting Lakers ?
— Rick Pitino (@RealPitino) May 11, 2019
Some things I understood: playing without any fans (due to suspension for fights in stands)
Playing Greek Cup with just kids in stands -but now I don’t have a clue what’s going on. Playoffs suspended because a team is going to court! Where’s David Stern when you need him!
— Rick Pitino (@RealPitino) May 13, 2019
Apparently not. Not sure what to think anymore. I’m taking my team to Mykonos for practice. Our great GM, Manos, is treating. Thanks pic.twitter.com/i7yogRNTdv

Please send me back to Greece to cover this mess.

When this decade began, American action films were in a dark place. The superhero had already cemented his iron clad grip on the box office by 2010, so the days of the MCU and its many imitators were already coming out of the depths to deliver clean, family and CGI heavy action fare. The Fast and Furious franchise (Fast Five is the only good F&F movie and I will pretentiously scold anyone who says otherwise) and Liam Neeson’s cadre of choppily edited sexagenarians were seemingly the only avenues of action entertainment outside comic book characters. Even Sylvester Stallone’s mindlessly stupid and violent Expendables series had gone the bloodless and boring route of the previously mentioned Muscular Car Bros and died fairly early on in the decade. Unless you were watching masterfully done foreign films like The Raid and its face melting sequel or The Man From Nowhere, it was a very sad time to be a fan of action films. When all hope seemed lost, a savior returned from exile to save us all. He’s an ageless mystic. The One. That guy who rode on a fast bus. His name literally translates into “Cool Breeze”. In 2014, Keanu Reeves came back to us, and he brought with him an icon for a new generation of cinema. The Baba Yaga himself, John Wick. The guy you send to kill the Boogey Man. 5 years later, the 3 piece suit wearing assassin and master of gun fu has slaughtered his way into a third film, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum. And like the previous two entries in the franchise, it is well worth your time.
The third entry in the Wickverse picks up immediately where its predecessor left off; Wick is on the run after being declared excommunicado, and in this world of shadowy super assassins and mysterious crime syndicates, that designation is a death sentence. He’s got a 14 million dollar bounty on his head and every assassin in New York City hot on his trail. Even odds, as proclaimed by Ian McShane’s droll series mainstay Winston. The first 30 or 40 minutes of the film fly by in a mesmerizing blur as John battles his way out of the city. Library books, old timey revolvers, horses, and more are ingeniously put to use by our master assassin. Chapter 3 has some of the most creative kills in the franchise, whether that’s in the form of that library book being used to pulverize a face or John using a feckless henchman as a pin cushion, you’ll be cheering and wincing in equal measure.
The same can be said of the rest of the films action sequences. Fans of the previous two films and watching bad guys being punched or shot or stabbed to death in general will have a lot to love here. Jon’s shootouts are just as fluid and visceral as they’ve ever been, that’s if he’s in a crowd pleasing team up with Halle Berry’s Sofia and her pair of German Shepherds or on his own going Baba Yaga on some vaguely Eastern European henchman’s ass. Oh, and sword fights. There are sword fights in these movies now.
While John fights for his life, the ever foreboding High Table finally rears its head into the series. Due to John’s actions at the end of the previous film, the Table sends enforcers in the form of the steely eyed Adjudicator and a group of sushi chef ninjas out to clean house. This leads to Winston, Charon, and Laurence Fishburne’s Bowery King being given a subplot of their own that breaks up the more intense passages of the film. It makes a nice reprieve from the action that gives us more world building and helps establish the High Table as a truly powerful force within the world of the film.
While Chapter 3 is an absolute blast, it isn’t without its faults. For starters, the action sequences are self-indulgent as hell. Self-indulgent can be good at times. But at some point, when you’ve seen John Judo throw the same opponent for the 13th time or hold some poor bastard down and headshot him for the 2,000th time, you’ll begin to ask yourself if things are beginning to get repetitive. The middle section of the film drags on at times too, but how could it not? As it is largely about John going on a hackneyed walk through the desert to meet a guy named “The Elder” or “The One Above”. I can’t really remember, but it was one of the two. It’s a well-worn trope to take protagonists on the Christ like desert walk, but just because it’s well-worn doesn’t mean that it’s a good trope. Unsurprisingly, that’s the case here too.
Fans of the almost minimalistic tone of the first film who were frustrated with the more over the top nature and world building of the second will likely have the same issues with Chapter 3. It’s big, cartoonish, and utterly self-indulgent. But if that puts you off, than you shouldn’t be reading this in the first place. There’s a reverence for the genre here that is truly something to behold; with familiar faces, Easter eggs, and enough homages to the classics of the past to keep any fan of action movies in a state of gleeful bliss for the duration of the film’s runtime. John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is an action packed and satisfying entry to the series that not only sheds more light on the motive and backstory of its title character, but leaves him in an incredibly exciting place for the next installment in the series.

