Can’t get enough of the NBA Draft? In case you fall into that category, the people at Valley of the Suns reviewed Phoenix’s selections in video form. Archie Goodwin’s section comes after the 13-minute mark.

We’re all aware of the slide that Nerlens Noel experienced during Thursday’s NBA Draft, but few of us know exactly why he fell to 6th overall. Jeff Goodman of ESPN hypothesized in his latest column and also stated this fall could be a blessing in disguise.

Many are of the opinion that Nerlens Noel has a very high ceiling for his NBA career. He’s tall, has fantastic rim presence on defense, and also infuriates offensive players with his ability to acquire steals. However, he’s offensively limited and injured so that’s where the doubt creeps in. Rodger Sherman of SBNation.com reiterates this information and gives his take on Nerlens’ potential in the world’s premier basketball league.

What fun would it be reviewing 2013’s NBA Draft without a mock for 2014’s NBA Draft? None at all! In case you’d like to see where 2014’s prospects are projected to fall, SBNation.com has you covered. According to this mock, five Kentucky players are first rounders, including Julius Randle who’s predicted to go second overall.

Last night in Louisville, former and current Kentucky Football players were recognized at the Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame. Former Cat, Irv Goode, who played professionally for 13-years, was inducted into the hall of fame during the association’s 11th anniversary. Larry Warford, Avery Williamson, Bud Dupree, and Landon Foster were named All-Commonwealth first team.

    #1 – Great question tho given the class, I see JYoung and MLee as 2-yr players; which brings my question: Would it be better for JRandle to stay two and go #1 in 2015 (assuming everything remains the same b/n now and this time next year)?

    And ditto…Alex Poythress? I am starting to get those feelings again. Those inklings that Poy is going to be a Boss this year.

    I gotta love on Bobcat fans with their reaction to the Zeller ( Big Handsome ) pick. What a bonehead organization to waste on this IU waste of 7′.

    No one in the 2014 class (w/the possible exceptions of Karl Towns and JOkafor) seems poised to be as dominant as JRandle (and certainly not as Wiggs).

    Aren’t the Harrison twins staying 4 years? I’ve asked this multiple times and I’ve been ignored. Did their parents not say they wanted them staying 4 years?