Before he announced his intentions to play for the University of Kentucky, Justin Rogers’ announcement had a few hiccups.
Like most recruiting announcements, it started late. Like most modern announcements, it came with a video presentation. Instead of testing out the projector during the delay, fans in the stands and at home were forced to wait while they plugged in the video equipment. After almost 15 minutes, the tape finally rolled.
Instead of the quick cut at the end of the video above, Rogers made the announcement by pulling out a UK hat. Current Wildcat and former Oak Park teammate, Marquan McCall, wasted no time to celebrate with his future teammate, nearly tackling Rogers to the floor.
McCall was wearing his UK blue at the ceremony, and he was not alone. Four-star cornerback Enzo Jennings had a UK shirt ready. Will he be the next Oak Park kid to come to Lexington?

Justin Rogers, the No. 1 offensive guard in the country, is about to choose between Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, and Tennessee. Watch his announcement below courtesy of the Detroit Free Press:
By Nick Roush on ©May 20th, 2019 @ 3:00pm
Kentucky is on the verge of landing a commitment from Justin Rogers. Before the star from Detroit, Michigan makes a decision at approximately 4:00 p.m. Monday afternoon, get to know one of the nation’s top football prospects.
1. Rogers is a five-star recruit.
The future Under Armour All-American is the No. 10 prospect in America according to Rivals. Last year the top-ranked offensive guard was one of a handful of rising juniors invited to the Five-Star Challenge, an elite prep football camp typically reserved for the best rising seniors.
Not every recruiting service agrees on Rogers’ ranking or even his position. He’s the No. 9 defensive tackle in the class and No. 91 player in the ESPN 150. Rogers was 247’s No. 14 player in America prior to his senior season. He fell all the way to No. 44 and the No. 2 offensive guard at its conclusion.
Regardless of which rankings system you use, Rogers is a bonafide baller. If he selects UK, he will be the fourth top 15 player to commit to UK in 20 years. Landon Young was 247’s No. 12 player in the 2016 class and Micah Johnson was ESPN’s ninth-ranked player in 2006. Antonio Hall is the only out-of-state commitment ranked so high, falling at No. 13 overall in 2000.
2. Every school wants Rogers.
Maybe not technically every school. He only has offers from 47 of the nation’s 130 (36%) FBS schools. Alabama, LSU, Michigan and Georgia are the biggest names in the mix, but Tennessee is probably UK’s top competition. Even though there’s not an offer from every school, every school in the country would gladly take him on their team for the next four years.
3. UK has a longstanding relationship with Rogers.
How did UK enter the picture with such a sought-after recruit? They started recruiting him before anyone else. Steve Clinkscale extended a UK scholarship offer to Rogers when he was just an eighth grader. The early investment may have a high rate of return.
4. He teamed up with Marquan McCall.
When Clinkscale offered Rogers, he also offered his teammates, 2020 four-star cornerback Enzo Jennings and current Kentucky Wildcat Marquan McCall. The top-ranked player from Michigan in 2018 opted to leave the state to play on the defensive side of the line of scrimmage, rather than play offensive line for the Wolverines. UK is providing Rogers the same opportunity. Can lightning strike twice?
5. Rogers bulldozes opponents.
When the ball is snapped, it looks like Rogers is shot out of a catapult from a three-point stance. It’s not just pure power, it’s how he uses his size to gain leverage on defenders. When he isn’t providing pancakes on run blocks, he’s putting the defender on his heels and taking him on a ride.
Rogers is at his best out of a three-point stance, but he’s also athletic enough to stand up on defense and play on the edge. He’s not at his best when he loses leverage as the low-man, however, it’s impressive to see the big fellow move that well from sideline to sideline. See for yourself.

The NBA playoffs headed up north to Toronto on Sunday as the Toronto Raptors defended home court in a double overtime victory against the Milwaukee Bucks. The victory in game three was the Raptors’ first win in the series.
The Bucks struggled on the offensive side. While Giannis Antetokounmpo managed to still grab 23 rebounds and dish out seven assists, the Bucks’ star player only had a total of twelve points on 5-16 from the field. He also fouled out early in the second overtime which left a huge lane down the paint for the Raptors.
What made the difference in this game was the spectacular defensive performance down the stretch by the Raptors and a huge game for forwards Kawhi Leonard and Pascal Siakam. Leonard ended up with 36 point, nine rebounds, and five assists.
Plus, Siakam was not only a defensive motor all night but also showed why he was named a finalist for NBA’s Most Improved Player. He put up 25 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 steals and the momentum block over Brook Lopez late in the second overtime.

Cats in the game
Two former Cats ended up seeing the floor tonight in Game Three with Bucks point guard, Eric Bledsoe and Raptors guard Jodie Meeks.
Bledsoe has been struggling this series. While he did manage to have his biggest scoring game of the series with 11 points plus 4 rebounds and 5 assists, he continued to struggle from the outside going just 1-6 from three.
Here is what Bledsoe had to say about the game.

Jodie Meeks saw the floor for one minute in the victory but did not put up any shots in the game.
For the first time in these playoffs, the Bucks looked beatable. With Antetokounmpo not having a signature game and the shooting woes all-around, expect the Bucks to come out swinging to push it to a 3-1 lead and back to Milwaukee for Game 5.
Also, look for a better overall game for Bledsoe. He needs to play a bigger role for the Bucks to help his team stay in line for that NBA Finals bid.
Eric Bledsoe is going to have to play at another level for this @Bucks team to win a championship.
